After the paparazzi posted photos from this weekend’s Father’s Day celebrations of Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson seemingly cozying up together, Khloe quickly shut down any rumors of the exes getting back together.
In the photographs captured of Khloe, Tristan and 4-year-old daughter True, the family of three looked very relaxed together. So much so, that fans speculated the former couple might be back together. In response to a fan account on Instagram who had reposted the pics in question, Khloe accused the paparazzi of attempting to spark rumors of a reunion between her and Tristan by making the “calculated” decision not to release photographs of sisters Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner with their baby daddies, who had also been present for the weekend lunch. “Hummmm Very calculated of the paparazzi to not release photos of my other sisters and the fathers of their children Kim/Kanye Kylie/Trav,” Khloe commented on the photos.
Additionally, there were photos released of just Khloé and Tristan appearing to strap in True into her car seat. In one particularly eyebrow-raising shot, Tristan can be seen with his arm squeezed around Khloé, as she looked to return the embrace by hugging him back from the side.
Before fans could get too carried away, Khloe caught wind of the chatter and was quick to set the record straight, calling the paps out in the process. Some fans rallied behind Khloe, taking to Twitter to call out the paparazzi’s “sick obsession” with attempting to manipulate a false narrative about her relationship with Tristan. “The paparazzi give people very convenient content so the people can enjoy hating her,” one fan wrote. “That’s not healthy, that really is just a mental disease.”
Khloe responded to the tweet and added in agreement, “A mental disease at my expense. It’s disgusting.”

Khloe has made it clear on several occasions that maintaining a healthy co-parenting dynamic is her only concern when it comes to their future.
A source told PEOPLE that Khloe is dating someone and is in the early stages, but the Good American founder is feeling “really good” with her new mystery man — a private equity investor she met when sister Kim Kardashian introduced them at a dinner party a few weeks ago.
