Khloé Kardashian was seen out in Calabasas with her philandering ex Tristan Thompson on Saturday after his latest cheating scandal played out on her family’s Hulu show, The Kardashians.
The 37-year-old Good American founder shared an awkward side hug with the 31-year-old NBA star as they loaded their four-year-old daughter True into the backseat of an SUV. The trio grabbed a pre-Father’s Day lunch at Sagebrush Cantina and Saloon with Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner, as well as Khloe’s nieces Dream, Chicago and nephew Psalm.
She took to the comments of a Instagram account that follows Kardashian–Jenner drama to set the record straight. She denied that she was dating anyone at the moment after an anonymous tipster claimed to the gossip account Deuxmoi that she was dating another NBA player after her ex Tristan Thompson fathered a child with another woman while they were dating.
Khloe and the gang had attended True, Dream and Chicago’s dance recital earlier in the day which Khloe proudly shared snap of with her Instagram following. Before stepping out with her family, Khloe moved to swiftly shut down a rumor about her current love life on social media.
Khloé’s rumored hookup was first mentioned after Deuxmoi posted a message wondering when she would move on with a new man. Then Khloé jumped into the comments to deny that she was seeing anyone new.
‘Definitely NOT True !!! I love you!’ she replied. ‘Thank you for the nice wishes but I am not seeing a soul. I am happy focusing on my daughter and myself for awhile.’ Khloé and Tristan’s relationship ended for good in December of 2021 after he was accused of fathering a child with another woman, Maralee Nichols.
He later admitted to having had sex with Nichols, before admitting in January that a paternity test had showed that he was the father of her child. He and Khloé share their daughter True Thompson, four. Khloé’s statement that she’s staying single for the time being comes after she admitted that watching the scandal replayed on The Kardashians is a ‘form of therapy’ for her.
She made the admission while joined by her mother Kris Jenner and sister Kendall Jenner at a For Your Emmy Consideration event for her family’s new Hulu reality series on Wednesday. ‘It’s not easy, but it’s also, I think, a form of therapy for me at the same time, and I like to see how the rest of my family responds to things,’ she said, according to Just Jared.
‘Those little things mean a lot to me, and I like to see that stuff, just how the whole family not about this situation, but any situation how we all rally around one another in times that are hard for us.’
Khloé’s fury over the revelation that Tristan had fathered a child was recently featured on The Kardashians, and she was seen getting a tense early morning phone call about the news from her sister Kim. She credited the crew and The Kardashians’ showrunner for helping to make her comfortable enough to share such intimate moments with the world.
‘We’re so lucky and honored through that, and Danielle [King] is with us in the field every day,’ she said. ‘If we didn’t feel safe or comfortable to tell our stories, or to feel that we can be vulnerable… Yes, we know it’s going to go on the big screen one day, but you can be your raw, open self when you have a great team around you.’
She also noted that the family members all have boundaries as to what they won’t allow to be filmed or aired, but some are more private than others.
