‘KUWTK’ Recap: Khloe Admits to Relationship Struggles With Tristan

Love hurts! While on a trip to Khloé Kardashian’s home in Cleveland, Malika Haqq pressed Khloé for answers about her strained relationship with Tristan Thompson a few months before his February 2019 cheating scandal with family friend Jordyn Woods.

Ahead of their Cleveland trip, sister Kim Kardashian warned Malika that trouble might be brewing between Khloé and Tristan. The KKW Beauty mogul relayed the story about Khloé’s psychic reading in Bali saying the psychic healer told Khloé she “has, like, a lot of hurt in her heart because her guy has really hurt her, and she said that she’s been going back and forth and can’t make a decision in the relationship.” Kim agreed with the psychic’s assessment saying, “I so feel that.”

 

After arriving in Cleveland, Malika observed firsthand that Tristan’s grueling basketball schedule meant Khloé spent a majority of her time alone, with their baby, True Thompson. In a testimonial, Malika confessed, “I think it happens in a lot of relationships. … People just don’t have the same schedules and they’re not able to do things.” She then added that with Tristan and Khloé, “his career comes first.”

Malika watched on as Khloé methodically folded the sheets on her and Tristan’s bed because, according to Khloé, Tristan prefers when Khloé personally makes the bed over the hired help. The ever-doting best friend, Malika warned Khloé, “It’s important that you take care of yourself the way you take care of others.”

 

While at dinner Malika asked a burning question: “You’re happy, right?” Khloé responded that she was happy, but “it’s really hard to regain trust.” Referring to Tristan’s public cheating scandal that occurred when she was days away from delivering their child, Khloé was adamant that her “energy” surrounding baby True was all that mattered to her. She continued, “If that starts to be affected by me wondering, ‘What’s Tristan doing? Where is he?’ I will be out in two seconds.”

She then revealed that Tristan will often “count” the time that had passed since he cheated on her, saying, “It’s been seven months.” Khloé, who had no idea Tristan was about to engage in another very public cheating scandal just a few months after taping, added, “I love him, but still, I’m not gonna act like nothing’s wrong.”

We also followed Kim as she organized and executed an actual camping — no, not glamping, camping — trip at the behest of her eldest child, North West. “She saw The Parent Trap and now she wants to go camping,” Kim revealed to sister Kourtney Kardashian. Kim, reluctant to rough it, eventually relented and bought camping supplies, dragging along friends Larsa Pippen, Tracey Romulus and their daughters. Despite cold weather and a fruitless fishing trip, the group survived.

While Khloé was emoting and Kim was camping, Scott Disick revealed the launch of his latest business venture — a clothing line called Talentless. Based on accusations that reality stars have no talent, the cheeky name proved to be a secret passion project for Scott, who admitted he was hesitant to use his family connections when launching the product. After doing a photo shoot for the fashion line of shirts and sweats, he confessed, “I just wanted to do this on my own and start something that had no involvement of anyone else.”

The episode concluded with a teaser for next week, which included a close-up shot of Jordyn as she attended the annual Kardashian Christmas party. Let the nail-biting commence!

Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs on E! Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.

Lamar Odom: Tristan Thompson was ‘as stupid as he was’

OHMYGOSSIP — Lamar Odom thinks Tristan Thompson was “as stupid as he was”.
The basketball player dated Khloe Kardashian for seven years until 2016 and has criticised her most recent partner Tristan – with whom she shares 13-month-old True – for cheating on her.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Lamar said: “It’s a bad situation. She doesn’t deserve that. She’s a beautiful person from the inside out. You know, (it’s) just a man being as stupid as I was. Just a bad decision.”
Khloe, 34, recently said there is “no bad blood” between her and Lamar, and she still thinks he’s an “incredible person”.
She shared: “We speak every now and then. There’s no issues. There’s no bad blood. There’s no anything. It just didn’t work out and I think he’s an incredible person and I just want the best for him. But there’s no negative anything.”
However, it may be a while before Khloe is ready to give it another shot with Lamar, as she recently said she’s sworn off dating for a while following her split from Tristan after he locked lips with Jordyn Woods.
Asked if she’d put herself on any dating websites or apps, she said: “No, I’m not on anything. I don’t care to be. I’m so in love in True, and being with her, and enjoying every moment. I know that probably sounds like the typical answer but I’m working. I’m working on myself – mind, body, soul, that other cliche. I’m just happy and I want to filter through whatever I feel like I need to filter through, but my focus right now is True. I don’t feel a sense of urgency to be in a relationship, or even to go on a date. I don’t want to.”

Kim Kardashian Says Tristan Thompson Will ‘Never Change’ as He Cheats on Khloé on KUWTK

Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians took fans inside Tristan Thompson‘s cheating scandal — and revealed how Khloé Kardashian and her famous family reacted in real time.

When photos and videos surfaced of Thompson, 27, getting close to another woman just two days before Khloé, 34, welcomed their baby girl on April 12, the mom-to-be was nesting in Cleveland. As the news broke, cameras captured Kim, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie all reacting separately back in Los Angeles, furiously texting one another about it.

“There’s video of Tristan making out with a girl last night,” said Kim, 38. “Khloé’s going to die. She’s literally going to go into labor over this.”

“I can’t even imagine being in Khloé’s shoes, just how reckless it all seems —this is really shocking and obviously heartbreaking,” added Kourtney, 39. “The whole thing makes me disgusted.”

“She kicked him out. He left the house,” revealed Kendall, 23. “We’re trying to get her to come home.”

It turns out that Kylie, 21, was the one to break the news to her sister.

“No one had the courage to tell Khloé because we knew she was days away from giving birth,” Kylie said. “We didn’t want to stress her out, but we knew that it was the right thing to do. So I’m the one that told Khloé. I didn’t want to hurt her feelings, but I felt like she should hear from one of us versus on the internet.”

Finally, Khloé called Kim crying, admitting that she wanted to fly back to Los Angeles but wasn’t sure if she could travel so late in her pregnancy.

“You just have to worry about yourself right now and be calm,” Kim said.

“I can’t be calm,” Khloé said. “Not right now.”

Kim admitted to feeling “helpless” over the situation as Khloé tried to figure out what she wanted to do.

“She’s confused, she doesn’t know what to do and we don’t really know what to do, but we want to be there for her,” Kim said. “Honestly, I’m in shock. We love Tristan. This is honestly nothing that we suspected. We thought she finally found her Prince Charming, happy ending. And then f—. It’s just, why her? It just really, really sucks.”

And Kim had been hearing about even more rumors of Thompson’s infidelity.

“Honestly, so many more stories are coming out,” she said. “So many friends are calling me with so many more things. I told her, ‘What are you going to get out of him? Think about it. You’re going to be worried and nervous and have an insecure life, because if he’s not faithful now, he’ll never change.’ ”

“When one thing comes out you’re kind of like, well, okay, maybe the video’s old or maybe it’s a misunderstanding. Because a picture doesn’t always tell the full story,” Kim added. “But then two more stories come out. This is just crazy. Now you know it’s true.”

But before Khloé could decide the future of her relationship with Thompson, she went into labor. As her mom and sisters made arrangements to get to Cleveland as soon as possible, Khloé asked that they remain civil when coming face-to-face with Thompson, at least in the delivery room.

“It’s like, everyone wants me to make a decision right this second and I just want to go and give birth and focus on that and try to enjoy this and try to enjoy it with him, as crazy as that sounds,” Khloé said. “I want to enjoy this with him. I don’t want any negativity in the delivery room. I don’t want anybody to talk about it, make me feel uncomfortable or make him feel uncomfortable. Let’s just act normal. Give me a minute.”

Kim agreed to remain cordial — but not without cracking a few jokes about how she would greet him.

“I’m going to look at him and just be like …,” she said, miming cutting her throat.

“I know how important it is for Khloé to have Tristan there, and I actually really respect that,” Kourtney said. “But it’s definitely going to be awkward. It’s going to be hard to even look at him or even be in the same room with him. It’s like, you are f—ing with all of us when you disrespect one of us.”

As PEOPLE previously reported, Khloé ultimately decided to stand by Thompson, and they spent the summer as a family, rebuilding their relationship in Los Angeles. In recent weeks, however, the couple hit another rough patch.

According to a source, the new mom has been having a “really tough” time and “still has a lot of hurt and anger.”

“Khloé wants so badly for True to have a happy family,” said the source. “She wants to do what’s best for her daughter, and to her that means being with Tristan.”

But Khloé’s mom and sisters “aren’t happy” about her move back to Cleveland and “think she deserves better,” the source said. “They definitely don’t trust him.”
