Khloé Kardashian Forced to Clarify Relationship with Tristan Thompson After Kylie Jenner’s Birthday Party

Yeah, it’s “complicated.”

A lot happened at Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party. There were costume changes, karaoke, a giant ball pit, a pop-up mural of the extended Kardashian-Jenner family tree, Barbie dolls with broken limbs, uncomfortable encounters with exes, cops, and, inexplicably, a cameo from Dave Chappelle. So much happened, in fact, that you may have missed one crucial detail: an update in the Khloé Kardashian-Tristan Thompson saga, courtesy of a few pesky color-coded cups.

According to Cosmo, Jenner had the bright idea to bombard her already sensory-overloaded guests with three categories of cups, each color-coded to serve as a shorthand for the drinker’s relationship status: pink for “taken,” yellow for “single af,” and green for “it’s complicated.” Then, probably because paying attention to the color of your cup in a strobe-lit venue is a weird if not Herculean feat, especially when there’s alcohol involved, Khloé Kardashian drank from a green one—aka “it’s complicated.” Cue the screams.

But it didn’t end there. After tabloids everywhere freaked out about the detail, Kardashian was forced to clarify things… in the comments section of a Kylie Jenner fan account. “People are reaching. I ordered a drink, it came in a cup, I drank it,” she wrote, per Cosmo. “End of story. Not that deep lol. I’m sure I drank out of every colored cup that night.”

Kylie seemingly forcing Khloé’s hand by introducing an overly complicated game of semaphoric wits at her 21st birthday party probably didn’t improve relations between the Kardashian sisters, who recently feuded both in real life and a Keeping Up With the Kardashians storyline. To recap, the in-universe Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé enrolled in “sisters therapy” after Kim called Kourtney “the least interesting to look at.” Meanwhile, the IRL Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé got into a fight on Twitter dot com when Kourtney responded to the “least interesting to look at” comment by tweeting, “We all have our own priorities. Mine is being a mother.”

Hopefully, Kylie’s choice of drinkware gives them all something to bond over.
