Tristan Thompson appears to be continuing to rebuild his relationship with Khloé Kardashian following their split in 2018.

Hours before the birth of the couple’s daughter in May that year, videos surfaced on TMZ and the Daily Mail of the athlete getting cosy with several other women, ultimately resulting in the demise of the pair’s relationship.

The athlete added fuel to the fire of continual cheating rumours when Kylie Jenner’s former best friend Jordyn Woods kissed Thompson following a night out in Los Angeles last year.

However, in recent months it seems that the basketball player has done his upmost to rekindle at the very least his friendship with the reality star, with whom he co-parents their child, True.

In the past year alone, the 29-year-old has left several 'thirsty' comments on his ex's Instagram photos and spoken publicly of his love for the star on her 36th birthday.

We've rounded up everything the couple have said about each other since their split in 2017:

November 2020: Khloé Kardashian Admits She Doesn’t Know Whether To Get Back With Tristan Thompson

Khloé Kardashian has opened up about her conflicted feelings over reconciling with her ex boyfriend and the father of her daughter.

In a newly-released clip of season 19 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the Good American co-founder opened up to her friend Malika Haqq about her relationship with Thompson during lockdown in the US.

‘We're in a really good place,’ the reality star began. ‘He's been super helpful and, when I was isolated, he would help with so many responsibilities.

‘His energy is different. He'll like touch my shoulders or something. I'm like, “Ok, you're getting a little too touchy”. He's like, “I just want you to know, if ever you are thinking the same thing, I'm here for you”. Basically.’

When Haqq notes that the basketball player is still ‘in love’ with Kardashian, the mother-of-one admitted she is at odds with knowing what to do in the situation.

‘I feel a little more pressured. Even my family's like, “So, are you guys sleeping together or not?” I'm like, “No, we're not”. He's never said, “I need an answer.” But, I always feel like he needs an answer as to like what we are doing.’

The star noted to camera: ‘I just feel like it's been over a year since we broke up and, now that we're hanging out more, I can tell he's getting antsy.’

The fashion mogul added that she wishes she had a ‘definitive answer on [her] end’.

‘I wish I either said, “All these feelings for Tristan, I just am afraid” or “Gosh, I don't have any feelings”,’ she explained. ‘I don't even know how to get a feeling back. Any feeling.’

She later noted: ‘Every relationship I go in to, they’re always disappointing and f*cked up. So, I have every reason to be guarded. I have every reason to have these bricks up and layers.’

Khloé Kardashian Shuts Down Pregnancy Speculation… Again

Days after Khloé and Tristan dressed up as Cleopatra and Mark Antony, respectively, for Halloween, the reality star was soon bombarded with fan speculation that she might be pregnant.

After sharing photos of her in her Halloween costume, one Twitter user commented on social media: ‘Idc I'm still convinced @khloekardashian is going to tell us in a couple months that she's pregnant. [sic]’

The fashion mogul soon responded to rumours that she was expecting her second child, noting: ‘Well my abs say otherwise babe.’

For several months, fans have become convinced that the former couple have rekindled their romance, especially after numerous comments have been made from the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star’s family members about their relationship.

During a recent episode of The Ellen DeGeneres show, the mother-of-one opened up about co-parenting her daughter True with Tristan.

‘It's one of the hardest things I think I've ever done,’ the 36-year-old told the show’s host. ‘Because you have your own personal feelings. But when you can put those aside and you just put your child first. I mean, it sounds great when you're all in love and everything, but when you go through something, it's such a challenge. But to do it, I know how good I feel about it.’

The post begins: ‘You know why marriages used to work and they don’t now? 25 years ago we weren’t texting our exes at 2am. We weren’t sending sexy selfies to friends of the opposite sex. We weren’t texting 50 people in our phone instead of cuddling on the couch with our partner.’

Another post reads: ‘He’s definitely a red flag but red my fav colour so what it do baaaabbyyy.’

‘You're going to see that in the first episode [of Keeping Up With The Kardashians], really how we even came to the point where I even invited Tristan to her first birthday. I always wanted that to be obviously a mommy and daddy thing. In my family it is everyone who is going through this breakup.

‘So I knew in my family it was going to be a lot of high tension, but I still wanted to do what was best for True.’
