Thompson was "relieved" that the reports surfaced, and "thinks subconsciously he wanted to get caught." 

The source adds Thompson ultimately blamed his actions on the "pressure" not to turn down women who were "constantly throwing themselves at him."

"It’s the unspoken rule in the NBA that players hook-up with groupies on the road," the source added. "He has promised Khloé to never cheat on her again. She has chosen to believe him."
