Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's back-on romance may be back on no longer. On the same day the season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians aired, featuring footage of Khloé being torn about whether she and Tristan have a future, the reality star unfollowed her NBA player ex-boyfriend and father of her daughter on Instagram. Consider it a public signal flare that all is not well between them. (Tristan still follows Khloé as of this morning.)
Khloé also posted some dramatic quotes to her Instagram, something she has done in the past to subtly address drama happening between her and Tristan and let fans make their own conclusions about what's up. Yesterday's quotes included one that said, "I cannot express this enough, you have NO IDEA what other people carry with them EVERYDAY. You have NO IDEA what someone's life is like. Don't create more pain and stress to others. BE KIND. BE GENUINE. Stop being so mean to people to fulfill whatever it is you don't like about you." The others were mostly about self-empowerment after overcoming hardship.
Tristan, of course, has cheated on Khloé multiple times, including during her pregnancy, and those public scandals have caused her to breakup with him in the past. But this year, they quarantined together. On last night's KUWTK episode, Tristan expressed a desire to date Khloé again. Khloé was unsure it was the best move for them.
Khloé told Tristan, per People, "For almost a year now, you've been a different person. It frustrates me, because I'm like, why now? Why are you the man I dreamed of currently? Why couldn't you be that when we were together?"
She added that "one of my fears is you're going to keep acting like this until you get what you want, and when you do, you're going to turn into the old Tristan again."
Tristan told her, "I've grown to a point where I know what I want in my life and I know I want you in my life."
"Do I love you? A million percent. Am I currently in love with you? No," Khloé said. "But would it be great if I could have this fairy tale ending? Yes, but just because you have a family with someone doesn't mean you have to stay with someone if it's not the best fit. I don't know what the future holds."
Of course, the episode was filmed months ago, and in July, People reported the two had reconciled. Khloé also noted on Twitter last night that there's a lot people don't see because the show is edited, and the family chooses what conversations air, so don't judge them solely off of it.
But that wasn't the only place the Kardashians had drama these past couple days. Ex-Kardashian friend Larsa Pippen gave a tell-all interview at the beginning of the week, where she claimed she dated Tristan before Khloé.
"I was seeing him, I had him come to L.A. I brought him to a party Kim had," Larsa said. "I introduced him to all of them. Then a week later, or 10 days later, he started seeing Khloé. Which is fine, I don't even care. It's whatever. I'm the type of person that doesn't chase what's not for me. I will never chase a man; I will never put a leash on a man. I don't do that. I feel like, let you be great. If you want to be with other people, go ahead. I'm great by myself." (It's worth noting that Thompson left his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Jordan Craig, when he started dating Khloé.)
Sources close to the family were dismissive of Larsa's claims to both E! and Us Weekly, but the Kardashian family itself has not commented on the interview. Sources made a point to address Larsa's Tristan comments though.
A source told Us, “No one remembers Khloé meeting Tristan before that or being introduced to him through Larsa. Larsa was never dating Tristan. They may have gone out in a group or met up, but they did not date. The family thinks she is embarrassing and seeking attention."
A source echoed the same point to E!, saying, "Khloé doesn't believe Larsa was dating Tristan before her. Larsa knew Tristan, but they were never dating."
