It’s been a very interesting year for Khloé Kardashian. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star welcomed her first child, True Thompson, into the world in April 2018. Unfortunately, True’s birth came on the heels of Kardashian’s then-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson’s rampant and very public infidelity. Though the Good American designer and Thompson tried to make their relationship work for a time –things blew up again in Feb. 2019 when Thompson publicly flirted with and kissed Kardashian family friend, Jordyn Woods.
When the scandal broke, Kardashian tried to put all of the blame on Woods for “breaking up her family.” However, after a severe dragging across the internet and coming to her senses, Kardashian realized Thompson was never going to be faithful. Since then, the KUWTK star has focused on motherhood, her business, and trying to co-parent with the NBA star. This past weekend the former couple celebrated True’s first birthday. However, in the midst of posting the gorgeous photos from the festivities –Kardashian made her Instagram account private.
Why did Khloé Kardashian make her Instagram private for just one day?
The entire Kardashian/Jenner clan has been in the spotlight since their reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians debuted in 2007. They’ve also leveraged social media to sell everything from “detox tea” to teeth whiteners and everything in between. Since they’ve fiercely defended their product peddling and very public life — and they get paid well over six figures for their endorsements –fans were shocked when Khloé Kardashian randomly made her IG account private.
On Tuesday, April 16, 2019 –Kardashian locked down her IG account to anyone that wasn’t one of her 91 million followers. Just before locking down her account, Kardashian posted a stream of quotes on her IG stories which moved fans to believe she was going through a bit of a rough time. She posted, “People hate when you show them how it feels to be treated the way they treat you.” Another quote said, “Don’t kill people with kindness because not everyone deserves your kindness. Kill people with your silence because not everyone deserves your attention.” Many people thought Kardashian was referring to her (awkward) reunion with Thompson at True’s bday party.
Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson were extremly awkward at True’s birthday party
Considering how abysmal the last year of their relationship has been, it’s no wonder that Kardashian and Thompson are uncomfortable around each other. However, they seem determined to co-parent successfully for True’s sake. Still, at the adorable baby’s bday party they had more than one awkward moment. At one point Kardashian straight up ignore Thompson after he asked her, “You okay, momma?” He tried to reach for True, and though Kardashian turned towards him, she didn’t acknowledge him.
Later while singing “Happy Birthday” the NBA baller clutched on to his daughter while Kardashian stood a mile away. It seems like Kardashian was just trying to deal with her emotions privately, so she decided to limit her world to her 90+ million followers –at least for a day.
We just hope that she knows it’s also OK to log off altogther or even delete her IG profile for awhile if she wants to focus on herself.
