Khloé Kardashian finally admits Tristan Thompson is ‘not the guy for me’

Khloé Kardashian has opened up about her complicated relationship with her child’s father, Tristan Thompson, in an interview for Thursday night’s “The Kardashians: An ABC News Special.”

“With Tristan I did feel incredibly safe in the beginning, and I felt really good for a time,” Kardashian, 37, told Robin Roberts of “Good Morning America” during the sit-down.

“I remember when he cheated on me right before I gave birth, and I was able to still have him in the delivery room, and so yes, it might have looked strange to the outside world, but when my daughter watches my home videos, those videos are going to be as pure and perfect as I was able to make them.

“I still think he’s a great guy and a great dad, he’s just not the guy for me.”

When asked about wanting more privacy amid her personal traumas, Kardashian offered, “We all crave those times, we definitely do, but I think we all know what we signed up for,” later adding that, “What I go through on social media is not what I go through in real life.”

Kardashian’s relationship with the father of her only kid, daughter True, has been public fodder for years, receiving a boost in attention after the NBA baller had a child with another woman last year, reportedly while in a relationship with the “Good American” founder.

“Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols,” Thompson, 30, confessed back in January after facing a paternity suit from Nichols. “I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son.”

“Khloé, you don’t deserve this,” he added. “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.”

While facing Robert’s line of questioning was the first time the reality star directly addressed her relationship with Thompson since his affair, she subtly shaded her ex with a post about his actions three weeks after his confession, sharing via Instagram, “Betrayal rarely comes from your enemies.”

Big sisters Kim and Kourtney were also required to bare all during the Q&A, with the Skims founder opening up about her relationship with boyfriend Pete Davidson and the “Poosh” creator discussing her highly-publicized relationship with “husband” Travis Barker.
