A Wed­ding … and a TV Show

Khloé & Tris­tan Khloé Kar­dashian jumps back into mar­riage — and the re­al­ity TV spot­light — with NBA star Tris­tan Thompson

In Touch (USA) - - Couples News -

Khloé Kar­dashian moves fast. Barely three weeks af­ter meet­ing Cleve­land Cava­liers cen­ter Tris­tan Thompson at co­me­dian Kevin Hart’s Aug. 13 wed­ding, the re­al­ity star and the NBA player were pho­tographed house-hunt­ing in Bev­erly Hills be­fore jet­ting off to Mex­ico to­gether. Now just two months into their romance, In Touch has learned they’ve al­ready taken things to the next level. “Tris­tan got down on one knee and asked Khloé to marry him,” says an in­sider. “She’s de­lighted to be en­gaged and can’t wait to tie the knot early next year.”

Her fam­ily didn’t im­me­di­ately em­brace the happy news. “When Kris Jen­ner first found out, she went bal­lis­tic,” says the in­sider. “She ac­cused Khloé of once again be­ing blinded by love and mov­ing too quickly, like she did when she mar­ried La­mar [Odom] af­ter just a month of know­ing him.” But Khloé, 32, coun­tered with a pitch her mo­mager couldn’t re­sist: a re­al­ity show with her new man. “Kris quickly changed her tune,” says the in­sider. “She sud­denly went from rant­ing about Khloé’s ‘de­struc­tive re­la­tion­ship habits’ to telling her that she’ll make mil­lions from mar­ry­ing Tris­tan.”

Kris, 60, thinks Khloé and her lat­est NBA star love in­ter­est could save the fam­ily brand. With film­ing for the fam­ily’s flag­ship series, Keep­ing Up With the Kar­dashi­ans, on hold since Kim Kar­dashian was robbed at gun­point in Paris on Oct. 3, “Kris is ter­ri­fied that fans will lose in­ter­est,” ex­plains the in­sider. “She des­per­ately wants a new project to work on and thinks Khloé and Tris­tan’s show would be rat­ings gold, es­pe­cially if they in­clude all the drama sur­round­ing the bas­ket­ball player leav­ing his preg­nant ex for her daugh­ter.” (See side­bar be­low.)

And Tris­tan, 25, is all for it. “He loves the fame he’s get­ting from be­ing with a Kar­dashian,” says the in­sider. He chose the right sis­ter. “Out of all the Kar­dashi­ans, Khloé is the one who loves the cam­eras the most,” ex­plains a fam­ily source. “For too long, her story lines have re­volved around her cry­ing over drama with La­mar and all the is­sues that came with that. Khloé’s in a much bet­ter headspace now and wants to show off her re­la­tion­ship.”

She’ll start with their lav­ish wed­ding. “Khloé and Tris­tan plan on spend­ing at least $1 mil­lion on their big day and are invit­ing 400 guests. They want the wed­ding to be in Cal­i­for­nia and are al­ready look­ing at pri­vate es­tates in Mal­ibu and Santa Bar­bara,” says the in­sider. “Kris is hop­ing it’ll bring in even more view­ers than Kim’s [2011] wed­ding to Kris Humphries.”

And Khloé’s hop­ing this one will have a hap­pier end­ing. “She and Tris­tan are madly in love,” says the in­sider, “and say­ing they want to spend the rest of their lives to­gether.” ◼

Cam­eras will be rolling when Khloé and Tris­tan ex­change vows”
