A Comprehensive Timeline of Tristan Thompson and Khloé Kardashian’s Extremely Messy Cheating Scandal
Tristan Thompson and Khloé Kardashian are fully over thanks to the EXHAUSTING SAGA that was their cheating scandal(s), and honestly, it’s all very complicated and extra. What we have here, however, are alllllll the receipts, evidence, and tweets gathered in one convenient place for you to pore over. Warning: Not even Kris Jenner could come up with this kinda drama, so please read with a glass of wine in hand and some comfort cheese.
April 10, 2018
The person who filmed the clip is quoted as saying, “I was there and he was on the table right next to us with a group of friends and some girl who he was obviously making out with all night....They were holding each other and it was so obvious.” Oh, and apparently someone screamed “Where’s Khloé at?!” during the make-out session (wow, what a legend), and this tweet was posted:
Later in the day, April 10, 2018
Not to be outdone, TMZ claims Tristan took the woman in question back to his hotel and she “eventually left with a Louis Vuitton overnight bag.
April 11, 2018
The Kardashians rally around Khloé in Cleveland, and ET reports that “Kris has gathered the family,” who are tasked with keeping Khloé away from “any of the news right now.” Meanwhile, E! reports that “at this point in time, Khloé doesn’t want to speak with Tristan. And the family is keeping them apart until she goes into labor.”
Meanwhile, her BFF Malika’s twin sister Khadijah Haqq posts a pretty direct comment about Tristan on Instagram. And, uh, Khloé Likes it.
ALSO, Tristan’s ex Jordan Craig—whom he allegedly cheated on—hit up Instagram Stories and wrote this pointed musing: “If you respect yourself and you respect others, you would never make light of the misfortune of anyone nor would you feel indemnified when it comes at the expense of others.”
April 12, 2018
“I think that’s what Tristan has been telling her,” a source tells People. “‘Babe, you know how groupies are, you know how they try to hang on me and follow me around, and this isn’t what it looks like.’”
April 13, 2018
Sources say that Khloé has forgiven Tristan and is blaming his “groupies.” But meanwhile, The Daily Mail unearths yet more claims of Tristan’s alleged cheating—this time with a New York salesclerk named Tania, who he’s “been photographed with multiple times over the past five months” while she’s been “holed up in his hotel.”
April 23, 2018
It’s revealed by Us Weekly that Tristan cheated on Khloé by DMing other girls while she was pregnant. “Tristan slides into girls’ DMs,” a source says. “He messages girls that way, on Instagram, and then meets up with them. He likes exotic or non-American-looking girls with big butts.”
April 25, 2018
ye✔@kanyewest that's the last tweet of the day. I did that one for my god-brother Puff. Now ima go watch the Cavs.
Naturally, this upsets Kim, and a source tells Us Weekly that she “refused to give Kanye the attention he wanted from the post.” MEANWHILE, ET reports that Tristan cheated on Khloé the night before her baby shower. What a great dude!
\April 27, 2018
Kim Kardashian breaks her silence on the cheating scandal during an Ellenappearance, saying:
“We really were rooting for Khloé. And we still are. She’s so strong and she’s doing the best that she can. It’s a really sad situation, all over. I kind of made this rule with my brother—if there’s a baby involved, I’m going to keep it cute and keep it classy and not talk too bad. Well, I’m going to try not to say anything so negative because one day, True is going to see this and you know, it’s so messed up.”
May 4, 2018
Kris Jenner breaks her silence on the cheating scandal, holding back tears and telling Ellen that the allegations were “very unexpected” but that “Khloé is amazing! I’m so proud of that kid. I get choked up because she’s such a good mom and honestly I get so emotional.”
May 30, 2018
Khloé makes what appears to be her first pseudo-direct comment about the scandal on Twitter—by saltily responding to a fan questioning her for staying with Tristan.
Megan@MegsyM23 · May 30, 2018A year from now @khloekardashian will be over all of this and feeling salty for her super passive IG posts. She’s just in the stage of “but I love him!” Until then let her pretend he’s changed and they’ll be a happy family. #WednesdayWisdom
Khloé✔@khloekardashianBabe that’s not wisdom at all because you’re assuming you know who I’m talking about and you’re assuming you know my feelings. Assuming anything is anything but wisdom 16.2K11:47 AM - May 30, 2018Twitter Ads info and privacy
June 25, 2018
Khloé, now living back in L.A., once again hits up Twitter to get candid with fans, responding to speculation that she’s fully forgiven Tristan and saying it takes “enormous rebuilding” to even “coexist” with him.
Queen Persia@ChicBitchxo · Jun 25, 2018I love, adore & root for @khloekardashian but I’m so disappointed she stayed with that wasteman Tristan. she preaches about women knowing their self worth and when to walk away but when it’s time to walk the walk, she’s a hypocrite
Khloé✔@khloekardashianNot exactly Queen Persia, you have no knowledge of what goes on in our household or the enormous rebuilding this takes to even coexist. I’m proud of my strength. I appreciate your opinion and I hope you hold that same opinion to everyone else who has stayed in situations.
July 7, 2018
Khloé shuts down rumors that Tristan is being “held hostage” by her, that he “can’t leave the house without her,” and that she made him “give up all his passcodes.”
Khloé✔@khloekardashianIf you are corny enough to believe something like this than you must have a very miserable and boring life. The fact that you felt the need to tweet me this already sheds light onto the kind of life you have mamacita ♡@lupedamilfJus put him on an ankle monitor sis @khloekardashian
August 11, 2018
Khloé Snapchats herself making out with Tristan at a club. Everything seems fine!
SNAPCHAT | via Khloé Kardashian : Khloé and Tristan Having fun in nightclub (August 11, 2018)
September 26, 2018
Annnnd, more cheating allegations surface. According to Us Weekly, Tristan goes clubbing in L.A. without Khloé, and not only does he flirt with a random girl who is definitely not his girlfriend, but he also touches her butt. Per an eyewitness, “Tristan and a girl were chatting and flirting throughout the night. They were very touchy-feely. He had his hand on her butt.”
Khloé begins posting a million cryptic musings on Instagram, which people assume are about Tristan’s cheating scandal. Let’s see, there’s this: “Anyone who wants you to live in misery for their happiness should not be in your life to begin with.” And this(!): “Shout-out to everyone making progress that no one recognizes because you never let anyone see your darkest moments.”
She also postpones her move back to Cleveland to be with Tristan.
November 4, 2018
Keeping Up With the Kardashian finally airs the episode where Khloé and her sisters find out about Tristan’s cheating. Ahead of the trailer, Khloé tweets that the scandal was hard to relive....
Anna@AnnaP53 · Oct 29, 2018I feel so bad for @khloekardashian had to go through what Tristan did while filming #KUWTK. If I'm not wrong, next episode will be insane. You're so strong to put that personal issue as part of the show knowing millions of ppl will watch it. I wouldn't be able to do it.
Khloé✔@khloekardashianSadly, it will. I signed up to show the for the good and the bad, right? The bad is very hard to relive but it’s life 10.6K3:03 AM - Oct 29, 2018Twitter Ads info and privacy
But it’s her tweets during the episode that are especially interesting. For one, watching it made her pissed again:
Paige @TalkingToPaige · Nov 4, 2018Trying to remain positive but it’s so hard because @khloekardashian is my girl. He is a great dad. She forgave him. It’s their life, not mine #woosah #KUWTK
Khloé✔@khloekardashianHahaha baby, I’m about to get pissed again too! Lol you are talking me down 46810:29 PM - Nov 4, 2018Twitter Ads info and privacy
And she said Tristan (who refused to watch the episode) was lucky she was nine months pregnant:
ChamarLatanja @ChamarLatanja · Nov 4, 2018Replying to @khloekardashianYou’re sisters are so logical & supportive! I quite honestly would’ve had my boots on & actually going to fight, which I know can make the situation worse. It’s good that they were calm for you.
Khloé✔@khloekardashianOh well thank God a camera was NOT with me in Cleveland!!! I won’t put in writing what I did but let’s just say he’s LUCKY I was9 months pregnant1,62010:53 PM - Nov 4, 2018Twitter Ads info and privacy
Khloé and Tristan appear to still be together (???) despite the ongoing drama surrounding this cheating scandal. But there were some pretty compelling theories that they broke up in early 2019 without telling anyone, which you can read about right this way.
February 19, 2019
TMZ breaks the report that Khloé and Tristan are officially OVER...because he allegedly cheated with Kylie Jenner’s BFF Jordyn Woods. Yikes.
Tristan tweeted “FAKE NEWS” shortly after the news broke, seemingly suggesting that the story wasn’t true, but then he quickly deleted his post.
February 20, 2019
Khloé and her BFFs Malika Haqq and Larsa Pippen all confirm the rumor by commenting on Hollywood Unlocked’s Instagram post about the scandal.
Us Weekly then reports that Khloé confronted Tristan and Jordyn after hearing about the hookup from friends, and despite their alleged agreement to deny the story, Tristan admits that it’s true. Jordyn initially tries to deny it, but she eventually fesses up too.
Later that day, Khloé adds even more confirmation when she Likes a tweet calling Tristan a “sick man” and Jordyn a “terrible woman.” Yikes.
JY@MISS_YOLIE49@khloekardashian dont let anyone ever say this is your fault!. He is a sick man and if its true, then she is a terrible woman, both terrible people that do not deserve your love. TRUE does and ur doing great showing her that love.
Later on February 20, 2019...
Kim Kardashian is the first to unfollow both Jordyn and Tristan on Instagram. Over the coming days, many of her sisters would do the same. In 2019, an unfollow is pretty much the equivalent of cutting someone out of your will, don’t ya think?
February 21, 2019
She ends her Instagram cleanse by unfollowing Jordyn (but note that she still follows Tristan).
Kim and Malika then whisk Koko away on some type of girls’ trip, where majorshading ensues. Kim posts multiple videos of the three of them in a car, in which they’re singing along to songs—but not just any songs. They’re bopping along to Brandy’s “Who Is She 2 U” and Nivea’s “Don’t Mess With My Man,” both of which have pretty explicit messages.
Meanwhile, on February 21, 2019...
Kylie Jenner has remained pretty radio silent on the drama. But according to People, she’s cut off Jordyn completely and kicked her out of her house. Jordyn has reportedly moved back in with her mom, while Tristan has apparently been staying at his ex’s house—where he’s stayed every time Khloé has kicked him out.
February 23, 2019
“Lamar has always cared about Khloé. He still has love for her, and he hates that she’s been hurt again,” the source said. “He has a lot of regret over how he acted in their marriage. And he feels awful that she is going through more pain. He wants to reach out to her and give her his love and support.”
February 24, 2019
“He seemed to mind the drama but didn’t act like he regretted hooking up with Jordyn,” the source said. Kylie then unfollows him on Instagram (but she’s still following Jordyn).
February 25, 2019
TMZ reports that Jordyn said she was “blackout drunk” during her hookup with Tristan and “started crying when she was told what she did.” However, a source tells People that the Kardashians aren’t buying her story.
February 26, 2019
Khloé addresses the situation directly for the first time with a tweet.
Khloé✔@khloekardashianHi loves, wanted you to know that I appreciate you! I’ve been reading your kind words and they really are a blessing to me. I love you! Thank you Thank you! I’ll be back when I’m in the mood to chat with you all. Until then remember to be kind to one another
“Hi loves, wanted you to know that I appreciate you!” she wrote. “I’ve been reading your kind words and they really are a blessing to me. I love you! Thank you, thank you! I’ll be back when I’m in the mood to chat with you all. Until then, remember to be kind to one another.”
February 27, 2019
A source tells People that Tristan reportedly apologized to Khloé. “Tristan has been telling Khloé that he feels bad and that they have a kid together and that he disrespected her as the mother of his child,” the source said. “He’s trying to make amends.”
He wasn’t trying very hard, evidently, because he’s seen out with another girl in NYC that night. According to TMZ, Tristan dined with a woman at an Italian restaurant called Carbone for “hours,” and he even posted the proof himself on his Instagram
It’s unclear whose hand that is in the corner of the shot, but it’s def not Khloé’s! Tristan deleted the photo, but not before The Shade Room took a screenshot of it, of course. Someone call Marie Kondo, ’cause this sh*t is MESSY.
Also February 27, 2019
News breaks that Jordyn Woods is spilling piping hot tea on Red Table Talk, and Khloé Likes a bunch of shady tweets about her upcoming interview. We, the people, are shook.
March 1, 2019
IT GOES DOWN. Jordyn Woods hits Red Table Talk to tell her side of the story in what can only be described as a bombshell interview.
Major takeaways are right this way, but here’s the TL;DR version: Jordyn denies hooking up with Tristan, says she never gave him a lap dance, admits they did kiss, and admits to being drunk at the time.
So, uh, how does Khloé feel about all this? Oh, ya know, she just furiously calls Jordyn out on Twitter for breaking up her family:
Khloé✔@khloekardashian Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!
Khloé✔@khloekardashianTristan is equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child. Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY. If Tristan were to lie publicly about what conspired,then yes I would address him publicly as well
March 2, 2019
Khloé opens up again on Twitter, walking back the previous day’s tweet, in which she blamed Jordyn for breaking up her family:
This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a roller coaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have. Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me wasn’t such a shock as the first time....What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault....I have to move on with my life & count my blessings, my family, my health, & my beautiful baby True.

March 4, 2019
Khloé goes roller-skating with her family and seems like she’s having an amazing time TBH. Jordy who?
March 8, 2019
In a truly weird move, Jordyn Likes and then promptly Unlikes this photo of Kylie Jenner on Instagram. Truly, this is a cringey social media nightmare.
March 9, 2019
The internet freaks out when a photo emerges of Kylie seemingly hanging out with Jordyn, but FEAR NOT, it’s actually just her new BFF Heather Sanders
March 16, 2019
Khloé responds to reports that Tristan isn’t being a good father to True, saying, “He is a good dad to her. My sweet and special baby True will NEVER be put in the middle of him and I. I can promise that.”
C@t l0v3R@sleezyst3v3 · Mar 15, 2019@khloekardashian hunny keep raising your daughter the best way you know how. All she needs is her mom. You’re doing great. Keep ya head up.
Khloé✔@khloekardashianThank you love! You’re so very sweet. But he is a good dad to her. My sweet and special baby True will NEVER be put in the middle of him and I. I can promise that
Sources had previously said, “Khloé is getting extremely upset with Tristan because he isn’t really making any effort to be involved in their daughter True’s life. Khloé understands he is on the road because of basketball and lives in Cleveland, but she just feels that Tristan has moved on. Tristan’s attitude seems to be, ‘I will see True when I see her.’”
March 19, 2019
Khloé tells a fan that the Tristan cheating scandal was fully worth it thanks to Baby True:
Niamh Dermody@NiamhDermody · Mar 18, 2019I genuinely hope @khloekardashian meets someone one day that treats her with the respect she deserves. She’s been through more shiddy relationships than any one person deserves. At least she got baby True
Khloé✔@khloekardashianBaby True made it all worth it Thank you for your beautiful message
March 26, 2018
Khloé posts a photo of herself and True to IG, and like...not to stir the pot, but it kiiinda seems like she’s throwing subtle shade at Tristan with her caption.
Oh, and that same day, Jordyn shows up in London with a full Kardashian breakover look.
March 27, 2019
E! shares an insanely dramatic trailer for the upcoming season of KUWTK, featuring Khloé weeping and saying, “It just sucks that it has to be so public. I’m not just a TV show. This is my life....My family was ruined!”
March 28, 2019
Twitter becomes suspicious and starts theorizing that this entire saga is one massive PR stunt organized by Kris Jenner.
Jordyn is thrilled to be in London and actually timed her trip around when the Keeping Up With the Kardashians trailer dropped so she could distract herself and focus on the future. [Jordyn is] obviously mortified by the trailer, and her mom is upset about it too, but they expected it. It’s still difficult to relive, and Jordyn is glad to be out of L.A. while everyone is talking about it. It’s humiliating and she is still haunted by it. She’s trying to look fabulous on social media, but it’s still a lot for any person to deal with.
That brings us up to date, but let’s be real: This saga is nowhere near over, so stay tuned for updates.
