In the midst of the latest cheating scandal, Khloe Kardashian has plenty of support. A few days ago, after much speculation, Tristan Thompson was forced to admit that he was the father of Maralee Nichol’s child. Maralee had previously claimed that her pregnancy was the result of a short-lived relationship with Tristan. Said Maralee, “Tristan and I communicated daily and talked on the phone. We would see each other several times a month.” Of course, this was unbeknownst to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who was still dating Tristan at the time. Now that paternity has been established, Maralee is suing for child support.
In the aftermath, Tristan had no choice but to come clean. He posted a statement to his Instagram stories, confirming the paternity results. It also included an apology to Khloe, who is the mother to his child, True Thompson.
His statement read, “Khloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
Khloe’s sister Kourtney Kardashian and fiancé Travis Barker sent flowers, which Khloe posted a picture of in her Instagram stories. She wrote, “My cuties @travisbarker & @kourtneykardash. I love you.”
Despite her horrible taste in men, Khloe seems to be a loyal friend and partner. So much so that ex-husband Lamar Odom even expressed his support for her. In a screenshot captured by Comments By Celebs on Instagram, Lamar revealed that he wanted to reconnect with Khloe. His comment read, “I truly wish nothing but the best for her and I’m hoping we can reconnect and talk one day as friends she is a good person and deserves the world.”

Of course, Khloe and Lamar have their own difficult past. The couple married in 2009 and after years of Lamar’s alleged addiction issues and cheating, the couple finalized their divorce in 2015. But despite how he treated her, Khloe had previously put the divorce on hold when Lamar almost died from an overdose. She was by his side until his health improved.
Since their divorce, Lamar has always spoken highly of Khloe. In May of this past year he said, “Unfortunately, you know, due to my behavior and some bad decisions, we don’t really talk any longer. I miss their family tremendously. We have to live with the decisions that we make and then, hopefully in time people heal and [will] be able to forgive me.”
