Khloe Kardashian has taken to Instagram to address reports that she was a sidekick of an NBA player Tristan Thompson while he was dating his first child ‘baby mama’ Jordan Craig. Although, Khloe did not go into details, she said she was 'disappointed' about even needing to post about it, “but. I need to say my truth. Take it as you will.”
She then detailed how she met the NBA athlete, which started in 2017.
“My truth is: I met Tristan because HE CHOSE to go on a blind date with me. A mutual friend set us up,” Khloe wrote on her Instagram page.
She also revealed that after going on some dates the estranged couple, Tristan told her that he had impregnated Jordan Craig but was no longer together with her.
She added: “Obviously, I was reluctant about us continuing to date or start a relationship. He pleaded with me that the relationship was over long before we met. He had me talk with his most inner circle.”
Khloe continued to claim that the basket ball star convinced her that he had ended things with the mother of his first child.
She said the athlete even brought her to his inner circle and mother as he proved to have ended things with the mother of his first child.
“He showed my physical p(r)oof and had me on calls with his lawyers to prove his point. His best friends, business associates and even his mother told me, him and his ex were broken up before we met,” said Khloe.
Khloe then ends her Instagram post by apologising to anyone she had hurt but said the statement was her own truth.
“This is my truth! The truth I believed and trusted. If for any reason this is NOT in fact the truth, I am so completely and utterly sorry that TRISTAN and his inner circle would lie on something like this!” said Khloe.
She adds “I pray my truth is in-fact that. Lord knows I pray but now, I really don't know what to believe.
Truthfully, from the deepest parts of my soul I am sorry! I'm sorry for any pain that has been created either way.No woman deserves to go through anything like this! This is my TRUTH.”
According to a report, Khloe was named as Tristan's 'mistress' in a child support request Craig filed in November.
She claimed when she learned about the illicit relationship, she moved out of the Cleveland home she shared with the professional athlete, and back to Southern California.
South Africans on social media platform Twitter have since expressed their views on the controverse surrounding Khloe and Tristan as the story trended on Wednesday.
