KHLOE Kardashian feels “embarrassed” she believed Tristan Thompson “had changed.”
The reality star’s baby daddy recently welcomed a love child with a personal trainer.
It was revealed Tristan, 30, has a third child when news broke that his personal trainer Maralee Nichols is suing him for child support.
While the NBA star hasn’t publicly confirmed that the child is his, court documents obtained by the DailyMail include Tristan admitting to having sex with Maralee in March.
A source recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight about how Khloe, 37, is holding up amid the drama.
The insider said: “Khloe is pretty embarrassed and kind of gloomy about the news of Tristan’s new [alleged] baby, especially going into the holidays. Khloe is always so positive, but this brought her down a little.
“She has always been into giving Tristan tons of chances and deep down held out hope that they would maybe get back together one day.
“There is no hope and it’s really done for now, but she thinks it’s for the best.”
The informant added that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum isn’t focused on her love life and “is so happy to have her baby girl and just wants to move on and be happy.”
Khloe and Tristan share three-year-old daughter True, while he also has four-year-old son Prince from a previous relationship.
While the source said that Khloe and Tristan are still in contact, their main focus is on True.
The source also told the outlet that the Kardashians “kind of over him right now,” noting: “They would never trash Tristan in front of True, but they think Khloe needs to put him in his place and not act so nice constantly. He hasn’t been great to her.
“The family is not at all surprised by the news and have Khloe’s back and just want her to be fine with it and not sad.
“They don’t think Tristan would ever be faithful and are glad their romantic relationship is done.”
FOCUSING ON HERSELF
Despite seeming ready to cut ties with Tristan romantically, the insider added that Khloe isn’t looking to find a new romance anytime soon.
They said: “Khloe looks better than ever and her body is on fire, but she is not even trying to date.
“Kim [Kardashian] says she will set Khloe up and encourages her to go out, but Khloe is not interested in just doing it to get attention or show she has moved on to the media.
“She is OK being alone right now.”
However, another source told Us Weekly that Khloe is “very sad” amid the drama.
The insider said: “She really loves Tristan and still held a candle for him. She thought he might have changed his ways.
“Khloé now knows that Tristan was unfaithful to her when they were back together.”
THE THIRD BABY
Tristan reportedly welcomed a son with Maralee, while the new mom filed a lawsuit for paternity support.
Tristan’s third baby mama sued the 30-year-old for paternal child support after she claimed they had conceived a baby on the night of his March 13th birthday.
In his response to Maralee’s child support filing, the Sacramento Kings player admitted to having sex with her “several times” at a Houston hotel after they attended his birthday party together.
The fitness guru allegedly “drove him to the event in her Maserati sports car” before they headed back to his hotel where she “had a special birthday surprise” for the athlete.
Tristan claimed he knew the encounter would lead to sex, though he asserted that was the only time they were “intimate.”
However, Maralee’s lawyers claimed that their affair began “five months” before March.
The lawyers added that the Texas native “traveled to California on multiple occasions” and continued to see the then father-of-two “after she got pregnant.”
Maralee filed a lawsuit against her alleged baby daddy after moving from Texas to Los Angeles.
The fitness instructor requested child support as well as reimbursement for “medical expenses and pregnancy-related costs such as Lamaze classes, a doula, and prenatal vitamins.”
In the court documents, Maralee has also asked that Tristan pay for costly items needed after the baby’s birth, including “clothing, formula, and diapers.”
While Tristan hasn’t denied that he is the baby’s father, has requested that a paternity test be completed after the child’s birth.
