“We have a strong, very loyal bond in our family. We are excellent co-parents and we are good at bringing families together. We learned that from my mom and dad, ”he told Tristan, 31, during a joint training session. “Like Scott [Disick] he never leaves and Kanye [West] it never goes away. You never seem to leave. We are all here forever ”.
The athlete jokingly replied: “More like you never leave me”. Khloé stressed that it’s “a beautiful thing” to keep their connection, adding, “We are family, whether you like it or not.”

You’re not going to keep talking about my family like that. ‘ He got his ass out of there ”.
The Good American co-founder, for her part, was confused about the insults, asking, “She called me a whore and said I hang out with basketball players. I’ve had six boyfriends and three of them have been in the NBA. Thanks. What’s my problem? “
As the two enjoyed their morning workout, Khloé talked about their evolving relationship over the years. “Tristan is very protective of his family. He doesn’t like people talking about any of us, ”he told the cameras. “He’s really cute and how I think everyone should be. You should just protect your family ”.
