Co-Parenting is a difficult task when infidelity is the reason for a breakup, and now Khloé Kardashian has opened up about that very subject following Tristan Thompson's very public affairs.
“It does f*king suck because our personal emotions are still in there,” Kardashian told Cosmopolitan. “So those emotions can be heightened at times, but I do everything in my power — True is one and, like, a month old — so she doesn’t really know what’s happening, but to me, she does know and she feels energy and I’m a big believer of that."
Despite the bad blood between the former lovers, Kardashian said Thompson is a "great person" and still invited him to True's first birthday party. She says her reason for it was for the baby's sake, so True can look back on her first birthday photos and see both parents present for the big day.
Thompson and Kardashian's relationship was full of cheating scandals dating back to her pregnancy. In fact, just days before True was scheduled to arrive, video footage of the popular basketball star taking part in extra-marital activities with an unknown woman emerged online. That same woman was found leaving his hotel room later that night. This revelation caused a lot of controversies online, which prompted entertainment journalists to dig up even more footage — this time dating back to October 2017. Thompson quickly went on the defense, saying he was set up, but the video evidence was hard to deny. More accusations followed.
The final nail in the coffin, however, came after he was caught cheating on Kylie Jenner's friend Jordyn Woods. While more drama followed, the two split for good shortly after.
According to TheStar, children of divorced caused by infidelity have it tougher than normal. Part of this is due to the normal behavior of both parents afterward. Normally, the one who was cheated on clings onto the children more while the unfaithful party initially distances themselves. It gets more complicated if the parent who stepped outside the relationship immediately moves in with the "other person".
It doesn't look like that last portion will be an issue with Kardashian and Thompson, however. With that in mind, we have to commend Khloé for putting her personal feelings about her ex aside for the best of her baby.
