Kris shared a sweet message to Tristan when she revealed he sent her a bouquet of flowers for Mother’s Day, months after he admitted secretly having a baby during his affair with Chloe.
It was Mother’s Day on Sunday, and Kardashian mom Kris Jenner was sure to be showered with tons of gifts.
Turning to her Instagram Stories, Kris documented the lavish display of flowers she received from her nearest and dearest, including all six of her children: Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Rob, Kendall, and Kylie.
She was also sent large bouquets of flowers from men in her daughters’ lives, such as Scott Disick, Pete Davidson and Travis Parker.
But one person in particular among a group of gift givers who surprised fans was Khloe’s ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson.
“Thank you @realtristan13!!!” Kris wrote alongside a picture of a bouquet of pink and white roses that Tristan had sent her. She added “I love you” along with a heart emoji.
Fans of Kris’ loving attitude towards Tristan are surprised, given his notorious past with Khloe during their years-long relationship.
To list a few examples: Not only did Tristan cheat on Khloe days before the birth of their 4-year-old daughter, True, but he ended up kissing close family friend Jordyn Woods in a massive scandal in February 2019, which led to their breakup.
Fast forward to Tristan’s 30th birthday in March of 2021, and Khloe announced that the couple decided to rekindle their relationship after spending time together during lockdown.
They split a few months later after Tristan was seen entering a bedroom with three women at a party, but — as Khloe revealed during the last episode of Hulu’s new family show, they split up. Kardashians – They ended up getting back together again.
When asked how she and Tristan were during the episode, which was filmed last October, Khloe said, “We’re actually in a really good place. We just got back together. He’s been going to therapy a lot. There was a lot of effort on his part.”
But back in January, Tristan shocked fans as he revealed he had secretly welcomed another baby with personal trainer Maralie Nichols, who sued him over child support and pregnancy-related expenses in December, when he initially denied the baby was his.
“Today, my paternity test results reveal that I’ve given birth to a child with Maralee Nichols,” Tristan wrote on his Instagram story, before moving on to apologize to Khloé. “Chloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I’ve caused you. You don’t deserve the way I’ve treated you over the years.”
Furthermore, it was revealed that Tristan got pregnant with Marali on the same night that Khloe announced their renewed relationship, on his 30th birthday.
So, with all this in mind, fans were totally bewildered to see Kris’ latest Instagram story praising Tristan, with many taking to Reddit to comment on the seemingly odd dynamic.
“I think that would be very disrespectful. If I had a daughter in the position of Chloe, I would keep her for their child, but I do not accept gifts/affection openly,” one wrote.
Another wrote, “This insults Chloe.”
“How can you as a mother connect with someone who has embarrassed your daughter and treated her like trash. Like what?” A third echoed.
Some have speculated that Chloe and Tristan may have gotten back together, and that Kris has been publicly praising him for this. However, just last week, Khloe shared her uneasiness when she had to watch herself talk hard about Tristan on the last episode of Kardashianswhich was filmed a few months before the news of his paternity scandal broke.
While the episode aired on Hulu last Wednesday, Khloe watched herself pay tribute to Tristan and tweet: “Well, we know how old she is. #Kardashianalong with an eye-catching emoji.
“Watching these episodes now definitely feel kind of the way,” she wrote in a separate tweet. “Hey girl if only you knew…. (I’m talking to me)”.
On top of that, Khloe liked some tweets from fans I see while the episode airs. One person wrote: “You can look at True and say you’ve done it all, you’ve tried to keep your family together. With the same person 19 years old, married, divorced, with a lot of ups and downs in between. Everything really happens for a reason, if he brings U to him It’ll bring U through it.”
Another viewer tweeted, “I [promise] You deserve to find your soul mate and be treated like a queen, you’re like Kurt #Kardashian— which Chloe liked, too.
In light of Khloé’s recent tweets, many fans questioned Kris’ public post that she posted her “love” for Tristan.
“Khloe JUST tweeted about how hard it was to watch her with Tristan on The Kardashians after everything that happened. Like yesterday. Seriously her mom couldn’t post a picture???” one Reddit user wrote.
“Chloe deserves better, wtf?” Post wrote.
