Khloe, 35, was cringing when Kim let slip she invited Tristan, 28, out for dinner after the pair bumped into each other in New York.
In a new teaser for the upcoming season 18 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim shared she was trying to repair her relationship with Khloe’s NBA ex.
Fireworks exploded last year when the Tristan and Jordyn Woods cheating scandal rocked the showbiz circuit.
In a FaceTime conversation, Kim tried to soften the blow to her sister by divulging it was the basketball player who had got in contact with her first.
Kim said: “I was leaving the Mercer Hotel and then I get a call on my cellphone from Tristan. And he was like, ‘Oh my god! I’m right next door.’
“And he’s like, ‘What are you doing?’ And I was like, ‘I’m gonna go have dinner with my friends.’ So, I was like, ‘Do you wanna come?'”
Khloe had been completely oblivious and she was surprised by the development in the saga.
“You invited him to dinner?” Khloe asked.
Kim said: “But I was just like, Oh my god, what did I do? Should I not invite him to dinner?”
Khloe tried to be as understanding as possible as she maintained her cool while chatting to Kim.
She told Kim: “I think you gotta do what’s best for you.
“If you want him to have a drink at the end, there’s nothing wrong with that. That’s beyond generous of you.”
Kim added: “I don’t think what Tristan did was, obviously, right… Obviously, I can’t. That’s not my thing and I brutalized him.”
“But, I also know that that’s True’s dad and that mom [Kris Jenner] cheated on dad, you know what I mean? And all of their friends forgave mom.”
Khloe heaped on the praise to her sister for “doing a nice thing” but she admitted she was still surprised the pair went to dinner.
Kim added: “I think forgiveness is the best way.”
Khloe and Tristan’s relationship crumbled after it was claimed the basketball player kissed Kylie Jenner’s ex-BFF Jordyn.
The pair have remained amicable while raising their daughter True Thomspon.
