Saying that the situation between Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson is complicated would be like saying the Cleveland Cavs will be slightly worse off without LeBron James, or the Kardashians enjoy posting the occasional selfie.
Ever since Tristan was caught cheating on Khloe while she was pregnant with his child, fans have been calling on the beloved reality star to kick Tristan to the curb.
But try as she might, it seems Khloe just can’t quit Tristan.
There was a time when her mother and sisters were issuing ultimatums, essentially telling Khloe that if she doesn’t dump Tristan, they’ll dump her.
Eventually, of course, they backed away from that stance.
But they might be feeling differently now that they’re witnessing the impact of Tristan’s infidelity firsthand.
Currently, Tristan and Khloe are living in LA during the NBA offseason.
The arrangement allows the couple to spend more time with Khloe’s family, and though she’s spent much of her adult life dreaming of just such a situation, insiders say True’s mom couldn’t be more miserable.
According to a new report from Radar Online, Khloe has been unable to get over Tristan’s cheating, and she resents her baby daddy for casting a dark shadow over what should be the happiest time of her life.
“She even tried to pack her bags on numerous occasions and make arrangements to move in with her family, but when push comes to shove, she never goes through with it,” says one insider.
“She simply can’t cut the cord and always seems to find a way to talk herself out of leaving him, even though her head tells her all day every day that it’s not right,” the insider adds.
As for Tristan, he apparently is doing everything in his power to get into Khloe and her family’s good graces.
We probably don’t need to tell you it’s not working out terribly well for him:
“He’s groveling and bending over backward to please Khloe’s family, spending a fortune in the process,” says one source.
“He’s sending Kris flowers on random occasions, buying gifts for the babies and bowls of fruit for the sisters.”
Well, buying gifts for the baby is just something he should be doing as the kid’s freakin’ dad.
As for those attempts to butter up Kris, Kim and company, Tristan’s cash might be better spent hiring a good lawyer who will save him from losing it all during child support negotiations.
“This is Tristan’s way of worming his way back into the family’s favor because he knows it will take a lot of schmoozing after what he did to Khloe,” says the source.
“She’s not gone to bed feeling happy in many months ever since the cheating scandal happened.”
Sounds like Tristan has a long way to go if he wants to win back Khloe’s trust.
And who knows how many more nights he’ll be willing to sleep on the couch.
Dude is 6’9″, after all.
