In the tabloids, there’s been talk courtesy of sources that Khloé Kardashian’s family believes she deserves better than Tristan Thompson, her NBA-player boyfriend who was publicly revealed to have allegedly cheated on her multiple times days before she gave birth to their daughter, True.
Now, her sister Kim Kardashian is the first to come out publicly against Tristan. She spoke out about his behavior on the Ellen DeGeneres show and additionally unfollowed him on Instagram. Kim’s silence—and with it, look of civil neutrality—are done.
The Instagram unfollow comes shortly after Ellen DeGeneres shared a preview clip of Kim’s appearance on her show Friday. The full interview airs today. Ellen asked Kim about her feelings regarding the Tristan situation. Kim did not hold back:
“Like, I don’t even know how to describe it other than it’s just so fucked up. We really were rooting for Khloé. And we still are. She’s so strong and she’s doing the best she can. It’s a really sad situation all over. I kind of made this rule with my brother: if there’s a baby involved, I’m not going talk—I’m going to keep it cute and keep it classy and not talk too bad on [the parent]—I’m going to try not to say anything too negative because one day, True is going to see this, and it’s just, you know, so messed up.”
All of Kim’s sisters—Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Kendall Jenner—and her mother Kris Jenner still follow Tristan on Instagram. None of them have said anything against him publicly on the record.
Khloé herself, People reported on April 25, has made “no decision” on her future with him, a source said, and is “delaying that conversation until she’s ready.”
