KhloÃ© Kardashian promises there are “good sides” to her ex Tristan Thompson, but she’s aware his personal issues overshadow whatever it is he’s offering.
The Good American co-founder opened up about where she stands with the Chicago Bulls player on Dear Media’s “Not Skinny But Not Fat” podcast Tuesday and said that they are cordial for the sake of their daughter, True.
“It’s sad because, like, there’s so many good sides to him as well, but no one gets to see those ’cause they’re all overshadowed by, like, the personal stuff that’s going on between him and I,” she explained.
Kardashian even went so far as to say that there are “a lot of other people in the world that have been through probably similar situations” as her.
“I doubt I’m the only human being. I hope not. Well, I don’t want anyone to go through that,” she said, alluding to the athlete’s multiple infidelities.
Kardashian, 37, gave her stock explanation of “everyone making mistakes” but admitted that while Thompson, 31, may be “a good person,” he is “not a good partner” for her.
“I want everyone to still have like a fair shot at just being happy and having a good life,” the “Kardashians” star shared. “So I don’t ever encourage anyone to just, like, jump on that bandwagon, but I also think people can have their own feelings and do what they want, but he’s always going to be in my life because of True, and he’s a great dad, and that’s all I really need to focus on.”
The former “Revenge Body” star confessed that Thompson still tries to reconcile with her but she won’t take the bait because the “facts are the facts” that he welcomed a child with Maralee Nichols, which she found out about via her sister Kim Kardashian.
“I found out every time through a sister. I find out with the rest of the world, which is the most offensive part,” she said of Thompson previously cheating on her while she was pregnant with True, now 4, and later with Kylie Jenner’s then-BFF Jordyn Woods.
“All of it is f–ked up, but can there be a little respect?” KhloÃ© added.
Thompson’s only comment on his paternity scandal and Nichols’ lawsuit came in January when he admitted on social media to fathering their son, Theo, after vehemently denying it in court documents.
Since then, he has allegedly “done nothing” for Theo while maintaining a very public bond with True and 5-year-old son Prince, whom he shares with ex Jordan Craig.
