Tristan Thompson is taking steps to mend fences with the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, marking a reconciliation four years after his widely publicized cheating scandal involving Jordyn Woods. This scandal led to his separation from Khloe Kardashian. In a noteworthy move, the NBA star is specifically seeking an apology from Kylie Jenner, who was best friends with Woods at the time, asserting that she bore the brunt of the fallout.
For those not following the Kardashian drama closely, Tristan and Khloe had a tumultuous on-and-off relationship since 2016, resulting in the birth of their two children, True and Tatum. Despite Khloe’s insistence on their permanent breakup, Tristan has openly expressed lingering feelings for her, as reported by Us Weekly.
In a sneak peek of the upcoming episode of ‘The Kardashians,’ Tristan is shown embarking on an apology tour in an effort to establish amicable relations with Khloe’s family. This comes after Khloe emphasized the interconnectedness within their family, stating, “In this family, if you do something to one of us, it affects everyone.”
Acknowledging his past mistakes, Tristan approaches Kylie, who appears visibly apprehensive. The two engage in a conversation at the KHY founder’s residence, with Tristan acknowledging the varied impacts of his actions and suggesting that Kylie was the most affected, alluding to the cheating scandal with her former best friend, Jordyn Woods. It’s worth noting that Kylie and Jordyn had severed ties in 2019 following reports of Woods kissing Tristan at a party. However, recent sightings indicate a rekindling of their friendship.
While Tristan maintains a positive co-parenting relationship with Khloe, Kourtney Kardashian expresses her reservations about her sister’s ex. In a confessional, Kourtney admits, “Tristan and I really have not connected, and I just can’t fake it.” During their meeting, Kourtney questions Tristan about his feelings after cheating, to which he responds, “Disgusted.” This prompts Kourtney to inquire further, asking, “Why does he do it then?”
Tristan Thompson’s history of infidelity, including incidents with model Lani Blair before the birth of their daughter True and the 2019 scandal with Jordyn Woods, has been a source of ongoing tumult. In January 2022, Tristan confirmed fathering a child while engaged to Khloe, leading to the final unraveling of their tumultuous relationship.
