Khloe Kardashian and NBA star, Tristan Thompson, are reportedly trying to make things work between the two after what has been a rocky and tumultuous relationship. The couple had a massive fallout back in the early portion of 2019 when Thompson was accused of cheating on Kardashian with Jordyn Woods, a friend of the family. While nothing was proven, it was enough for the couple to call it quits, only recently deciding to be civil with each other as co-parents for their daughter, True. Well, according to sources, Kardashian and Thompson may be rekindling their romantic relationship.
For Kardashian, she has lacked any certainty that Thompson could be faithful to her, as he was involved in several ‘scandals’ involving at least some aspects of infidelity throughout their relationship. Aside from the Jordyn Woods fiasco, which Thompson admitted to, the NBA basketball player was seen in clips released by TMZ ‘entertaining’ other women right before the birth of their child, True. This would be the third time that Thompson had betrayed Kardashian’s trust, leading them to breaking off any romantic component of their relationship.
No, seriously, it's A LOT.

Despite Thompson’s transgressions, he hasn’t stopped trying to win the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star back. He’s done everything he can think of, from sending Kardashian flowers, and even romantic texts, but nothing has seemed to take hold and mitigate the damage that had been done. On an episode of KUWTK, Khloe shared her frustration with the bombardment of gifts, as if they would completely erase anything he’d done.
“Tristan thinks people are disposable—if he sends me enough flowers or enough text messages, I’m going to come around,” she said in September of 2019. “All Tristan does is send countless amounts of flowers, calls, texts, and I just haven’t been ready to talk to him because I feel like it’s going to turn into a screaming match and I don’t care to scream.”
Regardless, Thompson hasn’t stopped trying. According to sources, though, it may not have been Thompson’s romantic gestures that have led to the couple possibly rekindling their romantic relationship. Kardashian’s desire to rebuild their romance together has everything to do with Thompson being a good father for their daughter and making positive changes for the family.
On January 25th, a source speaking with HollywoodLife! shared that the former couple’s relationship was ‘improving’. “Khloé and Tristan are taking things extremely slow and just talking more,” the source revealed. “They are not at all back together, but are taking small steps to see if they can get there. They are not trying for a baby at all right now. Everything they’re doing is at an extremely slow pace. They’re talking and communicating a lot more and often. It seems they’d both like to try to make things work.”
As for what’s changed Kardashian’s mind over the last several months? The source shared it has to do with Thompson’s drive to be a great father and implement positive changes for their family. “What changed for Khloe around the new year was she realized that Tristan was making positive changes for their family and she really wants to see if she can make it work not only for True’s sake but her own,” the source continued. “She never really got over Tristan and she knows the love she has for him won’t just go away and isn’t easy to find.”
As of now, nothing has been confirmed, so, unfortunately, we’ll have to wait and see if the two formally get back together.
