Tristan Thompson "refuses" to marry Khloe Kardashian, according to a tabloid report. The story claims she's "desperate to walk down the aisle, but it seems her beau has other plans." Gossip Cop can bust it.
Though this is "supposed to be the happiest time of her life," OK! Australia claims a pregnant Kardashian is "secretly struggling behind closed doors." The gossip magazine alleges the expectant star is "desperate" for Thompson to "put a ring on it." A so-called "insider" is quoted as saying, "She is actually quite conservative and doesn't believe a woman should have a child outside of marriage."
The outlet contends Kardashian has "made her feelings known to Tristan, who then promised her they'll walk down the aisle after the baby is born." The problem, claims the supposed source, is that "Tristan is full of it and all his friends are laughing behind Khloe's back." The publication's alleged tipster goes on to assert, "If she gets pushy enough he will buy her a ring to shut her up, but he has zero, and I mean zero, interest in marriage."
As evidence the NBA star "doesn't want to be tied down," the tabloid points to Thompson leaving his ex, Jordan Craig, while she was pregnant with their son in 2016. Now, maintains the magazine, "while he'll happily play the part of the doting baby daddy, Tristan doesn't plan to make things official with Koko." The aforementioned "insider" alleges, "[He] tells her that they will have their happily ever after to keep their relationship smooth, but I mean, they don't even live together."
"They have separate homes in L.A. and that's how he plans to keep it," continues the outlet's ill-informed source, who adds, "Poor Khloe, she has no clue, and is dreaming of a big wedding in Italy." But the publication predicts she "could be facing another sad split." Actually, what's sad is how inaccurate this article is.
First off, Kardashian and Thompson do live together in Cleveland, which this story neglects to mention. Second, while no one can say if the pair will go the distance, it's not fair to conclude that simply because the athlete didn't marry Craig, it means he won't marry Kardashian, either. And third, Kardashian herself has said she's not marrying Thompson any time soon.
She told Ellen DeGeneres earlier this month, "I'm not in any rush for that. As you know, I've rushed quite a few things before." The "KUWTK" star, of course, was referring to her marriage to Lamar Odom, whom she wed after just weeks of dating. Kardashian further said, "Right now, I'm so loving the place I am in my life and I'm just very happy with how things are going."
She added that she and Thompson are both "just happy where we are, and what's meant to be will be." Notably, that's the exact oppose of what OK! is claiming. Clearly its "insider" isn't actually on the inside at all.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
