The latest scandal that shook the Kardashian family is a drama worthy of a soap opera. TMZ posted a video of NBA star Tristan Thompson, who's the father of the baby that Khloé Kardashian is waiting for, kissing two unknown women in a bar. The surveillance video was filmed in October 2017 when Khloe was three months pregnant.
Amid the scandal, the whole family stopped following Thompson on Instagram and, while they have not made an official announcement, it's safe to assume that things are not right in the relationship.
The infidelity of a couple can be devastating for many, and even more so for a woman who is about to have her first child. But this isn't the first time Tristan betrays a partner. Before meeting Khloé, he was expecting his first child with another woman, model Jordan Craig.
According to People magazine, Tristan is a "serial cheater." Science assures that once a cheater is always a cheater!
The Science of Infidelity
Why are there people who cheat on their partners frequently? Don't they feel guilty for hurting their loved ones? Apparently not, according to a study published in the scientific journal Nature. Lying is like a drug, the first time the sensation of remorse is very strong, but after doing it often the effect diminishes.
According to the researchers, the brain adapts to dishonesty. The more times a person cheats on their partner and then lies, the less guilty they will feel and the more likely they will do it again. That's because the amygdala, the part of the brain that controls emotions, gives a weaker negative response after being cheated many times.
Neil Garrett, co-author of the study and researcher at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute told Elite Daily that:
"What our study and others suggest is a powerful factor that prevents us from cheating is our emotional reaction to it, how bad we feel essentially, and the process of adaptation reduces this reaction, thereby allowing us to cheat more. With serial cheaters, it could be the case that they initially felt bad about cheating, but have cheated so much they've adapted to their ways and simply don't feel bad about cheating any more. Another possibility is that they never felt bad about cheating to begin with, so they didn't need adaptation to occur, they were comfortable with it from the get-go."
So basically, once a cheater, always a cheater... so be careful!
