It’s been a bumpy ride for Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson. Though the couple split in late 2021 after it was revealed Thompson had fathered a child with someone else, the NBA star will always have a place in Kardashian’s life. The couple share one daughter, True, and shocked fans in July by announcing they were expecting a second child via surrogate. “We can confirm that True will have a sibling who was conceived in November,” Kardashian’s statement read through Page Six. “Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We would like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloé can focus on her family.” The statement made no mention of Thompson, leading many to speculate that Kardashian will be raising the child alone.
Parental plans aside, Thompson’s recent behavior has been taken for granted. With Baby #2 Expecting Any Day Now, E! News reported that the baller has been relaxing on Mykonos, a Greek island known for its party scene. Rather than bringing the couple back together, this latest baby seems to point to Kardashian and Thompson’s different priorities. An insider told E! that they “haven’t spoken outside of co-parenting matters since December,” adding that “the baby was conceived via surrogate before it became known to Khloé and the public that Tristan was having a baby with someone else.” After all Following the drama, the Good American co-founder took to Instagram to share her feelings.
Khloé Kardashian makes a social media statement
On July 23, Khloé Kardashian shared a TikTok video on Instagram that hinted at her true feelings amid the baby drama with Tristan Thompson. In the video, TikToker @kgrahamtv spoke about the importance of not letting your past hold you back from moving into your future. “Some people only knew what they knew about you. They have no idea what’s really new about you,” he said. “You know, I’ve found that people hold you hostage to your past because it helps them validate how they wanted to feel about you.”
It makes sense that Kardashian would want to focus on her future instead of grappling with the past with Thompson, but that might be difficult given the spotlight on her life. According to Elle, Kardashian “was reluctant” to share her surrogacy news because she was afraid of how fans would react. People have slammed her for continuing to work with Thompson, even if it’s strict co-parenting.
The reality star subtly spoke out against the ruling, captioning a fan account post, “…Khloé and Tristan are both single and according to Khloé’s rep, they haven’t spoken to each other since December alongside co-parenting.” .” Kardashian also uploaded cryptic posts of her own to Instagram, including a recent shot of her in a bathing suit with her back to the camera. “There’s no point in looking back,” she wrote.
