Following the intense drama and scandal that has encircled Khloe Kardashian, Tristan Thompson, Jordyn Woods, and by effect, Kylie Jenner, Khloe and Tristan decided to put their emotions about one another aside to give their baby girl, True Thompson, and first birthday party that she deserves. No drama. No arguments. No fights. Just One Family (for True at least).
Throughout Khloe’s pregnancy with True, Tristan was caught up in several scandals of having affairs whilst being committed to Khloe. He was rumored to be cheating on the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, yet the two hid it all under the rug and kept a happy face for the world as they stuck by each other. At the very moment that Khloe was going into labor, Tristan had been caught up in one of his greater scandals, soon caught up with Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods as well. That’s a whole other story to get into with a lot of drama surrounding it. You can read about it here: Why There’s Still Hope for Jordyn Woods and Khloe Kardashian. (Although, things have changed and it seems there’s little to no hope for them now, but the coverage in the story details the scandal accurately nonetheless.)
That being said, despite having officially called quits and split ways, the two remain dedicated to co-parenting their now-1-year-old daughter True, with love, compassion, and all the care in the world so that she doesn’t grow affected negatively by the happenings and falling out of her parents’ relationship. That is not all words, though. Seeing True Thompson’s first birthday party, proved that the two are in fact dedicated to their daughter beyond their words and they can completely set their differences aside to give their bundle of joy the happiness and the family that she deserves.
According to a source close to Khloe Kardashian,
Khloe was very happy that Tristan showed up. The day was a success and drama free.”
Another source added that the party was definitely a difficult environment for Tristan to step foot into, with bad blood with several people in the room. Regardless, he did show up and that made Khloe “very happy for True.”
Khloe Kardashian did try her level best to make the party as welcoming for Tristan as possible. After all, he is the father of her baby girl and he deserves all the right to be there and share in her first birthday celebration. It’s reported that Khloe asked everyone to not make it uncomfortable for Tristan and to just “focus on True an this beautiful celebration.” The source explains,
Khloe has had to make many sacrifices for True and she will continue to. She knew Tristan had to be there for True’s first birthday and it would mean coming together with her family. She wanted to make sure there was no drama. She made that clear to her family.”
With that in mind, all of Khloe’s family members stood united with her and supported her efforts in making this a peaceful and drama free gathering for true. They all brushed their issues under the rug and put on a smile for True’s sake. Khloe also asked Tristan to bring some of his friends to the gathering so that he’d have some people to hang around and wouldn’t feel awkward or out of place. This was a great gesture on Khloe’s part. Between spending time with his friends, socializing with others, and showering his baby girl with lots and lots of love, it was evident that Tristan was in a good mood and he was putting in all the effort in the world to keep that up for his daughter.
Despite the civil and polite behavior, though, it’s reported that the exes still didn’t spend much time together. They stood apart for most of the gathering and hung out separately with True. What can one expect after their rocky history anyway? It must have taken a great amount of dedication to stand in the same room, and the two managed that for True which is far more than could have been expected given recent events.
A source close to the reality star explains,
Khloe and Tristan came together for photos and birthday cake. If there was a big moment, they were both in it for True. That is all that Khloe wanted. She wanted to make sure that when True grows up and looks back on this she can see that both of her parents were there for her.”
