Kris Jenner Gets Choked Up Discussing Khloé Kardashian's Cheating Scandal

In April, even the all-knowing Kris Jenner was thrown for a loop when footage of Khloé Kardashian’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson getting intimate with an Instagram model circulated online.

Of course, it being a scandal tied to the world’s most famous family, the drama was compounded when Khloé gave birth to Tristan’s child mere days after the allegations broke.

The Kardashian-Jenners have been careful to comment on the delicate situation in the past weeks. However, both Kim and Kris appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres show this week, and neither avoided the topic.

On Monday’s episode, Kim bluntly called the situation “so f—ked up,” explaining to DeGeneres that she’s trying to “keep it classy” when it comes to her comments, considering that Baby True is involved.

In an episode set to air on Friday, matriarch and momager Kris weighed in on the situation as well, maintaining that the scandal was “very unexpected.”

“Khloé is amazing,” she continued. “I’m so proud of that kid. I get choked up because she’s such a good mom and honestly I get so emotional.”

“I was in Cleveland last week, it was snowing, and she was all nestled in the nursery and the baby. She’s just concentrating on that, just being a mom, her baby and I think that’s what her sisters are doing as well. She's so excited about motherhood and trying to get the nursing thing down, which is a little tricky.”

“She’s figuring it out one day at a time,” Kris explained, “and she’s just the best mom already, and that baby is so cute—little True.”

When asked about her emotional reaction to the disappointing Tristan news, Kris says she and the family operated out of a place of love for Khloé.

"I think we do what we always do and that’s spring into action with love," Kris said. "We all hopped on a plane and flew to Cleveland because that’s what we know to do. I’m there to support my kids no matter what happens. I just do the best I can, just like anybody else would for their family. There’s a lot of us, and we all get together and we do things together and we’re a force to be reckoned with."

Honestly, we can't think of anyone we'd rather have in our corner than Kris Jenner.
