If you thought all the Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson drama was over after they split in February, think again. Early on Wednesday morning, June 12, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star posted a series of Instagram Stories, clearing the air about her history with the NBA player. Kardashian explained how her relationship with Thompson began — at least from her perspective — after claims recently resurfaced that Thompson cheated on his pregnant ex-girlfriend with her. (Bustle reached out to Thompson's agent for comment on all of these claims, but did not receive an immediate response.)

Let's back up a bit: On June 7, Radar Online obtained court documents where Jordan Craig, Thompson's ex and the mother of his first child, reportedly claimed that Thompson lied and cheated on her while she was pregnant in 2016. In the court papers, Craig said, "Tristan insisted he would change for our family, and tried to get back together on numerous occasions." However, she reportedly saw paparazzi photos of him with a woman, who is heavily implied to be Kardashian; Craig said she previously confronted Thompson about that same woman and he denied knowing her. Per Radar Online, Craig claimed in the documents:

Craig was even reportedly ordered to bed rest at the time, since "this brought an enormous amount of negative, unwanted attention and stress into my life, and more critically, into my pregnancy."

Following Radar Online's report, there was an online outcry of people blaming Kardashian — with many saying that it was "karma" for how her own relationship with Thompson eventually played out.

However, this isn't the first time that Kardashian was accused of "stealing" Thompson from Craig. That notion has circulated ever since the first cheating scandal Kardashian faced with the NBA player in April 2018. People tried to say Kardashian somehow deserved that fate since, just like Craig, the reality star was pregnant when reports surfaced that Thompson had been unfaithful. (Thompson has never addressed any of the cheating claims, but Kardashian has spoken out about the situation online and on KUWTK.)

In her new Instagram posts, Kardashian wrote, "Im disappointed that I even feel the need to post this but... I need to say my truth. Take it as you will." Then, she began to outline her side of the story:

Kardashian's post claimed of Thompson:

She then concluded her message with an apology for "any pain" caused by the whole situation. Kardashian said:

While Craig has yet to address Kardashian's latest posts, she previously suggested she didn't harbor any ill-will towards her. Back in April 2018 when the rumors first surfaced that Thompson cheated on Kardashian, his ex posted an Instagram Story believed to be about the situation. Craig wrote at the time:

As fans know, while Kardashian and Thompson attempted to make things work following the birth of their daughter and that initial scandal, they split for good in February 2019 after reports claimed that Thompson hooked up with Jordyn Woods, the longtime best friend of Kardashian's younger sister Kylie Jenner. (Woods denied being "intimate" with Thompson in an interview on Red Table Talk, while Thompson never responded to the accusations.)

All in all, it's a very complicated situation, but Kardashian and Craig have both tried sharing their sides of the story. It's unclear when or if Thompson will do the same.
