Khloe Kardashian was not "betrayed" by Tristan Thompson, despite a new tabloid cover story. The couple, who is set to welcome a baby in April, is still going strong. Gossip Cop can bust this false report.
The new cover of In Touch blares, "Oh No! Pregnant Khloe Betrayed Again! Tristan Back With His First Baby Mama." In the accompanying article, the gossip magazine alleges Thompson has been "flirting up a storm with other women, remains in close contact with his ex-girlfriend and refuses to give up his bachelor pad and move in with or marry" Kardashian. Of course, Thompson should still be in touch with Jordan Craig, since they have a child together, and Kardashian has said in interviews that she's in no rush to get married.
But the outlet wants to give the appearance of scandal, and it draws comparisons between Thompson and Kardashian's ex-husband, Lamar Odom. "She can't seem to pick the right man," a so-called "insider" is quoted as saying. This supposed source claims Kardashian's family "warned her" that Thompson would be unfaithful, but she disregarded their advice. Now, contends the publication, the reality star is "frantically worried" the basketball player will "stray," so she's "resorted to closely monitoring her man's every move."
The tabloid alleges Kardashian is particularly paranoid when it comes to Craig, with the purported tipster asserting, "Khloe is unhappy about the fact that Tristan is still friendly with her." And an alleged "friend" of the "KUWTK" star further contends she spends her nights crying, "doesn't leave the house," and is "vowing to raise" their baby "alone." Adding to Kardashian's "insecurities," according to the magazine, is the time Thompson spends on the road. "Rumors that he still has a wandering eye and basketball groupies on the side... infuriate her," claims the purported pal.
And the aforementioned "insider" maintains, "Tristan betrayed Khloe already. He said he would marry her and then got cold feet." As Gossip Cop already noted above, however, the expecting star has made it clear in multiple interviews that she's not considering marriage at this point in time and is focusing on her pregnancy. Furthermore, just a day before this cover story was published, Kardashian gushed on her website about knowing Thompson was "the one." She remains completely overjoyed by the relationship and obviously hasn't been "betrayed."
In addition, while the "friend" alleges she "doesn't leave the house," a claim that is also on the issue's cover, Kardashian was photographed out with Kris Jenner and Scott Disick on Monday. She was also snapped out and about by paparazzi last week, too. What's more is there is another distorted contention on the front of the magazine. The publication salaciously teases, "[Thompson's] been partying at strip clubs, just like Lamar!" But inside the actual article, it's noted that Kardashian was actually with the Cavaliers player when he went to the joint last August.
In Touch wanted to mislead readers into thinking Thompson was involved in sketchy behavior behind Kardashian's back when that wasn't actually the case, just like she's not actually refusing to leave home either. And let's not forget this is the same tabloid that was wrong about Kardashian and Thompson being engaged back in 2016. Truth-telling doesn't seem to be among the magazine's priorities. Indeed, Gossip Cop is told by a Kardashian confidante, who wasn't at liberty to speak on the record, "They just want to sell copies" with "lies." And HollywoodLife, apparently, just wants clicks, as it is already regurgitating this misinformation.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
