Almost a month after her world was rocked by the news that Thompson, 27, had hooked up with her longtime family friend Jordyn Woods, a source tells PEOPLE Kardashian, 34, is “doing okay” — but certainly won’t be jumping back into the dating scene anytime soon.
“She just needs time,” says the source. “It’s going to take so long for her to rebuild trust with anyone.”
“This is the second time this has happened,” adds the source, referencing Thompson’s first cheating scandal. The basketball player made headlines last April when photos and videos surfaced of him getting close to other women just days before Kardashian gave birth to their daughter True.
Though she initially forgave him, they had been living apart since the fall and an insider recently told PEOPLE that things “never really went back to normal” between the couple.
“It will take her a long time to date again,” says the source. “A significant amount of time.”
Reports of Woods and Thompson’s tryst first surfaced in February. On March 1, Woods, 21, shared her side of the story in a tell-all interview, claiming that Thompson kissed her at an afterparty at his house on Feb. 17. Though she adamantly denied having sex with him, she admitted that the next day, while she told her best friend Kylie Jenner, 21, and Kardashian that she had been at Thompson’s house, she didn’t disclose what had happened between them.

“This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have,” she tweeted. “Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me, wasn’t such a shock as the first time.”
“What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me,” she admitted. “Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault. I have to move on with my life & count my blessings, my family, my health, & my beautiful baby True.”
Thompson, who tweeted then deleted “FAKE NEWS” when the Woods scandal first broke, has not publicly addressed the news since. The power forward has been photographed spending time with model?Karizma Ramirez and was most recently spotted in Miami on Friday, where he watched from the bench as the Miami Heat defeated his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
As for Kardashian? A source recently told PEOPLE her famous family members are doing everything they can to support her.
“Guys may come and go, but the bond between the [sisters] is never going away,” the source added. “And they’re committed to supporting each other.”
And the mother of one appears to be doing her best to move on with her life: She flew to Las Vegas over the weekend to celebrate her twin besties Malika and Khadijah Haqq’s birthdays.
