Kourtney Kardashian Still Struggles To Forgive Tristan Thompson

In the world of the Kardashians, forgiveness after a major betrayal is not always easy to come by. While some family members are advocating for a second chance for Khloé's ex-partner, Kourtney has different feelings on the matter. 

On the latest episode of Hulu's "The Kardashians," the expectant mother revealed the complexities of her emotions surrounding Thompson's role in their family dynamic. During a trip to Palm Springs with her relatives, she grappled with Tristan's presence, particularly during significant moments like the kids' first day of school.

During her confessional on the show, she admitted to feeling "so triggered" by his presence and even shared that her daughter, Penelope Disick, was not exactly a fan either. "I feel like we all brush it off and are fine, but then I was so triggered. I was just like, I can't do it anymore,"  Kourtney said as she reflected on her feelings. 

The POOSH founder also went further to acknowledge that the NBA star had "made horrible decisions and choices with my sister." His actions had a strong emotional impact on Kourtney, as she emphatically said:

"There are times when I'm so triggered by him I can't be around him and then there's times when I just let it go because we just want harmony and, you know, he's the father of my niece and nephew."

Rather than feel slighted, Khloe fully supported her older sister's sentiment by noting that Kourtney and her 11-year-old's emotions were entirely valid and justified. The Good American founder emphasized that she wanted Penelope to trust her instincts and emotions, without feeling pressured to change her perspective. She stated further:

"I don't want this behavior to be something that I'm validating or I'm justifying. I want her to know that how she's feeling is the right way to feel. We should not accept someone treating her like this."

The "Khloé & Lamar" alum shares two children with the Cleveland Cavaliers player, and although she is focused on healthy co-parenting, the road has been tumultuous. Despite her issues with Thompson, the 39-year-old has remained committed to fostering a positive environment for their kids.

Even though the "Kocktails with Khloé" host is known for her resilience and forgiveness, she is drawing a line in the sand when it comes to her daughter's well-being. After weathering her fair share of betrayals, the media personality is determined to shield her precious offspring from the pain she endured. 

In a previous episode of the popular family's Hulu show, the "Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons" star spoke candidly with her close friend, Malika Haqq, about her fierce stance against cheaters. 

Reflecting on her own experiences, the entrepreneur vowed to ensure that True's future remained untainted by similar betrayals. She delivered a powerful message, stating, "If someone did to my daughter what Tristan did, I would probably castrate them and smile doing it."

The "Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian" star further emphasized during her side interview that the infidelity she faced was no small matter but a deeply traumatic experience. In her words:

"What happened between Tristan and I was not some small little incident. It was some massive situation that really was a very traumatic experience for me in my life, so I'm not going to forget it." 

The "Fashion Police" guest star then disclosed that despite the scars, her heart was devoid of bitterness. She also took pride in demonstrating to her children that co-parenting can be achieved with kindness and maturity. 

Giving herself some much-deserved praise, the "Real Husbands of Hollywood" star said, "I'm so proud that I'm able to be kind and mature and show my children that mommy and daddy can coexist and be co-parents."
