Kourtney Kardashian is speaking openly about where she stands with serial cheater Tristan Thompson.

Tristan, who is dating her younger sister Khloe Kardashian, has been caught with his pants down on several occasions in the past. 

His last dalliance saw him impregnating another woman - mere hours after Khloe threw him a lavish 30th birthday party in March 2021, nogal! 

Speaking on the latest episode of 'The Kardashians', Kourtney reveals that she is not Tristan's biggest fan. 

Her daughter, Penelope, is not 'Team Tristan' either. "I feel like she gets it from me," Kourtney says. 

The reality star adds: "I told her the first day of school, I was so like triggered by him. I know why, but I feel like we all brush it off and are fine, and then I was just so triggered and I was like, 'I just can't do it anymore.'" 

The 44-year-old, who is expecting her first child with her husband Travis Barker, tells Penelope on the episode that Khloe will be coming over to their home with Tristan.

While Khloe claims they are no longer together, they spend a lot of time together as co-parents of their children True and Tatum. 

Kourtney asked Penelope, who she shares with Scott Disick, if she was fine with Tristan's visit. 


Despite her feelings about Tristan, Kourtney says she tries to keep things cordial.

"Tristan has made horrible decisions and choices, you know, with my sister. There's times when I'm so triggered by him I can't be around him and then there's times when I just let it go because we just want harmony and, you know, he's the father of my niece and nephew," she said in a confessional. 

Kourtney's comments are a far cry from how her sister Kim Kardashian feels about Tristan. She defended Tristan in a previous episode, calling him a good father. 

This is despite the fact that he allegedly has nothing to do with his youngest son, Theo, and has been accused of not spending enough time with his older son, Prince. 

"When he saw me struggling with my kids, he stepped up. I'll never really throw someone away and act like I don't feel like they can't grow and evolve," Kim said on the show. 

Kris Jenner, the matriarch of the family, also appears to be 'Team Tristan'. 

"I really worry for Khloé that if Tristan does meet somebody one day and does move on, is she gonna regret not getting back with him fully in a monogamous relationship?” she said in a recent episode.
