Tristan Thompson He was finally ready to take responsibility for the role he played in his relationship with him Jordyn Woods.
During a new episode of Kardashianswhich began airing on Thursday, November 16, Tristan, 32, said Chloe Kardashian He had great remorse for his past betrayal. More specifically, the athlete had time to reflect on how his dating with Jordyn, 26, affected not only Khloe, 39, but her family as well.
“If someone told me, would you believe it Kaylee [Jenner] Missing Jordyn? Maybe I’ll say yes. And I feel bad about that. “Especially since I’m the oldest,” he said. “I should have handled it differently. I should have handled it more as an older person. As a wiser person.” [person]”.
Tristan admitted it took some time before he realized his mistakes, adding: “Sometimes for men, they don’t realize it until they’re 40 or 50, when the train has already set off. I hope mine hasn’t left.”
The NBA player began dating Khloe in 2016, and they announced one year later that they were expanding their family. Days before the arrival of their daughter True in 2018, Tristan cheated on his then-pregnant girlfriend with multiple women.
After initially staying together, Khloe and Tristan split in February 2019 when Kylie’s ex-boyfriend kissed Jordyn. (Jordyn was 21 and Tristan was 28 at the time.)
Us Weekly It was confirmed in August 2020 that Khloe and Tristan were giving their romance another chance. Less than a year later, they broke up again. The couple briefly reconciled in late 2021 before calling it quits for good.
News broke in December 2021 that a lawsuit had been filed against the athlete Maralee Nichols To support the child. One month later, Tristan admitted he was the father of the fitness model’s son, Theo, after requesting a genetic test. It was later revealed that Khloe and Tristan’s surrogate were pregnant at the same time, and gave birth to their son Tatum in the summer of 2022.
In the wake of Tristan’s relationship with Jordyn, Kylie, 26, broke up with her then-best friend.
The former friends reunited on multiple occasions earlier this summer. Before Jordyn and Kylie met publicly, Tristan sat down with Khloe’s younger sister to finally address the drama.
“It really bothers me because we had a drug relationship like that. But everyone was affected differently. I was affected the most by the situation,” he told Kylie on Thursday’s episode. “You lost Jordyn who was a big part of your life. I know how much she meant to your life and your connections. You were two peas in a pod, so the fact that I put myself in the situation wasn’t right and wasn’t smart.
Tristan continued: “I want to say I’m sorry. I feel bad about that. …The fact that I came with my own bad decisions and being a young and stupid fool, I wanted to say I was sorry again for that.
Kylie, who accepted the apology, said she had changed the situation for the better.
“I think I was so dependent on Jordyn that I couldn’t imagine my life without her. We probably would still have lived together. She needed to grow without me and I needed to grow without her,” she added. “Jordyn and I are great. We’re still talking and catching up. “We’re good.”
Tristan then asked Kylie to “pass” his apology to Jordyn as well before he hit the next stop on his apology tour. His trip to Kourtney KardashianTristan’s house started off a little awkward when Tristan met his 11-year-old daughter, Penelope. (Kourtney, 44, revealed in an episode that aired earlier this month that her hatred for Tristan affected her daughter.)
After sitting down with Kourtney, Tristan tried to explain what led to his cheating
“I was cheating for the sake of doing something or for the sake of a feeling. But it was also because I didn’t know how to really love. That’s the way I was raised,” he noted. “Through therapy, I realized my childhood, and I saw how my father treated my mother. As a child “When you see that, the trauma that you can’t protect your mother because you’re so young, you numb your feelings. It’s my defense mechanism.”
Tristan went on to share how therapy allowed him to address his mistakes. He continued, “I never understood how to feel pain or emotions because the most important person in my life — even if I was treated terribly — was always happy.” “I’ve never seen a man treat a woman so well. I’ve never seen a man not cheat on a woman. I’ve never seen a good husband.”
In response, Kourtney explained that she is still upset with Tristan for hurting Khloe.
“I don’t think you deserve Chloe. The actions you took are not something you deserve,” the Poosh founder said before the “To Be Continued” message appeared at the end of the episode.
