Kim Kardashian’s presence at Tristan Thompson’s games has gotten fans wondering if the Lakers player has rekindled his romance with Khloe Kardashian.
But Khloe, 38, hit back against the gossip in a lengthy post asking fans to ‘stop pushing this narrative.’
It all started after the blind item account DeuxMoi speculated Kim, 42, was attending the Lakers games to prepare the public for a Khloe and Tristan, 32, reconciliation.
‘Allegedly he’s back with Koko so maybe she’s soft launching the idea so everyone is prepared & doesn’t give Koko a hard time,’ the account posted.
The rumor caught Khloe’s attention after it was reposted by a fan account, prompting the superstar to address it herself.

What’s going on? DeuxMoi speculated Kim Kardashian was attending the Lakers game to help ‘soft launch’ a Khloe and Tristan reconciliation
‘Stop pushing this narrative. It’s tiring. But I suppose You guys will continue the narrative you want regardless of what I say so what’s the point. It’s exhausting but I learned people will only understand to the level of their own perception,’ she began in her lengthy comment posted Tuesday.
‘Most are stuck at believing the lies because it’s the narrative they want to fuel. Have fun…. Some things are just as simple as they seem. A family member supporting another family member ESPECIALLY during a difficult time in life.’
She then used her relationship with Scott Disick as an example. Despite his split from her sister Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe has remained friends with him.
‘Example….. just how I support scott and will forever support him. He’s my brother. It’s just not on an nba stage. Sad new world, If there’s no photos people think it really didn’t happen but yes, I see Scott often. Some things really are just as they are,’ she wrote with a heart emoji.
That same day Khloe posted more deep and mysterious quotes to her Instagram Stories, including ones about romance and enduring drama.
‘Swear nobody goes through more s**t in life than a person with a good heart,’ one message read.
‘I stopped explaining myself when I realized people only understand from their level of perception,’ another read.
A lengthier message wished the reader would find a deep and loyal love.
What’s the buzz? Gossip account DeuxMoi postulated Kim was preparing the public for a Khloe-Tristan reconciliation by appearing at the games
‘I hope you find the kind of love that makes you a softer person. The kind of love that makes you want to be a better man or woman, the kind of love that believes in you and supports you, that stands by your side.
‘I hope you find someone who quickly becomes your favorite thing – someone who makes the fall less fearful, someone you can’t help but choose every single day. I hope you find someone who shows you just how deeply you can feel, just how deeply you can love.
‘I hope you find something real, because nothing is more beautiful than loving someone who loves you back. Nothing is more beautiful than loving someone who builds you a home in their heart.’
The latest update comes as fans have been speculating over a possible Khloe/Tristan reconciliation after Kim was seen attending his games despite his serial philandering and subsequent paternity scandal.
Family: Khloe shares daughter True and son Tatum Robert with Tristan
Sending a message: That same day she posted more deep and mysterious quotes to her Instagram Stories, including ones about romance and enduring drama
On Friday night, Kim attended the game with a homemade ‘Tristan Thompson’ sign as she sat front row alongside her daughter North West.
Khloe and Tristan share two children: daughter True, five, and a baby boy named Tatum Robert.
The on-off couple conceived their newest addition via a surrogate, but they broke up before he was born after it was revealed that Tristan had fathered a baby boy named Theo with another woman, Maralee Nichols, 31.
Unbeknownst to Khloe, Tristan had impregnated Maralee in March 2021 and he was informed of her pregnancy as early as July 2021.

Despite knowing he had a baby on the way with another woman, Tristan kept the news from Khloe and encouraged her to continue on with their surrogacy journey.
An embryo transfer was successfully completed in November 2021, just one week before DailyMail.com would exclusively reveal that Tristan was expecting a child with Maralee – who gave birth to Theo in December 2021.
Though he initially denied being the child’s father, Tristan took to Instagram in January 2022 to confirm that he’d taken a paternity and was in fact Theo’s dad. He also stated that he planned to ‘amicably’ co-parent with Maralee.
Tristan issued an apology to Khloe, whom he has cheated on numerous times in the past, including while she was pregnant with their daughter True in 2018.
In spite of all this, Khloe has repeatedly stood by Thompson and even called him the ‘best father’ in March when she wished him a happy 32nd birthday on Instagram.
The tone-deaf post made Twitter go nuclear on Khloe, with one critic asking: ‘Good father? What about little Theo?’
