Curious fans are wondering: are Khloe and Tristan still together? 

Now that time is winding down on The Kardashians, everyone is curious what's next for the youngest sister. 

While Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson seem to be enveloped in bliss, and the Kourtney and Travis wedding plans keep on comin', Koko is nursing a broken heart and indiscretions, but trudging on. 

*FAIR WARNING* If you're not yet caught up with the Hulu's debut Kardash season, you might want to turn away now. 

Before diving into specifics, let's revisit the issue at hand. Khloe and Tristan have been on-again, off-again since their union in 2016. Throughout their relationship, Tristan was involved in a cheating scandal—right before the birth of the couple's daughter, True in 2018—kissed Kylie Jenner's former best friend, Jordan Woods, and ultimately never really regained the Good American founder's trust, and understandably so. 

However, things seemed to be on the uptick in 2021 at the start of the family's new reality show. Koko was busy constructing her new mega dream home next door to momager Kris—which might make you wonder, "Who is the richest Kardashian"—and speaking candidly to cameras about how she and Tristan were in therapy working through their issues. 

Right as the home was complete and the family was set to move in, super-sleuth Kim Kardashian discovered a terrifying admission from Tristan that he had fathered a son with Maralee Nichols. She calls all family members bright and early one morning to uncover what they know about the situation. Once she finally gets ahold of Khloe, things turn south.

Apparently, this indiscretion had taken place around the time of the NBA player's 30th birthday...a milestone that Kardashian marked with him. Needless to say, she was less than pleased upon hearing the news. 

Kardashian had some choice words for her beau, as did Kim. In a conversation between the two sisters, Kim told Khloe on the season finale: "If that were me and I was really trying to redeem myself and I was trying to be a better person, I would definitely just keep my d*** in my pants."

Are Khloe and Tristan still together?

After the whirlwind, the two are no longer together romantically but continue to co-parent True. Ahead of The Kardashians' April 2022 premiere, the family sat down with Robin Roberts of Good Morning America.  

"I still think he's a great guy, and he's a great dad. He's just not the guy for me," Kardashian told the news anchor. 

Tristan Thompson apology post

When the news of Thompson's paternity scandal broke in early 2022, he was quick to turn to social media with apologies: 

"Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son," he wrote on Instagram stories. 

The apology continued: 

"I sincerely apologize to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately. "Khloe, you don't deserve this. You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don't deserve the way I've treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again I am so incredibly sorry."

For those who are asking, "When is season 2 of The Kardashians," we'll give you the scoop. Hopefully, Koko will be able to enjoy a drama-free relationship when the sophomore installment airs.
