Khloe Kardashian would "never" date somebody "who has a girlfriend", after she was accused of starting her romance with now-ex Tristan Thompson while he was still dating Jordan Craig.
The 34-year-old beauty recently hit back at claims she began a relationship with now-ex boyfriend Tristan Thompson - with whom she has 14-month-old daughter True - whilst he was still romantically involved with Jordan Craig, the mother of his three-year-old son Prince.
And sources have now said Khloe felt as though she had "no choice" but to publicly defend herself from hate, because she knows she would never knowingly enter a relationship with a taken man.
An insider said: "Khloé hates when she has to defend herself publicly, but she felt that she had no choice. She can't have Jordan saying that she starting seeing Tristan while he was still dating Jordan and not speak up about it. According to Khloé, this is just not true. She would never date a guy who has a girlfriend. It's just ridiculous.
"Khloé was told by Tristan, and several people close this him, that he was NOT dating Jordan when he started seeing Khloé."
