Khloe Kardashian reportedly feels “stuck” in Cleveland with her newborn daughter True, and “doesn’t have the strength” to head back to Calabasas — with or without baby daddy Tristan Thompson. But is Khloe leaving Tristan? According to several insiders, the first-time mom still has a lot to figure out, but may be leaning toward a split.
Khloe gave birth to her baby daughter True on April 12th, just two days after the first stories of Tristan Thom[son’s alleged infidelity broke. Since then, talk of Tristan’s cheating ways has grown considerably; he’s allegedly cheated on Khloe with at least five different women over the last several months.
Khloe and Tristan had also been reportedly planning a low-key wedding for later this year, after their baby was born. But now, according to an anonymous source said to be close to Khloe, the 33-year-old reality star doesn’t know what to believe.
“[Khloe]’s not in a bubble of denial,” the source told Entertainment Tonight, adding that Khloe is “still trying to process it, but so far, she’s managed to move past it and look forward.”
As far as the new allegations against Tristan, it seems those closest to Khloe are reluctant to tell her too much:
Her friends and family are learning all these new details and it’s hard to know what’s just someone trying to cash in and what is true. It’s tough to know what, if anything, to tell Khloe….If a friend tells Khloe that they heard about another cheating story, they risk being cut off by her. She’s stuck by her man in the past, so it doesn’t even seem worth it to fill her in on all the details…every day there seem to be more stories [coming] out about Tristan.
Further complicating the matter is the fact that, according to a second source, Khloe is “ashamed” of the whole situation — and is beginning to feel trapped in Cleveland, where she went to nest and prepare weeks before her due date.
“Khloé is keeping quiet because she is ashamed to face her fans and most of her friends,” the source told BET. “She feels torn, and like, no one understands what she is going through.”
It’s possible that Khloe is waiting for the Cleveland Cavaliers to finish up their playoff run before figuring things out with Tristan. (Though the two of them could probably have a heart-to-heart right now, if they wanted; Tristan has logged a total of nine minutes on the court through four playoff games.) But the second source also suggested that Khloe is completely drained, and in no shape for a confrontation:
Khloé is afraid to raise baby True on her own and wanted nothing more than to have this perfect happy family. She knows everyone will tell her to get out of Cleveland and bring her baby back to LA, but as much as she wants to, she just can’t leave right now….She is well aware that she can’t just let Tristan’s cheating be acceptable, because everyone around her is telling her she needs to get out. [But Khloe] just doesn’t have the strength right now.
Khloe did update fans with a new message on her app earlier this week. The quick note is about finding happiness, and while it’s directed at Khloe’s siblings, some fans couldn’t help detecting a more obvious meaning:
“I genuinely wish for all of my siblings that they find everlasting happiness in all that they do,” Khloe wrote. “Life is short, and at times, we put so many others before us, but one of our priorities should be our own happiness. Once you have that, it trickles down to everyone around us. I sincerely wish happiness and peace to my sisters and brother.”
