People often believe what they want to believe, and that certainly seems to be the case with Khloe Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend and baby daddy, Tristan Thompson. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star famously dated the pro basketball player while his ex-girlfriend was pregnant, and she was hit with choruses of "karma!" when he cheated on her when she was pregnant with their daughter. 

  • Khloe and Tristan went public with their relationship during the summer of 2016.

    Tristan's ex, Jordan Craig, gave birth to their son Prince in December 2016. Craig has largely remained mum about the timeline details, but Radar Online reported last week that she has finally broken her silence about it. The site obtained court documents filed by Craig in an effort to receive child support, and her version of the truth is that Tristan straight up cheated on her. 

    She wrote, "Tristan insisted he would change for our family, and tried to get back together on numerous occasions," and she claimed that she moved in with him in LA that summer, before his "infidelities" and "partying" led her to move in with her mom. When Khloe and Tristan went public in August, she claims the stress was so much that her obstetrician ordered her to be on bed rest.

  • Khloe was apparently unaware that Tristan was trying to get back together with his pregnant ex while pursuing her. 

    The Good American creator took to her Instagram story this week to clear the air about how she and Tristan initially got together. "He pleaded with me that the relationship was over before we met," she shared, explaining that he offered ample "proof" that the relationship was over. 

  • She also offered an apology for causing any pain by dating Tristan, and empathized with women who have gone through this.

    Of course she later went through it herself, when Tristan cheated on her while she was pregnant with True. Just two days before she went into labor in April 2018, multiple photos and videos were released of Tristan getting frisky with multiple women after Khloe got pregnant. He was even seen entering a hotel in the wee hours of the morning with one of them, the weekend before Khloe gave birth.

    Khloe decided to forgive him to try and be a family for her daughter's sake, but finally kicked him to the curb in February, when he was caught making out with her sister Kylie Jenner's best friend, Jordyn Woods, at a house party.

  • Honestly, it really does sound like Khloe was in the dark about Tristan's real relationship timeline.

    Say what you want about getting involved with a man whose ex is pregnant, but it sounds as if Khloe had every reason to believe it was 100 percent over between Tristan and Jordan by the time she started dating him. At worst, she's only guilting of falling in love with and believing a liar.

    We're just glad that Khloe finally called it quits on this guy, and is moving on with her sweet baby girl, True.
