Tristan Thompson is trying to right a wrong.
During the Nov. 16 episode of “The Kardashians,” the NBA star apologized to Kylie Jenner four years after cheating on Khloe Kardashian with Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods.
During the “overdue” meeting at Jenner’s home, Thompson told the cosmetics mogul, “I think you were basically most affected by the situation of losing a sister. You lost Jordyn, who was a big part of your life.” It’s part of life.”
“You guys were two peas in a pod,” he added. “So, the fact that I put myself and her in a situation that wasn’t right and wasn’t smart made it harder for you and Khloe. Because, at the end of the day, you have your best friend. And then you have your sister, who you love more than anything else.”
Thompson — who shares daughter True, 5, and son Tatum, 15 months, with Kardashian — took full blame for kissing Jordyn during a house party in February 2019.

“It’s 100 percent on me, but I want to say I’m sorry and I feel bad about it,” Jenner explained. “The truth is that I came up with my poor decisions and being an idiot and just being young and stupid, I just want to say I’m sorry again for that.”
Jenner was accepting of his apology. Although she remains protective of her older sister, the “KHY” founder acknowledged how all the parties have grown since the fallout.
“Thank you for saying that,” she shared. “I appreciate it. I think I was so co-dependent with Jordan that I could never imagine my life without her. We probably would still be living together. I think she would have loved to be my “I needed to grow without him, I needed to grow without him.”
And the 26-year-old made it clear she’s not holding it against her former BFF, saying, “Jordyn and I are good. We still talk and hang out. We’re good.” (In fact, the pair reunited later in July for a sushi dinner in Los Angeles, their first public outing since the scandal.)
Thompson, 32, also asked Jenner to deliver her peace offering to Jordyn, 26.
“Tell him I’m sorry for, you know, whatever,” the basketball player said. “During that time also she had to face a lot, probably she had to face a lot of criticism, so that relationship went in a different direction, it’s because of me.”
Jenner admitted that Thompson has done some “dumb ass s—” and that she doesn’t understand why he cheated on Kardashian multiple times, including his tryst with Maralee Nichols, which led to his divorce in December 2021. There was a paternity scandal over their child Theo.
She told Thompson, “You have a great heart and good energy, and to know you’re loved you have to be loved.” “So, it’s confusing.”
Moving forward, Jenner wants to move on from the drama: “It’s hard to forgive what you did to Khloe, but I want to move on from that.”
Thompson ultimately attributed his “selfish” behavior to “not really understanding the value of good people.”
He said, “I am in no position to ask for anything.” “The only thing I can do is provide for myself and be who I am. Then, I think over time, it’s maybe not an apology, maybe it’s just gaining back everyone’s trust.” Try. At the end of the day, you want your family to be comfortable around you. You would never want anyone to look down on you or look down on you or question your character or integrity as a human being.’
In fact, Thompson — who is also dad to ex Jordan Craig’s 6-year-old son Prince — said fatherhood is his biggest motivation for improving on his past mistakes.
He explained, “I never want my daughter to go to school and talk all these big things about me and then have a little kid come up and say, ‘Your father is like this, is like this, is like this.’ “She would be embarrassed and it would break my heart, because she looks up to me so much. You just want to be a good influence and role model for her so she can be proud of you.”
