Khloé Kardashian and NBA star Tristan Thompson just welcomed their first child together, but in the past few days, their relationship has been clouded with cheating allegations against the basketball player from his stay in NYC last weekend.

After videos appeared to show him cheating on the reality star on Saturday, the story escalated—more incriminating footage leaked and even his ex-girlfriend chimed in. On top of that, Kardashian, 33, and Thompson, 27, who have been dating since late 2016, were also preparing for the birth of their daughter as the controversy unfurled.

Here’s everything we know about the scandal so far:

A video appeared to show Thompson kissing a woman who isn’t Khloé.

On April 10, The Daily Mail published a video showing Thompson getting “up close and personal” with an unidentified brunette woman. The clip was reportedly taken at PH-D Lounge in Manhattan on Saturday night, April 7. Thompson and the woman appeared to share a kiss, but it’s unclear, since the footage only shows Thompson’s back. However, the outfit he’s wearing in the clip matched what he was wearing in other photos from the club.

The woman who took the video told the Mail that she and other onlookers “watched them make out several times.” She explained, “I was there and he was on the table right next to us with a group of friends and some girl who he was obviously making out with all night. They were holding each other and it was so obvious.”

Thompson appeared to bring the woman back to his hotel.

Another video, published by TMZ later on April 10, shows Thomspon and the mystery woman heading into his team hotel, the Four Seasons in Manhattan, together. The footage was also reportedly taken on Saturday night.

Page Six reported that they spent four hours there before heading out to Soho House, a members-only club, in the Meatpacking District. Hours later, they were spotted returning to the hotel again, reportedly at around 5 a.m. on Sunday morning. Witnesses said Thompson was “looking around cautiously.”

The woman was seen leaving the hotel, reportedly the next day, Monday, at around 8 p.m., wearing the same outfit from the night before, according to the site. She was also photographed holding an overnight Louis Vuitton bag. Page Six reports that it has identified the woman.

Another video from October surfaced, allegedly showing Thompson cheating on Khloé with two women.

TMZ also obtained and published a video that was reportedly from October 2017, when Khloé was about three months pregnant (two months before she went public with her pregnancy). The footage showed Thompson with two women, allegedly at a hookah bar in D.C. In the clip, one appeared to grab his face and kiss him. The second appeared to pull his face to her chest and grabbed between his legs.

The site later reported that one of the women “was given the impression Tristan and Khloe’s relationship was casual” and was unaware that Khloé was pregnant.

Someone claiming to be Thompson’s NYC hookup posted a sex tape on Instagram.

A user who goes as @ms.stephaniee._ on Instagram claimed to be the woman who kissed and went home with Thompson in New York last weekend. TMZ reported that she posted then deleted a sex tape and sexts that appeared to be between her and Thompson in her Instagram story. The user even reportedly tagged the basketball player in her posts and claimed she was pregnant. Screenshots of @ms.stephaniee_’s posts continue to circulate on Instagram and Twitter.

The brazen move had people second guessing whether @ms.stephaniee._ really was the woman who spent the weekend with Thompson. It turns out, it was just a social media troll.

After the user’s posts gained traction, she changed her Instagram handle (it was originally @ms.stephaniee_ and she just added a period), made her account private and changed her bio to: “Will not be taking anymore interviews from the media. Thank you.”

Tristan’s ex, Jordan Craig, seemed to respond to the scandal.

Before dating Khloé, Thompson dated lifestyle blogger Jordan Craig, with whom he shares a 16-month-old son, Prince Oliver. Despite whispers that Thompson cheated on Craig with Kardashian, it’s unconfirmed whether the ball player was still with Jordan when he started seeing Khloé, People reports.

On April 10, Craig seemed to comment on Tristan’s cheating allegations and shut down gossip that the infidelity was “karma” to Khloé. She wrote on her Instagram story: “If you respect yourself and you respect others, you would never make light of the misfortune of anyone, nor would you feel indemnified when it comes at the expense of others. Wishing peace for everyone.”

Craig might’ve broken her silence, but the Kardashian-Jenner family, including Khloé, remain tight-lipped.

Thompson is allegedly a “serial cheater.”

After videos from last weekend and October appeared to show the basketball player being unfaithful to Khloé on two separate occasions, a source told People that there’s more to the story.

“Tristan has been consistently cheating on Khloé,” the insider claimed. “He’s a serial cheater. And there will be more women to come out of the woodwork.”

Tristan returned to Cleveland.

The Cavalier center returned to his home base in Ohio for a game against the New York Knicks on Wednesday night (April 11). He wasn’t photographed around the city prior to the game; he was likely avoiding media attention following the cheating accusations. He made a low-key entrance to the Quicken Loans Arena and was reportedly booed by audience members whenever he was shown onscreen.

Khloé reportedly “went ballistic” and is “distraught” over the news.

The new mom hasn’t publicly responded to the cheating accusations (and neither have the rest of her famous family members). However, she reportedly “was devastated when she saw the pictures of Tristan with that girl, she went absolutely ballistic at him,” a source close to the Kardashians told Page Six.

Another source told E! yesterday: “Her entire world has been turned upside down. She cried hysterically all night. She begged to come back to L.A. and tried to find any way to make it work but her doctor wouldn’t let her. She just wants to be with her family and leave as soon as possible.”

The insider added, “At this point in time, Khloe doesn’t want to speak with Tristan. And the family is keeping them apart until she goes into labor.”

The Kardashian-Jenner family flew to Cleveland to support Khloé.

On April 11, People confirmed that Kris Jenner was already in Cleveland, “giving Khloé as much support as possible,” and that Kim was en route.

“They’re trying to keep her emotionally stable,” a source told People. “The whole family is beyond pissed at Tristan. The goal is to get Khloé out of there as fast as they can without jeopardizing the safety of the baby after she’s arrived. Khloé just wants to be home.”

One of Khloé’s friends responded to the allegations.

While the Kardashian camp stays quiet, Khloé’s pal Khadijah Haqq (Malika’s twin) seemed to respond to Thompson’s cheating accusations with a quote on Instagram: “the best thing a father can do for their children is love their mother.” The post was shared on April 11.

Khloé gave birth.

Sources confirmed to People that Kardashian welcomed her and Thompson’s baby girl on Thursday, April 12. Thompson was reportedly present for the delivery. Khloé’s mother, Kris Jenner, later confirmed the news on social media.

The new mom reportedly started feeling contractions yesterday, hours after the cheating evidence surfaced, even though she was originally due at the end of the month, per TMZ. In a separate story, the site reported that Khloé put “her feelings on hold” and planned to let Thompson in the delivery room for the birth of their first child together.
