Tristan Thompson was sued for paternity by Maralee Nichols, a Houston-based personal trainer, in December of 2021.
Tristan claimed that the child was not his, but it proved out that he had fact knocked Maralee up, much to the amazement of no one.
Thankfully, Khloe had already cut connections with her philandering baby daddy by the time the lawsuit became public.
However, the court case was humiliating for KoKo when it was revealed that Tristan had impregnated Maralee while they were still dating.
Most people expected this because Tristan had already been caught cheating on Khloe twice before, but the news apparently surprised Khloe, who trusted Thompson when he said his cheating days were behind him.
That context only adds to the vexation of a scene from the latest episode of The Kardashians.
Khloe and Tristan are working out in Kim’s gym — or, if you prefer, Kimberly’s gymberly — when Khloe makes a joke about her sisters’ tragic romances.
“Scott Disick isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.” Kanye West has made it clear that he will never leave. With a chuckle, Khloe said to Tristan, “It looks like you’re never leaving.”
“We’re all going to be here for the rest of our lives.”
Tristan responded smugly, “More like you’re never leaving me.”
Khloe, who appeared surprised by the revelation, laughed and replied, “Oh, okay.”
“I think we’re family for life, either way,” Khloe concluded. “However, I think it’s such a lovely thing.”
After knowing that Tristan had another woman throughout their relationship, Khloe is likely to reconsider her mind about his continued engagement in her life.
And it looks like we’ll soon find out how she reacted to the news, as a Hulu camera team was present when Khloe learned that Tristan had cheated on her once more.
In a recent interview with Us Weekly, The Kardashians executive producer Danielle King revealed, “Well, for that particular time, my team was there.”
“We were there to film something else early in the morning, and we honestly just happened to be there the morning that the news broke,” she explained, noting that “nearly always a camera is going.”
Khloe, for one, has stated that she is done with Tristan and will not be giving him any more opportunities.
“I believe he’s a fantastic guy and a great father, but he’s just not the one for me,” she told Robin Roberts of Good Morning America recently.
“In the beginning, I felt extremely safe with Tristan. For a while, I felt fantastic.”
Khloe then remembered Tristan’s greatest betrayal, when he cheated on her while she was pregnant.
“I recall him cheating on me before I gave birth and I was still able to have him in the delivery room,” she says “Roberts was informed.
“Yes, it may have appeared unusual to the rest of the world, but when my daughter watches my home recordings of it, she will see it as pure as I could make it.”
So, while dating Khloe, Tristan must have done worse than impregnate another woman.
However, he should not be commended for setting such a low standard.
