Khloé Kardashian is trying to make things right after her ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson's, ex-girlfriend, Jordan Craig, accused the international celebrity of being the "other woman" during Thompson and Craig's relationship.
Craig, who shares a two-year-old son named Prince with Thompson, claims that the NBA star was "desperate" to start a family after two years of dating, and “encouraged [Craig] to exhaust every avenue we possibly could to start [their] family.” A month after she found out she was pregnant on April 16, 2016, Craig discovered that Thompson was cheating on her. She moved away from Cleveland, where they lived, and back to Los Angeles where she's from.
“Tristan insisted he would change for our family, and tried to get back together on numerous occasions,” Craig said in the court papers.
He didn't change, though, and Craig then saw paparazzi photos of Thompson and "one of the women I previously confronted him about, and whom Tristan had denied even knowing.” Then, Kardashian and Thompson were linked, and that's when things really took a turn.
“Their relationship went viral and everything took a turn for the worst,” Craig recalled. “Every day several articles were published worldwide mocking my new unfortunate reality and my pregnancy would now become one of the most popular gossip headlines due to the woman Tristan was now publicly dating during my pregnancy.”
Craig also claims that the unwanted stress put her pregnancy at risk.
“This brought an enormous amount of negative, unwanted attention and stress into my life, and more critically, into my pregnancy,” she said. “My obstetrician ordered me to be on bed rest due to high levels of stress that eventually caused me to have serious pregnancy complications.”
Craig and Thompson's son was born healthy in December of 2016. Those who follow the Kardashians (and even those who don't), will know that Kardashian was also cheated on by Thompson just days before giving birth to their daughter. Then, even though they tried to make things work, Thompson was caught hooking up with Jordyn Woods, the best friend of Kardashian's sister Kylie Jenner.
Because of how big the Thompson-Woods cheating scandal was, and how vocal Kardashian was about Woods being a home wrecker, she obviously took some heat when Craig called her out for essentially doing the same thing to hers and Thompson's family. However, Kardashian responded to these claims on Instagram, and gave a more in-depth look at how it went down.
MY TRUTH IS:
I met Tristan because HE CHOSE to go on a blind date with me. A mutual friend set us up.
After going on some dates, Tristan told me that he had an ex that was pregnant. Obviously I was reluctant about continuing to date or start a relationship.
He pleaded with me that the relationship was over long before we met. He had me talk with his most inner circle. He showed me physical proof (correspondence between the two) and had me on calls with his lawyers to prove his point. His best friends, business associates and even his own mother told me, him and his ex were broken up before we met.
This is my truth! The truth that I believed and trusted. If for any reason this is NOT in fact the truth, I am so completely and utterly sorry that TRISTAN and his inner circle would like on something like this.
I pray my truth is in-fact that. Lord knows I pray but now, I really don't know what to believe.
Truthfully, from the deepest parts of my soul I am sorry. I'm sorry for any pain that has been created either way. No woman deserves to go through anything like this.
This is MY TRUTH
It's not the first time Kardashian has spoken about these rumors. A fan accused Thompson of leaving his pregnant girlfriend to be with Kardashian on the reality star's Instagram page, then said Kardashian is "scared of being alone and saddled with a baby." The mom-of-one responded, saying that wasn't the case.
In all honesty I completely thrive when I am alone. I reflect, grow, excel...I absolutely love it! Being alone is definitely not an issue for me personally. And if he does it again, then I will deal with that but those are my choices. Right or wrong they are mine. I appreciate the support, unsolicited opinions and love I get from you all. I'm not excusing anyones behavior. I simply did what I felt was right for me in that moment. You are also unaware of the work we do behind the scenes to better ourselves. PS he never left ANYONE for me. I have said this before But as I have learned the truth isn't as exciting as a lie. So the lie is what gets traction. The truth seems to get buried and ignored. Either way, it's all love and peace over here.
The thing about these types of situations is that no one really know THE truth, they just know THEIR VERSION of it. If you ask me, Thompson is the one to blame in all this. He seems to be the root of all the issues.
