Khloe Kardashian has revealed that sister Kim Kardashian was the one who broke the news to her about then-boyfriend Tristan Thompson's infidelity last year.
The pair opened up about that conversation, with Khloe noting that she's grown to be "more numb" in regard to her ex's philandering.
Last year, a former fitness model named Maralee Nichols filed a paternity lawsuit against Tristan, claiming he impregnated her. The NBA player initially denied the allegation, but later admitted to having several sexual encounters with Maralee. A DNA test confirmed that he was the father of her baby boy, Theo.
At the time of conception, Khloe and Tristan had reconciled (after several cheating scandals) and were said to be dating exclusively. There had been rumors that he and Khloe were even secretly engaged at the time.
In recalling the phone call Khloe got from Kim last year about Tristan, the Good American founder told USA Today, "That was hard."
"I think that was hard for me, too," Kim chimed in, remembering she was filming a workout for "The Kardashians" when she told her younger sister.
Khloe and Tristan's relationship hasn't exactly been smooth sailing, as he had been unfaithful to her several times over the past five years, including when she was days away from giving birth to their daughter, True. Other women have also alleged that they slept with Tristan while he was dating Khloe.
"Déjà vu," told USA Today, referring to the other instances. "I think the first time it was either Kendall or Kylie [Jenner] that called me. Now it's good old Kim."
Still, Khloe said the pain from her ex's repeated cheating "doesn't get easier," but she has become "more numb" to the his apparent lifestyle (she did, though, once write off cheating reports as "hearsay").
"When you're hurt so many times — your reactions, your responses to the same thing happening over and over again — there is a numbing sensation to it," she said.
Kourtney Kardashian relayed that Tristan's cheating scandals became "normal," even though "it should absolutely never become normal."
Kris Jenner said it was "shocking" to hear that Tristan fathered a third child, but insisted the family is not "really focused on the filming of it at all until you watch it back."
In a recent interview with ABC, Khloe said she's realized the Chicago Bull is not the right person for her.
"I remember when he cheated on me right before I gave birth, and I was able to still have him in the delivery room. It might have looked strange to the outside world, but when my daughter watches my home videos, those videos are going to be as pure and perfect as I was able to make them," she said.
