Almost a year after an affair ended their relationship, Tristan Thompson has been working overtime to win Khloe Kardashian back. He's been sending Khloe flirty text messages in an attempt to atone for his alleged affair with 22-year-old Jordyn Woods.
Even during the holidays, Tristan was sure to tell Khloe how amazing he thought she looked at the annual family Christmas party. Although Tristan was at the party, he was there strictly as part of his duties as a parent.
Khloe and Tristan have one child together, a one-year-old daughter named True. "Tristan is all in on getting Khloe back in his life," a source told Hollywood Life. "He wants to rekindle the love they had and he is trying to figure out how to make that all happen."
Tristan may be working overtime to win back Khloe's affections, but she's not exactly thrilled about that. At this stage, it seems like she just wants him to be there for their child.
"Tristan saying he wants to go all-in on winning Khloe back, of course, makes her feel good, but she’s let him and everyone around her know that she’s not interested in doing anything other than co-parenting with him," another source told Hollywood Life.
"Things have gotten so much better between them, but she would never be able to trust him again after he cheated on her," the source continued. "Khloe has worked really hard to move on and learn to trust again."
After the heartbreak from Tristan, Khloe is starting to consider seeing someone new again. "She’s started to be open to the idea of dating, but she’s not really there yet," the source said. "She’s so focused on raising True and being as hands-on and the best mom she can be. She’s with the baby all of the time and brings her everywhere when she travels, too."
Although Tristan may mean well, it seems his attempts may be useless, at least for the time being.
"She’s happy Tristan sees more of True and they’re able to finally communicate better, but there’s nothing he can do to win her back romantically," the source said.
Whatever happens between Tristan and Khloe, it's clear the two will always share a complicated history with one another. Thankfully, it seems that that history has not yet driven the two of them apart. They can still parent together, which may ultimately be the most important role that they both can play.
