However, There Is No Romantic Relationship Between The Exes

Khloe’s supportive acts align with her promise to the late Andrea Thompson when she passed on. As The Blast reported, the Good American founder wrote a tribute after the matriarch’s death, assuring her that her boys would be fine. 

Koko wrote, “Just know, I promise you, Amari will be perfectly ok. We will all look after him, help him and protect him. Your boys will be ok because they have their guardian Angel by their side.”

However, despite holding on to her word, the “KUWTK” alum is assuring the world that she and the 31-year-old athlete are not romantically linked even though they would often be seen together.

A source had previously explained, “Khloé has no intention of getting back with Tristan but no matter what happens between them, he’ll always be the father of her kids and her family.”

The source added, “She’s able to remain amicable with Tristan and focus on co-parenting, and the bigger picture because she’s a natural caretaker — she always has been.” The 38-year-old further affirmed this when she finally addressed the speculations about their reconciliation on Twitter.

While interacting with her fans, Khloé responded to a question about her relationship status, writing, “Who has time for a man lol I have a 6-month-old baby, and True and I are sickly codependent on one another. Ha! I secretly love it. No, but for real…. No man right now…. He’s in my prayers, too, ha!”
