Khloé Kardashian Sob Over Tristan’s Maralee Nichols Scandal

It’s time for fans to see how Khloé Kardashian dealt with discovering that Tristan Thompson was cheating on her with Maralee Nichols.

On Thursday’s season finale of Hulus’ “The Kardashians,” Kim Kardashian broke the news to her sister about Thompson’s paternity case, in which he admitted to sleeping with Nichols around his 30th birthday.

“Let me fucking call him. I can’t fucking believe this. I just want the truth,” Khloé said to Kim on the phone before collapsing and sobbing.

“Everything will be fine, whatever happens,” the Skims founder assured her. “Everything will be fine. We really believed he had changed like I was his biggest supporter, but if this isn’t the most obvious situation, I don’t know what is.”

Khloé, 37, said in a confession that she “find out with the rest of the world” and taunted Thompson, with whom she shares daughter True, for disrespecting her and turning their relationship into “a lie.”

“I don’t really feel in my own body, like these things just happen, and I just go through the motions,” she said, “but when things happen to you a few times, you kind of become immune to it, that is really sad.”

The Good American co-founder continued to explain to a Hulu producer that not only “one thing hurts more than another” because “everything” Thompson, 31, was an “act of betrayal.”

“Everything is a lie. Everything is manipulation. It is deception. Did Tristan have every opportunity to tell me? Yes. Would Tristan tell me if there was no baby involved? Absolutely not, and that says a lot about being character,” Khloe said.

“The whole thing is despicable.”

Since the Chicago Bulls player, who doesn’t appear in the episode, was able to hide an unborn baby from Khloé and those closest to him, Khloé told Kendall Jenner via FaceTime that she thinks there are probably “a dozen other situations that have didn’t finish him.”

Khloé said the fallout left her with such anxiety that she became so dehydrated that at one point she “fainted” and was prescribed beta-blockers to treat.

“I feel incredibly let down,” she said.

The episode concluded with the former “Revenge Body” star packing up some of Thompson’s belongings because he will no longer be living with her and True at Khloé’s house.

The last two episodes were filmed in the late fall of 2021 when the NBA player confirmed in court documents that he had slept with Nichols, a fitness model, and wanted a paternity test. (The following month, he revealed he was the father of the model’s son, Theo.)

“Khloé, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the grief and humiliation I inflicted on you,” he wrote at the time. “You don’t deserve the way I’ve treated you over the years.”

Thompson previously cheated on Khloé with an Instagram model when she was pregnant with their daughter True, now 4, in 2018. She forgave him at the time, but in 2019 he became embroiled in another cheating scandal, this time with Kylie Jenner’s ex-girlfriend. friend Jordyn Woods. After reconciling with the Woods drama, Thompson was again accused of cheating on Khloé with model Sydney Chase in January 2021.

Earlier in this season of ‘The Kardashians’, Khloé revealed that the pair had gotten back together just before Travis Barker’s October 2021 proposal to Kourtney Kardashian

“Were good. We’re actually in a really good place. We just got back together. He goes into therapy a lot. There’s just been a lot of effort on his part,” she said, adding: “When we broke up, I learned how well he and I got along and what good friends we are and what good partners we are and I have a lot of hope and faith and optimism for our future together.”

The Nichols paternity scandal broke just months later, in December 2021.
