Thompson is worried that his past infidelities will come back to haunt him.

Tristan Thompson got real on the latest episode of The Kardashians, discussing how he fears his past might lead his kids to be embarrassed to have him as a dad. “True’s understanding stuff. Prince understands things. They go to school and they have classmates. The last thing I want them to do is ever feel embarrassed that I’m their father," Thompson told Khloé Kardashian, who is the mother of two of his children. It appears that a lot of Thompson's fear stems from his long history of infidelity, as well as the fact that he has four children with three women.

However, Kardashian had some pearls of wisdom for her suffering ex. “Just remember, you’re not your past. Your past doesn’t define you. Moving forward, hold yourself in a way that you will be proud of. Or if your kids read something about you, you’re going to be proud of that. Your legacy, what you want to leave behind, is way greater than what the world has been exposed to," she told Thompson. While Kardashian and Thompson are no longer together, they did welcome a second child via surrogate last year.

"I've done so many wrong things, why [did I] put you through that? You're my person." Kardashian didn't immediately respond to the comment and still looked stunned when a producer how she felt about what Thompson said.

Thompson and Kardashian's romance dates back to 2016. However, things fell apart after Thompson was caught cheating on Kardashian with multiple women during her pregnancy.
