Kourtney Kardashian Barker candidly expressed her thoughts on her sister Khloé Kardashian’s former partner, Tristan Thompson, during a recent episode of “The Kardashians.” As the family gathered at Kourtney’s Palm Springs residence, the topic of Tristan came up, shedding light on Kourtney’s feelings and those of her daughter, Penelope Disick.
Kourtney, aged 44, initiated the conversation by inquiring whether it was acceptable for Tristan, 32, to visit with Khloé, 39. She shared her initial unease, recalling how she felt triggered by him on Penelope’s first day of school. Kourtney acknowledged her emotional reaction, attributing it to Tristan’s past actions. She noted that they often overlook his transgressions for the sake of family harmony but admitted to being unable to ignore her discomfort at times.
The Poosh founder elaborated on her feelings in a confessional, underlining Tristan’s terrible decisions and their influence on her sister. She recognized the hardship of being around him when he was agitated, but also the significance of keeping peace, considering that he is the father of her niece and nephew.
Khloé found herself reflecting on her relationship with the NBA player, with whom she shares a five-year-old daughter named True and a 13-month-old son named Tatum when she arrived at Kourtney’s residence. Khloé was proud of her ability to co-parent with Tristan, but she also stressed the necessity of respecting her family members’ emotions, notably her 11-year-old niece, Penelope. She made it clear that she did not ignore or justify Penelope’s feelings but instead offered her support.
The show emphasized that Khloé and Tristan’s complicated relationship was a topic of discussion among her sisters other than Kourtney and Kim.

She highlighted her intention to keep a positive environment and a calm co-parenting dynamic for their children. Even while she looked forward to moving on and finding a companion who wouldn’t bring her emotions of humiliation, she realized that their bond as parents would continue.
