Tristan Thompson and Khloé Kardashian could easily have their own solo reality series. The couple’s drama has been non-stop due to Thompson’s many cheating scandals. Kardashian and the NBA player share their adorable daughter True, but the relationship has been on and off since she was born in 2018.
