Although Khloé Kardashian revealed that she isn’t focused on dating right now, her best friend, Malika Haqq, believes differently! The pregnant reality star, 36, shared that she believes the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson aren’t done romantically.
During the December 1 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloé, 35, recalled a conversation with Malika and her baby daddy O.T. Genasis. “Malika and O.T. were like, ‘I don’t think it’s over with you and Tristan,” Khloé said before noting that she is building a friendship with Tristan, 28. “There’s really nothing romantic between Tristan and I.” She added, “Tristan is really trying to show he’s sorry on a daily basis. … We’re slowly moving into the right direction of being friends as well as excellent coparents.”
This isn’t the first time that Malika has cheered for the former couple. Later in the episode, during a club appearance in Connecticut, Malika admitted that she helped the Cleveland Cavaliers star deliver a birthday gift for the Good American CEO. “Tristan asked for help to surprise you with something. … He wanted to give you something, do something nice for you,” she said.
In terms of the surprise, Tristan gifted the mother of one with an enormous diamond ring that he referred to as a “promise” ring. In addition, Tristan wrote a heartfelt birthday card. “It was the nicest, longest card, and it was in his bad handwriting,” Khloé pointed out.
“Wow wow wow @khloekardashian,” Tristan wrote to Instagram in November 2019. “Congrats Momma Koko on winning best reality star 2019, that’s two years in a row. Two time champ. I love the sound of that. So proud of all you have accomplished this year. Revenge Body is something that always stands out to me, you challenge people to fight for a better YOU. It’s more about what in life really gives us true happiness and is holding us back from achieving that.”
Like Khloé, Malika is learning the importance of coparenting. Malika and O.T., 32, dated on and off for over two years before their split in June 2019. Three months later, Malika revealed that she and her ex-boyfriend are expecting a bundle of joy.
