KHLOE Kardashian has opened up about how she’s changed since her ex Tristan Thompson’s multiple cheating scandals.
Khloe, 37, and Tristan, 31, parted ways after the NBA star confirmed he fathered a child with a fitness trainer, Maralee Nichols, while exclusively dating the star.
The Good American Founder got candid about her feelings in an interview with Amanda Hirsch on Tuesday’s episode of the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast.
When asked about her seemingly changed attitude and why things affect her more than they used to, Khloe explained that online trolls play a large part in her confidence.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum mentioned that social media was non-existent when the former E! series began, and people didn’t “have access to giving you a narrative” as they do now.
She also acknowledged that her public hardships with baby daddy Tristan due to his infidelity altered her mindset.
“The past couple years, it’s definitely taken a shift. I don’t know if it has to do with maybe, like, stuff between me and Tristan, I’m not sure if that maybe broke my confidence, and then everything else piled on, and then I just, it was like hard to shake it off.
“I don’t know. But like, that’s kind of the timeline, I think. But I’m trying to work on it,” Khloe said.
The Hulu star also admitted she “misses the old her” and wishes she was as carefree as she used to be, but the media has made that difficult.
“I, like, miss the old me, I miss even just like how I overthink everything now, and how before, like, things used to be a lot more fun.

“Like whether it be posting or doing silly videos, and now like the smallest thing gets taken and shredded apart, and it wasn’t even like that.”
She continued: “Or like, doing interviews, I’m so hesitant to do them because people take 20-second clips to do a TikTok video, and then that’s out of context, and then it turns into this viral thing, and I’m like if you caught the first five minutes you’d understand why I said that.
“Now we’re always stuck explaining ourselves, and I think the world is so eager to cancel people these days… we’re always on guard these days, and it’s just not fun.”
On numerous occasions, Khloe’s relationship made headlines because of Tristan’s unfaithful ways.
The athlete was caught hooking up with Khloe’s sister Kylie Jenner’s BFF, Jordyn Woods, in 2019, causing a rift between the pair.
Jordyn was exiled from the famous family, while Tristan remained in the picture since Khloe was pregnant with their now four-year-old daughter, True.
News also broke that Tristan had cheated with multiple women after photos surfaced of him kissing a random woman at a New York City club.
The couple later rekindled their romance, though they broke up once again after Maralee, 31, revealed she was pregnant with Tristan’s third child.
Tristan had an affair with Maralee when he was supposedly mutually exclusive with Khloe.
The fitness model welcomed their son, Theo, in December 2021.
Tristan apologized to Khloe in a lengthy Instagram post, but the Revenge Body star remained firm on her decision and did not take him back.
The exes, however, have maintained a co-parenting relationship for the sake of their daughter.
Khloe explained on the podcast: “He’s always going to be in my life because of True, and he’s a great dad, and that’s really all I need to focus on is his relationship with True.
“I just appreciate that we get along really well… we talk because of True, she has a routine, and we like, Facetime him every night, she Facetimes him every night, and it’s just very, like, cordial.
There’s just not drama like, to me, the facts are the facts; what are we continuously fighting about? What is there to talk about? I know everything; I don’t need to know everything, but I know all the facts, and that’s enough for me; I’m like, that’s it.”
While Khloe has been putting on a brave face for her family, she hinted at her heartbreak on social media on Monday.
The TV star shared a screenshot on her Instagram Stories of someone Googling: “Can you ever stop loving someone.”
The response Google came up with was: “You never stop loving. Once you love someone honestly, truly, you will never be able to un-love them.
“You only find someone who will love you more. At that time your old love will not feel so strong, but it is a heart, it will never let you forget something that ever made you happy.”
Khloe posted the quote on her Stories without a caption.
After seeing the post, her followers flooded Reddit with their concern, with one writing: “I actually feel bad for Koko.
“She honestly needs someone that can love her fully, make her happy and give her a new life.”

“I hope she has support…. I love koko…” another posted, while a third wrote, “Really doesn’t seem like she’s okay.”
In addition to his daughter, True, with Khloe, and son, Theo, with Maralee, Tristan is also a dad to a 5-year-old son, Prince, with his ex Jordan Craig.
