Lastly, Thompson included a sweet photo of the Good American founder and their daughter True, six. 'You are the best mom,' he added in text towards the top of the snap.

Khloe began dating the Cleveland Cavaliers star in 2016 - with the pair welcoming their first child, True, in April 2018.

However, Tristan cheated on the TV personality when she was pregnant with their daughter. After the shock news broke, the pair remained together.

In response to a social media user on Twitter that same year, Khloe had expressed, '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. I appreciate your opinion and I hope you hold that same opinion to everyone else who has stayed in situations.'

The following year in 2019, the two split after Thompson kissed Kylie Jenner's former BFF Jordyn Woods at a party - but reconciled during the Covid-19 pandemic after they quarantined together.

In June 2021, the pair once again ended their relationship, while a source told Us Weekly at the time that the stars 'remain amicable toward each other and will continue to coparent.'

Later that same year, Maralee Nichols sued Tristan for child support after she welcomed their son earlier that month.

The basketball pro issued an apology to Khloe, stating, 'you don't deserve this.You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.'

'You don't deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.'

On July 28, 2022, the pair welcomed their second child - son Tatum - via surrogate.

Along with his son, Theo, whom he shares with Nichols, Thompson is also father to Prince. He welcomed the baby boy with ex, Jordan Craig.

Last year in October 2023, it was revealed that he owed Craig$224,000 in child support for son Prince.

Following his numerous cheating scandals, both he and Khloe have seemingly put the past behind them.Earlier this month, the pair were seen grabbing a bite to eat together at Nobu in Malibu.

And during an episode of Hulu's The Kardashians which also aired in June, the beauty revealed whether the 'door is closed' regarding rekindling a romance with the NBA player.

'I don't want to [date]. Once I'm done with the kids at 9, I have limited time. 9:30-4pm, that's my time. I'm not sharing it with a man. I'm not sharing my TV, I'm not sharing my bed,' Khloe said.

When questioned by Scott Disick if there was 'any hope for Tristan' for them to get back together in the future, she revealed that the 'door is closed.'

In a confessional, the businesswoman added,'Are you kidding me? This is life. We all gotta grow up and move on. I feel like everyone has been really judgy about how I spend my time because I'm not dating.'
