Malika Haqq provides an update on Khloe Kardashian’s health in the wake of her ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s most recent affair. Khloe’s longtime best friend Malika opened up about how Khloe is doing in the wake of Tristan’s paternity scandal, in which the NBA player fathered a child with another woman while he was still in a relationship with “The Kardashians” star, on an episode of Carlos King’s podcast, “Reality with The King.”
Malika, 39, stated, “I think she’s doing about as well as you could expect for someone in her situation. Back in January, Tristan, 31, confirmed rumors that he had cheated on Khloe, 38, once more and had fathered a child with Maralee Nichols, who gave birth to the kid in December and gave birth to Theo. Khloe and Tristan split up again after the controversy, but they had already decided to have another child together.
The couple, who have been in an on-again, off-again relationship since 2016, and who has a 4-year-old daughter named True Thompson together, were also reportedly expecting a second child in July. This month, Khloe and Tristan welcomed a kid via surrogacy. Malika claimed during her interview on the “Reality with The King” podcast that she believes the controversy surrounding Tristan’s infidelity has “stripped” Khloe of some of her “golden periods.”
The reality star said, “There are some glory times that are really supposed to just be glory times. She’s hardly the first woman to ever withstand adversity in a relationship or be forgiving. And while it’s tragic that some of that has been taken from her, she is actually one of the strongest people I know because she has a good head on her shoulders.
She has a lot of faith, which is something different, according to Malika. “I’ll make that clear. ‘ Because it’s not easy, I find it difficult to watch, so I know how difficult it must be for her. The actress responded, “Oh, for sure,” when asked if she was the kind of person who would step in and call a man out if he wronged a friend. Please.”
Family is really important to both of us, said Malika, who has a 2-year-old son named Ace with her ex-boyfriend O.T. Genasis. “When it’s just you, it’s not the same. Now we have these children. These fathers, who are excellent fathers, play important roles in the lives of our newborns. We may all sit here and say some s—- should never happen, but it does, she said, “what happens with the moms and the spouses.” And I believe it is time to keep reminding oneself that these babies are the top priority.
