On Monday, October 3, The Good American co-founder, 38, posted an Instagram video in which she and Kim Kardashian discussed the Thompson paternity scandal. One hour after Kardashian’s online post, the 31-year-old NBA player posted a shirtless selfie.
Thompson captioned the picture on Instagram Story with the phrase “Let’s work,” next to a clock that read 6 A.M.
The Canadian native posted on social media after noticing the consequences of his personal life on The Kardashians. Khloé and Kim, 41, addressed her reaction to the professional basketball player welcoming a child with Maralee Nichols in a recent episode, which premiered on Thursday, September 29.
“It’s a lot, but I just like to isolate,” the Strong Looks Better Naked author told Kim about her ups and downs with Thompson. “And deal with things on my own and everyone has problems. … You just gotta deal with that.”
She added: “Going through what I went through with Tristan was incredibly hard. The hardest part about it all is training yourself to un-love, someone. This was my life for six years. … Just because somebody does you dirty doesn’t mean you fall out of love with them instantly.”
Khloé also revealed that she had to decline a question from her ex-boyfriend.
“I said I need to make sure this is a totally different relationship because I want to be proud to say I am engaged to anyone. That is why I said, ‘I am not comfortable accepting this because I am not excited to tell my family,’” she shared in a confessional. “And as hurtful as it was for him to hear it was the truth. I would never accept something and give someone false hope.”
Khloé actually accepted Thompson’s proposal in February 2021, a source exclusively revealed to Us Weekly shortly after the episode aired. In the aftermath of his paternity drama, they broke up.
In the lengthy statement, Thompson issued an apology to his ex-fiancée, writing, “Khloé, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.
You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
According to the Hulu series, Khloé’s son with Thompson will not be mentioned again during the season.
“I have shot all of season 2 with not talking about this event that is happening in my life simply because I wanted to keep it private and I wasn’t ready to share it,” Khloe, who also shares 4-year-old daughter True with Thompson, told cameras during Thursday’s episode.
