To be fair, it’s not debilitatingly awkward. In fact, Kim even says in the video that she’s keeping her anger contained to be supportive of Khloé through her birth. (If you forget, news of Tristan cheating on Khloé broke just days before she gave birth.) That being said, it’s still uncomfortable to watch.
It all went down in Khloés delivery room at a Cleveland, Ohio hospital. Kim, Kourtney, and Kris arrived just in the nick of time for Khloé’s birth, meanwhile Tristan had been there for a little longer. When Kim walks past Tristan to use the bathroom, she can’t help but make shady, hilarious faces behind his back.
“Are you gonna say hi to each other or no?” Khloé asks Kim, causing her to give Tristan a terse and icy embrace. “Hi,” Kim says, plastering on a fake smile.
Watch this go down for yourself, below:
“The vibe in the room is calm,” Kim says. “I thought there would be way more tension. As much as I want to go off, I just don’t think it’s the time. So I’m gonna keep it cute. I don’t have to have a lot of interaction. I just have to be there for [Khloé].”
However, Kim didn’t mince words about Tristan when she appeared on the Ellen show shortly after Khloé welcomed her daughter, True. “I don’t even know how to describe it besides it’s just so fucked up,” she said. “We really were rooting for Khloé—and we still are. She’s so strong, and she’s doing the best that she can.”
