Kim Kardashian has opened up about the difficulties of being a single mother after her separation from Kanye West. She has confessed to struggling and shared that Tristan Thompson has been supportive in attending her son’s basketball games in Kanye’s absence.
During a confession, Kim revealed that she stood up for Tristan, acknowledging the support he provided when she was struggling as a single mom after breaking up with Kanye West. While she acknowledged his infidelity and recognized that he made mistakes, Kim defended him as a good friend and father who showed many decent things. She also shared how Tristan stepped up by attending her son’s basketball games, taking him out to dinner, and defending her in situations involving her ex. Kim stated that she would never throw someone away and believes that people can grow and evolve. Having played 12 seasons in the NBA for various teams, including the Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, Sacramento Kings, Indiana Pacers, Chicago Bulls, and Los Angeles Lakers, Tristan recently signed a new contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Dislike: “I’m well aware that some guys might not agree with me on this, and they could end up disliking both Khloe and myself. I find it quite amusing that despite being an excellent friend and father, he couldn’t manage to remain faithful in his relationships,” stated Kim.
Kim expressed her feelings towards Thompson, saying that his actions and who he was in the past were messed up. Thompson lost his mother suddenly earlier this year and now takes care of his younger brother Amari, who is wheelchair-bound due to severe epilepsy that causes him to have numerous seizures a day. Khloe explained how the seizures have caused severe brain damage, preventing Amari from walking or talking. She also revealed that Amari’s condition is in a frightening state, as it will become worse once he reaches 20 years old if there are no improvements.
