If you’re keeping up with the famous family, you’ll know that the pair are no longer together after it was revealed last year that the NBA star fathered a son during a fling with fitness model Maralee Nichols.
But given their new Hulu TV show, The Kardashians, was filmed prior to this latest indiscretion, Khloé, 37, and Tristan, 31, were in the midst of trying to patch up their fractured romance after a previous 2019 cheating scandal (the one in which he allegedly kissed family friend and model Jordyn Woods).
In the episode which aired today, the couple discuss how Khloé’s sister – Kim and Kourtney Kardashian – have managed to maintain civil co-parenting relationships with their respective exes, Kanye West and Scott Disick. And Khloé said it’s because their parents, Kris Jenner and her late dad Robert Kardashian Sr, set a good example for the brood.
“We have a very loyal strong bond in our family. We are great co-parents, and we are great at blending families. We have learned that from my mum and my dad,” Khloé told Tristan during a joint workout session on camera. “Like Scott is never leaving and Kanye is never leaving. Looks like you are never leaving. We are all here forever.”
This is when the conversation got awkward for those watching at home.
“More like you are never leaving me,” Tristan told her. Watch a preview above.
Unfortunately, that’s not the only awkward exchange the pair have had in this new series. In an episode that aired two weeks ago, Khloé gushed about how much Tristan had changed since going to therapy to confront his issues.
“We’re good. We’re actually in a really good place,” she said on camera. “We just got back together. He’s been going to therapy a lot. There’s just been a lot of effort on his part.”
“He’s a great father. True has her routines and she loves having them with both of her parents. It’s so great to see that joy on her face,” she continued.
“When we broke up, I learned how well he and I got along, and what good friends we are, and what good partners we are. I have a lot of hope and faith and optimism for our future together.”
If you cringed while watching these scenes, spare a thought for Khloé.
“Well we know how this aged #TheKardashians 🙄,” she tweeted earlier this month after the episode aired.
“Watching these episodes now I definitely feel a type of way,” she wrote in a separate tweet. “Oh girl if only you knew … (Me talking to me).”
