As news swirled of Tristan fathering his third child with Maralee Nichols, Kim Kardashian gave her younger sister some tough love, she said: "So he's been lying to you. If this isn't the biggest sign for you to not have another baby with this human being."
Khloé began to break down at the revelation, replying to Kim: "This cannot be happening."
"We really believed he had changed, I was his biggest supporter," Kim said as she comforted a heartbroken Khloé, "but if this isn't the most clear situation, I don’t know what is."
The sisterly advice came out in full force during the episode: "When someone hurts someone that you love, you get protective. My heart is breaking for Khloe because I know she was really trying, and I know he was really trying."
Khloé explained how disrespected she felt to have found out about the betrayal as the news hit the media.
"If you’re going to do it, you’re not even going to give me a f****g heads up before the rest of the world? It’s just an additional slap in my face," she said.

"Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologise to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately," Thompson wrote.
