Khloé Kardashian & Tristan Thompson Were Attending Couples Therapy Prior To Baby Bombshell
The Kardashians premiere episode dives right into Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's relationship.
In the soon to be dropped episode — out Thursday, April 14 on Hulu — the Good American cofounder, 37, and the NBA star, 31, struggled to figure out where they stood romantically prior to the shocking news that Thompson had fathered a child with fitness trainer Maralee Nichols while in a relationship with Kardashian.
"Right now Tristan and I are just friends and I love our relationship that him and I have. My biggest focus is being a mom to my beautiful angel True," the Strong Looks Better Naked author reveals in episode one via TooFab about the now estranged duo's 4-year-old daughter.

"Tristan and I are not exactly together. He's one of my best friends. I see Tristan a couple times a week. He's a really hands-on dad and me and Tristan don't have tension. We get along really, really well," she goes on to say adding that "if Tristan had his way, then we would completely be together." However, Kardashian emphasized, "I just need a little breathing room and time to think."
The former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star divulged that she and the Chicago Bulls player had been going to "couples therapy together," clarifying that "it's really his therapy that I'm asked to join."
Kardashian explained Thompson was "very determined on us getting back together," despite sleeping with and impregnating another woman reportedly in March 2021 — when the two were still very much together. At the time of filming, the news had not yet broke about the athlete's latest infidelity.

"It's always such a weird gray area because we are such great friends. I think that's so confusing to outside people," the-mother-of-one said about her dynamic with her baby daddy.
"Every day he tries to show me and prove to me that he's a different person and that I should have faith and trust him," she continued to confess. "Him and I have been through so much together, that I have a lot of reservations. My guards are up."
After Thompson noted how he and Kardashian have a great relationship because she never burned his clothes or slashed his tires, the reality star stated: "No, but I have thrown water on all your clothes. When I was 9 months pregnant. When you cheated on me. If I wasn't pregnant, I would have f---ed you up so ... I just didn't want to break my nails before delivery."
