Tristan Thompson May Have Used Instagram DMs To Cheat On Khloe Kardashian

Khloe Kardashian recently gave birth to her first child, a baby girl named True Thompson. Regardless of the cute newborn, the conversation around the family continues to circle back to Tristan Thompson, Khloe's NBA boyfriend and True's father. As it was revealed shortly before the pregnancy, Tristan Thompson allegedly cheated on the reality TV star with several women, which was captured -- at least, in part -- on camera. And there might be more fuel to add to the fire, according to recent reports. Per a source close to Thompson, the basketball player allegedly used Instagram DMs in order to contact the women he cheated on Khloe with.

Per reports, an unnamed person claims Tristan Thompson sent direct messages to girls on the social media platform and arranged to meet them with he was still dating Khloe Kardashian. More specifically, US Weekly claims Thompson likes "exotic or non-American looking girls" with large bottoms. Beyond that, the source admits that Thompson is known to flirt with other girls, including at the NBA All-Star Weekend in February. As the source notes, if you didn't know better, you wouldn't think Thompson was in a committed relationship -- let alone an expecting father with a famous reality TV girlfriend. Alas, if these rumors appear to be true, then all of the NBA's dirty laundry is coming out to dry now.

As it was reported a little over a week ago, Tristan Thompson was reportedly hooking up with a woman he met in New York City. The woman posted lewd text messages and a potential sex tape, neither of which could be confirmed as Thompson. However, it wasn't long after that when it was revealed that Thompson was seen kissing and motorboating two women in a hookah lounge in Washington D.C., as well. Security footage actually showed the athlete in the act. The word about Thompson's unfaithful acts was made public only a couple days before Khloe Kardashian gave birth to True Thompson in Cleveland, OH.

While Tristan Thompson was allowed in the delivery room, it's not clear where Thompson and Khloe Kardashian stand as a couple. They were previously set to live and raise True Thompson together in both L.A. and Cleveland, but with this recent bombshell, their relationship status is left in question. Allegedly, Thompson is working to win back Khloe, claiming to be extremely remorseful for everything that came out about him and working toward winning the media figure's affections back in order to stay committed as both a couple and a family. While it won't be easy, Khloe Kardashian reportedly might be won over because she loves Tristan "unconditionally," though she was reportedly "devastated" by the news. Still, what will happen next is unclear. We'll keep you posted on the latest developments between the two as they come out.
