Kim Kardashian opened up on Khloe and Tristan's relationship status on 'Ellen'
It would be safe to say that the last few months in the Kardashian family have been eventful. Firstly, there were the continued rumours that three of the sisters were pregnant and the subsequent press storm that followed the rumours. Then, Kim had her baby via a surrogate, Kylie Jenner gave birth to Stormi and Khloe Kardashian recently gave birth to True. But, despite True being Khloe's first child and a joyous occasion, the pregnancy was dogged by infidelity on the behalf of her partner, Tristan Thompson.
In the weeks building up to the birth, Thompson was pictured apparently getting close to various other women, reportedly across a timeline of around a year. However, despite the seemingly concrete evidence that her baby daddy had been playing away, it's believed that Khloe is committed to trying to make the relationship work.
"She has one foot out the door but is also holding on to the fact that her and Tristan can make it work," a source told E! News. "She hasn't given up on him yet, but also hasn't really been focusing on their relationship. When they see each other, it is all about the baby and parenting together. Khloe has fallen in love with him all over again, watching him be a dad to True, but [she also] knows she needs to really take a step back and make the right decision."
Khloe's decision has been harder by the fact that "everyone close to her thinks she needs to split from Tristan and has told her she can do this on her own."
However, her family and friends also realize that "it's her life" and that "Khloe needs to do what's right for their baby."
Despite the constant headlines and worldwide interest, Khloe "isn't focusing" on the cheating allegations and "is trying to move forward." But, understandably, the source claims that Khloe is "quite devastated."
While Khloe or Tristan are yet to discuss the allegations, Kim Kardashian has weighed in with her opinion on the whole ordeal, describing the situation that her sister finds herself in as "f**ked up."
"Like, I don’t even know how to describe it other than it’s just so f**ked up. We really were rooting for Khloe. And we still are," said Kim to the daytime talk show host.
"She’s so strong and she’s doing the best she can. It’s a really sad situation all over."
The candid personality continued, saying that she doesn't want to discuss the situation in too much detail:
"I kind of made this rule with my brother: if there’s a baby involved, I’m not going talk—I’m going to keep it cute and keep it classy and not talk too bad on [the parent]—I’m going to try not to say anything too negative because one day, True is going to see this, and it’s just, you know, so messed up."
Kim also said that Khloe's main focus in on the child.
"You know, I think she’s not thinking of anything," Kim said;
"I think she just wants a clear head and just wants to be alone with her baby and figure that out and the family’s flown out there a few times."
"I think it must be so hard to have your heart broken and fall in love all in a day or two, all happening at the same time and I think she just needs some [space]."
However, while Kim has tried to remain dignified in it all, she did fire off the ultimate millennial-diss by unfollowing Thompson on Instagram yesterday. Despite this, Kylie, Kendall, Kourtney and Kris all still follow the much-maligned NBA player.
Kim's response to the affair may have been dignified, but you can imagine that, behind closed doors, Thompson has been getting an earful from the Kardashian-clan. Hopefully, for the sake of the child, the couple can work things out.
