Kim Kardashian West has not directly responded to any of the allegations that Tristan Thompson has been cheating on her young sister, Khloé, but on Thursday, some eagle-eyed fans noticed that Kim’s latest Instagram move might be in response to the news.
The reality star had been posting bikini-clad photos of her trip to Turks and Caicos with sister Kourtney all week long, and the pictures didn’t stop when the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal made international headlines, or when Khloé was reportedly going into labor. In fact, many of the comments on her bikini photos were along the lines of, “Why are you on vacation instead of helping Khloé?”
As we now know, Kim was by her sister’s side during her delivery, and has continued to support her and her new baby girl. In typical Kardashian fashion, she was already back in the U.S. while rolling out the bikini-clad photos from the Caribbean on her Instagram feed. But on Thursday morning, fans noticed Kim deleted several of the sexy photographs from her feed with no explanation, leading them to believe that deleting the pics was her response to the backlash.
Finally, on Friday afternoon, we got some answers. The reality star took to Instagram to re-post a photo of herself and Kourtney in sexy bikinis, explaining why she deleted the pictures in the first place. “I deleted some vacation pics because I didn’t like the vibe on my page but I re-filtered them and reposting some!” she wrote. “I’m crazy about the vibe on my IG page. #PositiveVibesOnly.”
That last statement about positive vibes might be the most direct response we get from Kim about the Tristan Thompson cheating drama—at least until the episode airs on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. After all, the Kardashian-Jenners are nothing if not savvy businesswomen.
