By the looks of things on social media, Tristan Thompson has spent this summer trying to look like a good dad.
Now, he's using social media to defend the reputation of someone else -- someone more deserving.
Tristan is finally standing up for Khloe, saying that she's never been a "side piece" and doesn't deserve the backlash she receives.
There are always, always rumors about Tristan's activities. He took to Twitter to try to clear the air.
"I have spent the last few months training for my upcoming nba season," Tristan writes. "And making sure that I am in the best shape possible."
"I have not been on vacations at all this summer," he clarifies.
"And," Tristan emphasizes. "The current rumors spreading are 100% false."
We're not even sure which specific rumors he may mean -- that's how often Tristan's alleged activities are the subject of speculation.
It was, however, Tristan's next tweet that really caught people's attention.
"Also," Tristan announced to his legions of fans and followers. "When I met Khloe I was SINGLE."
"The negative comments that are constantly being directed towards her are unnecessary," he continued.
Tristan affirmed: "She does not deserve all this backlash for my wrong doings."
To borrow a folksy expression: well ain't that the truth.
"Both Khloe and Jordan have been nothing but great mothers to my kids," Tristan praised.
Khloe has also spoken out about reports that say that Tristan was still with a pregnant Jordan Craig when he hooked up with her.
"MY TRUTH IS: I met Tristan because HE CHOSE to go on a blind date with me," Khloe shared.
She added that "A mutual friend set us up."
“After going on some dates, Tristan told me that he had an ex that was pregnant," Khloe revealed.
"Obviously," she admitted. "I was reluctant about us continuing to date or start a relationship."
Khloe shared in her Instagram Stories that Tristan assured her that what he had with Jordan "was over long before we met."
“He had me talk with his most inner circle,” Khloe detailed. “He showed me physical [proof] (correspondence between the two)."
"And had me on calls with his lawyers to prove his point," she added.
"His best friends, business associates, and even his mother told me," Khloe recalled. "Him and his ex were broken up before we met."
Sometimes, people can seem almost too prepared to prove their case.
Khloe continued, writing that she "believed and trusted” Tristan at that time.
“If for any reason this is NOT in fact the truth," Khloe expressed. "I am so completely and utterly sorry that TRISTAN and his inner circle would lie on something like this!”
“I pray my truth is in-fact that," she added. "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!" Khloe wailed.
"I’m sorry for any pain that has been created either way," she concluded. "No woman deserves to go through anything like this! This is MY TRUTH."
