Just when we thought Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s relationship couldn’t get any more chaotic and heartbreaking, we’re left reeling once again.
For those not fully versed in the ongoing drama, Khloé and Tristan have been on and off since 2016, and he was embroiled in cheating scandals in 2018 and 2019.
The couple apparently split for good in 2021 after Tristan was publicly exposed once again, this time for having an affair with a woman named Maralee Nichols, whom he got pregnant in March of that same year.
But BuzzFeed News can now exclusively reveal that Khloé accepted a proposal from Tristan in February 2021, just a month before he got Maralee pregnant, and they were still engaged when their paternity scandal broke.
In the most recent episode of The Kardashians, the topic of Tristan’s marriage proposal came up during a conversation between Kim and Khloé. This was filmed between January and February of this year, about a month after their final breakup following the news that she had had a child outside of their relationship.
During the conversation, Kim says that the breakup wasn’t necessarily such a bad thing, hinting that Khloé may have always known that Tristan would end up humiliating her.
“I mean, the fact that he proposed to you and you never told us…” Kim tells Khloé casually.
In her confessional, Kim elaborates, explaining that Tristan had called her the year before to tell her that he planned to propose on Valentine’s Day. However, after not hearing from Khloé on the big day, she followed up with Tristan, who told her that she had actually asked him the question two months earlier.
“I was like, ‘Hey, I’ve never heard from Khloé…did you propose?’” Kim recalls of their conversation. “And he was like, ‘Oh yeah, I did it in December.’”
Khloé goes on to explain that she turned down the proposal and kept the whole thing a secret because she wasn’t comfortable with the state of the relationship, or telling her family news she wasn’t “proud” or “excited” about. .
“I said, ‘I need to make sure this is a totally different relationship, because I want to be proud to say I’m engaged to someone!’” she says. “And that’s why I said, ‘You know, I don’t feel comfortable accepting this right now, because I’m not excited to tell my family.’”
Kim’s comments initially suggested that Tristan had proposed to her in December 2020. However, sources with knowledge of the situation told BuzzFeed News that he actually first proposed to Khloé in December 2019 when they weren’t officially. together.
Though Khloé turned him down at the time, they brought up the subject of an engagement again in February 2021, and this time she accepted the proposal. The couple never officially announced the news, but the source added that they remained engaged until Tristan’s paternity scandal broke 10 months later.
However, the actual complexities of this timeline are even more complicated. After rekindling their romance during lockdown, Khloé and Tristan decided to embark on a surrogacy journey to have a second baby together in October 2020.
But legal documents related to Tristan’s paternity suit revealed that he met Maralee two months after this surrogacy journey began. According to the files, the couple saw each other “sporadically” for several months thereafter, in a relationship that he repeatedly said was “based only on sex.”
On March 13, 2021, Khloé threw Tristan a lavish 30th birthday party before going public with their rekindled relationship in a gushing Instagram post. We later find out that Tristan and Maralee’s baby was conceived that same night.
Khloe found out that Tristan had fathered another child out of the relationship along with the rest of the world after legal documents were leaked online, something she has since described as “offensive.”
And to make matters worse, we learned in last week’s episode of The Kardashians that despite learning of Maralee’s pregnancy in July 2021, Tristan continued to encourage Khloé to go ahead with her surrogacy plan. In fact, he even convinced her to complete the embryo transfer “by a certain date,” in other words, before her baby with Maralee was born.
As a result, Khloé and Tristan’s surrogate underwent an embryo transfer just days before news broke that she was expecting a baby with Maralee, leaving Khloé absolutely devastated.
Interestingly, both Kendall and Kris Jenner speculated in last week’s episode that this was Tristan’s latest effort to “trap” Khloe into marriage.
