Everything You Need to Know About Khloé Kardashian’s Ongoing Tabloid Drama

Only God knows (and perhaps Kim Kardashian) what is going on in the mind of Kris Jenner right now, but she is most likely not happy. Up until this week, the Kardashian news cycle consisted of harmless stories surrounding Kim’s new makeup line and her vacation with sister Kourtney in Turks and Caicos. On Tuesday, however, the focus shifted to Khloé Kardashian and her boyfriend, basketball player and father of her soon-to-be-born child Tristan Thompson, who was caught cheating with a number of women.

On Tuesday, the Daily Mail posted photos and video of Thompson at a club in New York kissing a woman, allegedly Instagram model Lani Blair, a.k.a. very much not Khloé. The woman who recorded the clip said, “They were talking and being around each other all night. He was texting and talking on the phone and she was obviously looking over his shoulder. Everybody knew who he was. We talked about it and everybody watched them make out several times.”

And the floodgates opened. TMZ caught Thompson and the woman from the club arriving at the Four Seasons in Manhattan early Sunday morning. She later left carrying an overnight Louis Vuitton bag. The site also posted another video of Thompson getting a little too close for comfort with two women at a club in Washington, D.C. According to TMZ, the video is from October, when Kardashian would have been three months pregnant.

There was speculation that the woman was an Instagram user with the handle @ms.stephaniee_, who posted text messages and clips from a sex tape she claimed involved Thompson, but TMZ later cast its doubts about her legitimacy.

No official statement has been given from the Kardashian Kamp since the cheating stories exploded onto the Internet, but TMZ reported on Wednesday that Kardashian is experiencing early contractions in Cleveland, where she lives with Thompson. According to the report, Kris Jenner flew out to Ohio Wednesday morning and Kim will fly out later this week.

Kardashian has been open about her fertility struggles in the past, documenting her attempts at getting pregnant with her ex-husband, Lamar Odom. Odom also cheated on Kardashian during their marriage and later almost died from kidney failure and several strokes while staying at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada. Kardashian put their divorce on hold to help Odom with his rehabilitation. According to People, Odom feels “terrible” about the latest news in her love life.

“Lamar feels terrible for Khloé,” a source said. “He wasn’t sure if he should reach out and see how she’s doing. He feels for her.”

One can only wonder how Thompson, a native Canadian, pronounces “sorry.” Soon enough, whether on the currently filming season or through the inevitable online apology video, we’ll find out.
