Khloé Kardashian has opened up about forgiving her ex, Tristan Thompson, following the paternity scandal that rocked, and ended, their relationship last year.
In this week's episode of The Kardashians, Khloé, 38, was asked how she was able to make peace with the NBA player, 31, after he confessed to fathering a child with another woman, Maralee Nichols, last year.
"It's probably, maybe practice?" said Khloé. "I think a lot of people maybe forget that I've been through a lot of BS. My ex-husband [Lamar Odom], when we were married, definitely had a very public drug problem and was found in a brothel, and there was a lot of things that probably aren't forgivable, and I'm still able to forgive him and move on and want the best for him.
"It only hurts me by holding onto all this stuff, so let it go. Let go and let God."
Khloé – who has recently welcomed baby number two with Tristan via surrogate – was also praised by mum Kris Jenner, who said: "Khloé's handling the whole Tristan thing with so much grace.
"As her mom, I can tell Khloé has been feeling really down – I can just feel her energy.
"And I know she internalises everything, which I do worry about."
Maralee announced that she had given birth to Tristan's child in December 2021, alleging they had got together during his birthday celebrations back in March.
One month later, the basketball player confessed he was the father, issuing a public apology to Khloé for his infidelity.
"Khloé, you don't deserve this," he wrote at the time. "You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.
"You don't deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you."
Just a month prior, the couple's baby boy was conceived via surrogate. A rep for Khloé had previously said: "We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November.
"Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We'd like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloé can focus on her family."
The little one was born earlier this year, with Khloé describing her baby boy as a 'beautiful gift'.
Khloé previously spoke about her decision to allow Tristan to visit their son at the hospital, after he had been born.
"I’ve been on the fence about letting Tristan come to the hospital or not, but Tristan wants to be here so I just figured, why not let him come? I’ll never get this moment back," she said.
The second season of The Kardashians continues on Disney+ every Thursday.
