Khloe Kardashian ‘focussing on her own happiness’ after Tristan Thompson heartache

Khloe Kardashian is said to be "focussing on her own happiness" after her ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson fathered a secret child last year.

Khloe, 37, and her 30 year old basketball player ex Tristan are understood to have been together when Tristan conceived a baby boy with Maralee Nichols last year.

Tristan is said to have had the encounter with personal trainer Maralee while he was visiting Houston for his 30th birthday celebrations in March 2021.

He has since confirmed that he is the father of Maralee's child following a paternity test and made a grovelling public apology to Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Khloe.

But the stunning star, who shares daughter True with Tristan, is said to be prioritising herself.

A source has told People: "She wants the new year to be different."

"She wants to focus on her own happiness," they added.

When quizzed over Khloe's hopes for finding love, the source said: "can't imagine dating right now."

"But her family knows that she will meet the right guy when she is ready," the source continued. "It's hard for her family when she is upset.

"They love her so much. Khloé is such a strong person though. She has already moved on after finding out that Tristan was expecting another baby."

Tristan shared a public apology to Khloe on Tuesday 4 January as he revealed he was the father of Maralee's child.

In two Instagram story posts, Tristan wrote: "Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols.

"I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son."

He then added: "I sincerely apologize to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately."

He then spoke directly to his ex-girlfriend Khloe as he wrote: "Khloe, you don't deserve this. 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 loved up with the way I view you.
