Kardashians: Khloe Kardashian reconciled with Tristan before his paternity was made public
On the May 5 episode of The Kardashians, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson were officially back together around the time Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker got engaged.
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson were on very good terms before his fatherhood drama ruined their future together. The May 5 episode of The Kardashians revolved around the engagement of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker in October 2021, with Khloe and Tristan back together. When the producer asked how Chloe and Tristan were doing, Chloe replied:
“Were good. We are actually at a great level of relationship right now. We just made up and got back together. He went to therapy a lot. It’s just that he put a lot of effort into it.”
Ironically, the drama of Tristan’s fatherhood was foreshadowed at the pre-engagement meeting between Courtney and Travis. Tristan and Kardashian pal Simon Hack talked about how Tristan surprised Khloe and True by coming to town. What other big surprises? Simon asked. Tristan hesitated a bit, and Simon said, “Not yet?” Then Tristan replied: “Not yet.”
Less than two months later, the Daily Mail exposed Tristan’s ongoing drama with Marali Nichols, a woman who declared he was the father of her kid. Marali gave birth to a son in December 2021, meaning that Marali and Tristan had an affair while he was still with Chloe. After the Jordyn Woods scandal, Chloe and Tristan reunited in August 2020 before breaking up in June 2021.
Marali sued Tristan for alimony, after which they waited for the results of a paternity test, as Tristan did not believe that he was really the father of the kid. In January 2022, Tristan assured that the child was his.
