Khloé Kardashian is defending her decision to stay with Tristan Thompson after news broke in April that the NBA star was allegedly caught cheating on her just weeks before they welcomed their first child together.
On Monday, Twitter user Queen Persia questioned Kardashian’s choice to stand by her man, writing, “I love, adore & root for @khloekardashian but I’m so disappointed she stayed with that wasteman Tristan. she preaches about women knowing their self worth and when to walk away but when it’s time to walk the walk, she’s a hypocrite.”
The 33-year-old “Revenge Body” star was quick to defend herself, tweeting back, “Not exactly Queen Persia, you have no knowledge of what goes on in our household or the enormous rebuilding this takes to even coexist. I’m proud of my strength.”
She continued, “I appreciate your opinion and I hope you hold that same opinion to everyone else who has stayed in situations.”
The internet overwhelmingly turned Team Khloé after the Cleveland Cavaliers forward, 27, was busted spending the night with curvy Instagram model Lani Blair in April. It therefore came as a shock to her fans when Thompson was present while Kardashian gave birth to their baby girl, True, just weeks after his alleged philandering was exposed.
Since then, they have kept relatively quiet, but periodically emerge as a pair.
