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 years 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 recent years, the 30-year-old has left several 'thirsty' comments on his ex's Instagram photos and spoken publicly of his love for the star.

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

May 2022: The Kardashians shows the awkward moment Tristan Thompson tells Khloé Kardashian 'you're never leaving me'

Episode seven of Hulu show The Kardashians revealed that Kardashian and Thompson reconciled around the time that her sister Kourtney got engaged to Travis Barker.

Though the pair are understood to have broken up again in January, Thompson's presence is consistent in the earlier episodes of the series, filmed last October.

And not only that - it captures the moment she learns that Thompson had fathered a third child, with Maralee Nichols.

The trailer for the episode also showed Kardashian and Thompson having a conversation while working out on treadmills together, which hasn't been well-received by fans.

Referring to her sister's former partners, she tells Thompson: 'Scott is never leaving. Kanye is never leaving. Looks like you're never leaving.'

Thompson responds: 'More like you're never leaving me,' to which Kardashian says: 'Oh, okay.'

Unimpressed viewers have aired their thoughts, including one person who tweeted: 'It’s not even funny anymore please [sic].'

Another wrote: 'Tristan "more like ur never leaving me" HES NOT EVEN ASHAMED [sic].'

A third shared a meme of Good Girls star Retta looking dumfounded and remarked: 'Me the entire time when Tristan and Khloe were having a conversation.'

May 2022: The Kardashians producer on being present when Khloé Kardashian learned of Tristan Thompson's infidelity

The Kardashians producer Danielle King has opened up to US Weekly about how involved her team are in the Kardashian and Jenner family's lives, revealing that they shoot 'five days a week, Monday through Friday'.

'But that’s not always what we stick to. Oftentimes on the weekend, they’ll text or call or they’ll say something’s going on so my crew will rally and will get to whatever they’re doing. It’s a set schedule, but we also leave a lot of room for spontaneity,' she added.

On filming Khloé's reaction to learning of Thompson's infidelity, King added: 'Well, for that particular moment, my crew was there.

'We were there to film something else early in the morning, and the morning that news broke, we legitimately just happened to be there. We have that moment on camera. And I know sometimes it’s tough for the audience to kind of grasp like "Oh, did they go back and did they capture this?" But there were so many moments that we genuinely captured just because we’re almost always there. There’s almost always a camera going.'

The current season of the new series shows events that took place in October 2021, however, following months of rumours, in April 2022 Thompson confirmed speculation he fathered a third child with personal trainer Maralee Nichols.

Last month Kardashian discussed filming the moment she learned of her ex's infidelity during an interview with USA Today, noting: 'When you're hurt so many times–your reactions, your responses to the same thing happening over and over again–there is a numbing sensation to it.'

While some of the more heartbreaking moments 'are a bit shocking', she noted that 'you’re not really focused on the filming of it at all until you watch it back'.

March 2022: Khloé Kardashian recalls Tristan Thompson cheating on her

After it was reported that Kardashian was 'on the dating scene', the Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian star spoke of her desires in a relationship.

Speaking on a special episode of ABC News, she said: 'I think at the end of the day, all of us aspire to have blissfulness. We want to feel happy, we want to feel safe.'

She then went on to explain that she once felt that way with Thompson.

'With Tristan, I did feel incredibly safe in the beginning and I felt really good for a time,' she said.

Kardashian, however, also brought up the shattering side of their relationship.

'I remember when he cheated on me right before I gave birth and I was able to still have him in the delivery room,' she began. 'So yes, it might have looked strange to the outside world, but when my daughter watches my home videos, those videos are going to be as pure and perfect as I was able to make them.'

She added: 'I still think he's a great guy, and he's a great dad. He's just not the guy for me.'

In an interview published in December with i-D the mother-of-four - who has announced that she's passed the 'baby bar' - opened up about her recent SNL monologue, revealing that she took out a joke about her sister Khloé and Thompson's relationship.

'Everyone in the family was just like, "You can do whatever you want",' she told the publication. 'Everyone was really easy and game for me to do whatever I wanted. Although I had a really funny joke about Tristan and Khloé that I took out — I could've maybe gone further.' The reality star didn't elaborate on the joke.

The star continued, noting: 'But everyone was like, "Use me. Do whatever you want. This is your time." They were down. That was super cool.'

The news comes weeks after Thompson was reported to be allegedly expecting his third child, according to claims in court documents obtained by DailyMail.com. ELLE UK has reached out to Thompson's representatives for comment.

‘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.’

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 to do it, I know how good I feel about it.’
