More revelation has emerged following report of NBA star, Tristan Thompson fathering his third child with his personal trainer, Maralee Nichols, while in a romantic relationship with reality show star, Khloe Kardashian.
An insider told PEOPLE that the Good American mogul previously “believed that Tristan would change.”
The source further revealed that Khloe “knows about the baby” and confirms that she and Thompson, 30, were together in March. The former couple share daughter True, 3, and Thompson is also dad to 4-year-old son Prince, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
It was also alleged that Khloe’s friend encouraged her “over and over again” not to take Tristan Thompson back after his past cheating scandals, but she ultimately remained with him “because she always believed that he would change” and wanted to keep the family intact for True.
“She is just a really great person and wants to see the positive in people,” the source says, adding, “It’s just a sad situation to her.”
The insider revealed that Tristan Thompson and Kardashian were “doing great” while quarantined together during the COVID-19 lockdown, but Khloe “knew things would change” as soon as he returned to the NBA. “She was just hopeful that he would stay faithful and loyal to her,” says the source.
“Khloe’s family always tried to support her,” the insider adds. “They always treated Tristan well even after he broke Khloe’s heart multiple times.”
Thompson and Kardashian have been on and off for several years. After briefly reconciling, Kardashian and Thompson split for a final time in June amid more cheating rumors. Another source previously told PEOPLE that the exes are continuing to “keep things friendly” for True’s sake.
