Nothing screams family drama louder than the Kardashians. With internal feuds, accusations, secrets, and surprisingly enough, just as much affection for each other, the Kardashians are truly an intriguing family. One such secret belonging to one of the sisters, Khloé Kardashian, got spilled on Thursday’s episode of The Kardashians.

It turns out that Khloé had gotten a marriage proposal from Tristan Thompson, the NBA star with whom she used to be in quite an unstable relationship. The socialite had chosen to keep this proposal a secret from the rest of her family until it finally got revealed in a recent episode of the family’s reality show.

The pair have been known to have an “on and off” kind of relationship ever since they started dating. But even with all the cheating scandals and other such controversies, they’d still managed to welcome two children together. And from the looks of it, Thompson had been planning on sealing the deal with a proposal ready at the doorstep.

In December 2020, the 31-year-old NBA free agent had asked Khloé to marry him, but unfortunately, the latter had turned him down by rejecting his proposal. While talking about why she had done so, the former Kocktails With Khloé star confessed that she didn’t feel “proud” to accept the proposal, and neither did she feel happy enough to share it with her family.

“I need to make sure this is a totally different relationship because I want to be proud to say I’m engaged to anyone, and that’s why I said I’m not comfortable accepting this right now because I’m not excited to tell my family”, Khloé said.


Though she realized that her reaction might’ve hurt Tristan Thompson, she also stated that it was better, to be honest with him about her true feelings rather than dishing out “false hope.”

“As hurtful as that probably was for him to hear it was the truth. I’m not ever gonna accept something and give someone false hope”, she remarked.

Khloé Kardashian kept the news about the marriage proposal hidden from her family

On Thursday’s episode, the news was revealed in a shocking manner by Kim Kardashian as she had a conversation with her sister. “The fact that he proposed and you never told us, and I asked him months later”, she told Khloé.

“Oh, I did it months ago. She didn’t tell you guys?” Tristan had said to Kim some time ago.

The SKIMS founder even went ahead and joked about the whole thing, claiming how at least her sister was brave enough to make the decision of rejecting Thomspon. If it would’ve been her instead, she would “have to say yes” to such a proposal, or else she’d “just feel so bad.”

Almost the entirety of the episode involves the family delving into this topic whilst also trying to help Khloé to move on from the devastating news of Thompson cheating on her again. Not only that, but he had also gotten Maralee Nichols pregnant while all that time he had been encouraging Khloé to have another baby.

The pain of such news only worsened when Khloé found out that she was going to be welcoming yet another child, a baby boy with Thompson.


But she also talked about finally being able to let go of all the hurt that had been holding her back, thanks to her newborn. “Now that my son is here, I get to move on and I get to enjoy. It’s almost like I get to close that chapter and be done with this trauma and put it behind me.”

Though the pair aren’t together anymore, Khloé granted Thompson permission to visit their child in the hospital.

Whether this means she’s ready to put water under the bridge, is not certain, but it sure is a step toward moving on. And every ounce of effort counts.
