Tristan Thompson Recently Owned Up To His Cheating “Mistakes”
As The Shade Room previously reported, Thompson developed a reputation for infidelity after publicly cheating on Khloé Kardashian with her sister Kylie’s best friend Jordyn Woods in 2019.
A few years later, Thompson would father a child outside of his relationship with Kardashian.
However, during his latest appearance on the family’s reality show, ‘The Kardashians,’ Thompson appeared to be owning up to his mistakes. The 32-year-old started by sitting down with Khloé Kardashian’s older sister, Kourtney.
At the time, Thompson explained that he felt “disgusted” after cheating on Khloé. However, he couldn’t elaborate on why the incidents have occurred.

Additionally, Thompson apologized to Khloé’s youngest sister, Kylie, for affecting her “the most” with his actions.
“The fact that I put myself and her in a situation that wasn’t right and wasn’t smart made it tough for you and Khloé because at the end of the day, you have your best friend, and then you have your sister, who you love more than anything else. So it’s 100% on me,” Thompson told Kylie Jenner. “I just want to say I’m sorry again for that. Just because life is so short, and it sucks because even though we made our mistakes, sometimes it’s hard to come back from situations like that.”
