On the latest episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Khloé expressed mixed feelings about her ex, Tristan Thompson, surprising her with lavish gifts – including a promise ring, for her 35th birthday.
Khloe started dating the NBA player in 2016, however, had a falling out after two years, when Tristan was accused of cheating on the pregnant Keeping up with the Kardashian’s star. Even though, the couple decided to move past the incident, a year later Tristan was involved in another cheating scandal – this time with Kylie Jenner’s ex best friend, Jordyn Woods.
The couple shares a 2 year-old daughter, True Thomspon, and though their relationship ended on bad terms, the parents have matured and remained civil for the sake of their child. Tristan was invited to majority of the events revolving around True and was even present during her birth.
In a recent episode of KUWTK, Khloe and Tristan seemed to reconnect as the basketball player showered his ex-girlfriend with expensive gifts in hopes to get back together. “Lately Tristan has been telling me he’s sorry and that he loves and appreciates me,” she said. “But right now, the most I can handle is co-parenting. I really believe that Tristan wants more than that but that’s not what I’m about.”
He presented the Kardashian sister with a giant diamond ring, however, got a different reaction than what he had expected. According to Khloe, “[Tristan] gives me a card and he goes ‘and I hope you accept this ring. And I go ‘Nope! No!’. I was like, I really appreciate it, but I don’t think I can accept it. This is a beautiful new you that I’m seeing, I just don’t want there to be any blurred lines or for you to think anything.”
This wasn’t the only present Tristan gave Khloe. Previously, he gave her a diamond necklace, which left her with ‘conflicted’ feelings. “I am conflicted as to if I should keep it or not. I just really want to make sure there are no expectations,” she said. “If I keep something is that misleading? It’s the sweetest, kindest gesture, but it doesn’t mean a necklace is going to fix everything.”
Following the episode, the single mother tweeted that she wishes Thompson had never cheated, however, that doesn’t mean she has any romantic feelings for him. She has managed to keep things cordial to build a healthy co-parenting relationship for her daughter.
She later posted a picture on Instagram, expressing her love for her 2-year-old. She wrote, “♡ Everyday I give thanks that I was chosen to be your mommy! I’ll never ever take this role for granted! Thank you Tutu! I will easily love you until the end of time! ♡ #Thanksgiving #Thankful”
