The reality star reportedly went into early contractions after videos of her boyfriend's cheating emerged and she gave birth on Thursday with Thompson by her side despite their rift.
In the wake of the recent controversy involving her boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal, Khloe Kardashian has given birth to their baby girl.
According to the latest report from the Daily Mail, the 33-year-old reality star experienced early contractions on Wednesday following the devastating news of her baby daddy’s infidelity prompting the delivery of her first child less than 48 hours after on Thursday at 4am.
Despite the rift caused by his cheating, Thompson rushed to Khloe’s side at Cleveland Clinic during his distraught girlfriend’s delivery along with her mom Kris Jenner and sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian.
It was reportedly the Cleveland Cavaliers who first issued the news of Khloe’s delivery after they released Thompson from playing following news of his daughter’s birth.
Just a few days before the birth of the latest Kardashian baby, news of the 27-year-old player’s cheating broke along with a video of the NBA star kissing strip club worker Linda Blair at the Penthouse at Dream Downtown in New York on Saturday.
According to the woman who filmed the couple,
“I was there and he was on the table right next to us with a group of friends and some girl who he was obviously making out with all night.
“They were holding each other and it was so obvious. They were there when I got there and they were part of a big group of friends. They were talking and being around each other all night. He was texting and talking on the phone and she was obviously looking over his shoulder.
“Everybody knew who he was. We talked about it and everybody watched them make out several times. I have obviously seen him before and people around me were like, 'That's Tristan Thompson'. I have seen him on TV.
“I know what he looks like and people were trying to take selfies with him but he didn't let them.
“He wasn't wearing anything on his head but he later pulled his shirt and tried to hide, but at the start it was was obviously him. I don't know who the girl was but I took a picture of her looking over his shoulder.”
The pair had reportedly hit a few nightspots that night before heading back to Thompson’s hotel room at the Four Seasons in Manhattan. A video footage of the couple returning to the hotel on early Sunday morning was also released. 28-year-old Blair was wearing a black jumpsuit while Thompson was in track pants and a Supreme jacket with a white hoodie.
It was already late Sunday when the couple reportedly resurfaced from the hotel after which they proceeded to the private members only club, Soho House. More casually dressed in black sweats and a black t-shirt layered under a jean jacket, Thompson was spotted escorting Blair who was wearing the same outfit from the night before to Soho House and later back to his hotel at 5am of Monday.
At one point, Thompson was seen talking on what was believed to be Blair’s phone as he cautiously entered his hotel with the 28-year-old and held on to his phone and a bottle of water. They hung out at the lobby for a while he carried on with his call.
That same night, Thompson resumed with his work playing against the New York Knicks while Blair was spotted leaving his hotel at 8pm still wearing the same spandex jumpsuit and Givenchy high tops she was wearing on Saturday and carrying a Louis Vuitton bag that she wasn’t sporting during the weekend. It’s unclear whether the bag was sent to her later or if she left it at the hotel room prior to her Saturday night date with Thompson.
Shortly after the kissing video was released, TMZ also released a video of Tristan making out with three women at a Washington DC club back in October. One of the women on the video known as Marie later revealed she was unaware Khloe was pregnant at the time and didn’t think the reality star’s relationship with Thompson was serious.
On Tuesday, after news spread like wildfire, Thompson returned to Cleveland to a crowd who booed him Wednesday night during his game with the Knicks. This prompted him to bolt out of the court immediately after the game ended to avoid further run-ins with camera crew. By the wee hours of Thursday morning, his girlfriend gave birth to their baby girl.
Meanwhile, Khloe is expected to remain in Ohio in the next few weeks as doctors prohibited her from traveling with her newborn for at least another month. But this doesn’t mean she can’t travel on a private plane since restrictions were only made for public flights.
It’s unclear whether Thompson’s presence during Khloe’s delivery would lead to a reconciliation between the couple but for now, it’s safe to assume Khloe’s attention will be devoted full-time to her first child. Thompson already has a son, Prince with his former girlfriend Jordan Craig who was still pregnant when he forged a relationship with Khloe.
