Khloé Kardashian Steps Out in Las Vegas with BFFs Malika and Khadijah After Tristan Thompson Drama
The group celebrated at the Hakkasan nightclub in Las Vegas
Khloé Kardashian enjoyed a quick getaway to Las Vegas to celebrate the birthday of two of her closest friends, Malika Haqq and Khadijah Haqq McCray.
The twin sisters, who turned 36 on Sunday, recruited their pals for a trip to Sin City.
For a night out, Kardashian wore a body-hugging, light pink fishnet one-piece, which she accessorized with a pink purse tied around her waist.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 34, is dealing with the fallout of Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal, but that didn’t stop her from going all out to help her pals ring in 36.
Kardashian shared a batch of photos featuring the three friends to her Instagram Story, and also posted video of the birthday crew boarding a private jet to take them to their destination.
The group also enjoyed birthday-themed snacks, like donuts spelling out the girls’ names, champagne and a light pink cake topped with macarons and raspberries.
The cake featured the logo of the nightclub Hakkasan Las Vegas, and according to McCray’s Instagram Story, the group spent the night partying at the club.
“Happy birthday @malika and @foreverkhadijah !!” Kardashian wrote in a message posted to her Instagram Story. “You ladies are so beyond special!! I thank God for our friendship daily! I hope you are blessed with every beautiful birthday to be better than the one before!! I love you both madly! We are going to have FUN tonight!”
The night out comes days after Kardashian alluded to heartbreak with a pair of inspirational quotes shared via her Instagram Story.
“What if I told you that every single thing that has happened to you has happened exactly as it was meant to?” one passage read Thursday. “I know there are cracks in your spirit from losses too great to name, and hurts from people who should have kept you safe. But those cracks created a warrior.”
The next quote said, in part, “Hearts like ours are special. They should be treasured, not broken.”
Two days earlier, Thompson, 27, was spotted in New York City with 28-year-old model Karizma Ramirez.
Both Haqq and McCray have stuck by Kardashian’s side after Thompson allegedly hooked up with Jordyn Woods, the 21-year-old best friend of Kardashian’s sister Kylie Jenner.
Haqq appeared to take a jab at Woods on Feb. 19, leaving a fiery comment on an Instagram post making fun of the alleged scandal.
The post, which showed Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi excitedly saying bye while seated in a high chair, was captioned “Stormi in Calabasas waiting for Jordyn to pack her s— and get out of Kylie’s house like…”
“These h— ain’t loyal,” Haqq wrote in a since-deleted comment captured by Instagram account Comments by Celebs.

“I’ve been wrong before and I’ll be wrong again but I damn sure wouldn’t make excuses (alcohol) in an interview to gain self pity and save face. No one in my life would condone that coward like behavior,” she wrote on Instagram in response to a fan who said that they admired her continued support of Kardashian.
McCray, meanwhile, backed Kardashian after she initially blamed Woods for breaking up her family with Thompson and then backtracked, placing full blame on the NBA player.
“I’m proud of you publicly living out your nightmares while complete strangers judge, dehumanize, and ridicule you,” she wrote on Twitter. “No one is perfect and we all make mistakes. But we can show them better than we could ever tell them. I love you.”
Kardashian blasted the model on Twitter as her Red Table Talk episode aired on March 1, claiming she was untruthful during the interview, in which Woods insisted she was “not the reason Tristan and Khloe aren’t together.”
“Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!” Kardashian tweeted.
However, the Good American co-founder had a change of heart the following day, saying that the blame actually lies with Thompson.
“This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a roller coaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have,” she wrote. “Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me, wasn’t such a shock as the first time.”
“What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault,” she added in a follow-up tweet about Woods.
