Khloe Kardashian felt “pressure” to rekindle her romance with Tristan Thompson.
The 36-year-old reality star split with Tristan last year after he was unfaithful to her, but the pair have been growing closer over recent months, as they’ve been self-isolating together so they can co-parent their two-year-old daughter True amid the coronavirus pandemic.
And in a sneak preview from Thursday’s (11.12.20) episode of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ Khloe confessed to feeling a sense of pressure to get back together with Tristan, after he was honest about his intentions.
Speaking to her best friend Malika Haqq over the phone in the clip, she said: “He’s been super helpful, and when I was isolated, he helped with so many responsibilities. I can also tell his energy is different.
“He’s like, ‘I just want you to know, if ever you are thinking the same thing, I’m here for you.’ ”
To which Malika told her: “He’s still in love with you.”
And Khloe added: “I feel a little more pressure. He’s never said, ‘I need an answer,’ but I feel like he needs an answer as to like, what are we doing.”
The Good American co-founder then said during a confessional she still has a “block up” because of her past experience with Tristan, but is hoping the 29-year-old NBA star will be able to “take those bricks down brick by brick” with time.
She said: “I do feel pressure from Tristan but not because he’s ever told me – I’ve never had an ultimatum from Tristan. I just feel like it’s been over a year since we broke up and now that we’re hanging out more, I can tell that he’s getting antsy.
“I just wish I had a definitive answer on my end. I 100 percent have a block up, but who wouldn’t? Every relationship I go into, they’re always disappointing and f***** up. I have every reason to be guarded. I have every reason to have these bricks up and layers. If somebody cares enough, they will take those bricks down brick by brick.”
Since the episode was filmed, Khloe and Tristan have been speculated to have gotten back together, although the pair have not confirmed the news.
