In the wake of Tristan Thompson and Khloé Kardashian‘s cheating scandal, the obvious question on everyone’s minds is: WTF, Tristan?!?! And also: Is Khloé going to stay with her boyfriend?
Per sources close to the situation, the answer is mostly likely yes. “She’s a hopeless romantic and she’ll try to make this work,” a source tells People. “She tried forever to make it work with Lamar [Odom]. She’s having a child with Tristan, and she’s going to try to rebuild this.”

In fact, had Tristan’s infidelity been limited to a brief fling, Khloé could have potentially looked the other way away. “Khloé could probably convince herself to get over the fact that he maybe, kind of, sort of, hooked up with some groupie while out on the road. But being so indiscreet about it and letting it get splashed all over the place and having it humiliate her? That’s actually even worse.”
Khloé reportedly has a history of forgiving the men in her life for their questionable behavior, and usually finds a way to blame their circumstances instead of them.

“The thing about Khloé, though, is she’s a big believer in knowing someone’s back story and understanding how it motivates them,” the source says. “With Lamar, her heart broke for everything he’d been through in the past, losing his mom and his grandma and his baby boy, and she used that as a justification for why he struggled so much with addiction and cheating. She’s got a big heart—too big sometimes.”
Tristan allegedly cheated on his pregnant ex girlfriend Jordan Craig with Khloé, and if you’re wondering why this wasn’t a red flag, it’s (again) because of Khloé’s kind nature. “With Tristan, she believed his back story that he was never even that committed to her or in love with Jordan, and that he’d never meant to be with Jordan long-term. Khloé let herself believe that he’s a really good guy with a good heart. She might still believe that, honestly.”
As of now it doesn’t appear as though Khloé has seen her ex, but she’ll reportedly allow him in the delivery room when their baby is born.
