It's been three months since Tristan Thompson was caught cheating with Jordyn Woods and promptly kicked to the curb by Khloe Kardashian.
Fans applauded Khloe for making the difficult decision to give her baby daddy the boot, but many also feared that she would eventually cave and allow him yet another opportunity to break her heart.
After all, Khloe got back together with Tristan the first time he cheated.'
Sure, on that occasion, Tristan wasn't caught sleeping with her little sister's best friend, but he was busted banging just about every groupie that crossed his path as Khloe sat at home in freakin' Cleveland carrying his child.
The thinking among many fans is that if Khloe can forgive that, she can forgive anything.
And recent reports that Khloe and Tristan communicate on a daily basis don't do much to inspire confidence.
“Khloe has to talk to him and will have to talk to him for the rest of her life,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
“They went through a period where she wasn’t communicating with him at all, but since True’s birthday they have been in constant communication.”
A second source confirms that Khloe cut all ties with Tristan after the cheating scandal, but she recently re-opened the lines of communication.
But don't worry -- there's no reason to believe she'll be making the same mistake for a third time.
The insiders say that Khloe is only communicating with Tristan for the sake of the couple's daughter ... for the most part, anyway.
“They went through a period where she wasn’t communicating with him at all, but she couldn’t just shut him out of their baby girl’s life because that isn’t fair to him,” the second source Radar.
“To be honest, there is a part of Khloe that thinks she can move past all of that and she even thinks that maybe he deserves another chance at love.”
Yes, apparently there's a part of Khloe that still imagines a future with Tristan.
But should she ever decide to act on that, we feel confident her mother and sisters will tie her to a chair until she comes to her senses.
For now, Khloe is just doing what she can to ensure that Tristan remains a major part of his daughter's life, and we commend her for that.
“For now she just wants to make sure that True sees her daddy as much as possible,” the source said.
“When he is in L.A. which is pretty frequently now, Khloe is giving him full access to True. That is important to the both of them.”
