Khloe Kardashian would like to make something very clear.
You wanna drag Tristan Thompson's name through the mud? Go right ahead. That guy is a cheater and a liar and a total loser who only has an NBA title because he played with LeBron James.
But the name she has worked so hard to keep clean and admirable?
Don't you dare dully it, Internet users!
Khloe has felt a need to speak out in her own defense after reports surfaced that alleged she started dating Thompson back in the summer of 2016 -- when he was still with then-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
Moreover, when Craig was pregnant with his first kid.
According to court documents Craig filed this past November (as part of her child support battle against Thompsin), the Instagram model wrote that Thompson and Kardashian got together when she was still involved with the basketball player.
"Their relationship went viral and everything took a turn for the worst,” Jordan recalls in these legal papers, adding:
“Every day, several articles were published worldwide mocking my new unfortunate reality... my pregnancy would now become one of the most popular gossip headlines."
Craig never refers here to Khloe by name... but come on, right?
(Plus, photos were published in August of 2016 of Khloe and Tristan on vacation.)
Under fire for her supposed role in Thompson and Craig's split, Kardashian fired back last night on her Instagram Story.
“I’m disappointed that I even feel the need to post this but… I need to say my truth. Take it as you will," she started, prior to delving into a lengthy explanation.
“My truth is: I met Tristan because HE CHOSE to go on a blind date with me.
"A mutual friend set us up. After going on some dates, Tristan told me that he had an ex that was pregnant. Obviously, I was reluctant about us continuing to date or start a relationship.”
Craig, for the record, gave birth to a son named Prince in December 2016.
She has stated that Thompson is a deadbeat father to this two-year old.
Kardashian goes on to say that the power forward “pleaded with me that the relationship was over long before we met.”
And, let's face it, Thompson is clearly prone to lying about sex and love and romances and basically everything, as Khloe herself sadly knows well.
“He had me talk with his most inner circle,” she writes.
“He showed me physical poof [sic] (correspondence between the two) and had me on calls with his lawyers to prove his point. His best friends, business associates and even his mother told me, him and his ex were broken up before we met.”
(Note to Khloe: If a guy has you on the phone with his attorney to try and prove something about his love life, maybe you ought to take that as a weird warning sign next time and just move on.)
“This is my truth!” Khloe continued.
“The truth that I believed and trusted. If for any reason this is NOT in fact the truth, I am so completely and utterly sorry that TRISTAN and his inner circle would lie on something like this!”
We probably do believe Khloe here.
She has no history of getting between a man and his girlfriend and, to reiterate, Tristan Thompson is a known liar all around.
“I pray my truth is in fact that,” the reality star says. “Lord knows I pray but now, I really don’t know what to believe.
“Truthfully, from the deepest parts of my soul, I am sorry! I’m sorry for any pain that has been created either way. No woman deserves to go through anything like this!”
This is MY TRUTH.
The questions therefore now turns to our readers:
Are you buying it?
