Timing is everything, according to Khloe Kardashian. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has been keeping fans on the edges of their seats with weeks of cryptic posts that seemed to imply she was ready to break it off with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, only to be contrasted with posts of them together in lovey-dovey mode; Sunday’s KUWTK episode finally addressed all of their issues head-on, and Khloe kept up the dialogue on social.
On the show, fans saw for the first time how Khloe planned to welcome their daughter True as video of Tristan cheating on her surfaced. Throughout the episode and after, Khloe talked to her fans on Twitter, speaking candidly about her emotional state then and now.
"I love filming for the show and I am proud that we are all strong and brave enough to be vulnerable BUT we have to start airing shows closer to real time," she said. "This episode is about 7 months old and it’s a lot to relive all over again but maybe I need to."
Khloe continued: "Oh my God my heart is racing! So crazy how emotions never die! You may forgive but forgetting is not possible."
Sharing insight into her state of mind, she tweeted: "Oh well thank God a camera was NOT with me in Cleveland!!! I won’t put in writing what I did but let’s just say he’s LUCKY I was 9 months pregnant."
When a fan slammed Khloe for making the birth of a child and a sex scandal so public, she got heated: "Thank you love! I appreciate that! But HE made it public. Not us. So I had to publicly deal with all of this SMH."
Defending her decision to allow Tristan to attend the birth, she said: "I wanted to have a beautiful birthing experience for myself and for the memories of what I choose to share with True when she’s older. I want her to have videos and pictures of her daddy there, holding her etc. I want her to know she is LOVE and my happiness! Babies feel energy! I know this! I chose to put my feelings aside for the birth and to try and have as much positive energy that I could."
Fans on Twitter rallied around Khloe, but also took the opportunity to drag Tristan again. One fan summarized the general sentiment, tweeting that she "hated" him before, but after watching the impact of his cheating on the Khloe and her family, he was officially "dead" to her.
