Khloé Kardashian gave Tristan Thompson more chances than he deserved, but after his latest baby scandal, The Kardashians star ultimately put her own mental well-being first. Fans found out about Tristan’s paternity scandal in December and during the Season 1 finale of The Kardashians, fans got to watch the famous family hear the news for the first time. Khloé took the news very hard, confessing to her sister Kendall Jenner that she passed out due to all the anxiety and strong emotions she was dealing with. She was especially upset because earlier in the season it was clear that she and Tristan were on the verge of getting back together.
During The Kardashians Season 2 premiere Khloé announced the news that broke in July that she was having a second baby with Tristan via surrogate. According to Khloé, Tristan had encouraged her to follow the plan before news broke that he had impregnated personal trainer Maralee Nichols. She had told her family about the second baby while filming the Season 1 finale, but it was not included in the episode to respect her privacy. However, the remainder of the second season takes place six months before the season premiere is filmed.
After taking Tristan back, despite his many infidelity scandals, The Kardashians star finally took the initiative to improve his mental health. Scandal was the final straw for Khloé, and no matter how much she wanted things to work out between her and Tristan, especially for the sake of their children, she knew she would only hurt herself if she was coming back to him. She admitted in several interviews while promoting her Hulu reality series that she and Tristan were done for good this time. It was even reported that she would be willing to move on to someone else if she met the right person. However, other reports indicated that Khloé remained single for a while and focused on herself and her own happiness. In the second episode of The Kardashians season 2, Kendall inspired her sister to go see Dr. Daniel Amen, a famous celebrity doctor known for working with stars like Miley Cyrus.
Daniel has spoken about his brain scanning process in numerous interviews and has written several books on the brain, including The End of Mental Illness and You, happier. Kendall received a brain scan from Daniel, which revealed a lot of activity in her brain that is causing her to feel a lot of anxiety. Khloé’s analysis revealed that she suffered from many traumas, both physical and emotional. The star admitted that she suffered head injuries several times, including in a car accident when she flew through the windshield. The emotional trauma was linked to her father, Robert Kardashian, who died when she was just 19, and her traumatic marriage to NBA player Lamar Odom, who struggled with drug addiction. Talking to Daniel and getting the brain scan was very beneficial to Khloé’s mental health, and it was the first time she really committed to stepping up and healing instead of trying to make the things work. things with someone who kept hurting her.
The Kar-Jenner family and fans have watched Khloé take second place for years. She was always the most reserved member of the family and had the hardest time dealing with her emotions. She is also far too willing to put others before herself. Luckily, Tristan’s latest mistake spurred her to finally take steps to improve her mental health, and Kendall knew exactly how to help her. With a bit of luck, The Kardashians star is staying on track by putting himself first this time.
The Kardashians airs Thursdays on Hulu.
