“She threw you a birthday party and you mean to tell me that the same night you slept with someone else???!!!Bri.”
Tristan Thompson is facing a slew of backlash online after last night’s episode of Kardashians Finally showcasing the sisters’ initial reactions to the shocking paternity scandal earlier this year.
As you probably know, Tristan announced in January that he secretly welcomed a baby with personal trainer Maralie Nichols while he was still in a relationship with Khloe Kardashian.
He initially denied he was the father when Maralli sued him for various child support and pregnancy-related expenses in December, though he noted that the only possible date for a pregnancy was on his 30th birthday in March 2021 – the same night he had it. Khloe publicly announced their romance.
After taking a DNA test, Tristan ended up admitting that the baby, named Theo, was actually his. It remains unclear whether he is involved in the child’s life at the moment, with Marali claiming back in February that he had made “no attempt” to meet their son nor offered “any financial assistance”.
Tristan announced the news of his paternity in January, writing on his Instagram story: “The results of a paternity test today reveal that I have given birth to a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to raising our son amicably. I sincerely apologize to everyone who I have been hurt or disappointed during this ordeal both publicly and privately.”
“Chloe, you don’t deserve this,” he continued. “You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I’ve caused you. You don’t deserve the way I’ve treated you over the years. My actions certainly didn’t align with the way I see you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. No matter what you might think. Again, I’m so sorry.”
Khloe – who shares a 4-year-old daughter True with Tristan – has broken up with him on several occasions after several infidelity scandals since he started dating in 2016.
But almost two years after their split when Khloe’s then best friend Tristan kissed Jordyn Woods, the reality star announced that she’s reunited with the sweet Instagram tribute she shared on his 30th birthday.
After posting a series of photos from the lavish party that Tristan threw herself, Khloe wrote a lengthy comment declaring her love and admiration for the NBA star on March 13.
“The people who are meant to be are the ones who go through everything designed to tear them apart and come out stronger than they were before,” Chloe wrote. “Thank you for showing me everything you said to me. For daddy you are. For my best friend in you. I’m thankful I can do absolutely nothing with you and it feels like everything.”
However, we now know that the same night that Chloe and Tristan threw the huge party and announced their reunion, he later traveled to Houston, where he slept and drank Marley.
And now the reality series Hulu Kardashians He unveils the Kar-Jenners’ raw reactions to the scandal, with last night’s episode showing exactly how sisters Kim, Kourtney, Kylie, and Khloe found out.
And it turns out the group was totally taken aback by the news, as Kim called each of them during rehearsal at 6:30 a.m. to address the matter.
While speaking on the phone with her mother, Kris Jenner, Kim read Tristan’s legal statement, in which he admitted sleeping with Marale on his 30th birthday. The documents were first released last December.
“I met this girl Tristan Thompson in Houston and slept with her for my 30th birthday,” Kim reads, adding that she texted Tristan directly asking if Khloe knew everything.
Then Kim gets a phone call from his youngest sibling, Kylie Jenner, who is equally shocked about Tristan. “You lie,” she said after Kim said, before moving on to describing the NBA player as “the worst person on the planet.”
“No, I’m not lying. And I’m shivering for [Khloé]. My soul is killing and dying for it,” Kim replies frantically. Before long, they are joined by one of their other sisters, Kourtney Kardashian, who calls out Tristan for his “never-ending betrayal of Chloe.”
Meanwhile, Kim continues to read Tristan’s legal announcement, in which he reveals that he has left the 30th party that Khloe threw him to sleep with Marley in Houston. In fact, he noted, he was told she wanted to give him a “special birthday surprise,” which he said he “understands as sex.”
says the petitioner [Maralee Nichols] we started [sexual contact] She never objected to intercourse. The petitioner insisted that she meet me at my hotel and spend the night. She wanted to give me a special birthday surprise, which I understood meant sex.”
“When we got to my hotel room, we had sex right away.” This is Tristan speaking! These are his [words]’ She continues.
“He asks for a paternity test and admits he had sex with her. Khloe threw him his 30th birthday! So he came home from the 30th birthday party, went to Houston to play on the road—we can check his schedule—and then slept with this girl,” she adds.
“I just sent it to him and went, ‘Does Chloe know about this? “Chloe doesn’t answer, she has no idea.”
Kourtney says, “If he didn’t at least talk to her about these things before they happened that’s just crazy.” Kylie replies, “It’s just crazy in general.”
We’ll have to wait for next week’s installment until Khloe’s full reaction to the shocking news, though when seeing Tristan’s ad for the first time, she said over the phone to Kim, “What the hell is this?”
Unsurprisingly, in the hours since the episode aired, Tristan has been at the center of the internet backlash, with many sports fans calling for his “horrible” actions to come out.
“Tristan must hate Chloe!!! She threw you a birthday party and you mean to tell me that same night I slept with someone else??? !!! WILD,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Tristan, what a horrible human being!!! after Chloe throws him a party and cheats on the same night???” added another.
“So Chloe threw Tristan’s 30th birthday, then left and went for his birthday and got another woman pregnant. One wrote ‘Chloe deserves better.'”
Meanwhile, the popular TheShadeRoom Instagram page posted a shocking clip from the episode, which was met with another flood of comments condemning Tristan.
“Betrayal never ends. Get Chloe out,” one user wrote.
“Kylie’s just crazy in general.” He speaks the facts,” another added.
