- Kim Kardashian West came to Khloe’s defence, saying the paid appearance was booked before any of the news hit and that Khloe was fulfilling her commitment.
Kim Kardashian West defended her sister Khloe Kardashian after a blogger questioned a public appearance Khloe made as reports that Tristan Thompson had cheated on her spread.
Kim took to Twitter with a response to 2cool2blog’s comment on a TMZ video showing Khloe posing for photographers at an event for fashion retailer Pretty Little Thing in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
2cool2blog wrote, “If someone cheats on you publicly. Y’all going outside the next day?”
In response, Kim tweeted that Khloe had agreed to appear at the event before the cheating reports occurred and she was fulfilling her commitment.
“Would you prefer she lose the [money] too? A single mum has to work too boo! This was a professional commitment planned far in advance,” Kim responded, “and you better believe she is not waiting on anyone to pay her bills or provide for her daughter.”

News of the apparent cheating by Thompson broke Tuesday after the NBA player and model Jordyn Woods, Kylie Jenner’s live-in best friend, were spotted kissing at a party Sunday by anonymous TMZ sources and a contributor to Hollywood Unlocked.
The veracity of the reports was seemingly confirmed as Khloe’s close friends began commenting on the Hollywood Unlocked post. Malika Haqq, who fans would recognise by her many appearances on E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians, wrote, “STRONG FACTS.” That was followed by more comments and likes by people close to the Kardashian family, including publicist Tracy Romulus and friend Larsa Pippen. Khloe herself commented with yelling emojis.
In his own defence, Thompson posted and quickly deleted a tweet that read, “FAKE NEWS.”
Representatives for Khloe, Thompson, and Woods didn’t immediately respond to INSIDER’s requests for comment.
This isn’t the first time Thompson has been accused of cheating. While Khloe was preparing to give birth to their baby girl, True, in Cleveland in April 2018, Thompson was hit with multiple cheating allegations. The Kardashians later confirmed these reports.
