The ultimate betrayal. Some celebrities have endured their fair share of heartbreak over the years, including many publicized cheating scandals.
Tristan Thompson made headlines twice for cheating Khloe Kardashian — who he started dating in 2016 — over the course of their relationship. The Cleveland Cavaliers player was spotted in April 2018 hugging two women while Kardashian was pregnant with their daughter True. Later that month, Us weekly confirmed that Thompson had been unfaithful to the reality star since November 2017 with at least five different women.
However, Thompson was present at their daughter’s birth, which was documented on Season 15 of Keeping up with the Kardashians.
Us broke the news in May 2018 that the duo were “fully back together” despite Thompson’s infidelity. The revenge body host defended her decision to reunite with the NBA star in November 2018.
“His mistake was obviously humiliating and heartbreaking but I truly believe I am strong enough to get through it all,” she tweeted at the time. “I choose to find a life lesson in every situation, even the nasty ones. Tristan has grown out of this, but most importantly he is a wonderful father to our sweet baby True.”
