After Khloe Kardashian revealed that she had refused Tristan Thompsonengagement request, source says Way of life that the Good American co-founder and NBA player were engaged for 9 months before going their separate ways after his paternity scandal.
The first news from Tristan’s first proposal was revealed as Khloé, 38, spoke with her sister Kim Kardashian during the Thursday, September 29 episode of The Kardashiansin which the 41-year-old SKIMS founder dropped a major bombshell out of nowhere.
“I mean, the fact that [Tristan] proposed and you never told us, and I asked him the night after I thought it had happened and he said, “I did that months ago”. She didn’t tell you guys?’ Kim recalled, adding in a confessional that Tristan, 31, said he planned to propose on Valentine’s Day.
Khloé went on to explain why she turned down Tristan’s first proposal, which allegedly happened in December 2019.
“I said, ‘I have to make sure it’s a totally different relationship because I want to be proud to say I’m engaged to anybody,'” Khloé revealed. “That’s why I said, ‘I’m not comfortable accepting this because I’m not thrilled to tell my family. And as hurt as it was for him to hear, it was the truth. I would never agree to anything and give someone false hope.
However, after the NBA player popped the question a second time in February 2021, Khloé said yes, and the couple were engaged until Tristan fathered a child with Maralee Nichols broken in December 2021.
“Today paternity test results revealed that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions,” the basketball star wrote in January, before apologizing with his ex. “Khloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartbreak and humiliation I caused you. You don’t deserve the way I’ve treated you over the years.
It was later revealed that the couple were expecting their second baby by surrogate mother – a boy who was conceived a month before Tristan’s paternity scandal broke – a representative of Khloé confirmed at Way of life in July.
“We can confirm that True will have a sibling who was conceived in November,” the statement read. “Khloé is incredibly grateful to the amazing surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We would like to ask for your kindness and privacy so that Khloé can focus on her family.
The couple welcomed their son on July 28 and have yet to reveal their baby boy’s name. They are also parents to daughter True, whom they welcomed in April 2018.
