Kim Kardashian launched a string of jokes during her SNL monologue, but one barb about her family was so brutal it ended up being cut.
No one was safe during Kim Kardashian’s headline-grabbing Saturday Night Live monologue, in which she roasted herself, Kanye West and her mother Kris Jenner.
But the 41-year-old billionaire was forced to cut one particularly savage joke about her sister, Khloe Kardashian, and her on-again-off-again cheating ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson.
During the latest episode of The Kardashians reality show on Disney +, we saw Kim sitting down with US comedian Amy Schumer to run through the jokes she’d written for her opening monologue.
“Oh, Khloe, you have the biggest heart,” Kim began her joke. “It’s so big it has a room for Tristan and all of his side pieces.”
A stunned Schumer said, “Oh s ** t.”
Kim ended up nixing the joke during her October appearance on SNLthough she didn’t explain why.
The Kardashians episode was filmed two months prior to the most recent Thompson scandal, in which it was revealed he had fathered a child with Instagram model, Maralee Nicholswho was conceived in March last year when he was still dating Khloe, whom he shares four-year-old daughter True with.
But reports Thompson was the father didn’t emerge until December, just a few short weeks before Nichols gave birth to a baby boy.
The NBA star denied he was the father at the time, though he eventually was forced to admit it in early January after a DNA test provided the truth.
The fallout of the revelation is expected to air in upcoming episodes of the new reality series, though fans got a sneak peek of Thompson’s guilty conscience in the debut episode – which was filmed in October and dropped last week.
The famous family were seen having a barbecue at Kim’s house, when Skim’s founder’s six-year-old son Saint West showed his mother a photo he found of her on the online gaming platform, Roblox.
The photo was prompting players to click on a link to watch unreleased footage of Kim’s infamous sex tape with Ray J from 2007.
A panicked Kim yelled, “Khloe, will you look at this!”, With eagle-eyed fans noticing Thompson in the background appearing to be in a state of panic.
Elsewhere in the episode, which was filmed in October, Thompson was seen pleading with Khloe for them to reignite their relationship, after they broke off their three-month-long engagement in June when an Instagram model named Sydney Chase emerged claiming they had slept together.
“You know how I feel about you, you know I want us to get back together and build our family and hopefully be able to expand that family,” he said.
Khloe, who had no idea a heavily-pregnant Nichols existed at this point, then tells a piece-to-camera: “Everyday he tries to show me and prove to me he’s a different person and I should have faith and trust him.”
In recent media interviews, Khloe revealed it was Kim who broke the news to her in December that Thompson had been hit with Nichols’ paternity suit.
Speaking to USA TodayKhloe admitted that “it was hard” to learn the news of Thompson’s infidelity.
Thompson has cheated on reality star multiple times, including when he was caught making out with a woman while Khloe was about to welcome True back in 2018.
It is understood the pair have broken up for good.
