Iman opened up about the power forward’s relationship with Khloe during an interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

The late-night talk show host asked Iman, “When you were in the Cavs…how did you feel about everything that went on between Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian?”

The Dancing with the Stars winner offered a somewhat prearranged response, stating, “I wasn’t a big deal for us. Honestly, when things from the outside world are bubbling, the best thing for us is that we have games.”

He expands, “So we can focus on that… get tunnel vision.”

The NBA champion then added, “I think we all just sympathized with Chloe.”

Andy, somewhat surprised by Iman’s frankness, confirms, “Yes?”

Iman replies: “Yes … Chloe is cool”, Bravo! the host agrees and admits that “she’s great”.

Iman continues: “I don’t know what’s going on with them, I’m sure they say they’ve grown up, but… it was sad. I remember feeling like this.”

On Instagram, fans cheered for Iman’s honest approach when asked about Tristan’s betrayal when he could have easily evaded the question for his friend.

One person wrote: “I love that he said that. He knows it’s wrong. He felt it.”

Another person added, “He’s such a nice dude.”

A third commented, “He is so cute. I’m so glad he said that.”


The NBA champion made history as the first basketball player to win the Dancing with the Stars trophy.

The 31-year-old performed cha-cha fusion and foxtrot with his partner Daniella Karagach on the Earth, Wind and Fire classic in September.

They earned their first perfect score of the season, 10 points from each judge.

After their fiery dance, the pair ignited their second performance of the night even more, a highly anticipated freestyle.

Iman danced to Missy Elliot’s Lose Control and got everyone in the ballroom back on their feet with complex moves and fast footwork in Chicago.

Repeating their first perfect score, the duo also scored 40 out of 40 for their second dance.

After host Tyra Banks announced the results, Iman couldn’t believe it and walked away from the camera.

He seemed to burst into tears, hunched over, and nearly fell to the floor.


Tristan’s cheating scandal was the main plot of the season 1 finale of Kardashian.

In this episode, 26-year-old Kendall Jenner calls sister Khloe Kardashian, 37, to check on her sister after news of her then-boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s latest infidelity spread through the family group chat.

Chloe and Tristan have one daughter, True, age four, and at the time of filming they were in a relationship that seemed to be gaining momentum during filming.

The segment begins with Kendall asking Chloe if she and the NBA power forward have been “talking” since the founder of Good American heard about Tristan’s cheating and the love of the baby he’s expecting because of it.

Tristan had an affair with his ex-lover, 31-year-old Marali Nichols, who gave birth to their child Theo in January.

Chloe answers “no” before the clip cuts to the 37-year-old’s confession.

The producer asks, “What hurts the most? Is it that he had the opportunity to tell you and he didn’t? Is it that you saw the future and now you don’t?”

Chloe replies, “I’m not sure there’s anything more painful in a situation like this.”

She continues: “Everything is an act of betrayal. All lies. Everything is manipulation, deceit.”

Did Tristan have every opportunity to tell me? Yes. Was Tristan going to tell me if there’s no baby in it? Absolutely not.


Kendall asks about how she feels during stressful situations: “Have you been feeling anxious lately?”

“I’m so worried, I’m really dehydrated… I passed out the other day.”

“What?!” asks a shocked Kendall before asking the question, “Chloe, when did you faint?

Chloe tries to comfort her little sister by saying, “I’m fine,” but then confesses, “Sometimes I literally feel like I can’t breathe and I’m suffocating.”

Even in the confession, Chloe says that “there is so much stress, so much noise.”

The reality TV star continues: “I keep seeing that I should have known better, I knew what I was doing, [and] that no one feels bad for me.”

She finishes: “It’s very sensitive [and] I feel incredibly depressed.”
