Khloe Kardashian is now a single mother, front-page news, and her name is linked to a messy love triangle. The February 2019 news that Jordyn Woods was "involved" with Tristan Thompson was confirmed on Jordyn's Red Table Talk interview, but things have only gotten worse.
Jordyn insisted she is "no homewrecker." The Californian home setting that saw Khloe, Tristan, and their daughter True play happy families for Thanksgiving 2018 appears to have collapsed. The Daily Mail has spotted Tristan entertaining another woman since, although with his 2018 drama happening just days before True was due, it isn't the first time around for this basketball player.
Khloe has been voicing her thoughts via social media. At first, she said Jordyn was "lying." With everyone assuming that the Kardashians would rally up against Jordyn, things have taken an interesting turn. With each passing day, it seems that Jordyn is being forgiven, and it's Tristan who's out in the cold.
Khloe has not deleted pics of Tristan from her IG. They're basically sitting there as the relationship graveyard. While The Independent reports that Jordyn "moved out" of Kylie Jenner's guest house last month, nobody is really sure where the former best friends stand.
It's the third time for Khloe. Risky basketball players seem to be this girl's go-to route, but it never ends well. Tristan joins Lamar Odom and James Harden as the "basketball exes" who came with a #Trouble.
Everyone just wants to see the pics. Specifically, the before and after ones. Here are 11 pics of Khloe since Jordyn Woods (plus nine when she was still with Tristan).
20 (With Tristan): This Should've Been A Clue
Sometimes, a face says it all. Khloe was in the early stages of her pregnancy here. While the baby bump wasn't yet visible, this guy's playful nature was. The first wave of drama came just as True was due, but Elle quotes Khloe's Twitter feed since. It's sad to read.
"Honestly, Tristan [stepping out] & [debasing] me, wasn’t such a [surprise] as the first time...What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me."
While the relationship was still going strong here, everyone is questioning how far Tristan's issues stretch back. The April 2018 incident is known. Beyond that, literally, nobody has a clue.
19 (Since Jordyn): Reminding Tristan What He Gave Up
Kardashians have backbones. Sitting at home and moping after a heartbreak isn't their style. Khloe basically broke the internet in the wake of the Tristan drama– not by going on a TV show and pouring out her soul. By being the life and soul of the party.
On March 4th 2019, Khloe updated her IG with this sizzling pic. Looking back (but moving forward), we got one crystal-studded bodysuit, the family's signature curves, and the attitude that we just love Khloe having.
As Elle reports, Khloe has taken to social media to "count her blessings." Over three million of us liked this pic of Khloe.
18 (Since Jordyn): A Single Mom Seeking Full Custody
Kim Kardashian has called Khloe a "single mom," as Page Six reports. The Inquisitr reports that Khloe is now seeking full custody of True. It's a sad situation. As Khloe found her name fronting every media outlet around, she did something pretty brave. It's called stepping out in the street.
With a touch of glam, but choosing to steer clear of the heels and plunging necklines, Khloe stepped out into the open with her baby.
"Khloe feels so betrayed," a source informed Us Weekly. Betrayed she may feel, but this mother is putting her child's wellbeing first. Khloe looked beyond beautiful in this pic, and we're kind of glad the paparazzi caught it.
17 (With Tristan): Took Him Back Once
April 2018 is when Tristan first started making unsavory headlines. KUWTK viewers saw the entire family receive the news that The Daily Mail had filmed Tristan with another woman, and the reaction was intense. Khloe was seen in tears as she rocked her nine-month bump.
“Those around Khloe are trying to be as supportive to her as they can. It’s hard because if everyone distances themselves from Tristan, they’ll risk losing Khloe."
In May 2018, Seventeen reported Khloe receiving support as the first wave of drama broke. Khloe took Tristan back in the hope of building a family together, although it seemed that she was treading gingerly.
16 (Since Jordyn): But There's A Limit
Once bitten twice shy? A girl has her limits. While opinions were divided on whether or not Khloe should have allowed Tristan back into her life following the April 2018 issues, everyone seems to be in agreement that a third chance isn't really an option.
"Tristan is equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child. Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY."
Elle quotes one of Khloe's tweets as Jordyn Woods basically became the biggest celeb name around. Khloe updated her IG with this pic after Tristan, but you can see from her face that times aren't easy.
15 (Since Jordyn): 'Why Are You Lying To Me @jordynwoods?'
Khloe's initial response to Jordyn wasn't soft. By telling Jordyn she was "lying" on Twitter following Jordyn's Red Table Talk interview, Khloe showed us that she was hurting. Jordyn maintains that her involvement with Tristan was limited following a house party.
"If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!"
As Seventeen reports, Khloe's March 1st, 2019 tweet lashed out. Everything has changed since, though. Khloe was papped in the street as the story unfolded, and we've got to say, this girl never misses the mark.
14 (With Tristan): Playing Happy Families For Thanksgiving
This pic basically feels like that nostalgia that comes with an #Awkward. Everybody had their doubts after Tristan made headlines in April 2018. By the time Thanksgiving rolled around, fans were wondering if Khloe's decision to keep Tristan in her life was the right one.
Khloe and Tristan posed here with True in what seemed to be Khloe's attempt to make the family work. The picture was posted on Khloe's IG.
Tristan doesn't post many pictures of his daughter on social media, although the lack of them isn't indicative of being a "bad father." Still, this pic makes us sad.
13 (Since Jordyn): 'Always Wear Your Seatbelt'
It's always cryptic with Khloe. As March 2019 wore on, Khloe started posting increasingly mysterious posts on IG. Sometimes, they were quotes. Others seemed like hidden messages. "Always wear your seatbelt" was the caption to this post.
Yes, when you're in a vehicle, you want to be wearing a seat belt. It's kind of the law. Still, as Khloe updated her 80+ million followers with this, people got wondering.
Was Tristan a bad accident? Is he symbolic of a car wreck? Khloe was alone in this pic (well, we definitely aren't going to see Tristan in the pics), but what was the actual message?
12 (With Tristan): Too Big For His Boots?
There were happier times. Khloe seemed to fall for Tristan hard before becoming his solid girlfriend and baby momma. She told Jimmy Kimmel how the pregnancy discovery went:
"Tristan kept saying: You're pregnant, and I was like: Be quiet. I'm not pregnant. I was nauseous, not feeling well and then he had to leave the country and I took a pregnancy test."
As Seventeen reports, this relationship had its ordinary vibes. A couple finding out they're pregnant. It's the most natural thing in the world. Much like the faux fur here, though, something was amiss between these two. We just don't know if anything was going on back here.
11 (Since Jordyn): 'Are You Willing To Give Up What You Love, For Who You Love?'
And so continues the string of cryptic social media captions from Khloe. We've seen plenty of celebs throw possible shade at guys. Cardi B's "Be Careful" is largely considered to be about Offset (although they've reconciled). Ariana Grande basically speaks for herself.
"Are You Willing To Give Up What You Love, For Who You Love?" Khloe asked. Quite whom she was asking wasn't clear, but we've got a feeling it was a question to herself.
Khloe has had to do a lot of thinking. Sadly, Us Weekly reports: "Tristan isn’t too worried about not seeing True." We know this baby will always have her momma.
10 (Since Jordyn): 'This Has Been A [Bad] Week'
By early March 2019, Khloe had gone from possible headline to total dominator. This isn't exactly the situation you want to be fronting news stories with. Then again, it's not like Khloe had much choice. As Elle reports, Khloe's March 2nd tweet read:
"This has been [a bad] week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have."
It was a rollercoaster from day one with Tristan. While we read the headlines, had a brief opinion, then got on with our day, the bad week that Khloe mentions is now her reality. Still, she was papped out and about.
9 (Since Jordyn): Time For Reflection, 'Jordyn Is Not To Blame'
Nobody thought that Jordyn Woods would ever come out of this as well as she has. Disloyalty headlines in Hollywood can paint girls in just as bad of a light as guys, but with Jordyn, it seems to be the guy. After initially lashing out at Jordyn, Khloe changed her tone.
"But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault."
As Teen Vogue reports, Khloe's social media commentary turned from criticizing Jordyn to appearing to take her side. Meanwhile, we got this IG pic of Khloe. The focus is blurred, perhaps suggesting that she's not wanting to be seen right now.
8 (With Tristan): A Relationship We Thought Would Work
Sure, relationships in Hollywood don't always work out. Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are no more. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie held out 12 years, but they also collapsed. At the age of 34, Khloe is now more grounded than ever.
With past relationships that failed and a marriage to Lamar Odom that is largely forgotten about, everyone kind of hoped that it would work with Tristan. He seemed genuinely into Khloe. He was flying back and forth from Cleveland to be with her.
As Tristan appeared more on KUWTK and the baby news came, we basically assumed this girl had found her man. Well, until April 2018, that is.
7 (With Tristan): Probably The Last #CouplesSmile We'll See
A smiling couple is what everyone wants. We basically waited for JLO and A-Rod's smiling updates for the whole of 2017 and 2018. To hear that they are now engaged made our lives. Khloe wasn't posing here in the street with Tristan, but she was smiling.
Happiness hasn't come easily to this girl. With the Hollywood spotlight on her, Khloe has battled her shape, her relationships, and overall insecurities.
A happy moment that we'll remember? Fondly, perhaps not, but rather with a bit of a: "Hey! How dare you treat this girl like that?" Also, bonus points for the style here, Khlo.
6 (Since Jordyn): 'Be Aware Of Your Words'
When you're a Kardashian, anything you say can be taken out of proportion. Alongside Kim, Kendall, Kourtney, Kylie, and Kris, Khloe is just another member of this family whose words can be picked apart by the media.
An IG pic doesn't have to have a caption. When "be aware of your words" is alongside the picture though, a message is being sent out. This pic also said:
"Become more aware of the negative things you think and say. What does it actually accomplish by criticizing somebody else? Do you have any concept of how positively it can change someone’s day to receive a compliment or words of encouragement? Try to choose your words wisely."
5 (Since Jordyn): Feeling The Strain?
A public appearance is generally the last thing a celeb wants to be making when the headline is #JordynWoodsStyle. Khloe has a mansion. It's gated, it's private, and she could totally hide out there.
In February 2019, Khloe attended a Pretty Little Thing event in Los Angeles. She opted for leather and black clothing to contrast her awesome blonde hair, but something about this girl was showing the strain.
It isn't rocket science. Between the tweets, mega headlines, and endless rumors, Khloe is bound to be feeling the strain. While she looked beyond beautiful here, we have to say, Khlo looked a little tired.
4 (With Tristan): The Vibe That Just Didn't Feel Right
There was the "in-between" stage. Tristan had already made headlines for his questionable behavior just before Khloe's due date. True was already here. As fans debated whether or not Khloe should even be considering letting Tristan back into her life, it was, ultimately her choice.
KUWTK showed us Khloe making a mature, but clearly difficult, decision. She knew that Tristan would never again come with a "clean slate." Still, she took him back.
It's the vibe, right? That awkward moment when a paparazzo snaps a celeb couple and you can almost feel the tension. Whether or not there was any here is something we'll never know.
3 (With Tristan): Third Risky Basketball Player In A Row
The early days seemed happy. Khloe was dating a basketball player who was paying attention to her, but if you're a fan, you'll know that this girl comes with a pattern. Both Lamar Odom and James Harden were basketball players– both came with a similar end to Tristan.
"They are really cute. She's having a good time. He seems like a really nice guy. I think just with any relationship, just in life, I think it's about chemistry and about values."
In 2016, this is what Kris Jenner had to say to Us Weekly. She did call him a "really nice guy." We'll assume Kris's opinions have changed since then.
2 (Since Jordyn): Family First
This one just touched our hearts. On March 14th, 2019, Khloe updated her IG with this pic. She didn't even need to show her face. The necklace bearing her daughter's name said it all– clearly Khloe's baby girl is the most important thing in the world to her.
"I have to move on with my life & count my blessings, my family, my health, & my beautiful baby True."
As This Is Insider reports, many of Khloe's tweets since the Jordyn Woods drama have revolved around True. Named after a family member, this beautiful baby girl arrived in April 2018. At 34 years old, Khloe finally became a mom.
1 (With Tristan): Honestly? Good Riddance
"Khloé is getting extremely upset with Tristan because he isn’t really making any effort to be involved in their daughter True’s life." As Seventeen reports, the source speaking to Us Weekly wasn't reporting great things about Tristan halfway into March 2019.
How everyone feels? It's a matter of opinion. Some girls will always think that Khloe should have ditched this guy the minute he spelled trouble. Then again, others see that Khloe wanted to make things work for True.
Ultimately though, and especially given the KarJenners' recent vibes, everyone seems to be erring on the side of #GoodRiddance. This girl has been through so much. We're hoping some peace comes her way.
