Khloé Kardashian is giving Tristan Thompson another shot and she doesn’t care what people think.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is slowly emerging back into the spotlight, just weeks after giving birth — and weeks after Thompson’s very public cheating scandal. On Friday, Kardashian, 33, and Thompson, 27, were photographed looking happy together while out to lunch with friends. On Saturday, Kardashian attended the Cleveland Cavaliers playoff game, which was a bold move to support her beau.

“She made the decision that she feels is best for her and her family,” a source close to the Kardashians tells Yahoo Entertainment of her reconciling with Tristan. “She’s happy and what happened was devastating, but she’s really working to put the past behind her. She just wants positive energy around her and True. She really loves Tristan.”

Wearing sunglasses and a leopard-print ensemble, Kardashian wasn’t hiding as she sat in the stands to cheer on Thompson, according to images shared on Twitter. And Twitter had a lot of thoughts about the reality star’s choice to reconcile with Thompson. Spoiler alert: They weren’t positive. Random people online aren’t the only ones with lots of feelings about this. A second source tells Yahoo Entertainment that Kardashian’s famous family is having a “hard time” with her decision to take him back.

“Everyone is just worried and isn’t sure if he’s really changed,” says a source close to the KarJenners. “They still can’t believe he did what he did and just wants the best for Khloé.”

Still, the insider says everyone will rally around Kardashian and support her. “They just want her to be happy,” says the insider.

Kardashian sort of addressed the cheating scandal for the first time while commenting on an Instagram post from E! News.

“Khloé feels like she is living in her own personal hell,” E! News, which shares a network with Keeping Up With the Kardashians, posted. “If there’s any sister that understands a bit of what Khloé is going through it’s Kourtney Kardashian.”

Khloé responded, “Oh damn… I hope I don’t crush her by leaning on her! I love my little @kourtneykardash.”

Kourtney Kardashian, who went through her own cheating scandal with longtime love Scott Disick years ago, has been the most understanding of Khloé’s choice to stay in Cleveland.

Kim Kardashian recently addressed the cheating scandal for the first time, calling it “messed up.”

“Poor Khloé,” she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “Like, I don’t even know how to describe it besides it’s just so f***ed up.”

“We really were rooting for Khloé — and we still are,” Kim added. “She’s so strong and she’s doing the best that she can. It’s really a sad situation all over. I kind of made this rule with my brother — if there’s a baby involved, I’m going to keep it cute, keep it classy, and not talk too bad.”

Kim would be referring to the drama between Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna. “I’m going to try not to say anything so negative because one day, True is going to see this.”

Still, she said, “It’s just so messed up.” (Kim then unfollowed Thompson on social media.)


Kris Jenner tap-danced around the issue more during her appearance on Ellen. “Pretty unexpected, but Khloé is amazing,” Jenner said. “I’m so proud of that kid. I get choked up because she’s such a good mom. Honestly, I get so emotional. … She’s figuring it out just one day at a time and she’s just the best mom already and that baby is so cute, little True.”

We’ll have to wait and see if Khloé continues her forgiveness tour at the Cavs game tonight.
