Khloe Kardashian has spoken out about how painful it is when women are blamed for their unfaithful partners’ actions in a new interview with Variety. As you may be aware, Khloe has been in several unhealthy romantic relationships in the public eye — from her destructive marriage with Lamar Odom due to his infidelity and abuse of substances, to the on-and-off relationship with father of her daughter True, NBA player Tristan Thompson. The pro hooper was accused of cheating multiple times — even while Khloe was pregnant with their now-3-year-old daughter.
Earlier this year, when news broke that Tristan had fathered another child during his and Khloe’s relationship, many comments online were quick to berate the reality star for his behavior. Now, speaking out about the subject with Variety, Khloe said that she finds it “really hurtful” to put the blame on a woman whose partner has cheated.
“If your significant other is doing something wrong, for the woman to be blamed, that’s always been really hurtful for me,” she said. “I’ve never quite understood that instead of there being some sympathy or like, ‘Wow, that must really suck to have to go through that.’ And not only go through it, but then go through it so publicly. I don’t even care if people have sympathy. I just don’t understand why there’s so much finger-pointing — like it must be me. That’s a heavy thing to carry.”
If it weren’t for her own infamous slandering of Jordyn Woods back in 2018 during the cheating scandal with Tristan, Khloe’s point would normally be well-received. However, many people haven’t forgotten that Khloe was quick to place blame solely on Jordyn rather than Tristan, accusing her of “lying” and being the sole reason her family “broke up” in a harsh public tweet after Jordyn gave an interview about the incident.
“Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!” Khloe tweeted at Jordyn in March 2019.

Fans are now questioning Khloe’s stance about blaming women for the actions of unfaithful men, arguing that she did not have the same take throughout the scandal with Jordyn and Tristan. See what Twitter users had to say about Khloe’s comments below:
