Khloé Kardashian‘s situation with Tristan Thompson is “really sad,” says sister Kim Kardashian West.
In a newly released sneak peek at her upcoming appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kim, 37, addresses the family drama that imploded earlier this month when allegations surfaced that Thompson, 27, cheated on Khloé, 33, throughout her pregnancy. The news broke just days before Khloé gave birth to a baby girl, True Thompson, on April 12.
“Poor Khloé,” says Kim, at a loss for words. “Like, I don’t even know how to describe it besides it’s just so f—ed up.”
“We really were rooting for Khloé. And we still are,” she adds. “She’s so strong and she’s doing the best that she can. It’s a really sad situation, all over.”
But for the sake of her 15-day-old niece, Kim says she’s doing her best to take the high road.
“I kind of made this rule with my brother [Rob Kardashian] — if there’s a baby involved, I’m going to keep it cute and keep it classy and not talk too bad,” she explains. “Well, I’m going to try not to say anything so negative because one day, True is going to see this and you know, it’s so messed up.”
