Khloe Kardashian secretly engaged to Tristan Thompson before paternity scandal

Khloe Kardashian was reportedly secretly engaged to Tristan Thompson just a month before conceiving a child with another woman.

Kardashian, 38, revealed the new episode of The Kardashianswhich streams on Disney+, that she rejected Thompson’s first proposal in late 2019.

However, People Now reports that the NBA star popped the question to Kardashian again in February 2021, which she accepted — and they remained engaged for nine months.

The American reality star made headlines in April that year when she uploaded a picture of a diamond ring to Instagram, but she never confirmed the couple were engaged.

Then in December 2019, the recurring couple, who share four-year-old daughter True, were thrown into another relationship crisis when it emerged that Thompson, 31, welcomed a son that month with the fitness instructor Maralee Nichols. Thompson was aware of the baby’s impending birth, but never told Kardashian about it.

In the Season 2 premiere of the popular Hulu family series last week, film crews were on hand when Kardashian found out via the media that her fiancé was weeks away from becoming a father with another woman.

Viewers then saw Khloe tearfully tell her sister, Kim Kardashian, that after months of trying to conceive via surrogate, her embryo transfer was finally successful.

Khloe later revealed in a video confessional how betrayed she felt, given that Thompson encouraged her to continue the process of trying for a child, despite knowing he was secretly welcoming a baby with Nichols.

“It’s so close that I wouldn’t want anyone to think I did this [pregnancy] afterwards,” she said. “Why would I want to have a baby with someone who is going to have a baby with someone else? Because I’m not that much of a sociopath. I’m a crazy person. (But) I’m not bothered.

Nichols, 31, then welcomed a son, Theo Thompson, in late December.

In July of this year, Kardashian and Thompson welcomed their second child, a son, who was documented on the show. His name has not yet been announced publicly.

“Since December, it’s been this dark cloud that’s been hanging over me,” Kardashian said.

“Every day I feel down and sad, and now that my son is here I can move on and enjoy. It’s almost like I can close this chapter and get over this trauma and put it behind me.

Kardashian welcomed True in April 2018, a year after Thompson first became a dad to son Prince with ex-girlfriend, Jordan Craig.

While Kardashian and Thompson split in February 2019 following multiple cheating scandals on her part, including when Kardashian was pregnant with True, they reconciled later that year.

Thompson admitted to having sex with Nichols in March 2021 in court documents, which were made public in December of that year.

He issued a creeping public apology to Kardashian via Instagram in January.

“Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols,” the NBA star, 30, wrote. “I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to raising our son amicably.

“Khloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartbreak and humiliation I caused you. You don’t deserve the way I’ve treated you over the years.

“I have the utmost respect and love for you. No matter what you think,” he added. “Again, I’m incredibly sorry.”
