Khloé Kardashian is heading back home as soon as possible.
According to an Entertainment Tonight exclusive, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star reportedly plans to return to Los Angeles after welcoming her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson amid his cheating scandal. Their baby girl was born on Thursday, April 12, 2018, in Cleveland, Ohio.
“After a very tumultuous few days for Khloé, she has made the decision to fly home to Los Angeles as soon as the baby is ready to travel,” a source said of the reality TV star, who had been planning to split her time between LA and Cleveland, where Thompson plays for the Cavaliers. “Right now, she realizes she needs her family around her and knows they are the people in her life that she will always love and trust.”
As for the future of the couple’s relationship, the insider added, “Tristan and Khloé talked about marriage before the videos came to light, but that has been put on the back burner.” However, the Kardashian-Jenner clan, who are reportedly “furious” with the basketball pro, believe the Revenge Body star “deserves better.”
“They have all stayed positive,” the source continued, explaining that momager Kris Jenner, sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, and best friend Malika Haqq, who were all in the delivery room, did their best to keep Khloé focused on her baby. “They will continue to be there to support Khloé when she returns home to Los Angeles….Right now, Khloé’s health and well-being is first and foremost to Kris and the family.”
As Nicki Swift previously reported, the new mom‘s famous family have taken to “rallying around” her after Thompson was caught on video allegedly cheating on her with multiple women just days before their child’s due date. “[Khloé] was devastated when she saw the pictures of Tristan with that girl, she went absolutely ballistic at him,” a Page Six source said after the news broke. “She is not only hurt, she is humiliated and worried for their child. How could he do this, and so publicly, when their baby daughter could arrive within a week?”
Kardashian, 33, and Thompson, 27, who have been together since October 2016, confirmed that they were expecting their first child together in December. At the time of this writing, neither have publicly commented on the infidelity reports.
