TMZ: Khloe Will Let Tristan In The Delivery Room -
Khloe Kardashian is taking the high road.
Despite rumors and videos suggesting Tristan Thompson has cheated on the almost-ready-to deliver Khloe, she is allowing him in the delivery room so he can immediately build a bond with their baby.
She began having early contractions yesterday and Kris Jenner is by her side in Cleveland now.
We wish Khloe a safe delivery!
Tristan Thompson heard from a hometown crowd how much they hate him for cheating on Khloe Kardashian.
During last night’s NBA game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks, the crowd booed Tristan. He didn’t start the basketball game, but when he came off the bench he was greeted by a chorus of boos. And Tristan got heckled every time he touched the ball.
Tristan played an uncharacteristically high 30 minutes and scored 10 points with 9 rebounds. (People)
Talk About It:
- To be a fly on the locker room wall just to hear how his teammates teased Tristan about being the top trending gossip story.
- Khloe relocated to Cleveland to be closer to Tristan.
- Her world has been turned topsy-turvy right before the biggest moment of her life — giving birth to a baby she’s wanted for so long.
- The NBA playoffs start this Saturday.
- The off-season may start soon for Tristan. The Cavaliers are long-shots at winning the Eastern Conference, much less the NBA Championship.
