Khloe Kardashian compares her family to ‘the mob’ to on-and-off boyfriend Tristan Thompson on the sixth episode of Hulu’s The Kardashians.
The 37-year-old Khloe and the 31-year-old Thompson have been dating off and on since 2016, and share four-year-old daughter True Thompson together.
While the couple were thought to have split in June 2021, Khloe revealed in the fourth episode that her and Tristan were back together… just months before it was revealed that he cheated on her AGAIN and fathered a THIRD child with personal trainer Maralee Nichols, that was uncovered in a paternity lawsuit in December 2021.

The episode – entitled This Is a Life Or Death Situation – found Khloe and Tristan heading to Kim’s house to work out at her gym, since Khloe’s house is still being built.
‘Kim has been sharing her gym with me for a good year and a half now, so God bless her,’ she says in confession.
She adds that the gym is her and Tristan’s, ‘happy place’ and they motivate one another and just have fun in the gym, it’s awesome.’

After hanging out with Kim and Kanye and their kids for a bit, Khloe and Tristan go back into the gym, as Khloe asks him a question that she wants him to be, ‘as honest as you want’ in answering.
‘Is this not the most – either an individual would say, “What an amazing family that you just keep everyone around at all times?” Or, are you like, “How does this family still keep all these guys around?” Like, once you’re in, it’s like the mob. You can’t get out,’ Khloe asked.
Tristan said, ‘It’s like blood in, blood out, right?’ as Khloe says in confession they have a, ‘strong, loyal vibe in our family.’

‘We are great co-parenters, we are great at blending families, we’ve learned that from my mom and my dad,” she added in confession.
She added it was how they were raised, adding her dad and stepdad played golf together twice a week, as Tristan admitted, ‘Yeah that doesn’t really happen anywhere else besides your guys’ family. Usually the dad and stepdad, somebody is getting hit with a golf club.’
Khloe added, ‘Like Scott, is never leaving. Kanye is never leaving. Looks like you’re never leaving. We’re all here, forever.’

‘No no, more like you’re never leaving me,’ Tristan said, as Khloe said, ‘Oh, OK. We’re family whether you like it or not. But I think it’s such a beautiful thing.’
What Khloe doesn’t know while this episode was being filmed was that Nichols filed a paternity lawsuit against Thompson in June 2021, though it wasn’t reported publicly until December 2021.
Nichols had claimed that their child – who was born in December 2021 – was conceived on Tristan’s 30th birthday on March 13.
The NBA player flew with his team – the Boston Celtics – to Houston on the 13th, for a game against the Houston Rockets on the 14th, with the child reportedly conceived that night.
Thompson had known about Nichols’ pregnancy, with uncovered texts revealing he offered her $75K to keep quiet about the pregnancy.
A paternity test confirmed Thompson was the father, his third child along with three-year-old daughter True with Khloe and five-year-old son Prince with ex Jordan Craig.
It was reported in early December that Khloe and Tristan had been, ‘broken up for a while, and things are okay between them.’
During their workout on the episode, Khloe also asks Tristan about an incident at one of his games, where he had a fan ejected who was talking trash about Khloe.
He admits what the fan said, ‘was directed at you,’ and she asks what he said, as Khloe adds in confession she saw a report online about it but it didn’t have any details, as Khloe admits she is, ‘curious as to the details.’
‘Whatever you know just stuff in the past and whatever your past is what it is,’ Tristan tried to explain but Khloe pressed for more specifics.
‘I don’t know, just like she’s going from… she talks to different basketball players and you’re just the next one,’ Tristan explained.
‘I said, ‘Listen here man, enjoy the game with your girl, cause she’s coming here to see me,’ Tristan added as Khloe laughed.
‘OK, he called me a whore and said I date basketball players. I’ve had six boyfriends. Three of them have been in the NBA,’ Khloe said, referring to Tristan and exes Lamar Odom and James Harden.
Tristan said, ‘You’re not gonna keep talking about my family like that, so I got his a** outta there.’
Khloe says that Tristan is, ‘very protective’ of the family, which Khloe says is ‘really cute.’
They’re joined by Kim – clad head to toe in a super puffy white dressing gown, along with her youngest kids Psalm and Chicago, with Kanye West there to take them to school, as Kim decides to pull a little prank on the apparently easily-scared Tristan.
Kim holds out a small wooden box and gives it to Tristan, but he’s immediately skeptical and jumps back.
‘Is something in there alive?’ Tristan asks, as Kim laughs and says, ‘No, what a weirdo,’ before giving him the box, but he still isn’t sold yet.
‘It’s shaking!’ Tristan says and gives Kim the box back and tells her to open it, but Kim says, ‘I swear, Bible, there’s nothing alive in there. My God, why would I give you something alive?’
Slightly reassured, Tristan takes the box back as Kim says, ‘Open it freak,’ which he finally does, as a fake spider pops out and scares Tristan, with Kim starting to laugh.
‘I knew it was something! You got me, you got me,’ Tristan says, as Kanye is seen playing with the box, where a fake spider pops up when you move the wooden latch back, as Tristan calls Kanye, ‘Fearless over here.’
No: ‘No no, more like you’re never leaving me,’ Tristan said, as Khloe said, ‘Oh, OK. We’re family whether you like it or not. But I think it’s such a beautiful thing’
