According to a TMZ exclusive, published on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star reportedly called it quits with the Cleveland Cavaliers player after he was allegedly caught cheating again — this time with younger sister Kylie Jenner‘s BFF, model Jordyn Woods.
Sources cited by the gossip rag have claimed that Thompson, 27, and Woods, 21, were reportedly spotted “snuggled up” together and “making out” at a party held at a Los Angeles home on Sunday evening, Feb. 17. For her part, Kardashian, 34, has reportedly “had enough” of her now ex-beau’s reported behavior and split up with him for good after learning of the alleged hookup.
At the time of this writing, Jenner, 21, and Woods have yet to publicly comment on the reports. However, Thompson called the rumors “fake news” in a since-deleted tweet (via E! News). Meanwhile, Kardashian and her crew appeared to confirm the infidelity speculation in the comments section of a Hollywood Unlocked Instagram post regarding the breakup. According to E! News, best friend Malika Haqq simply wrote, “STRONG FACTS,” in response to the news, while the Good American businesswoman shared multiple shouting emojis.
As Nicki Swift previously reported, Thompson was hit with several cheating allegations just two days before he and Kardashian welcomed their first child together, daughter True, in April 2018. Despite the high-profile scandal, the couple quietly stayed together and worked on their reportedly “fractured relationship” as they continued to split their time between Los Angeles and Cleveland, Ohio.
While much has been made about their relationship status in the press since last spring, a source cited by Us Weekly in early December 2018 claimed that Kardashian and Thompson were “actively trying” for baby no. 2. “Khloé loves being a mom. She wants True to have a sibling,” the insider told the magazine, adding, “In her mind, she and Tristan are fine.”
However, rumors of an impending breakup began to surface yet again earlier this month, after the proud parents noticeably hadn’t been seen together in public in weeks. “[Kardashian has been] living and behaving as a single mother,” an insider told Us Weekly on Friday, Feb. 15, while another noted that the reality TV star hadn’t “traveled to Cleveland in awhile.”
The news of the former couple’s split comes just days after conflicting reports on whether Thompson flew out from C-Town to spend Valentine’s Day with Kardashian and 10-month-old True at their shared home in Los Angeles. However, he did gift the E! star with a floral arrangement to mark the occasion (via Us Weekly), while the Revenge Body star made headlines for posting some pretty cryptic posts on her Instagram Stories. “Sometimes God breaks your heart to save your soul,” one quote read, according to the magazine. Kardashian shared in another, “Today shouldn’t be the day you finally get the love you deserve.”
Through this months-long headline-making ordeal, Kardashian has remained focused on motherhood while continuing to make daughter True her number one priority. “I chose to put my feelings aside for the birth and to try and have as much positive energy that I could,” she tweeted in November 2018, after KUWTK began covering Thompson’s cheating scandal. “My only thought was about the birth of my daughter. I wasn’t going to let ANYONE disrupt anything less than what she deserved. Joyous love. I chose to be mature & strong for True.”
Kardashian added, “I waited for this day for so many years! I know now, looking back that I was in shock because I couldn’t believe that this would ever happen to me but I’m still very proud of myself for how I handled everything. True gave me the peace and strength I needed.”
Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t sound like this is going to change as she and Thompson navigate how to co-parent little True amid their highly-publicized split. According to a source cited by Us Weekly on Wednesday, Feb. 20, “Tristan isn’t too worried about not seeing True, or Khloé establishing new rules when it comes to coparenting. He honestly doesn’t really care and was over it. He was never trying to win Khloé back.” The insider went on to claim, “Tristan’s friends are all just thinking, ‘What an idiot.'” Yikes.
