All's fair in love and war, and apparently, Kim Kardashian West has resolved any ill will she held towards her younger sister Khloe Kardashian's ex Tristan Thompson. The feud might have sparked due to cheating rumors, but the dust has settled and now Kim is looking at the relationship with brand new eyes.

The KKW Beauty founder is taking the high road as a means to keep the peace and provide a united front for her sister and her neice, True.

Kim first displayed her mature new lease on life during the season 18 premiere of the E! hit reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. In the premiere episode, Kim met up with Tristan to squash any remaining beef they might have had following the demise of his and Khloe's relationship.

Last year, Tristan made headlines for his infidelity while with Khloe. The fever pitch of his actions came when he hooked up with Kylie Jenner's best friend at the time Jordyn Woods.

The end result was a display of betrayal as well as humiliation and, naturally, Kim became protective of her sister who was very pregnant at the time of the news. Like much of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kim defended Khloe against Tristan's actions. So, for a while, she wasn't playing nice with him at all.

According to the season premiere, that's all in the past now. Tristan met up with Kim and her group of friends (Winnie Harlow, Jonathan Cheban, Simon Huck, and La La).

The rest of the group didn't love the idea, but Kim explained to her friends, "Tristan is True's dad. So regardless of whatever, he's connected for life, we can't change that."

The dinner between the party of six went over so well and proved to many that Kim was doing the right thing by initiating their reconnection. While watching the episode, a fan commented on Twitter, "Ok, all jokes aside, I love how [Kim Kardashian] is trying to keep the peace between her and Tristan. Maturity."

Kim quoted the tweet and replied, "I actually LOVE Tristan now like a brother FR! We totally bonded and worked through our issues and love him."

Tristan didn't tweet during the premiere, but Khloe, who has been holed up in self-quarantine with him and their daughter True, made it clear to her followers that he was indeed watching the "awkward" moments unfold alongside her. She tweeted, "I love that Tristan is watching this premiere with me and he is now seeing what they say when he's not around lol AWKWARD!!"

Khloe also playfully added that she could feel the tension as the scene unfolded. Khloe was the first of the sisters to make peace with her former flame, and rightfully so, as the mother of his child. Khloe has been forthcoming about how "hard" letting go of the past can be, but for the sake of a healthy co-parenting relationship with Tristan, the reality star says it's worth it.

The two may or may not be headed for a reconciliation, but in the meantime, doing what's best for their daughter True is of the utmost importance to the both of them.
