She swiftly followed up with another tweet, holding the NBA player accountable for his involvement in the scandal.
“Tristan is equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child,” she tweeted. “Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY. If Tristan were to lie publicly about what transpired, then yes I would address him publicly as well.”

However, he also needs to understand the consequences: ‘Was that one stupid weekend or whatever you did worth it? Look at what it did to three years of our relationship. It completely destroyed it. So was it worth it for you?'”

The season 17 premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians gave viewers a glimpse into Kardashian and Thompson’s first public reunion since his cheating scandal with Jordyn Woods in February.

To ease the initial awkwardness, she invited him over the night before the party to have a private meeting.
Although Kardashian tried to maintain a civil atmosphere and even suggested taking a family photo, her main concern was how Thompson would interact with her sister Kim, who had been openly critical of their relationship.
“This situation is a little uncomfortable,” Kardashian expressed. “Everyone is watching us, and I’m particularly worried about Kim and Tristan’s dynamic.”

“I’m torn about whether I should keep it or not. I just want to make sure there are no expectations,” Kardashian shared on a December 2019 episode of KUWTK after calling Thompson to express her gratitude. “Keeping something like this, would it send the wrong message? It’s such a sweet and kind gesture, but a necklace isn’t going to fix everything.”
As for the ring, Kardashian made the decision not to keep it in order to avoid any confusion about their relationship.
“I told him that I really appreciate it, but I don’t think I can accept it,” she explained. “I see the new and improved version of you, but I don’t want there to be any blurred lines or for you to misunderstand anything.”
