Kim Kardashian opened up about why she “had to” confront her sister’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson about his “awkward” decision to block her on Instagram.
Last week, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star put sister Khloé Kardashian‘s boyfriend Tristan Thompson on blast on social media for blocking her on social media amid his cheating scandal.
“I had to do it,” she told Extra while hosting her KKW Beauty pop-up shop at Westfield Century City mall in Los Angeles. “I had to!”
The 37-year-old mother of three was the most vocal member of the family following the shocking revelation that Tristan cheated on 34-year-old Khloe during her pregnancy with their daughter True.
Kim said it was so “so f—ed up,” that the 27-year-old NBA player would cheat on her sister while she was pregnant. Tristan replied by blocking her on Instagram. However, all is well now. While celebrating Khloé’s birthday last week, Kim playfully teased Thompson about the block and posted the videos on her Instagram story to prove that they’re moving on.
“I did [the video] just spur-of-the-moment,” she told Extra. “I thought about it, I was like, ‘Wait a minute, you have your phone out and this is really awkward ’cause you blocked me. … We’re all in the same room again, can I get a follow, can I get an unblock at least?’ ”
Kim also touched on why she’s such a protective sister.
“I was just raised, you know, that blood is thicker than water and family first,” she said. “And that’s also what keeps us sane. When we have those family dinners and we just get to hang out and be together through all the craziness that we’ve been through, we love each other and support each other, so it’s always just fun to be together and no matter what we’ll support each other, and we know that.”
According to PEOPLE, Khloe’s family members all “respect her decision” to stay with Tristan following the nasty cheating scandal.
“Everyone knows Khloé plans on staying with Tristan, so things have been civil so far,” the source said. “They still have opinions about Tristan’s bad behavior, of course, but no one wants to upset Khloé.”
Another source told PEOPLE that Khloe’s sisters have “jokingly” been giving Thompson “a bit of a hard time” about his alleged infidelity now that he and Khloé are back in Los Angeles for the summer.
“But otherwise, everyone is being respectful and focusing on catching up with Khloé,” said the source. “Khloé is so happy being a mom. Everyone just wants her to stay in this happy bubble for as long as possible.”
