Khloe Kardashian's reluctant relationship

Khloe Kardashian was "reluctant" to start a relationship with Tristan Thompson.

The 34-year-old beauty has hit back at claims she started dating the basketball player - with whom she has 14-month-old daughter True - while he was still romantically involved with Jordan Craig, the mother of his three-year-old son Prince, insisting he reassured her they were over after she expressed her doubts about getting together with someone who had a pregnant ex partner.

Khloe - who split with Tristan in February after he allegedly kissed family friend Jordyn Woods - wrote on her Instagram Story: "I'm disappointed about even needing to post this, but... I need to say my truth. Take it as you will.

"My truth is: I met Tristan because HE CHOSE to go on a blind date with me. A mutual friend set us up.

"After going on some dates, Tristan told me that he had an ex that was pregnant. Obviously, I was reluctant about us continuing to date or start a relationship.

"He pleaded with me that the relationship was over long before we met. He had me talk with his most inner circle.

"He showed [me] physical p(r)oof (correspondence between the two) and had me on calls with his lawyers to prove his point. His best friends, business associates and even his mother told me, him and his ex were broken up before we met. (sic)".

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star insisted she "believed and trusted" what she'd been told but apologised to Jordan if she'd unwittingly played a part in ending her relationship.

She continued: "This is my truth! The truth I believed and trusted. If for any reason this is NOT in fact the truth, I am so completely and utterly sorry that TRISTAN and his inner circle would lie on something like this!

"I pray my truth is in-fact that. Lord knows I pray but now, I really don't know what to believe. Truthfully, from the deepest parts of my soul I am sorry! I'm sorry for any pain that has been created either way.

"No woman deserves to go through anything like this! This is my TRUTH."
