Tristan Thompson Was All Ready to Propose to Khloe, Until…
As previously recappd, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian jetted off to Japan on this week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
But buried in the rundown of the latest fight between these siblings was the fact that Tristan Thompson admitted during this same installment that he wanted Khloe to go someplace else with him at some point:
Oh, yes, the professional baller (in the sense of playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers and plowing any Instagram model that shows interest) said he had plans to propose!
In a scene from the installment, Thompson FaceTimed with Kris Jenner in order to chat about a push present for Kardashian.
(At the time, she was expecting the couple’s first child, daughter True. These episodes were filmed a hilariously long time ago.)
“I remember Koko saying she wanted something where she could pass it down, generation after generation,” Thompson told Kris, to which she replied as follows:
“You know, Corey [Gamble] bought me for Christmas a couple of years ago this really beautiful little diamond ring that you could put on any finger.
“You know, until you get that really huge diamond that’s going to go on on her ring finger!”
In other words:
Ask for my daughter’s hand in marriage, dammit!
What are you waiting for?!?
Not much, Tristan actually replied, stating on this call that he has every intention of making an honest woman out of Khloe.
“Of course,” he replied about proposing. “Eventually!”
Wow. We had no idea Thompson had really thought about this possibility at all.
So… why didn’t he go through with it?
Because it soon came out that he had been cheating on Khloe left, right and in every direction in between.
Those allegations had not yet come to light when Thompson had this discussion with Jenner and he’s been spending every second since merely getting Khloe to trust him again.
It would be quite the leap to go from sleeping around on your girlfriend to then getting engaged to this same girlfriend in just a matter of months.
Many viewers, meanwhile, are wondering whether we’ll see Khloe’s reaction to Tristan’s infidelity on upcoming episodes — and the answer is yes.
You can even get a sneak peek at what this will look like HERE.
While the new mother has largely avoided publicly discussing the cheating scandal, Khloe did address it on social media last month.
She did so while responding to speculation that she and Thompson were talking about, you guessed it… getting married.
In a reply to an Instagram user who accused her of “acting like Tristan didn’t cheat,” Khloe grew defensive and shot back:
“I’m not acting as if Tristan didn’t cheat. I’m saying the story about marriage and anyone insinuating they know what we speak about privately is crap.”
Fair enough, right?
As for whether the pair will walk down the aisle someday?
Let’s slow that roll.
The better question right now is whether Khloe will move to Cleveland with Tristan, as insider now say she is having doubts.
“Khloe has seemed emotional,” says a People Magazine source, adding:
“Her feelings about Tristan cheating is something that she is still dealing with. She has good weeks when she is fine about it and weeks when she is upset about it.
“It’s of course difficult to trust someone 100 percent who cheated days before he was about to become a dad.
“Khloe still struggles with this sometimes.”
