‘Twas the night before Christmas when all through L.A., every celebrity gathered to Kim Kardashian’s house for the Kardashian Family’s annual Christmas Eve party.
Every Kardashian-Jenner was in attendance and shared countless pictures from the event, giving fans a sneak peek at Kardashian’s lavish decorations and festive holiday-themed goodies and activities. But, their snapshots also revealed something major–that Tristan Thompson wasn’t there!
So, why wasn’t Khloé Kardashian’s boyfriend at the party? Here’s the scoop:
Who would want to miss a party this amazing? Well, a source close to Thompson revealed that he had a very good reason for skipping the festivities, explaining that the basketball player "doesn't have a lot of flexibility" in his game schedule and couldn't make it.
But, it looks like Kardashian and Thompson already planned this out. The insider told E! News that the long-distance couple anticipated spending the holidays separately and split up the major holidays to ensure that their eight-month-old daughter True would see both sides of the family. They arranged to spend Thanksgiving with Thompson's family in Cleveland, leaving Christmas free for Kardashian to celebrate with her family.
"Khloe wanted to be in L.A. with her family for Christmas," the source shared. "There was nothing more special than seeing True with her cousins on Christmas morning. There was no way she was going to miss the family Christmas Eve party and being a part of opening presents all together on Christmas morning."
Fans speculated that Thompson missed the party because there's trouble in paradise for the couple. After all, it's no secret that Kardashian and Thompson have had a rocky year.
Thompson was in the middle of a very public cheating scandal this past April, where videos surfaced of the NBA player making out with several women at a club. Kardashian and Thompson have worked hard to repair their relationship, which Kardashian has opened up about on her show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
