The entire Kardashian / Jenner clan had reservations about Khloe dating Tristan Thompson, reports PEOPLE.
It was reported Wednesday that the famous family advised Khloe not to pursue Thompson because of character concerns — and his career as an professional athlete didn’t help.
“When Khloé first started dating Tristan, her family questioned if it was a good idea. There were several concerns, including that he is another basketball player and also that his ex was pregnant,” a source told PEOPLE. “It took a while for the family to accept Tristan. They were worried that Khloé would end up heartbroken.”
Thompson was dating Jordyn Craig before he began a courtship with Khloe. It was believed that Thompson abandoned Craig, who was six months pregnant at time, for the reality star.
The insider added, “Being on the road as an athlete, you face many temptations. But Tristan always assured Khloé’s family that he was totally committed to Khloé. Khloé thinks the world of Tristan.”
The family is said to be “heartbroken” by what has transpired this past weekend. Khloe is said to be “devastated” and was blindsided by Thompson’s infidelities.
Per Page Six, Kardashian “was devastated when she saw the pictures of Tristan with that girl, she went absolutely ballistic at him. She is not only hurt, she is humiliated and worried for their child. How could he do this, and so publicly, when their baby daughter could arrive within a week?”
Thompson was captured on video kissing a woman named Lani Blair while at a New York City lounge on Saturday. A woman who witnessed the smooch recounted the event to Mail Online.
“I was there and he was on the table right next to us with a group of friends and some girl who he was obviously making out with all night,” the woman told Mail Online in an exclusive interview. “They were holding each other and it was so obvious. They were there when I got there and they were part of a big group of friends.”
The party didn’t end there but continued during the duration of the entire weekend, including a private dinner at SoHo House, according to Page Six.
Thompson — who was in town with Cleveland Cavaliers to take on the New York Knicks — spent additional time with Blair, including an overnight stay at the Four Seasons. Paparazzi captured the two entering the luxury hotel Saturday evening. More paparazzi spotted Blair exiting the hotel late Sunday carrying an overnight Louis Vuitton bag.
Blair is an Instagram model and has since placed her profile on private. According to a Model Mayhem profile, Blair hails from the Bronx and is of Hispanic descent. The 28-year-old beauty posts sexy photos of herself on the social media platform.
Speaking of Instagram, the entire Kardashian family has unfollowed Thompson on the photo-sharing app.
Khloe is currently holed up in Cleveland awaiting the birth of the couple’s daughter. Thompson is also back in the Midwestern city as the Cavs take on the Knicks tonight.
