Kourtney Kardashian appears to still not be over Tristan Thompson cheating on her sister Khloe Kardashian. While the NBA player, 32, can be seen trying to reconcile with the family, it seems that the Poosh founder, 44, is still not ready to forgive him. In a preview clip for an upcoming episode of “The Kardashians,” it became apparent that both Kylie Jenner and Kourtney are still affected by Thompson’s cheating scandals. 

“In this family, if you do something to one of us, it affects everyone,” Khloe warned Thompson in the clip. “I’m in the place now where I can own up to the mistakes I made,” said Thompson in response. Despite their breakup in June 2021, the former couple continues to co-parent their daughter True and son Tatum. However, his reputation with the eldest Kardashian sister seems to have acquired a permanent dent. 

Kourtney can’t fake it with Tristan

The teaser revealed a moment where Thompson came over to sit beside Kylie and Kourtney, prompting the makeup mogul to say, “Tristan is coming over and I do feel a little nervous.” She continued, “Everyone got affected differently, but I think you were affected the most.” In response, Kourtney candidly stated, “Tristan and I really have not connected and I just can’t fake it.”

Later, Kourtney and Thompson engaged in a conversation initiated by the socialite. She asked the athlete about his feelings after being unfaithful toward her sister Khloe, to which he responded, “Disgusted.” This led Kourtney to inquire, “So then why do you do it again?”

Both Kourtney and her daughter Penelope dislike Tristan

Last week’s episode showcased that both Kourtney and her daughter Penelope Disick dislike Tristan. “I feel like she gets it from me,” Kourtney explained. “I told her the first day of school, I was so triggered by him … I know why, but I feel like we all brush it off and are fine, and then I was just so triggered and I was like, ‘I just can’t do it anymore.’”

“Tristan has made horrible decisions and choices with my sister,” she added. “There’s times when I’m so triggered by him I can’t be around him and then theres times when I just let it go because we just want harmony and, you know, he’s the father of my niece and nephew.”

Khloe does not mind Penelope’s feelings toward Tristan

Khloé might be on good terms with the basketball player but she does not mind Penelope’s feelings toward Thompson. “Where I am at with Tristan has nothing to do with what I expect my family members to do. If Penelope has feelings about Tristan, rightfully so. And good for you, girl,” Khloé said.

“I want Penelope to have these feelings and I don’t wanna talk her out of them because I don’t want this behavior to be something that I’m validating or I’m justifying. I want her to know that how she feeling is the right way to feel. We should not accept someone treating us like this.”
