Since Instagram model Sydney Chase claimed last month that she had an affair with the NBA star in January (she later clarified that she and Thompson began seeing each other last November), Kardashian, 36, "has been devastated," dishes the insider.
But Thompson, 30, who denies the claims and sent Chase, 23, a cease-and-desist letter to prevent her from divulging details of their alleged hookup, "is begging her not to feed into this nonsense."
"They were talking about getting married and trying for another baby," spills the insider. "Now, that's off the cards. Khloé loves Tristan, but she's not taking any chances until he can prove to her that he's innocent."
The drama began after Chase appeared on Adam22's "No Jumper" podcast with her BFFS — who call themselves The Blackout Girls. In the interview, which aired on April 22, Chase claimed she had an affair with the father-of-two. Later, she alleged that Thompson had reached out to her twice, even sharing dirty messages with her and telling her that Khloé is not actually his type.
Though the Revenge Body star has remained relatively tight-lipped amid Thompson's most recent scandal, Kardashian did take to Instagram earlier this week to share an inspirational — yet cryptic — message about positivity with her 143 million followers.
"Speak positive words into your life every single morning," the reality star wrote, adding that it's crucial to think about healing, peace, happiness and success. "Always start the day with positive energy — you deserve it."
It seems that only time will tell if Khloé and Tristan's love will survive lockdown.
