Tristan Thompson feels 'trapped' in his relationship with Khloé Kardashian, source says
Are you ready for another ride on the roller coaster that is Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's relationship? If so, hold on to your safety bar and try not to hurl. After months of pleasant cruising, we are about to take a heart-stopping 96-degree drop.
The same week Khloé gave birth to True, reports broke that Tristan was cheating. While Tristan was in New York for a Cleveland Cavaliers game, the paparazzi spotted the basketball player walking into a hotel with a strip club bartender. At the time, TMZ posted a video of Tristan getting intimate with two women at a hookah lounge in Washington, DC. The footage was recorded when Khloé was three months pregnant, indicating that his philandering was going on for a while.
The Kardashian family responded the news in the most savage way possible: unfollowing Tristan on social media. (So harsh!) But then Khloé traveled to Cleveland to give birth, and invited Tristan to be in the delivery room. Sources said that she still loved the NBA star and wanted to give him another chance. On social media, the critics scoffed, "Once a cheater, always a cheater." (In 2016, Tristan cheated on his pregnant wife, Jordan Craig, to be with Khloé.)
For a while, Khloé and Tristan defied the skeptics. The couple returned to Los Angeles in June, with their three-month-old daughter, True. Khloé slammed rumors that she was holding Tristan 'hostage.' Tristan posted a steamy Snapchat video of him kissing Khloé. Khloé shared a super cute video of Tristan dancing with True. By all appearances, the couple seemed happier than ever. A source told US Weekly that the Kardashians were "so happy." "They know that in order to have Khloé back in their lives, they have to accept him."
Last week a crack appeared in the pristine painting of domestic life. Lisa Stanley, a source close to Kris Jenner, claimed that Khloé and Tristan were working through their problems in couple's therapy. "One thousand percent they are working through couple’s therapy," Stanley said in her Celeb HQ interview, according to the Daily Mail. " She’s working hard; he’s working hard. You can’t just earn trust back in two months." However, Khloé angry responded to this rumor, throwing shade with the Instagram comment, "Who is Lisa Stanley?"
Well, apparently Lisa Stanley knew what she was talking about. A source told US Weekly that the couple is not on the best of terms. "Khloé and Tristan are still not fully OK," says the insider. "They act like they are when they’re in front of others, but it’s all a show at this point.”
Another source told US Weekly that Tristan quit going to therapy sessions, and feels 'trapped.' "Tristan is feeling trapped in a bad relationship," says the second source. “He’s no longer going with Khloé for sessions. He just didn’t feel it was helping to discuss s—t that happened months ago. He wants to go back to Cleveland ASAP."
Will the couple patch things up, or is this the end? We'll have to wait and see, as the roller coaster continues.
