The family's reaction to the scandal was shown on the Sunday, November 4, episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and it was not pretty or easy to watch.

E! shared a preview clip of when sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Kourtney and Kim Kardashian first saw the video of the NBA star kissing another woman just days before Khloé gave birth. In the preview for the episode, they worried that the Good American founder, who was expecting her first child at the time, would go into labor due to the stress of finding out that her boyfriend had been unfaithful.

The sisters shared the article on their family group chat and were all seemingly "shocked" by the news.

Kim was the one who sent the rest of her sisters, minus Khloé, the news article that had video of the basketball player appearing to kiss a girl at a nightclub in New York City in April, the weekend prior to his girlfriend's due date. Khloé had moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where he lives, to give birth. Kendall was totally surprised and said: "I'm, like, in shock right now. I don't even know what to say. What a f--cking idot! It's a sick joke."  


Kourtney was "disgusted" at how reckless the athlete had been with his cheating.

"I can't even imagine being in Khloé shoes, just how, like, reckless it all seems," the mom of three said about the situation. "This is really shocking and obviously heartbreaking. The whole thing makes me disgusted."


It was Kylie who had to break the news to her big sister.

"No one had the courage to tell Khloé because we knew she was days away from giving birth, we didn't want to stress her out but we knew it was the right thing to do, so I'm the one who told Khloé," Kylie said. "I didn't want to hurt her feelings but I felt like she should hear from one of us versus on the internet." 

Kim was heartbroken for her little sister and feared that she would go into early labor.

“She’s confused, she doesn’t know what to do and we don’t really know what to do, but we want to be there for her,” Kim said in the episode. “Honestly, I’m in shock. We love Tristan. This is honestly nothing that we suspected. We thought she finally found her Prince Charming, [her] happy ending. And then f--k. It’s just, why her? It just really, really sucks.” Kim also added that at first she was skeptical and thought perhaps it was a misunderstanding, until more stories of him being unfaithful started to surface, so she told Khloé it wasn't worth staying in the relationship. "Honestly, so many more stories are coming out,” she said on the show. “So many friends are calling me with so many more things. I told her, ‘What are you going to get out of him? Think about it. You’re going to be worried and nervous and have an insecure life, because if he’s not faithful now, he’ll never change.’ “


The family, who lives in California, rushed to Khloé's side after she went into labor.

Just days after the first story was published, Khloé went into labor and she was in Cleveland by herself. Prior to that, in the episode, she called Kim crying telling her that she wanted to fly back home to Los Angeles, but she was too far into her pregnancy to travel. Kim told her to be calm and just worry about herself and Koko responded, "I can't be calm. Not right now."


In the episode, before her sisters arrived Khloé let them know that Tristan would be in the delivery room.

She told her sisters at the time that she didn't want any negativity in the delivery room or for anyone to talk about the situation or to make him or her feel uncomfortable. They agreed but acknowledged how difficult it would be. Yikes! Later on Sunday after the episode aired, Khloé defended her decision to allow Tristan to be there even though she had kicked him out of their house. "I chose to put my feelings aside for the birth and to try and have as much positive energy that I could. My only thought was about the birth of my daughter. I wasn’t going to let ANYONE disrupt anything less than what she deserved," she also tweeted. " I know now, looking back that I was in shock because I couldn’t believe that this would ever happen to me but I’m still very proud of myself for how I handled everything. True gave me the peace and strength I needed."


Khloé shared a preview of the episode on Instagram in a now-deleted post and shared her thoughts in the caption.

The reality TV star opened up about how difficult it was for her to watch the episode with her Instagram post, and we can only imagine how she felt. Cameras were not filming Khloé at the time and she said it was because she was on "maternity leave" from the show so they didn't capture her reaction to the news. Finding out that somebody cheated on you is rough, finding out that you were cheated on and the whole world knows? That makes the situation even worse.
