Khloé Kardashian was seen hugging her ex-brother-in-law at nephew Saint’s basketball game in Los Angeles, CA on Thursday, despite his complicated co-parenting relationship with her sister Kim Kardashian.

The “Kardashians” star and the “Donda” rapper appeared sharing an embrace as they both came to support West’s son, Saint for his game. The hug, shared by them was captured by an onlooker at the event. The two were excitingly cheering for the eight-year-old from the stands, as they sat near each other during the game.

Khloé was accompanied to the game by her daughter True, 5, and her 7-year-old niece, Dream.

For the event, Kardashian was seen wearing a long cream-coloured coat over a black shirt, with her hair down. For footwear, she opted for a pair of Jordans, completing the look with black sunglasses and long red nails. While West was wearing his signature black hoodie and matching pants with his new Yeezy pod shoes.

Kim and Kanye, who share four kids together- North, 10, Saint, 8, Chicago, 5, and Psalm, 4 have had a complicated relationship since Kardashian filed for divorce in February 2021. Reports suggest that Kanye was ordered to pay $200,000 a month to Kardashian as child support when they settled their divorce in November 2022. Kanye has spoken against their co-parenting situation several times, through his online posts and song lyrics.

“Wait, when you see the kids? I’ll see y’all tomorrow/Wait, when the sunset? I see y’all tomorrow/Wait, when I pick ‘em up, I feel like they borrowed,” West wrote in the lyrics of his song, “True Love,” in May 2022.

“I get visitation with my kids — I ain’t get no say so. They’re walking around with soccer players they don’t even f–king know,” he also said in a rant video in December 2023.

In December 2022, Kim also shared her feelings about co-parenting her kids with West, during the “Angie Martinez” podcast. “Co-parenting is hard,” she said getting emotional. “It’s really f—king hard.”

She further said, “I had the best dad, and I had the best memories and the greatest experience and that’s all I want for my kids as long as they can have that,” referring to her late father, Robert Kardashian.

“That’s what I would want for them. If they don’t know the things that are being said or what’s happening in the world, why would I ever bring that energy to them? That’s really heavy grown-up s–t that they’re not ready to deal with,” Kardashian said as she revealed her efforts for trying to shield her kids from their father’s controversial behavior.
