After weighing up her options, the reality TV star invited her cheating ex-boyfriend— and in an attempt to get ahead of the awkwardness, Khloe had Tristan come over the night before True's bash to clear the air. Within minutes of him arriving she knew she'd made a huge mistake when he tried to kiss her.
"He was like, 'Can I have a hug?' And then I one-arm hugged him and he was like, 'One? A one-handed hug?'" the Revenge Body host relayed to her shocked glam team.
"I was like, 'That's nice enough.' And then he tried to kiss me and I go, 'This is the problem with you. You can't just take what you get.'"
While she quickly pushed him off— later asking him if he thought she had a sign on her head that read "dumb f***ing wh*re"— Tristan continued to shower the mum-of-one in compliments.
"I just wanted him to know, 'I'm inviting you because you're True's dad and I do believe you should be there.' And I think that's the best choice for True, that's really it," Khloe admitted later on. "I don't want him to take it the wrong way. 'Cause, sometimes I feel like if I give an inch he takes a mile."
While she tried to remain calm and collected during the celebrations, the trailer ends with Khloe in tears when she discovers Tristan had complained to Kanye West— Kim Kardashian's husband— about his portrayal in the KUWTK season 16 promo trailer.
"We don't control the narrative," said Kim who shares four children with the "Gold Digger" rapper.
"Everyone thinks they're doing the right thing," Khloe concluded. "And I know everyone's intention is to help and be protective and all of that, but at True's birthday it's not the right timing."
