A couple of years later, she wed NBA player Lamar Odom after only one month of knowing each other. They split in 2013, four years after they first said “I do”, with Khloe filing for divorce in December.

Just months into dating, in 2017, Khloe fell pregnant with her first child.

Despite getting cozy with other women while she was heavily pregnant, Khloe forgave Tristan and welcomed him back into her life. Nevertheless, the Good American mogul finally broke things off with Tristan in February 2019. It came after he reportedly cheated on her again by kissing Kylie Jenner’s BFF, Jordyn Woods, at a party. Since then, Tristan has been trying desperately to get back in Khloe’s good books, filling her IG comments section with all sorts of flirty remarks. Reports have since emerged that the co-parents have rekindled their romance,
