Though she’s happily being a mother to baby True, Khloe is terrified that Tristan will cheat again.
But Tristan has allegedly resolved to never cheat on her again. It’s a little late for that.
And apparently we’re supposed to applaud or even pity him for resisting so much “temptation.”
A source close to Tristan Thompson tells HollywoodLife that he’s really, really trying to not cheat on Khloe yet again.
“Tristan knows he can’t f–k up again,” the insider says bluntly.
“And that if he does,” the source continues. “Khloe will kick him to the curb.”
“So he’s focusing all his energy on basketball,” the insider says.
“And,” the source says, Tristan is focused “on playing his best season yet.”
We’re meant to believe that not cheating takes a great deal of effort on Tristan’s part.
“Tristan is constantly surrounded by temptation,” the insider claims, as if Tristan is on a strict diet instead of just being asked to remain faithful.
“Hot chicks literally throw themselves at him,” the source declares.
He’s young and hot and he’s a famous athlete, so that’s no surprise.
The insider says that these women want him “and are constantly flirting with him and vying for his attention.”
Sex is great! But since Tristan chose to enter a monogamous relationship, it is absolutely impossible to pity him over this “predicament.”
“Tristan is doing his utmost to ignore it all, though,” the source says.
“And,” the insider continues, Tristan is trying “to focus on what matters most.”
To make things absolutely clear, what matters most is not banging every available beauty who walks by.
The source clarifies that Tristan’s priorities are: “Khloe, his kids, and his career.”
“It ain’t easy,” the insider claims.
Again, no one is asking him to remain chaste. Just to be monogamous.
“Tristan is young,” the source writes. “He’s in his prime.”
“And,” the insider explains. “All the attention he gets is enough to tempt anyone.”
Right … but he’s the one who signed up to date Khloe. There are plenty of other women who’d be happy to date him in an open relationship.
“But after being caught out before and nearly losing everything he holds dearest,” the source says. “He’s determined to be better.”
So it sounds like he at least learned his lesson … even if it’s a lesson that he should never have needed to learn.
The insider says that Tristan has resolved “to be the man he knows he can be.”
“And,” specifically, the source says that he has decided |to be faithful and loyal to Khloe.”
Usually, that’s a determination that someone makes, um, before they have a baby with their girlfriend.
The inside source affirms that Khloe remains a priority for Tristan.
“She’s his heart and soul,” the insider emphasizes.
That doesn’t explain why he decided to cheat on her repeatedly during her pregnancy.
“And,” the source says. “He never wants to hurt or humiliate her ever again.”
Well, we should certainly hope not.
Life & Style reports that Khloe is lovestruck, but that the rest of her family is much more wary of her continued romance with Tristan.
“Khloe just can’t let this relationship go,” that insider laments.
“All the Kardashians are against her having another baby,” that source shares grimly. “But she won’t listen to any of them.”
That insider shares that “She’s blinded by love when it comes to Tristan.”
That seems to be something that runs in the family. Just look at how ardently Kim defends Kanye over the indefensible.
There are a lot of people who aren’t well-suited to monogamous relationships. Some are aromantic, others simply have too much love to give.
That’s fine! In fact, relationships featuring multiple people or mutually open relationships can be great.
But that is not what Tristan has chosen for himself. He is dating Khloe.
He doesn’t get a gold star for not cheating anymore. That’s just a simple expectation.
And not everyone is convinced that he’ll stay on the straight-and-narrow.
