Kim Kardashian doesn’t want to put up with Tristan Thompson’s nonsense anymore. On the Season 1 finale of The Kardashians, Kim said she was “exhausted” from taking the high road with her sister Khloé’s ex-boyfriend after his third cheating scandal. In December 2021, court papers revealed that Tristan admitted to having sex with Maralee Nichols in March 2021, while he was dating Khloé, in response to Nichols’ paternity lawsuit, before DNA test results confirmed he did father her child.
During the previous episode, Kim was the first family member to find out about the lawsuit, which is how she discovered Tristan’s statement. She immediately called a family meeting to talk through the situation, which Khloé decided to skip. However, Kim, Kourtney, and their mom Kris Jenner didn’t hold back. “I prefer to take the high road and be a good person, and who we are is we’re people who would actually get Tristan help,” Kourtney said.
Kim looked straight into the cameras and gave a warning to Tristan. “And if you don’t think I screenshot every single f*cking thing...” she said, to which Kris responded, “That’s my girl.”
However, Kim admitted that she’d be “lying” if she said she wasn’t tempted to get revenge on him. “I’m exhausted of taking the high road,” she said. “I’m on my zone where if you bring bad energy into my life, a boundary goes up. Half of me just wants to put it on blast.” Then, Kim looked straight into the cameras and gave a warning to Tristan and anyone else who crossed her. “And if you don’t think I screenshot every single f*cking thing...” she said, to which Kris responded with an approving, “That’s my girl.”
While they may be torn on how to approach Tristan, they all share the same concern for Khloé and frustration with how many chances they’ve given him. “The lack of honesty is what does it for me,” Kourtney said, with Kris pointing out that Tristan “has a pattern of bad behavior” and lied to Khloé about his cheating since June. “This is not something that can be undone,” she declared. “If he’s in this pattern, why does she just have to keep suffering? That’s what breaks my heart.”
Despite her temptations, Kim still agreed that the best road to take was the high road. “From the wise words of the great Michelle Obama, when they go low, you go high,” she said. “And that’s what we always do.”
