Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ Khloe has not spoken to Tristan for several days because she’s still furious after finding out he repeatedly cheated on her, and embarrassed her in the process.

We’re told while Khloe’s recent post made it appear as if she and Tristan were solid — unveiling the baby’s name as “our little girl,” True Thompson — sources tell us it’s just a facade and their relationship is hanging by a thread.

We’re told Khloe is nowhere near forgiving Tristan … and the same goes for the rest of the Klan, including Rob, who is raging at Tristan. For now … Khloe’s putting on a brave face for the sake of their daughter. Khloe’s sisters are also livid.

Khloe and the baby are staying at Tristan’s house in Cleveland for the time being, largely because all of the baby gear is in the nursery there. But, they haven’t been alone since Khloe was released from the hospital. There is definitely a chill in the air.

Kris has been by Khloe’s side since the birth, and Kim, Kourtney and Kendall flew to Cleveland on Monday to support their sister after she had an emotional breakdown. But things will soon change. We’re told once Khloe’s medically cleared to fly, she’s getting the hell outta Dodge and bringing True back with her to L.A.

Aside from being the baby daddy, Tristan’s status with Khloe is tenuous at best.

Kendrick Lamar is once again making history! Apparently the highly acclaimed rapper who has won Grammy after Grammy can add a Pulitzer Prize to his repertoire of awards, via his hit album, “Damn!” Kendrick is now the first rapper to receive a Pulitzer and the first musician outside of the jazz and classical music genres to win as well!

On Monday, Mr. Lamar’s “DAMN.” took home an even more elusive honor, one that may never have even seemed within reach: the Pulitzer Prize for music. Mr. Lamar is not only the first rapper to win the award since the Pulitzers expanded to music in 1943, but he is also the first winner who is not a classical or jazz musician.

“The time was right,” Dana Canedy, the administrator of the prizes, said in an interview after the winners were announced. “We are very proud of this selection. It means that the jury and the board judging system worked as it’s supposed to — the best work was awarded a Pulitzer Prize.”

She added: “It shines a light on hip-hop in a completely different way. This is a big moment for hip-hop music and a big moment for the Pulitzers.”

All we can say is congratulations Kendrick! This is huge and we are over the moon happy for you. Mr. Lamar continues to push the envelope with his music, style, and mantra of activism! Dana is right this is a huge moment for hip-hop/rap, allowing others to recognized for their craft and contributions. What do you guys think of Kendrick’s big win? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

We’re told the contractions just started and, although there’s no way to know, it may not be a coincidence it happened just hours after videos surfaced of Tristan hooking up with other women. We’re told her due date is late April, but it looks like the baby is coming soon.

Our sources say Kris Jenner flew out Wednesday morning and Kim, along with other family members and friends are scheduled to fly out Thursday and Friday.

We’re told the family is extremely upset over the revelations about Tristan … they say they were in the dark until Tuesday.

As for Tristan … he has a game tonight in Cleveland, on the heels of his team’s NYC trip … which included his apparent rendezvous with a side chick. As we first reported, he was also with 2 other women last Fall in a D.C. area club.

We are really hoping Khloe comes out of the unscathed. She has wanted to be a mother for so long and it really sucks that she has to deal with Tristan’s infidelity during what should be the happiest moment of her life. We understand that people felt she had some karma coming to her after she allegedly “stole” Tristan from his then pregnant girlfriend, Jordan Craig. Still, no one deserves this. We wonder is Tristan in route too. He better be! If not start the child support now! We will keep you posted as this story develops.
