Kim Kardashian hangs out with Tristan Thompson for 'friendsgiving' after Kris Jenner shades him on-screen
In the season finale of 'The Kardashians,' matriarch Kris Jenner took a jab at Khloe's ex while meeting her new grandchild
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: This week, Kim Kardashian shared photos of herself with her sister Khloe Kardashian's adulterous ex at a Thanksgiving gathering. This comes only a day after the November 24 episode of Hulu's 'The Kardashians', in which Kris Jenner wasted no time criticizing Tristan Thompson after Khloe returned home from the hospital with her new baby boy.
On Thursday, the reality star posted photos on Instagram of her recent "Friendsgiving dinner" in a juvenile detention center. She also shared a Thanksgiving lunch with the group inside the prison to honor the occasion. The NBA player could be seen standing next to Kim when they interacted with the prisoners and seated at the dinner table. This came just a day after Kris shades Tristan while discussing baby names for Khloe's son on their Hulu show.
Though Tristan has continued to attend family events, the KarJenner family has made it obvious how they feel about the athlete. The arrival of Khloe and Tristan's baby son, born through a surrogate in August, was highlighted in the November 24 episode of 'The Kardashians'. While it was a joyous occasion for the entire family, there were still important tasks to attend to after Khloe brought the baby home. "What are we going to name him?" Kim Kardashian inquired about her sister. "That's what I need to know."
Kris Jenner wasted no time in making a suggestion, adding, "How about Rob? How about Rob Kardashian-Thompson? And then just call him Rob Kardashian?"
Kris' obvious disdain for Tristan comes about a year after Khloe — and the world — learned that in December 2021, a woman named Maralee Nichols welcomed a newborn boy called Theo with Tristan. Tristan was still in a relationship with Khloe when the child was conceived in March 2021. 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star discovered his adultery shortly after their surrogate got pregnant with their second baby. 'The Kardashians' Season 2 has seen the exes' feud come to a head. While Tristan previously denied being the father of Maralee's baby, he later revealed the positive paternity test findings in early January, while also publicly apologizing to Khloe.
Fans have also chastised Kim for adding a forbidden family member in recent images. Despite the good act of the budding lawyer, many were surprised to see Kim's sister, Khloe's unfaithful ex, accompany her on the trip. In her caption, the Skims founder gave a shoutout to Tristan: "This year I’m really thankful for the people I have met in all of the prisons around the country. This week @realtristan13 and I had an inspiring Friendsgiving dinner with the young men incarcerated at Camp Kilpatrick."
Fans were more interested in why Tristan was at the event, given his turbulent relationship with Kim's sister. One fan asked, "Why are you doing this with Tristan after what he did to your sister? Please make it make sense." Another remarked, "Kim, what we aren't going to do is make Tristan the enemy and then try to give him his redemption arc. Blur his face out, lol."
Regardless of how Khloe feels about her baby daddy, the couple has maintained a co-parenting relationship for their children.
