Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard all about Tristan Thompson’s paternity scandal.

In case you need a brief recap: In December, rumours began to swirl that Maralee Nichols had given birth to Tristan’s baby and was suing him for child support. The baby’s date of birth would have meant that Tristan was in a relationship with Khloe Kardashian when the child was conceived.

Tristan denied that he was the baby’s father, but in January 2022, paternity test results revealed it was, in fact, his child. He confirmed the news on his Instagram.

Writing, “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.”

“Khloé, 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.”

This is not the first time Tristan has cheated on Khloe. He and Khloe share a daughter, True, 3 years old, and just before her birth in 2018, it was confirmed that he had been unfaithful. This scandal really damaged Tristan’s relationship with Khloe and her family.

So after three years of repairing those relationships, how is Khloe’s famous family reacting to yet another cheating scandal?

Travis and Kourt might not be married yet, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t stepping up to those brother-in-law duties. He is no stranger to supporting his future sisters-in-law, and this situation is no different. He and Kourt decided to focus their attention on Khloe and tried to cheer her up and show her some support by sending some beautiful pink roses. Khloe clearly appreciated the gesture, as she shared a pic of the gorgeous bouquetto her Instagram story, writing, “My cuties @travisbarker @kourtneykardash I love you”

Big sister Kim and Khloe have grown especially close over the past couple of years, as any good KUWTK viewer could tell you. So, of course, she is all about supporting Khloe and letting her know that she will always be there for her little sister. On the day of the paternity reveal, Kim posted a picture of herself, Khloe, and their kids with an infinity symbol as the caption. What better way to show eternal support than with an infinity symbol. Khloe loved the show of support and commented back with 3 infinity symbols of her own.

Mom Kris’ boyfriend Corey and her daughters have had their issues in the past, but they have always worked things out. However, things might be getting more complicated between the bunch. E! News reported that a few days after the paternity reveal, Corey showed up at one of Tristan’s basketball matches and held up Tristan’s jersey to the paparazzi outside the game. Seeming to support Tristan amid all the drama. But Tristan and Khloe share a daughter and have made it clear in the past that they will always be each other’s lives for their daughter. So maybe he was just trying to keep the peace and show support for Tristan as True’s dad.

Kourtney’s ex and Khloe are pretty much besties and get on like a house on fire. Their shared love of pranks and parties has provided hours of entertainment over the years. So obviously, he was going to be there for Khloe during this difficult time. Scott sent Khloe some gorgeous flowers as a pick me up in the midst of all the chaos. Khloe adored the gesture and shared a pic to her Instagram story. She showed her appreciation in the caption, writing, “I love you @letthelordbewithyou thank you.” These pair are forever.

Of course, these are the displays of public support. We’re gonna have to wait until the beginning of their new Hulu show, The Kardashians, to see all of their detailed reactions. The show will premiere later this year and will be available internationally on Disney+.
