Tristan Thompson Seemingly Just Took Khloé Kardashian Drama A Step Further

Tristan Thompson shared a subtle message amid the drama with his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Khloe Kardashian. The pair — who started their romance in 2016 — have been through their fair share of relationship hurdles.

In September 2017, a source revealed to People that the couple were expecting their first child together. "Yes, Khloe and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled," the insider said. Kardashian confirmed the news months later, in a touching post shared on Instagram. However, months after Kardashian's post, TMZ published a video which showed Thompson kissing two unidentified women at a hookah lounge. Kardashian gave birth to their daughter, True Thompson, in March 2018 — amid a flurry of cheating allegations involving Thompson.

Despite the drama, Kardashian recently confirmed that the pair are set to welcome their second child together, via surrogate. Days later, Thompson was photographed holding hands with a mystery woman in Greece. Now, the NBA player — who seldom addresses public controversy — is seemingly speaking out about the scandal.

Tristan Thompson shares a message about independence

Tristan Thompson has shared a cryptic message on his social media accounts, which appears to reference his relationship with Khloe Kardashian. "1. Nothing is promised to you. 2. No one owes you anything. 3. You have all the responsibility in your life," read the quote Thompson posted to his Instagram Story (via Us Weekly). "Understand these three rules as early as possible and realize that independence is the way forward." 

Kardashian also shared an equally cryptic message, posting a lengthy note to her Instagram Story. "Be thankful for the difficult times," she wrote. "During those times you grow. Be thankful for your limitations. Because they give you opportunities for improvement."

Ultimately, it appears the exes have moved on from their romantic relationship. A source revealed to E! News on July 13, that the pair "have not spoken outside of co-parenting matters." Kardashian seemingly confirmed the split herself, after she "liked" a post on Instagram which showed her ex in Greece with the unnamed woman.

Khloé Kardashian's ex weighed in on her second child with Tristan Thompson

Khloé Kardashian's former partner has spoken out with his take on her relationship with Tristan Thompson. Kardashian, who shares daughter True with Thompson, confirmed on July 13 that they were set to welcome their second baby via surrogate. "We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November," a representative told People on Kardashian's behalf. They added, "Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We'd like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe can focus on her family."

Lamar Odom, who was previously married to Kardashian for four years before their separation, per The U.S. Sun, talked to Page Six about this update in a video interview. When asked what his thoughts are on Kardashian having a second child with Thompson, Odom first asked if Kardashian and Thompson are together as a couple, to which the Page Six reporter said they didn't believe so. "She could have hollered at me for that," Odom said, laughing in response to this news. Although they are no longer together, Kardashian and Thompson are focused on moving forward as devoted co-parents in their family unit.

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are dedicated to being 'healthy and happy co-parents'

Following Tristan Thompson's recent post referencing independence, he and Khloé Kardashian are prioritizing their co-parenting roles. A source close to Kardashian revealed to HollywoodLife that Thompson has "finally given up" on getting back together with Kardashian and the two are "100% done for good." "All [Kardashian] wants is for them to be healthy and happy co-parents, that's why she's forgiven him and wants her family to forgive him too," the source explained. "She doesn't see the point in hanging on to the negativity and anger but that doesn't mean she's letting what he did slide." The source added that Kardashian "will always love Tristan" but "is no longer in love with him" following his past cheating.

One of Kardashian's latest posts on social media shows that her focus is on motherhood, as she recently shared photos of her first child with Thompson, True. In the Instagram images, True can be seen sitting on a private jet, grinning, and eating potato chips next to some stuffed animals. "My little lady," Kardashian captioned the post. As the two exes near the welcome of their next child via surrogacy, these recent updates appear to show that they're approaching their new chapter as co-parents of two on a positive note.
