Tristan Thompson is not only known as the boyfriend of the third Kardashian daughter Khloe, but he is also a professional basketball player from Canada who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). You may be anxious to know about the NBA player’s relationship with Khloe Kardashian, but there is a whole lot to know about his career. Before we get to the relationship aspect of his life, let us answer one of the most frequently asked questions.
Who is Tristan Thompson?
Professional basketballer Tristian also represents his country Canada in international competitions. He is of Jamaican descent but grew up with his parents in Canada. He is a product of Saint Benedict’s Preparatory School which he attended after his first stint at St. Marguerite d’Youville Secondary School in Brampton. The player was drafted in NBA in the year 2011 by Cleveland Cavaliers and he won a championship with the team in 2016.
Tristan was not noticed by the media until he began a relationship with Khloe Kardashian. As usual, it has started out as rumours until it was finally confirmed that the two were in a relationship. This was after they were spotted on a vacation together in Mexico in the latter part of the year 2016.
Why Did He Cheat on Khloe Kardashian?
Tristan Thompson and Khloe welcomed a baby girl – True Thompson, on April 12, 2018. Khloe who had fertility issues could be described as one of the happiest women on earth following her confirmation of her own pregnancy. She was going to use her pregnancy to inspire other women with her story and did not hesitate to share her pregnancy journey with the public as soon as she was six weeks gone.
Things were going so smoothly between the couple until rumours of Tristan’s cheating spread across the media like wildfire. The news was backed by a revealing photo showing Thompson with another woman in his hotel room. To make things worse, this disheartening incident happened two days before Khloe had her baby, True. Shortly after that, a video was released showing Thompson pleasuring himself with some women in a club. This went further to uncover that the NBA player was cheating on the Kardashian even as she was expecting. The reports on the news as well as other digital media platforms became too deafening for the Kardashian family who forced Thompson off social media to calm tensions.
It was during this period that more diggings were carried out on the dating history of the basketballer. And what was found was not so pleasing to the ear.
Tristan Thompson’s Ex-girlfriends and Kids
It turned out that Thompson has a history of cheating on pregnant girlfriends. When Khloe and Tristan started dating, he was expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend, Jordan Craig. Jordan is an Instagram influencer who was also in a relationship with NBA player Baron Davis.
It was not something hidden from the Kardashian, Khloe and her family were well aware of Thompson’s ex’s pregnancy. Everyone makes mistakes and the Kardashian family is not the spotless, conservative or reserved type that took into considerations, personal issues like Thompson’s. Khloe too was ready to commit to her man regardless and rest assured that her relationship would not be plagued by baby mama dramas.
Nonetheless, the family still showed little concerns especially for the fact that Khloe was married before to a basketballer, Lamar Odom. Their fears were actualized and Khloe’s sweetheart was found making out with other women even while she was pregnant with their first child.
However, while fans were expecting a heartbroken and teary Khloe to make a statement about the cheating photo and video, she instead posted a message expressing her love for her newborn and how mummy and daddy were happy to have her. The Keeping Up With The Kardashian (KUWTK) star considered the most resilient and kindhearted of them all, has in no way posted hateful or spiteful messages about her boyfriend on social media. Instead, she posts messages of love and perseverance leaving the public in the dark as to whether the couple is still together.
Thompson’s child with Craig – Prince Thompson clocked one in December 2017. Apart from the Instagram influencer, not much is known about his exes.
