Khloe Kardashian revealed that Tristan Thompson threatened to ‘kill himself’ shortly after the Jordyn Woods cheating scandal.
The Cleveland Cavaliers star Tristan, 28, who is the father of Khloé’s one-year-old daughter, True, made out with Jordyn, 21, at an all-night party earlier this year.
The series 16 TV show, entitled Treachery, saw the family fall-out after the betrayal, with Kris Jenner saying Jordyn was like a ‘second daughter’ to her.

Can’t stop, (apparently): Tristan had previously cheated on Khloe when she was nine months pregnant and it seems a leopard can’t change their spots
During a conversation with sister Kourtney and Scott Disick, Khloe reached out to a mutual friend to check up on Tristan at his Cleveland to make sure that he was doing okay after fearing for his well-being, despite him hurting her.
She explained: ‘He’s like, “I can’t stop thinking about you and what mess I have caused”.
‘He’s doing this to get a reaction out of me. Oh, so I’m just allowed to say “I’m going to kill myself” at any time? That’s crazy.’
Sadness: Kris Jenner had said she had considered Jordyn to be like a ‘second daughter’ to her
Scott said: ‘The fact that Khloé is sitting here heartbroken but still worrying about Tristan’s feelings and the possibilities of him being upset or possibly hurting himself
‘I mean, it just goes to show that Khloé is an unbelievable person that loves so hard and so much.
‘Somehow she just keeps getting the short end of the stick, and it’s unfair and it’s hurtful and it’s really hard for me to sit and watch.’
Upset for her: Scott Disick said it spoke volumes that Khloe was worried about Tristan’s mental health, despite him betraying her
It was Jordyn’s misstep, however, that may have caused the most agony, as even family matriarch Kris Jenner, 63, said she had become like ‘a second daughter’ over the years.
‘Jordyn didn’t think about me, she didn’t think about Kylie…she didn’t think about my daughter, she didn’t think about Tristan… and she didn’t think about herself,’ an astonished Khloé, 34, said to her sisters after finding out.
‘We all know what he’s capable of,’ she added, speaking of the man who was caught cheating on her right before she gave birth to True in April 2018. ‘I knew who he was. I never in a million years thought that’s who she was.’
Renovation plans: Meanwhile, Khloe shared her renovation plans with sisters Kylie and Kendall and Jordyn, who said she ‘be down to work out’ with Khloe at her home gym
As the episode opened, Khloé was in a considerably better place, leading sisters Kendall Jenner, 23, Kylie Jenner, 21, and Jordyn, Kylie’s best friend, around her home, which would soon be in the midst of renovations.
Khloé planned to add 3,000 square feet to her house, she said, building a master closet and sumptuous bathroom for two upstairs and turning her bottom floor into a gym with a floor-to-ceiling glass window, overlooking a ravine.
‘I’d be down to work out,’ said an impressed Jordyn.
Khloé had intended to head to Cleveland to see Tristan before he came to Los Angeles for the NBA All-Star Weekend, but nausea brought on by migraines saw her cancel the trip.
On a lark, she took a pregnancy test alongside Kylie and Kris to rule that out as a reason for her nausea.
All were negative, though Kris’s test result was unclear.

Pregnancy tests: Kylie suggested they all take pregnancy tests after Khloe complained of nausea
‘I’m so complicated it doesn’t know what to do,’ she said. ‘It’s never had anybody this old do a pregnancy test.’
Later, Khloé was so sick she was throwing up blood in the middle of the night, going temporarily ‘blind’ in her left eye.
‘Literally, my whole head feels bruised because it’s been pounding for so long—and it’s terrifying,’ said Khloé, who’d had suffered from migraines on and off ‘since sixth grade.’

The pain grew so intense, she skipped the flight in favor of undergoing an MRI to examine the tissue in her brain.
‘I just couldn’t go to Cleveland,’ she told her mom and sister Kourtney, 40. ‘
‘Something is in my head,’ Khloé swore. ‘Something is happening. I’ve been so stressed this whole weekend.’
Feeling down: Khloe had to cancel her trip to Cleveland due to her migraine headaches
To her doctor, Khloé confessed that she had been getting so nauseous, she’d even needed to wear sea-sickness bands on the family’s recent Bali trip, just to stave it off.
Her doctor asked Khloé to go off her birth control pill, then led Khloé into the room where she would have the tests.
‘The results were clear, which Khloé called ‘a weight off my shoulders’, but her doctor did offer one warning.

‘Every time you get stressed out, it can stimulate your migraine,’ she cautioned.
Khloé was moving into a rental as renovations began on her home—and at last, Tristan was finally in L.A, too.
‘I want everything to be fresh and perfect for him, but today I have a migraine again, and that’s just annoying, ’cause I want to see Tristan,’ she said. ‘I miss him.’
Miss him: Khloe admitted that she missed Tristan
That changed quickly.
Her boyfriend, she later announced, had attended an NBA Weekend after-party at an Airbnb apartment he had rented for some of his guy friends and he wasn’t alone, either.
‘Jordyn was there,’ Khloé said. ‘He never came home.’
Her sister Kim, 38, heard the news from friend Larsa Pippen while preparing to do interviews for KUWTK.
The call: Kim got a call from friend Larsa Pippen telling her about Tristan and Jordyn
‘I don’t even know if I should tell you this,’ began Larsa, 44, after learning that a reporter was about to break the story. ‘Tristan and Jordyn were all over each other last night.’
‘He said that they were making out, and I immediately didn’t believe it,’ Kim said. ‘I was like, ”This can’t be true.”
Immediately, Kim, Khloé and Kourtney were on a conference call to discuss what had happened.
Group call: Kourtney and Kim got on a group call with Khloe and Kylie
Khloé said she had already spoken to Jordyn about it.
‘She was like, ”He was trying to kiss me,” and was like, ”I can’t remember if we did or didn’t,” she told her sisters.
Kourtney, who was on her way to the interview room with Kim, was trapped outside the building with paparazzi shooting her photo just as the scandal began to break.
‘She said, ”I can’t remember if we kissed”,’ Khloé went on.
No memory: Kim listened as Khloe relayed her conversation with Jordyn
‘I said, ”If you are too nervous to tell me something, you can text me”,’ and she said, ”Okay,” and ”I’ll call you in five minutes”,’ she said. ‘Twenty minutes later, no call.’
Tristan was on a plane back to Cleveland, so the sisters were forced to sit and wait for any news from Jordyn.
‘I mean I need the whole f***ing truth,’ said Khloé.
Last person: Kim and her family were shocked that Jordyn was involved
‘It must be just such a frustrating situation for Khloé to be in, not knowing what’s going on and just wanting answers,’ Kim empathized.
They all got Kylie on the phone and she also was devastated.
‘I said, ”You need to call Khloé and tell her exactly what happened”,’ the beauty mogul said she’d told Jordyn.
Show interviews: Kourtney and Kim were about to record interviews for the show when the scandal broke
‘It was weird that she didn’t text me at all that evening, ’cause every single time in the past, if Jordyn would ever see Tristan, she would text me, and say, ”Hey, I’m at so-and-so, Tristan’s here”.’
‘So Jordyn called me and said, ”I was your watchdog last night,” and she was there to protect me and keep an eye out,’ Khloé marveled, adding she’d been there until 7 a.m.
All night: Kim and Kourtney learned that Tristan did not come home after being at a party with Jordyn
‘You know, I just feel so bad for Khloé,’ Kim reflected. ‘Jordyn was someone that Khloé really trusted, and believed in, and supported, and employed, and you know, all of the above.’
The show flashed back to Khloé’s Good American denim shoot, for which Jordyn had been a model.
‘Jordyn, don’t disappoint me,’ Khloé had said.
Trust broken: Jordyn was shown in flashbacks with the Kardashians
Best friend: Kylie and Jordyn had been best friends since they were in middle school
‘When have I ever?’ Jordyn replied.
When Kendall heard the news, she fairly screamed.
‘Jordyn? Jordyn? She’s like the last person on the planet that I would have said would have done this,’ Kendall said.
Soon Khloé was back to the group with updates.
Over him: Kim said that Tristan had to go after cheating on Khloe again
‘Jordyn said that they did make out,’ the Revenge Body host relayed. ‘She said, ”I just can’t believe this is happening. I’m so confused.” I’m like, ”You’re confused?”
‘I’m literally shaking, I’m so furious,’ said Kourtney.
‘Here’s the thing about Khloé and Tristan,’ Kim told the show’s cameras. ‘It really took a lot of strength from Khloé to try to make this work for her family and give it a second shot after everything she had been through.’
Tried hard: The reality star said her sister was trying hard to make their relationship work
‘She was like, ”I love you. My loyalty is always to you”,’ Khloé was telling her sisters about Jordyn’s call.
‘What are you talking about, ”My loyalty is always to you?” This is like the biggest contradiction ever,’ Kim argued.
‘It is, but even for Jordyn to know everything I’ve been through with Tristan, my heart is literally in my eyeballs,’ Khloé said.
Big contradiction: Kim pointed out a major contradiction in Jordyn’s account
‘Yeah, that’s how I feel right now,’ noted Kylie.
Kim called it a case of ”blatant disrespect,” pointing out that Jordyn provided for her whole family off the money that Kylie gave to her.
Khloé said that Jordyn had been blaming Tristan for it all, saying: ‘She’s like, ”I was so naive.”
Blatant disrespect: Jordyn was blasted by Kim for her ‘blatant disrespect’
‘That’s just wrong,’ Kylie lamented.
‘They’re both wrong,’ Khloé rejoined. ‘I literally can’t believe… even if he tells me that he’s black and tall—are you, or is this like a mask you’re wearing?’
‘Tristan has got to go,’ Kim said.
Major news: Tristan and Jordyn shocked everyone and created headlines
Momager Kris weighed in later, as confused and saddened by the events as the rest of the group.
‘Kylie and Jordyn have been friends since they were in middle school, and they lived together at Kylie’s house,’ she explained. ‘I mean Jordan and Kylie are as close as you can get. I’ve always felt like she was another daughter.’
‘It’s hard to believe Jordyn was involved in this. I am so disappointed in Tristan, and I feel heartbroken for Khloé—she really wanted this relationship to work.’
Sad situation: Kris said that she considered Jordyn as ‘another daughter’
Kim told her that Tristan, whom Kris called ‘an a**hole,’ had admitted that ‘something had happened—whether it was as small as a kiss, or they were really making out.’
As for Kylie, she said, she felt ‘lost’ and distrusted her pal.
‘Unfortunately, this is going to change their relationship forever,’ Kris affirmed. ‘Because if she would do this to one of us, she would do the same thing to Kylie.’
Lost feeling: Kylie admitted that she felt ‘lost’ and no longer trusted Jordyn
Khloé soon learned exactly what happened as Tristan, getting off the plane, was forced to confirm the details.
‘Everyone left, and Jordyn stayed,’ she related. ‘She was sitting in his lap in a chair, they were all over each other, they were handsy, they made out.’
‘It’s disgusting,’ Khloé continued. ‘I’ll never understand the depths of his… ugh. I was just hoping for a better outcome for my daughter and myself.’
Never understand: Khloe said that she would ‘never understand’ it
In a meeting with Kourtney’s ex, Scott Disick, 36, she shared that Tristan had threatened suicide, and sent their mutual friend Oguz Savas to check on him in Cleveland.
‘He’s the one that messed up, not you,’ said Scott. ‘Don’t make it harder on you.’
‘This is like, a debilitating blow to my soul,’ Khloé allowed. ‘It’s so humiliating, it’s hard. And there’s some days you just wanna cry.’
Suicide threat: Khloe told Scott Disick how Tristan was threatening to kill himself
Savas, 31, called back, saying that Tristan had opened the door to say he was good, and wouldn’t go any further.
‘Do you think he’s going to hurt himself?’ Khloé asked.
‘I don’t know,’ Savas said.
Showing support: Scott told Khloe that Tristan was the one who screwed up
‘Khloé is an unbelievable person who loves so hard and so much, and only wants good, and somehow she keeps getting the short end of the stick,’ Scott pointed out.
At Kim’s house, Kylie, Kim and Khloé caught up.
‘They’re both at fault,’ Khloé said. ‘I’m not just blaming just Jordyn.’
Tough time: Khloe and Kylie met up at Kim’s house to discuss the matter
‘You could do whatever, but when it affects my family, me, then that’s when, like, it’s a problem,’ said Kylie, who added that her friend was crying when she spoke to her.
Jordyn, Khloé interjected, still had not apologized to her, and had started downplaying what happened.
‘Now she’s like ”It wasn’t a big deal, it wasn’t intimate, it wasn’t sexual”,’ a stunned Khloé explained.
No apology: The lack of an apology from Jordyn was bothering Khloe
In a confessional, she was frank.
‘Jordyn and Tristan, you didn’t just ruin my relationship. You both collectively ruined your relationship with me, with your daughter, with Kylie, with everyone. Yes, people make mistakes, people f*** up, but why would you want to do this to yourself?’
‘It’s never gonna be the same again. At least for a while, if we decide, or I decide, to keep her in my life,’ said Kylie.
Relationship changed: Kylie said her relationship with Jordyn would never be the same
Kris called, and said that Jordyn had repeatedly said she was sorry. Kris told her to call Khloé and tell her that.
Khloé said she didn’t want to scare Jordyn, and that she had never spoken angrily to her.
‘I actually said, ”I love you, and I’ve always respected you.” I’m not a mean girl,’ Khloe said.
Nice girl: Khloe was respectful to Jordyn when talking to her
At a ribbon-cutting ceremony for clothing retailer Pretty Little Thing that night, Khloé showed up to do her job, but felt like she was ‘in a daze,’ and ‘going through the motions.’
‘I just want to go home and like, be alone,’ she said, as the paparazzi shouted questions at her.
While Khloé was undergoing emotional turmoil, Kim’s husband Kanye West, 42, was expanding his empire.
Work obligation: The reality star kept her obligation to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony
‘For the last few years, Kanye has always said that he wanted to start a church, so he just started it for his close friends and family,’ Kim said in a confessional.
‘It’s just really about the music and about healing.’
The rapper’s ‘James Turrell-inspired’ Sunday Service features a ‘magical’ gospel choir, and initially took place in a rehearsal space with a circular stage in Burbank, California.

‘I think the intention was always for it to be [a] smaller experience,’ Kim explained. ‘But then when I was posting clips online, everyone really liked to see what was going on, and it just looked like such a cool experience, so more people kept asking to come.’
Later, Kanye changed the venue, creating more room.
‘He found an outdoor space where he could still have the round area that he really loves, but that it would fit more people, and could be a really pretty vibe outside in nature,’ Kim said.
New space: Kim said that Kanye found a new space to expand the service
She called the energy at the new location ‘perfect.’
‘North loves Sunday service,’ Kim added.
‘She just loves to dance. She loves to sing. She loves to be a part of the whole experience with her dad, singing songs and being together.’
‘I can’t wait to see what it turns into and how it grows in the future.’
Keeping Up with the Kardashians will return next week on the E! network.
