The Khloe Kardashian Tristan Thompson scandal has rocked the world, and seems to get crazier and crazier as more information is leaked. In fact, the news is so unbelievable, that some are saying that perhaps it’s not real. Some are speculating that perhaps it was Kris Jenner who orchestrated the whole thing— all in the name of good reality TV.
Reality show. The Kardashians essentially rose to the public eye thanks to their reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The Kardashians are said to be filming their 15th season— which may contain an episode dedicated to Khloe giving birth, and follows the cheating scandal.
Theory. Either the Kardashians have really good timing, or Kris Jenner has a powerful way of molding their lives around all the drama that goes on. The conspiracy theory is that Khloe knew about the cheating all along, but waited until they were filming to release the videos of Tristan getting caught red-handed.
Rumors. It’s true that celebs have done crazier things, and often times these theories prove to be true. After all, we were all right about Kylie Jenner being pregnant— so why couldn’t these rumors be true?
Defense. As the rumors circulated, those close to the Kardashian clan have defended them, calling the rumors nothing more than that. According to Buzzfeed, Lisa Stanley, a friend of the family took to Australian radio station KIIS 101.1 to clear the air.
Line. “That is such horse sh*t. Even Kris has her line she draws in the sand. And by the way, she’s not gonna plan something against her child, who’s not only been through hell and back with Lamar Odom—that cheating scumbag—but now she’s dealing with this guy,” said Stanley, as reproved by W Magazine.
News. Stanley went on to explain that when it comes to some big news in the family, they always work together to figure out what they want to do about it. Kris always makes sure that everyone is in the loop before going public with something.
Damage control. “They have a meeting. No matter where everyone is, they’re on a phone, whether it’s FaceTime or on [the] phone. Kris leads the meeting and they do damage control and decide how they’re gonna handle it,” said Stanley, as reported by W Magazine.
Quiet. In this instance, Stanley says the family agreed to stay hush about the incident for the sake of Khloe, who recently welcomed her first child. “In this case, it was obvious: Khloé is definitely not gonna say anything, [since] she’s about to give birth to a child,” continued Stanley.
Pact. According to Buzzfeed, the family respects one another’s desire to stay quiet about things they don’t want make private. Kim told Ellen Degeneres that the sisters all have an unspoken promise to not speak about each other’s lives.
Threats. “When there are lots of rumours, we have these family group chats and we threaten each other’s lives if we speak for the other one,” Kim told Ellen.
Social media. The family confirmed that Khloe had given birth on social media, with Kris and Kylie posting videos to announce the birth. “Kongrats, Khloé! It’s a girl!” Kylie wrote in an Instagram caption of a pink photo dedicated to the older sister.
Happy. “I’m so happy for you! Your baby girl is so beautiful! You are so strong, you made that look so easy! I can’t wait for our baby girls to grow up as best friends the way we are! I’m so happy I was able to return the favor of holding your leg while you pushed LOL,” Kim wrote in another Tweet.
No new information. Khloe has yet to reveal a photo or video of her daughter, nor has her name been released. She did previously say that she wanted to continue with the tradition of naming her a name that started with the letter K.
Forgiven. It was also reported that Tristan was allowed in the delivery room during the birth, as Khloe decided she wanted to be the bigger person when it came to the scandal. Sources say she has forgiven Tristan for the rumors.
Photo. Whether or not the rumors are true, we can only hope that Khloe and her new baby are doing well. For now, we will patiently await the day that she finally decides to bless us with a photo of the newest member of the Kardashian family.
