Khloé Kardashian can't seem to catch a break. The episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that centers on her ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal with Jordyn Woods aired on Sunday, June 23, and it was packed with a lot more drama than expected. It focused mostly on Khloé's reaction and how she had to deal with Tristan telling her he would "kill himself" because he was so disappointed in himself for hurting her. Yikes!

News broke in February that Kylie Jenner's longtime best friend had been seen getting cozy with Khloé's man at a party. The famous family along with the rest of the world was shocked when the story came out, since Jordyn had been a part of the family for years. The scandal ended Khloé's relationship with the basketball star, with whom she shares daughter True, and now the Revenge Body host was forced to relive the emotional situation on the E! reality show.

Khloé claimed that Tristan had said he might do something to hurt himself.

Khloé said that Tristan had admitted to cheating on her with Jordyn, saying that they had been all over each other at a party and even "made out." In the midst of the cheating scandal, Khloé said that Tristan told her that he would "kill himself" because she wasn't responding to his messages.

"He's doing this to get a reaction out of me," she told Scott Disick, her sister's ex. "So I'm just allowed to say 'I'm going to kill myself' and it'll be fine? That's crazy." Scott told Khloé that she shouldn't make it harder on herself and that if Tristan wants to be with other people, she should just let him go.


She then asked a friend to check in on Tristan.

While dealing with her own pain and hurt from the betrayal, Khloé called Tristan's best friend, Savas Oguz, and asked him to check on the basketball player after he threatened to hurt himself. Savas called Khloé to let her know that he had gone to see Tristan and he had said he was "good." After witnessing the phone call, Scott pointed out during a confessional interview that he feels bad and how "unfair" it is for Khloé because she is still putting her pain aside to make sure her then-boyfriend was OK. 


The episode captured the way Khloé processed the situation.

The sisters confronted Jordyn, who didn't give them much information about what went down between her and the Cleveland Cavaliers player at an All Star Weekend party in his house. Kylie's friendship with Jordyn ended after the ordeal, while Khloé was disappointed that someone she considered a little sister would do something to hurt her and her family this way. 

Khloé did not go on Twitter while the episode aired on E! on Sunday.

While the sisters usually live-tweet their show's episodes and chat with fans, the Good American founder let fans know she would be skipping out this week for obvious reasons. "Well needless to say I won’t be live chatting next week. Sorry guys," she tweeted last week. Kim continued to have conversations with fans and explained why they showed the messy situation on their show. 


Fans weren't too pleased to hear that Tristan had made threats of injuring himself.

Any time someone makes threats to injure themselves, it should be taken seriously, and Khloé did the right thing by checking in on Tristan. Some fans weren't as compassionate, pointing out how "toxic" it is for someone to do wrong and make threats with something so serious in order to get a reaction or forgiveness out of the person they hurt. One fan tweeted photos of Tristan out and about with a new girl in New York City when the whole situation was unfolding.

While Khloé was concerned with Tristan's well-being, the sisters expressed how angry they were at Jordyn.

Khloé showed a lot of compassion for the father of her child during the ordeal, and while she wasn't ready to talk to him about the situation, she did make sure he was well. She also attempted to talk to Jordyn, and the 21-year-old wasn't as responsive, which only made Khloé even angrier at her. 


A lot of fans joined the conversation, and called the family out for being so one-sided with their anger.

Some people pointed out about the lack of concern the sisters displayed for Jordyn's well-being after all they said about her during Sunday's episode. While someone saying he is contemplating suicide is a serious issue, someone as young as Jordyn could also be deeply impacted by seeing her mistakes be shown on national television.
