Khloe Kardashian turns 35 years old today.
By sheer coincidence, this figure represents about the same number of women with whom Tristan Thompson slept back when he was dating the veteran reality star.
And yet... despite his incessant cheating and despite the fact that Khloe finally kicked her dishonst boyfriend to the curb many months ago, Thompson has reached out to his famous ex-girlfriend on Instagram.
In honor of the aforementioned milestone occasion, Tristan shared the photo below on his official account and wrote as a caption:
Happy birthday @khloekardashian...
You are the most beautiful human I have ever met inside and out. Thank you for being an amazing mommy to our princess True. She is blessed to have someone like you to look up to.
I wish you nothing but more success and sending you positive blessing your way. Enjoy your day Koko.
To be clear, this is a very nice message.
To also be clear, Tristan better believe that Khloe is beautiful and amazing, considering she stuck by him after his first cheating scandal (which took place WHILE SHE WAS PREGNANT!) and considering she hasn't really trashed him much in public at all following his second.
So, to reiterate, this was a very nice message.
But we can't help but wonder whether Thompson was aiming beyond nice; could he be making a play here to actually reconcile with Khloe? In a romantic sense?
Just a few weeks ago, you may recall, Khloe said openly that she still loves Tristan.
She's also praised him as a father to True on multiple occasions, as the exes appear to still spend time with each other in the wake of their contentious break-up.
Trust us, as celebrity gossip followers for many years, far crazier things have happened than these two deciding to give their relationship one more try.
That said, there's been chatter that Khloe has already moved on and is dating some new mystery man.
We can't confirm this hook-up, but we can say that the scandalous Thompson-Jordyn Woods kiss is playing out in front of millions of people at the moment, as the final two episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians this season are focusing on this inappropriate spit-swap.
Khloe made many headlines on the latest installment by implying that Tristan threatened suicide after his affair was exposed to the world.
“He’s like, ‘I can’t stop thinking about you and what mess I have caused,’" she told Scott Disick during an on-air conversation, adding:
“He’s doing this to get a reaction out of me. Oh, so I’m just allowed to say ‘I’m going to kill myself’ at any time? That’s crazy.”
Thompson, it should be noted, claims to have never made this threat and sources have claimed he's livid that Khloe hinted at it.
But he can't be all that mad, can he? Look at what he just wrote to Khloe on her birthday.
