People just want the facts when it comes to the latest Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson relationship drama.
Rumors that Tristan Thompson cheated on Khloe Kardashian feel all too familiar.
The Cleveland Cavaliers player has come under fire thanks to recent rumors online that he cheated on Kardashian with Kylie Jenner’s pal Jordyn Woods – a shocking story Kardashian and her friends have acknowledged on social media.
In November, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” aired the fallout of Thompson’s cheating, revealed around the time Kardashian went into labor in April.
Below is a timeline of the stars’ relationship, with its highs and lows.
2016: A romance blooms
After vacationing together in Mexico in September, Kardashian shared an Instagram post on Halloween, in which Thompson is tagged. The two, in costume, gazed deep into each other eyes in the photograph, and Kardashian used a simple red heart emoji for the caption.
Thompson spoke about how the two were set up on a blind date by basketball player Brandon Jennings during a February 2017 “Road Trippin’ with R.J. & Channing” podcast episode.
Thompson added that he believes it was “one of the best lobs (Jennings) has ever thrown in his career.”
April 2017: An article reveals Kardashian said she’d marry Thompson
Kardashian, who was married once before to basketball player Lamar Odom from 2009 to 2016, told Evening Standard Magazine she would be Thompson’s bride if he asked. She explained she’s “never been in this type of love.”
At the time, she also said she would “love to have a family” and that she and Thompson had discussed it.
“He (already) is a father, and I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father,” she said. “I definitely want to be a mom. But I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, ‘the clock is ticking.’ I feel in my soul it will happen.”
December 2017: Kardashian reveals her pregnancy
Kardashian confirmed the speculation that she and Thompson were expecting in a Dec. 20 Instagram post of her growing belly cradled by their hands.
“My greatest dream realized!” Kardashian wrote in the caption of the post. She also gave her man a special shout-out.
“Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen!” she wrote. “Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you’ve been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!”
April 2018: True is born amid controversy

In the teaser clip for the Nov. 4 episode, filmed in April, Kim Kardashian West tells producers: “There’s a video of Tristan making out with a girl last night. Khloe’s gonna die. She’s literally going to go into labor over this.”
Khloe took to social media the day of broadcast to say she was preparing herself for the show. She wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post: “Tonight’s episode is an uncomfortable and super emotional one for me, but when we signed up for this show over a decade ago, we signed up for a reality show, which meant showing you guys inside our lives, the good, the bad and the ugly.”
She also expressed her emotions on Twitter as the show aired. “Oh my God my heart is racing! So crazy how emotions never die! You may forgive but forgetting is not possible #KUWTK”
