While Kim might be talking about the Khloé/Tristan scandal, the couple themselves have remained silent.
Their family drama imploded back in April when allegations surfaced that Thompson, 27, cheated on Khloé, 33, throughout her pregnancy. The news broke just days before Khloé gave birth to their baby girl, True Thompson, on April 12.
“Poor Khloé,” Kim said weeks later during appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “Like, I don’t even know how to describe it besides it’s just so f—ed up.”
“We really were rooting for Khloé. And we still are,” she added. “She’s so strong and she’s doing the best that she can. It’s a really sad situation, all over.”

Her words didn’t sit well with Thompson. On Live with Kelly and Ryan Friday, Kim says that the Cleveland Cavaliers forward was angry at her and blocked her on social media.
“The last time on went on TV and I answered some questions about her and I got blocked on social media,” Kim said, “And not from Khloé.”
As for how Khloé is now, Kim said she’s focusing on motherhood. “Khloé is doing, honestly, she’s so focused on her baby,” Kim says. “The baby is gorgeous. She’s so happy.”
