It's been just two weeks since the world was introduced to Khloé Kardashian's new baby daughter, True Thompson, whose father is Khloé's boyfriend (former boyfriend?) Tristan Thompson.

But since the birth, more details surrounding Tristan's cheating scandal have come out, leaving the public to wonder (as they do) what will happen with the parenting of True.

According to Ohio state laws, Khloé currently has sole custody of her baby by default, due to the fact that she and Tristan aren’t married. “If a child is born to unmarried parents, then under Ohio law, the mother has sole custody," said attorney Katie Arthurs in an interview with HollywoodLife. "It is then up to the father to file with the court to establish paternity, custody/shared-parenting, and/or visitation rights."

Though Khloé is reportedly working on a reconciliation with Tristan—neither of them have officially commented publicly on the scandal, as is their right—unnamed sources close to the Kardashians report that the road to forgiveness hasn't been the easiest. Which, honestly, sounds completely understandable.

Here's hoping Khloé finds some much-deserved peace soon.


Chloe Metzger is the deputy beauty director at Cosmopolitan, obsessively writing about new makeup launches, the best hair products (curly girl here; whattup), and the skincare formulas that really work for every skin type (follow her on Instagram to see behind-the-scenes pics of that magazine life). She also has an unhealthy adoration for Tom Hanks and would like to please meet him one day, if you could arrange that. Thanks.
