Khloe Kardashian is finally, finally speaking about what Tristan Thompson put her through with his massive cheating scandal.
Now that Keeping Up With The Kardashians is getting into the story of baby True’s birth, fans are going to see that scandal unfold.
And Khloe is admitting that reliving that time is “painful.” Is she ready to ditch Tristan?
“I feel so bad for @khloekardashian had to go through what Tristan did while filming
#KUWTK,” a fan lamented.
“If I’m not wrong,” the fan predicted. “Next episode will be insane.”
“You’re so strong to put that personal issue as part of the show knowing millions of ppl will watch it,” the fan continued.
The tweet concluded: “I wouldn’t be able to do it.”
“Sadly, it will” be insane, Khloe confirmed.
“I signed up to show the for the good and the bad, right?” Khloe wrote. “The bad is very hard to relive but it’s life.”
That almost vague tweet from Khloe about how difficult it is to relive this part of her life is … kind of huge.
For the most part, she has avoided directly addressing Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal.
It has now been more than sixth months, though.
Not only is she reliving the horror of it on reality television …
(It’s about to blow wide open on screen in front of the entire world)
… But she has had a lot of time to think about whether or not she is really prepared to spend the rest of her life worrying if another cheating scandal will break.
On top of that, Khloe has been dropping hints that she may have ditched Tristan.
For starters, the two of them haven’t interacted on social media in ages.
That, on its own, could be a coincidence. Sometimes you don’t publicly “@” each other.
But then there’s the advice that Khloe has been peddling to her fans and followers.
People have noticed that Khloe seems less blissfully naive — and willing and ready to excise toxic people from her life.
“Free yourself from negative people,” Khloe recently counseled her fans adn followers.
“Spend time with nice people who are smart, driven, and likeminded,” she continued.
Most significantly, Khloe shared: “Relationships should help you, not hurt you.”
“Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be,” she advised.
When Khloe shared that message, Kourtney seconded the opinion, which looked to fans a lot like her pushing Khloe to ditch Tristan.
Khloe also recently shared that she is “not the woman i was 5 months ago.”
Five months ago, of course, Khloe seemed desperate to reconcile with Tristan despite what he had done.
At the end of the day, however, it is believed that Khloe clings to Tristan the way that she does for True’s sake.
Precious baby True is six months old, and it is perceived that Khloe doesn’t want her to grow up with parents who aren’t together.
It’s sweet that Khloe wants what’s best for True, but her fans have pointed out that a toxic relationship is not better for a child than co-parents.
But until very recently, it hasn’t looked like Khloe has been willing to listen to anyone else’s advice.
Ultimately, whether or not Khloe breaks up with Tristan is Khloe’s choice.
Not Kim’s, not Kourtney’s, not Kris’ … and certainly not her fans.
(It could always be Tristan who decides to end things, which would certainly be an unexpected twist)
Maybe Khloe and Tristan will outlast all expectations.
But if Khloe is finally speaking frankly about how painful it is to relive the scandal, which was entirely his doing, then maybe she’s rethinking that.
Or maybe, as some believe, she and Tristan are already over.
