Khloe Kardashian Not in 'Denial' Over Tristan Thompson Cheating Allegations (Exclusive)

By

Khloe Kardashian is still trying to "process" Tristan Thompson's cheating allegations.

A source tells ET that the new mom is not naive, she's just committed to her family right now.

"She's not in a bubble of denial," the source says. "She knows what's going on and is still trying to process it, but so far, she's managed to move past it and look forward."

The source tells us that because more women are coming out of the woodwork with new stories alleging they met up with the NBA star while Khloe was still pregnant, it's putting the Revenge Body star's friends and family members in an awkward position.

"Her friends and family are learning all these new details and it's hard to know what's just someone trying to cash in and what is true," the source says, adding that there are rumors of Tristan allegedly cheating on Khloe with at least five women, some claiming the affairs lasted multiple months, including the night before Khloe's baby shower. "It's tough to know what, if anything, to tell Khloe."

The source says there's a lot of chatter going on behind Khloe’s back and some people feel awful about keeping her in the dark. At the same time, however, many of them don't want to be the bearer of bad news.

"If a friend tells Khloe that they heard about another cheating story, they risk being cut off by her," the source claims. "She's stuck by her man in the past, so it doesn't even seem worth it to fill her in on all the details."

Amid all the drama, Khloe is still in Cleveland, where Tristan plays basketball for the Cavaliers and the city where she gave birth to their first child together, baby girl True. 

"Khloe is very settled in Cleveland right now and is planning on staying another few weeks to a month at least," the source says. "Of course, that could change, especially since every day there seems to be more stories [coming] out about Tristan."

An additional source told ET last week that Khloe is "torn" on what to do with Tristan, who is also the father to a 1-year-old son, Prince, from a previous relationship.

"Khloe loves him deeply. He is the father of her child, but she feels betrayed and blindsided," the source said at the time. "Khloe's main focus is being a mother and figuring out what is best for True."
