Tristan Thompson pounds the glass on a basketball court for his living.
Because he has also pounded so many pieces of tail while dating Khloe Kardashian, however, it's finally clear -- once and for all -- that the reality star will never rebound with the power forward ever again.
For certain this time.
Khloe made this as evident as possible on Saturday when she Tweeted to her millions of followers that she's had a change of heart.
After previously focusing her ire for Thompson cheating on her several days ago on the subject of his infidelity, close friend Jordyn Woods, Kardashian now admits that it takes two to tango.
And Tristan obviously led this duplicitous dance two weeks back.
“This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have,” Khloe wrote today, referencing Thompson' previous cheating scandal and adding:
“Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me, wasn’t such a shock as the first time.”
She then concluded:
"What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister.
"But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault."
We bolded this last for emphasis ourselves.
It's important to note because Khloe had said almost the opposite on Friday afternoon.
After Woods appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith's Facebook talk show, taking very little blame for the kiss with Thompson and insisting she did not cause the Thompon/Kardashian break-up, Khloe jumped on social media and lashed out.
She blasted Woods as a liar, Tweeting the following as Jordyn:
“Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story.
"BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!”
Many social media users were surprised she didn't go off on Thompson as well in this manner.
But Khloe explained her viewpoint and her public stance on the matter as follows;
“Tristan is equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child.
"Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY.
"If Tristan were to lie publicly about what conspired, then yes I would address him publicly as well.”
There was some logic to this take, but Khloe appears to have come around, realizing that Thompson was the one who had vowed to remain loyal, not Woods.
Thompson, of course, was also caught cheating on Khloe while she was pregnant toward the end of 2017.
The pair eventually reconciled and seemed to be co-parenting their daughter, True, rather successfully for most of the first few months after she was born.
But they had been growing apart ever since the NBA season tipped off this past October, considering how little time they actually got to spend together as a result.
So, yes, they weren't on great terms when Thompson invited Woods back to his home on a Sunday night in February.
But that's clearly no excuse for Tristan and Jordyn to kiss, which the later confessed did definitely happen.
“It was like a kiss on the lips, but no tongue kiss, no making out,” Woods explained to Smith in her interview, adding:
“I allowed myself to be in that position. And when alcohol’s involved, people make dumb moves or people get caught up in the moment.”
Woods strongly denied doing anything more than kissing Thompson, admitting “shouldn’t even have been" at his house, but also insisting that she is “no homewrecker.”
“I know I’m not the reason Tristan and Khloé aren’t together,” Woods said.
Khloe now finds herself in a terrible, humiliating place... again.
Her boyfriend is a cheater. Her good pal is at the center of this scandal. She isn't really sure where to turn.
And she's being very honest about this with her Twitter followers, trying to take a positive view on everything that has transpired.
"I have to move on with my life & count my blessings, my family, my health, & my beautiful baby True," Khloe concluded today.
Hang in there, Khloe. It's always darkest before the light.
