When the world first learned that Tristan Thompson had been caught cheating on Khloe Kardashian, it was widely assumed that she would promptly kick his philandering ass to the curb.
After all, Khloe has long enjoyed a reputation as the most headstrong Kardashian, and she’s typically not one to broker any BS, particularly from the men she dates.
But to the surprise of millions who admire Khloe for her boldness, the 34-year-old decided to give Tristan a second chance.
And for a while there, it looked as though the relationship might actually work.
Tristan moved to LA during the NBA offseason so that he could be closer to Khloe and baby True.
And throughout that time, Khloe regularly posted "happy family" photos in which she and Tristan could be seen smiling alongside their bundle of joy.
But once Tristan returned to Cleveland to rejoin the Cavs, things seemed to change abruptly.
These days, Tristan makes very few appearances on Khloe’s Instagram page, and insiders say there’s good reason for that.
According to a new report from People magazine, Khloe “rarely talks about” Tristan these days, and it doesn’t seem especially concerned with what — or who — he might be doing.
“Khloe and True are happy in Los Angeles. They spend very little time in Cleveland, where Tristan is,” a source tells the magazine.
“She very much acts like a single mom.”
Yes, it sounds as though Khloe hasn’t officially pulled the plug on her relationship — but she’s no longer actively dating Tristan.
Fortunately, it also seems that she’s not terribly upset about the situation.
Insiders say Khloe tried to make the relationship work primarily for her daughter’s sake.
These days, however, True is her whole world, and she’s perfectly happy devoting all of her time to attending to the 1-year-old’s needs.
“Her whole life is True,” the source says.
“Khloé is a great mom. It’s so obvious how much she loves being a mom," the insider adds.
"She likes that True is a bit older now — they attend classes with other babies True’s age and Khloé is making sure she has friends.”
Amazingly, it seems like this situation may have worked out well for everyone involved.
Khloe got the baby she always wanted; Tristan gets to be a part of his daughter’s life while still partying with groupies every night — and True doesn’t have to deal with constant bickering from parents who stayed together for her sake.
