It’s confession time for Tristan in the latest episode of The Kardashians.
The last episode on the reality TV show ended with a heated confessional conversation between Kourtney Kardashian and Thompson, where she directly confronts him on the multiple cheating scandals he infested on her sister Khloe, right after which the credits rolled in.
According to People’s report, the 44-year-old Kardashian asked Tristan what his ‘goal’ was going forward. To this, the NBA player opened up about his future intuitions, saying, “Would I love to be with your sister and spend the rest of my life with her? Of course. My goal is to have my family back as a whole unit.” He continued, saying, “Even though I never grew up with a happy household, I’ve always wanted it.” The Cleveland Cavalier then went on to admit that his own actions have led his relationship with Khloe to crumble, stating, “But, I’ve done things that put me in a position to be out of that.”
People reported that the Lemme founder and mother of four then urged the NBA player to take “accountability” for his past wrongdoings, and the father of four vowed to “be better” for the entire family. He confessed, “I’m a firm believer that if you make a mistake, you have to be accountable for it and stand on two feet. You do the crime, ya gotta own it,” adding about his two children whom he shares with Khloe (True, 5 and Tatum, 1), “I want to be a good example for them.”
He adds to this by explaining, “I always tell Khloé, when it comes to True and having that conversation, it’s on me to have that conversation, because Daddy failed you and Mommy…Mommy didn’t fail you.” The mature conversation progressed with the Poosh owner confessing that her family’s preference to keep things “fun and happy” can often “take priority over setting a boundary and having someone’s back.”
To this, Tristan added that he is not proud of the person he was but is proud of the person he is becoming. He further progressed the conversation, “For that to happen, I had to fall, hit rock bottom, lose everything in life….you’ve got to pick your s— up. You’ve got to be better. I needed to grow so I could be better for my kids.”
According to People, Kourtney then reflected on this exchange in a Thursday confessional on the show itself and said she wasn’t there “to hold a grudge” against him. “I do believe that people can grow,” Kourtney said, adding that she finds “the work he’s doing” and “path that he’s on” to be “interesting.”
However, she also leveled the field, saying that it’s “concerning” whenever “your words don’t match your actions,” and she’s eager to see more growth from Tristan. She adds, “Talk is cheap.” Additionally, People also reports her speaking of her sister saying that the Kardashian clan “can tend to normalize these behaviors of some of the men in our lives,” regarding infidelity and trust, “and I don’t want to show my daughter that that’s ok,” concluding her confessional with, I think having forgiveness and giving grace is right, but also, having really clear boundaries is important.”
Per People reports, after several cheating and s*x scandals, including secretly fathering a child with Maralee Nichols while being with Khloe, the Good American founder called it quits months before the birth of their son Tatum in August 2022 and has no intentions of getting back together.
