Khloé Kardashian admits she was “scared to go online” after Hulu debuted the second season of “The Kardashians.”
The reality star confessed that the Season 2 premiere was “one of the hardest episodes” she’s “ever shot” in a series of posts shared on Twitter over the weekend.
“I love you! I’m so consumed with overwhelming emotions from reading your tweets and commentary about the premiere episode,” Kardashian’s tweet spree began.
“I have to be honest I was scared to go online but friends and family kept telling me how loving and kind everybody was. I decided to take a look for myself.”
During the episode, fans watched as Kardashian grappled with the aftermath of discovering her on-again, off-again ex Tristan Thompson had not only fathered a child with another woman but was aware of it while he and Kardashian decided to move forward with having another baby together, this time via surrogate.
The episode culminated with the surrogate delivering a baby boy in July, to Kardashian’s elation. The Good American founder, 38, also shares 4-year-old daughter True with her NBA star ex, 31.
“As hesitant as I was to look [at the messages], I’m so grateful that I did! I’ve never seen so much love, kindness and empathy in a really long time on social media,” Kardashian gushed in another tweet, after initially staying off social media.
“Thank you all for being kind, supportive and loving. Thank you for being gentle and understanding.”
In a third and final tweet that day, Kardashian added, “Thank you for taking your time to watch regardless of what your feelings are towards me. I value and appreciate you all.”
Replies to the post expressed overwhelming support for Kardashian, given the gut-wrenching revelation that Thompson had fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. The fitness guru gave birth to a baby boy in December 2021, shortly after Kardashian’s surrogate became pregnant.
“I can’t imagine sharing my worst moments. I think you are amazing. And I’m sorry people think it’s okay to troll you and be hateful towards you. God has blessed you in so many ways. The father of my children was a dog to [sic]. I now have the most amazing husband. I hope you find love,” one wrote.
“No one should shame you for trusting a person you love. He is the one who should be ashamed,” another supporter tweeted.
As Page Six previously reported, Thompson conceived a child with Nichols while celebrating his 30th birthday in March 2021, when he and Kardashian were still together.
Nichols alleged in legal filings that she had been sleeping with Thompson for around “five months” prior to the athlete’s birthday. While Thompson initially denied the allegations, he owned up to the scandal – and publicly apologized to Kardashian – after a paternity test proved he was the father of Nichols’ baby.
