Khloé Kardashian has set the record straight on her relationship status with Tristan Thompson, her ex and father of her two children. Despite posting a birthday tribute to Thompson, the reality star has now confirmed that she is single. Kardashian took to Instagram to share quotes about love, pain, and kindness before hinting at her single status with a post that read: “Being single and posting love quotes to confuse people is another level of fun :)”.
Kardashian shared a quote by Yung Pueblo: “Love is much bigger than relationships”. She went on to share another quote by Melissa Evelyn about pain, as well as an unattributed quote about kindness.
The Good American founder’s clarification on her relationship status came just days after she praised the basketball player in a birthday message.
In the message, Kardashian gushed over the father of her children, calling him “the best father, brother & uncle” and thanking him for his love and attention to their kids.
However, she also seemingly shaded Thompson by saying, “Be strong, be kind, be patient, be free. Continue to make your soul and your mommy proud. Happy birthday baby daddy.”
Tristan received backlash from Khloé’s fans
Despite her seemingly mixed feelings towards Thompson, Kardashian’s Instagram post flooded with comments from netizens bashing Thompson as an alleged bad father and partner. The reality star previously split with Thompson in February 2019 after he was unfaithful several times, but they briefly reconciled the following year until he was caught cheating again.
Thompson admitted to having sex with Maralee Nichols in March 2021, and their son, Theo, was born in December of that year. Kardashian swiftly dumped Thompson following the baby news.
The couple’s on-again, off-again relationship and Thompson’s multiple cheating scandals have garnered widespread media attention. However, Kardashian has now confirmed that she is single, and her recent Instagram posts suggest that she is enjoying her newfound independence. Despite her relationship drama, the reality star continues to prioritize her children and has remained close to her ex for their sake.
