Tristan Thompson, 32, now ‘really wants to make it work’ with Khloe Kardashian despite multiple cheating scandals.
The 32-year-old basketballer is hoping to rekindle his romance with the youngest of the Kardashian sisters, 38, after multiple instances of cheating on her and betraying her trust over the years.
A source told US Weekly Tuesday that Thompson, who last played in the NBA for the Chicago Bulls, ‘is always trying to get Khloe back.’
Thompson ‘still loves [Khloe] and wants to make it work between them.’
Thompson, who has been on-again, off-again with Kardashian dating back to 2016, is father to two children with the reality star: daughter True, four, and a son, seven months, whose name they have not publicly announced.
‘They’re friends and great co-parents, but he wants more,’ the insider told the outlet of Thompson.
Thompson celebrated his birthday on Monday, with Kardashian taking to social media to call Thompson ‘the best father, brother & uncle’ in a celebratory post, which received negative comments over his infidelity.
A second source told told Us that the couple was not ‘back together’ and Khloe was upset that she had to turn the comments off on her birthday post for Tristan because ‘people will come for her.’
‘Khloe will never not support Tristan because he’s the father of her two kids,’ the source said.
‘Khloe called him the “best father” because that’s how she feels and she will always stand by that,’ the source continued.
‘Despite whatever happened between them, she has decided to focus on the positive because her children are the most important people in her life. She’s able to separate their past and appreciates the way he shows up for his kids.’
Khloe and Tristan conceived their newest addition via a surrogate, but they broke up before he was born after the affair with Nichols was revealed.
This week was Tristan’s birthday, and Khloe made a very long post to honor her baby daddy.
She shared several photos that include a rare shot of his and Khloe’s second child smiling while sitting in his sister True Thompson’s lap while wearing a Halloween onesie.
