The Hulu star, 37, was asked about the drama with her ex, 30, in an interview with USA Today.

She confessed, “That was hard,” adding that it felt like “deja vu” from the other times Tristan was unfaithful.

The star also revealed who first told her about the drama that went down with Tristan.

Khloe recalled: “I think the first time it was either Kendall [Jenner] or Kylie [Jenner] that called me. Now it’s good old Kim [Kardashian.]

“You do become numb to the pain.”

The mom of one went on: “When you’re hurt so many times – your reactions, your responses to the same thing happening over and over again – there is a numbing sensation to it.”

Khloe has discussed Tristan’s cheating in the past.

She told Variety that fans will get to see her learning of the unfortunate news on The Kardashians, which airs on Hulu.

The Good American co-founder said: “It will be addressed on the show. We try as a family to protect the privacy of our partners or significant others, since they didn’t really sign up for this; we did.”

She went on: “but if something is really public like this was, it would be strange if Tristan was a part of the show and then all of a sudden he disappears and we don’t ever talk about it.”


Tristan has already appeared on The Kardashians, popping up at a family get together.

One viewer noticed Khloe’s ex boyfriend looking “terrified” after Kim pulled her sister aside to talk privately during a bar-bbq.

On TikTok, a fan shared the clip, which showed Kim, with an iPad in hand, excusing herself from the meal.

“Khloe, look at this?” Kim calls out, as her sister respond, “What? Let me see?”

As the two leave the room, Tristan’s eyes grow wide.

“Look at Tristan’s face, he is scared!” the fan can be heard saying with a laugh. “He looks so guilty.” 

In the comments section, others couldn’t help but agree that the Canadian-born athlete looked guilty.

“Lmfao, his soul left his body,” one fan noted, while another added: “I’m dying bc he looks so scared.”


The Chicago Bulls player confessed to fathering the child a month after Maralee welcomed the baby boy.

He shared the news on his Instagram Story along with an apology to Khloe.

“Today, paternity tests results revealed that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols,” Tristan wrote.

He continued on his Story: “I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established, I looked forward to amicably raising our son.

“I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”

He then turned his attention directly to his ex.

“Khloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.

“You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions have certainly not lined up with the way I view you.
