KIM Kardashian revealed her sister Khloe is “embarrassed” to be back together with her cheating ex Tristan Thompson.
In a new Keeping Up With the Kardashians clip, the 40-year-old reality star gives the pro basketball player advice on how to move forward in his reconciled relationship with Khloe.

The 29-year-old tells her: “Some days are good, and some days, she gets a little frustrated by what’s going on with the media.”
Seeing his frustration over the situation, Kim lets Tristan know: “I don’t even think it’s to her anymore about getting over the past things that you guys have been through,
“I think it’s just mostly what other people are gonna think. I think she’s totally fine, otherwise she wouldn’t be hanging out with you 24/7.”

In 2018, it was revealed that Tristan was unfaithful to Khloe while she was pregnant with their daughter, True.
A short while later, in February 2019, Kylie Jenner’s longtime best friend Jordyn admitted to kissing Tristan after a boozy night out, and Khlo and her baby daddy split, and Kylie ended her friendship with Jordyn.
The pair started to grow closer again in early 2020 when the pandemic hit and they began living together whiling co-parenting their toddler.
After months of it, they slowly decided to give their relationship another try and buy a new home together and are even thinking about getting married and having another kid soon.

“You’re never gonna get to the finish line if you’re trying to always please the masses,” he says. “You just gotta live for yourself.”
The pro athlete adds, referencing Kim’s estranged husband Kanye West: “Like Ye, he don’t give a damn if you like him or not.
“But guess what, he’s happy and he’s gonna do it his way and you’re gonna like him or not. That’s why I respect him.

“You’re gonna ride this journey the way you want to and it’s either people are gonna be with you or against you, but at least if you die, you’re going to die doing it your way…That’s my mentality. And she’s gotta understand it too.”
Kim’s main advice to Tristan is to be honest with Khloe about his feelings and have open communication.
The KKW Beauty founder says: ”Honestly, I just think that you should talk to her; that you should just tell her you don’t want to rush her process, but…that you don’t want to be this, like, kept secret because she is so embarrassed. Like, that makes you sad.”
That advice seems to have been coming in handy lately, as sources have claimed that the pair have been focusing on communication while Tristan’s playing basketball in Boston and Khloe’s living in LA.
The insider alleged: “Tristan is essentially going above and beyond to prove himself to Khloe with regards to any trust issues.
“He is super obsessive when it comes to communicating with her and True. He sends flowers, balloons, incessant text messages, and FaceTimes and calls.”
Season 20 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians premieres on E! on March 19.
