Here’s How “KUWTK” Handled The Khloé And Tristan Cheating Scandal

I probably don’t need to remind you that back in April, Khloé Kardashian’s boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, was accused of cheating on her just days before she gave birth to their daughter True.

Khloé had packed up her life and moved to Cleveland at this point, where she planned to give birth to their child and remain in Tristan’s home for the duration of his basketball season.

Since then, Khloé and Tristan have remained relatively silent on the whole situation, so we’ve been waiting to see how things would play out on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Last week Khloé confirmed that the cheating scandal would be covered in full, and now the episode has arrived. Here’s what went down.

@AnnaP53 Sadly, it will. I signed up to show the for the good and the bad, right? The bad is very hard to relive but it’s life

The drama began with Kim discovering footage which allegedly showed Tristan kissing another woman. She just happened to be on set shooting her confessional interviews for KUWTK when she found out the news, and immediately informed producers of what was going down while messaging her sisters with links to the news.

We then saw each of the sister’s reactions to Kim’s message, starting with Kendall. She looked visibly shocked and went on to read out some of the details of the article.

We then saw Kylie, who was in glam, and Kourtney, who was at home, reading and reacting to the news.

Speaking in her testimonial, Kourtney said she felt “shocked,” “heartbroken,” and “disgusted” by the news.


She said: “I can’t even imagine being in Khloé’s shoes. This is really shocking. And obviously heartbreaking. The whole thing makes me disgusted.”

We then found out that Kylie had decided to tell Khloé the news by sending her a link to the article in question. And at this point, Khloé stopped responding to her family’s messages.

Kylie went on to explain that she’d wanted Khloé to hear the news from her family and not the internet.


She said: “No one had the courage to tell Khloé because she’s days away from giving birth and we didn’t want to stress her out. But we knew that it was the right thing to do. So I’m the one that told Khloé. I didn’t want to hurt her feelings, but I felt she should hear from one of us versus the internet.”

Meanwhile, Khloé called Kim and told her that she wanted to leave Cleveland immediately to be with her family in LA.


Khloé said: “I would love to come back to LA. I need to figure that out. I don’t know if I can travel. I’m gonna call Dr. A and see if I can get outta here.” This comment appears to confirm reports from the time which revealed that Khloé had been desperate to leave Cleveland but was ultimately advised against travelling so late in her pregnancy.

Kim attempted to reassure Khloé by telling her to remain “calm,” but Khloé said that was impossible.

Speaking in her testimonial, Kim said she was devastated for her sister after believing Khloé had “finally found her Prince Charming.”


She said: “Honestly, it’s like I’m in shock. We love Tristan. This is just nothing that we suspected. We thought she’d finally found her Prince Charming. Her happy ending. And then, fuck. It’s just like, why her? It really, really sucks.”

And, in a later scene, Kim told Kris Jenner that she’d advised Khloé to end her relationship with Tristan, or else risk having an “insecure life.”


She said: “I called Khloé. So many more stories have come out. I told her, “What are you gonna get out of [staying with him.] You’re gonna be worried and nervous and have an insecure life, because if he’s not faithful now he’ll never change.” When one thing comes out you kinda think maybe the video was old, maybe it was a misunderstanding. But then two more stories come out and you know it’s true.”

But things then took an even more dramatic turn when Khloé called Kris to tell her she was in labour.

However, during a call with Kourtney, Khloé made it clear that she still wanted Tristan in the delivery room with her, and said she needed her family to “act normal” so she could have a positive birthing experience.


Khloé said: “Everyone wants me to make a decision [about ending the relationship] right this second but I just wanna go and focus on giving birth, and try to enjoy this, and as crazy as it sounds, I want to enjoy this with him. I don’t want any negativity in the delivery room. I don’t want anyone to talk about it and make me feel uncomfortable or make him uncomfortable. Let’s just act normal and give me a minute.”

We then saw Kim, Kourtney and Khloé’s BFF Malika waiting to board a private jet to Cleveland. Kim said she had no intention of speaking to Tristan and instead showed Kourtney and Malika the gestures she’d make at him instead. The first involved her motioning that she was watching him, and the second was a throat-slitting gesture.

And the episode ended with Kourtney giving a testimonial in which she said she’d struggle to even look at Tristan when she arrived in Cleveland.


She said: “I know how important it is for Khloé to have Tristan there, and I actually really respect that but it’s definitely going to be awkward. It’s going to be hard to even look at him or be in the same room as him. It’s like you’re fucking with all of us when you disrespect one of us.”

And the drama continues next week…
