‘She’s leaning heavily on Kris all of the time. But Kris wants Khloe and Tristan to be in a good place so she’s encouraging Khloe  to keep the lines of communication open.’

‘Khloe is really struggling with what’s happening with Tristan. This time that he was unfaithful has been much harder than the previous times,’ the insider said.

‘She really wants the relationship to work and she has been devastated,’ they added.

Khloe and Tristan, who shared daughter True, three, together, were in a relationship in March 2021 when he conceived the child with Maralee.

‘[Khloe] wanted the fairytale life with him and she’s so upset,’ the source said: ‘People around her have never seen her so down and are so thankful she has her mother there who has barely left her side,’ the insider noted. 

In addition to his newborn son and three-year-old daughter True with Khloe, he also shares a five-year-old son Prince with ex Jordan Craig.

Tristan shared with his fans on Monday, January 3: ‘Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions.

‘Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.’ 

Tristan then spoke directly to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star whom he first started dating in 2016.

He wrote: ‘Khloe, 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 have certainly 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,’ his statement read.

The admission posted to Instagram marked the first time the Sacramento Kings player has publicly acknowledged he’s now a father of three.

‘There was never any doubt that Tristan Thompson was the father of Maralee Nichols’ baby,’ her lawyer, Harvey Englander, later told DailyMail.com a statement.

‘Tristan made numerous false and defamatory statements and declarations about Maralee over the past few months, and she is taking his contrite statement today in the context of all of those statements.’

His first cheating scandal went public in 2018.

In 2018, Dailymail.com revealed Tristan had cheated on the then-pregnant Khloe with a strip club worker from New York City named Lani Blair.

They welcomed daughter True on April 14, 2018.

At the time, other outlets reported additional women; however despite the cheating scandal, Khloe remained with Tristan until she when she split with the athlete in February 2019.

In February 2019, Tristan kissed Jordyn Woods after a house party, which was his second cheating scandal.

It is interesting to note that Jordyn was primarily blamed by the Kardashian family publicly on social media and on KUWTK, with Tristan and his behavior seemingly overlooked.

She was 21 at the time while Tristan was 27 and Khloe was 34.

Despite the turmoil, Tristan and Khloe rekindled their romance during the COVID-19 pandemic as they went into lockdown together in March 2020 with daughter True.

It was reported in June 2021 that Khloe and Tristan broke up for the second time.

That same month, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed how Tristan disappeared into a bedroom with three women at a house party in Bel Air over the weekend. Lawyers for Thompson denied the claims. 

The way they were: 'It's hard for her family when she is upset. They love her so much. Khloé is such a strong person though,' the source added

It has been revealed that Tristan declared his love for Khloe on the social media app in March 2021 just hours before meeting up with Maralee and conceiving the secret child.

On March 13, 2021, Khloe gushed about Tristan on Instagram in honor of his 30th birthday – which, at the time, confirmed their very much on-again status. 

Khloe had confirmed their on-again status in the gushing post, writing: ‘The ones that are meant to be are the ones who go through everything that is designed to tear them apart and they come out even stronger than they were before. Thank you for showing me everything you said you would. For the father you are. For the best friend I have in you. I’m thankful that I can do absolutely nothing with you and it feels like everything.’

Adding: ‘I hope you know today and everyday how loved you are by me and so many. I can’t wait for all the memories. This is when life just starts getting good.’

Soon after he gushed about Khloe and declared his love, the cheating basketball player cheated and conceived the secret child with Maralee.

He flew with his team – the Boston Celtics – to Houston to play against the Rockets hours after comments.

 Maralee previously claimed the child had been conceived while celebrating the NBA pro’s birthday in Houston in March 2021.

The Rockets played the Celtics in Houston on March 14 – one day after he posted his comments on Khloe’s Instagram and seemingly the day after their reported hotel meet up. 

At that time, Tristan and Khloe, who have had an on/off relationship plagued by allegations of his infidelity, were said to have been back together.

DailyMail.com exclusively revealed details of the paternity battle in December after Nichols filed a lawsuit against the NBA player.

Maralee, 31, a fitness model, gave birth to their son on December 1, 2021. 

Independent woman: 'I do not want any further media attention, nor do I want a romantic relationship with Tristan. My goal is to raise our son in a safe, healthy, loving and private environment,' Nichols has said
