Khloé Kardashian Steps Out with Malika Haqq at First Public Event Since Cheating Scandal Broke
The famous best friends were photographed walking hand-in-hand entering the event in Los Angeles Wednesday night
Just two days after it was revealed that Kardashian’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson allegedly cheated on her with little sister Kylie Jenner‘s best gal pal Jordyn Woods, the Revenge Body star, 34, and Haqq, 35, stepped out in Los Angeles to attend the opening of PrettyLittleThing’s new store.
For their outing Wednesday, which marks Kardashian’s first public event since news of the scandal broke, the pair wore matching outfits — black PrettyLittleThing sweaters paired with leather pants and pointed toe heels.
Kardashian opted for a wet hair look while Haqq styled her ombre tresses in loose waves.
Kardashian, who arrived at around 7:20 p.m., appeared to be in good spirits despite the drama of the past few days. She beamed as she walked into the clothing label’s new West Hollywood headquarters hand-in-hand with her friend after posing for photos on the carpet.
All the while the Keeping Up with the Kardashians cameras were there to capture her return to the spotlight.
Kardashian also posed for photos with Ashley Graham, who was co-hosting the event, and did the honor of cutting the ribbon.
The duo left shortly after, but not without stopping to take more photos.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star cracked a smile as she arrived in an all-white ensemble which she accessorized with giant silver hoop earrings and a pair of aviator sunglasses.
Although without Haqq on that occasion, the ATL star has proven she’s Kardashian’s ride or die by publicly slamming Woods, 21, on social media.
On Tuesday, Haqq left a fiery comment on a post that made fun of the alleged scandal.
The post, which showed 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.
Kardashian’s best friend quoted Chris Brown in his track “Loyal” to seemingly taking a jab at Woods.
Haqq also responded to Hollywood Unlocked’s Instagram post — about her best friend’s reported split from Thompson, 27, and cheating with Woods by writing, “STRONG FACTS.”
Kardashian later wrote eight mouth talking emojis in the post’s comment section.
On Tuesday, TMZ and Hollywood Unlocked reported that Kardashian and the Cleveland Cavaliers player split after he was unfaithful to her with Woods, who is also a member of the Good American squad, representing Kardashian’s clothing brand.
Reps for Kardashian and Thompson have not returned PEOPLE’s requests for comment. Woods’ rep had no comment.
And while the alleged affair feels like a deep betrayal for Kardashian, the rest of the family is hurting as well.
