Tristan Thompson shared a subtle message with his girlfriend Khloe Kardashian amid the drama. The couple, who began romance in 2016, have overcome their fair share of relationship hurdles.
In September 2017, a source revealed to People that the couple were expecting their first child together. “Yes, Khloe and Tristan are pregnant and they are absolutely thrilled,” the insider said. Kardashian confirmed the news months later in a touching post shared to Instagram. Months after Kardashian’s post, however, TMZ released a video of Thompson kissing two unidentified women at a hookah lounge. Kardashian gave birth to their daughter, True Thompson, in March 2018 — amid a spate of cheating allegations involving Thompson.
Despite the drama, Kardashian recently confirmed that the couple will welcome their second child together through a surrogate. Days later, Thompson was photographed holding hands with a mystery woman in Greece. Now the NBA player – who rarely addresses public controversy – appears to be speaking out about the scandal.
Tristan Thompson shares a message about independence
Tristan Thompson shared a cryptic message on his social media accounts that appears to be related to his relationship with Khloe Kardashian. “1. You are not promised anything. 2. Nobody owes you anything. 3. You have all the responsibility in your life,” read the quote Thompson posted on his Instagram story (via Us Weekly). “Understand these three rules as early as possible and realize that independence is the way forward.”
Kardashian also shared an equally cryptic message, posting a lengthy note on her Instagram story. “Be thankful for the difficult times,” she wrote. “You grow in times like these. Be grateful for your limits. Because they give you opportunities to improve.”
Ultimately, the exes appear to have put their romantic relationship behind them. A source telling E! News on July 13 that the couple “have not spoken outside of matters of co-parenting.” Kardashian apparently confirmed the split herself after “liking” a post on Instagram showing her ex in Greece with the unnamed woman.
Khloé Kardashian’s ex has burdened her second child with Tristan Thompson
Khloé Kardashian’s former partner has opened up about her relationship with Tristan Thompson. Kardashian, who shares daughter True with Thompson, confirmed on July 13 that they would be welcoming their second baby via surrogate. “We can confirm that True will have a sibling who was conceived in November,” a rep told People on behalf of Kardashian. They added: “Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We would like to ask for kindness and privacy so Khloe can focus on her family.”
Lamar Odom, who was married to Kardashian for four years before their split, spoke about the update in a video interview with Page Six, according to The US Sun. When asked what he thought about Kardashian having a second child with Thompson, Odom first asked if Kardashian and Thompson were together as a couple, to which the Page Six reporter said they didn’t believe it. “She could have yelled at me for that,” Odom said, laughing in response to the news. Though they’re no longer together, Kardashian and Thompson are focused on moving forward in their family unit as devoted co-parents.
Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have made it their mission to be “healthy and happy co-parents.”
Following Tristan Thompson’s recent post on independence, he and Khloé Kardashian are prioritizing their shared parenting roles. A source close to Kardashian revealed to Hollywood Life that Thompson has “finally given up” on getting back together with Kardashian and the two are “100% done for good.” “All [Kardashian] wants them to be healthy and happy co-parents so she has forgiven him and wants her family to forgive him too,” the source explained. “She sees no point in holding on to the negativity and anger, but that doesn’t mean she’s letting what he did slide.” The source added that Kardashian “will always love Tristan,” but “no more in love with him” after cheating in the past.
One of Kardashian’s latest social media posts shows that her focus is on motherhood as she recently shared photos of her first child with Thompson, True. In the Instagram pictures, True can be seen on a private jet, grinning and munching on potato chips alongside some stuffed animals. “My little lady,” Kardashian captioned the post. While the two ex-boyfriends are on the verge of welcoming their next child through surrogacy, these latest updates seem to show that they are positively approaching their new chapter as co-parents of two.
