Kim Kardashian Publicly Addresses the Khloe and Tristan Thompson Cheating Scandal on ‘Ellen’

At the beginning of April, news broke that Tristan Thompson was allegedly cheating on his pregnant girlfriend, Khloe Kardashian. Within days of the scandal breaking in the news and on social media, Khloe actually gave birth to the couple’s daughter, True Thompson. While the Kardashian and Jenner family has rallied around Khloe since the allegations came to light, they have remained relatively quiet in regard to their thoughts on the entire situation.

However, while the Kardashians and Jenners have been trying to support Khloe and her daughter, True, it seems that they are certainly not happy with what is going on, as E! News reports. In fact, a source said to be close to the family revealed that right now everyone is “very angry with Tristan and having a hard time coming to terms with Khloe trying to forgive him.” Apparently, the family does not seem to think that he will be able to change, and while they have not spoken out against Tristan Thompson because they want to be supportive of Khloe, in an upcoming appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, it seems that Kim Kardashian is finally opening up about the cheating scandal.

According to The Daily Dish, Kim is set to appear on Ellen’s show in an episode that will air on April 30, 2018. In a clip that was shared by the talk show, it seems that the reality star is opening up a bit about what happened with her sister and her own thoughts on the situation, while also talking about Kanye West and his tweeting.

In the preview for the episode, Ellen DeGeneres brings up the scandal revolving around Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson, asking Kim what she thinks about everything. Kim Kardashian explained that she does not really know what to say because, “it’s just so f***ed up.” She also said that everyone was “really rooting for Khloe, and we still are … you know.” Kim said that she thinks that her sister is “so strong and she’s doing the best that she can.” The reality star went on to say that she finds the entire situation to be rather sad. However, while she might have plenty of opinions about Tristan Thompson and what has happened, she plans to do exactly what she does when it comes to her brother and his problems.

Kim Kardashian said that whenever there is a child involved in a situation within the family then, “I’m gonna keep it cute and keep it classy and and not talk too bad; I’m gonna try not to say anything so negative,” because she knows that at some point in time there is a chance that True could see what she had to say. So, while Kim may not be happy about what is happening with her sister, she also does not want to say anything negative that will one day be shown to her niece.

The appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show seems to mark the first time that one of the members of the Kardashian and Jenner family have spoken out regarding the alleged cheating scandal revolving around Tristan Thompson and Khloe. While the situation might be addressed on the family’s reality show in the future, for now it seems as if everyone is trying to be positive and supportive in order to be there not only for Khloe, but also for her daughter.
