Khloe Kardashian is currently hurt and in total confusion over reports that her on and off boyfriend Tristan Thompson has fathered a third child with personal trainer Maralee Nichols. It’s reported that before Tristan cheated on Khloe with Maralee, she thought he would change and be a good man, but she was probably dreaming. Once a cheater, always a cheater.
Now, People Magazine says that Khloe’s friends are encouraging her to dump Tristan Thompson once and for all in order to have her peace of mind.
On the heels of the news that Tristan Thompson allegedly fathered a child with a woman he cheated on Khloé Kardashian with, a source tells PEOPLE that the Good American mogul previously “believed that he would change.”
According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, the woman, Maralee Nichols, is suing Thompson for child support and pregnancy-related fees after she said they conceived a child together in March. She gave birth to the baby boy last week, her rep told PEOPLE.
The Sacramento Kings player confessed to having sex with Nichols during at least one encounter, per the documents. The source says Kardashian, 37, “knows about the baby” and confirms that she and Thompson, 30, were together in March. The former couple share daughter True, 3, and Thompson is also dad to 4-year-old son Prince, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
The insider says that Kardashian had friends encouraging her “over and over again” not to take Thompson back after his past cheating scandals, but ultimately remained with him “because she always believed that he would change” and wanted to keep the family intact for True.
“She is just a really great person and wants to see the positive in people,” the source says, adding, “It’s just a sad situation to her.”
The source also said Thompson and Kardashian were “doing great” while quarantined together during the COVID-19 lockdown, but that Kardashian “knew things would change” as soon as he returned to the NBA. “She was just hopeful that he would stay faithful and loyal to her,” says the source.
In other Khloe Kardashian news, she was seen for the first time in public following the Tristan Thompson-Maralee Nichols brouhaha.
Most people believe there is better than a 50% chance that Khloe takes Tristan back at some point. In the grand scheme of things, this isn’t even the worst thing he has done to her during their relationship. He was literally caught in 4k cheating on her while she was nine months pregnant. He once had a 7some while they were together. What he did with Maralee Nichols was probably a five on his Khloe cheating scale. Never even close to a 10.
