However, despite their circumstances as a former couple, family always comes first for Khloe, especially considering Tristan, 32, and his brother Amari, 17, (who suffers from epilepsy) moved in with her temporarily shortly after their mom Andrea Thompson‘s passing.
“No matter what, we’re not a family of, ‘eye for an eye,’ especially in times of need,” she tells Tristan, who is also dad to Prince, 6, with ex Jordan Craig. “That’s when you rally together and I want to be good for the lifetimes after this. I want my karma just to always be great. And I’m not justifying anything you’ve done. I mean, obviously everything you did, it was f–ked up and I’m strong enough that it’s not going to break me.”
In fact, she explains that if Tristan does think that they’re meant to be, then their split should have that much more of an impact.
“If what you say is true if you really thought I was your person or whatever you just said,” Khloe tells him, “then that means you’ll feel that much more affected by losing me and want to change, for yourself—not because there’s a prize at the end of it. We’re going to be in each other’s lives for the rest of each other’s lives because of our kids, so I’m not going to fight that and I’m going to make sure it’s as nice as possible, for me.”
