Everything Khloé Kardashian Has Said About the Tristan Thompson Cheating Scandal
If you haven't heard about the Khloé Kardashian–Tristan Thompson–Jordyn Woods cheating scandal yet, there's a lot going on (also, welcome back from whatever desert island you escaped to). Basically, Thompson, who's been caught cheating before, and Woods—Kylie Jenner's now former BFF—allegedly kissed at a house party. The details are still vague, but it's safe to say that Kardashian isn't thrilled about what happened. She's talked about the situation on social media several times—either explicitly referencing it or being a little less direct with a caption or quote we can read between the lines of. Below, a comprehensive list of all the times she's mentioned (or hinted at) the drama:
Times She’s Explicitly Talked About the Scandal
A week after this story broke, on February 26, she posted a thank-you to her supportive followers on Twitter: "Hi loves, wanted you to know that I appreciate you! 🙏🏽 I’ve been reading your kind words and they really are a blessing to me. I love you! Thank you Thank you! I’ll be back when I’m in the mood to chat with you all. Until then remember to be kind to one another 💕"
She also (very problematically) called out Woods on March 1 after the latter went on Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk to share her side of the story. "Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!"
She followed that up with some clarification. "Tristan is equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child," she tweeted. "Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY. If Tristan were to lie publicly about what conspired, then yes I would address him publicly as well."
Kardashian seems to have realized that didn't quite hit the right note either and came back with another message on March 2: "This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have. Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me, wasn’t such a shock as the first time."
She continued, laying the blame squarely on Thompson. "What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me," she tweeted. "Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault."
"I have to move on with my life & count my blessings, my family, my health, & my beautiful baby True," she finished.
Times She Might Have Hinted at It
On February 19 she commented on a post from Hollywood Unlocked's Instagram about the incident with several speaking-head emoji. Her friend Malika Haqq also commented with "HARD FACTS." Fans at the time took this as Kardashian confirming the rumor.
Kardashian has also posted several quotes to Instagram Stories that may or may not be about this situation. On March 16 she uploaded a quote about deciding you want better for yourself and never looking back:
But the most telling IG Stories update came on February 21 when she posted these three quotes:
Two days later she shared this quote saying it's not our job to fix "fucked up" people.
Alongside messages addressing shame and resilience.
Before the general public learned about what happened between Thompson and Woods, Kardashian posted three Instagram Stories that suggested she already knew. "If your friendship has lasted longer than seven years, you are no longer friends. You are family," reads one quote she uploaded.
She also shared this message about choosing love over material things:
And another quote about self-love:
On the day of Woods' Red Table Talk interview (March 1), Kardashian posted a cryptic quote about cheaters, followed by another quote about feeling lost.
That same day Kardashian posted this behind-the-scenes version of a pic she'd put up on February 18, right before the news got out. Here's the original pic, which she captioned, "'Are you willing to give up what you love, for who you love?' Big Sean"
And what she posted after: "Start each day with a grateful happy heart. Count your blessings over your burdens. Smile, you got this! Lord, thank You."
On March 7 she Instagrammed a picture of herself with the words "I believe in you, your abilities and your heart! Stay positive about everything. Each one of us, is simply trying to figure it all out."
The next day Kardashian posted a picture of her looking at her phone, maybe scrolling through the comments left behind by Instagram trolls. "'Your perception of me is a reflection of you' Be aware of your words. What you say does matter. Become more aware of the negative things you think and say," she wrote in the caption. "What does it actually accomplish by criticizing somebody else? Do you have any concept of how positively it can change someone’s day to receive a compliment or words of encouragement? Try to choose your words wisely. What you say to others says much more about you than it does about them."
By mid-March, she seemed pretty focused on getting over it all, with a picture that shows her looking "Focused and Motivated" indeed.
