Kim Kardashian admits she’s ‘struggling’ as a single mom following ugly Kanye West split and reveals Tristan Thompson ‘stepped up’ to attend her son’s basketball games in rapper’s absence

Kim Kardashian opened up about struggling as a single mom on this week’s episode of The Kardashians, while giving some props to her sister Khloe’s ex Tristan Thompson.

While Thompson has been criticized for cheating on Khloe multiple times while they were together – with the exes currently co-parenting five-year-old daughter True and one-year-old son Tatum – the 42-year-old Kim came to Tristan’s, 32, defense.

Khloe and Tristan have long ended their romantic relationship, though Khloe has been letting Tristan and his teenage special needs brother Amari stay at her home, while his home is under rennovation.

During this week’s episode – entiled When Is Being Me Gonna Be Okay – Kim was asked in confession what she thinks of the serial cheater.

She revealed in confession that she defended Tristan, admitting that he was there for her when she was struggling as a single mom after splitting with ex Kanye West.

‘Oh, I know guys are gonna hate me for this and you’re gonna hate us and you’re gonna think Khloe is whatever… It’s so crazy because he’s such a good friend and he’s such a good like Dad… but he just couldn’t get it together in that area, of like being a faithful boyfriend,’ Kim said.

‘So it’s like you wanna obviously like hate him for that. Yeah, of course, his actions and who he was, like so f***ed up,’ Kim admitted.

‘We’ve had our talks about it and we’ve had our fights about it and we’ve had our arguments about it,’ she added, before going on to defend him.

‘But he’s also shown so many decent things and just has been a really good person and friend. When he saw me struggling with my kids, he stepped up,’ she said.

She added that Tristan, ‘started showing up to the games. He picked Saint up, takes them to dinner, and will always come to my defense, especially if it’s stuff with like me and my ex.’


‘And I just like never forgot that, so it’s like, I’ll never really throw someone away and act like I don’t feel like they can’t grow and evolve,’ Kim adds in confession.

Tristan’s presence was surely noted at her son Saint’s basketball games, since he’s played 12 seasons in the NBA for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, Sacramento Kings, Indiana Pacers, Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers.

He most recently signed a contract last month to return to the team that drafted him 4th overall in 2011 – the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Hate: 'Oh, I know guys are gonna hate me for this and you’re gonna hate us and you’re gonna think Khloe is whatever… It’s so crazy because he’s such a good friend and he’s such a good like Dad… but he just couldn’t get it together in that area, of like being a faithful boyfriend,' Kim said

Thompson lost his mother Andrea suddenly in January, becoming the sole caregiver for his teenage brother Amari, who suffers from epilepsy.

Khloe added that Amari is, ’16 years old. He is wheelchair-bound,’ before telling her family Amari has, ‘the most severest type of epilepsy.

She added, ‘he has the worst type of seizures you can have, and he was having so many, before, a day, that it’s caused such severe brain damage and that’s why he can’t walk or talk or any of that stuff.’

‘He’s in a really, like, scary place, because once he hits age 20, is when it will be really bad if we can’t have any improvements,’ she said.
