Khloé Kardashian Is Reportedly Proud Of Tristan Thompson For Signing With The Lakers And Is Glad He’ll Be Living Closer To Their Kids
Though “single” Khloé Kardashian said she doesn’t miss her old face, her Instagram post about her baby daddy/on-off man Tristan Thompson a few weeks ago, combined with their recent McDonald’s run, makes it seem like she missed the way they were before she dumped him for the fifty-leventh time. Many would’ve been done with his ass for good after he cheated with her friend and impregnated another woman (right before he and Khloé’s second child was baking in a surrogate), but Khloe seems to be teasing their reunion. And after it was reported that Tristan signed with the Lakers, sources said that Khloé is filled with pride and is hopeful that his closer proximity will mean he’ll be spending more time with their kids.
Us Weekly reports that Khloé says she’s “so proud” of Tristan for joining such an ICONIC team (I’m sure at least one of the Koven uttered that word they overuse in obnoxious vocal fry).
“Khloé couldn’t be more thrilled for Tristan now that he’s joined the Lakers,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.
“She’s so proud of him and all the hard work he’s done which has led up to this huge accomplishment.”
It was announced that the NBA player, 32, was moving from the Chicago Bulls to the California team on Sunday, April 9. “OFFICIAL: Tristan Thompson and Shaquille Harrison are Los Angeles Lakers,” read a caption on the team’s official Instagram. Kardashian, 38, dropped a “like” on the announcement, seemingly approving of the acquisition.
Here’s the Lakers’ announcement:
And, his move to the Lakers will enable Tristan to (theoretically) spend more time with his kids (at least the ones he acknowledges) rather than spend his time gallivanting around Greece holding hands with randos next time some poor sweet summer child is giving birth to one of his inevitable subsequent children.
“He’ll be in LA much more often so he can be closer to his kids and spend even more time with them,” the source tells Us.
…The Good American founder believes the move will help his bonds with their daughter, True — who turns 5 on Wednesday, April 12 — and their 8-month-old son, whose name has yet to be revealed.
Prior to his professional relocation, Thompson recently bought a house to be closer to Kardashian and their two children. (He is also the father of son Prince, 6, whom he coparents with ex Jordan Craig, and son Theo, 15 months, whom he shares with Maralee Nichols.)
The basketball player pays child support but is otherwise largely uninvolved in Theo’s life, insiders tell Us. “He hasn’t met Theo nor has he initiated any meetings,” a source shared in June 2022. “He doesn’t have any immediate plans to meet his son face to face.”
Khloé must really have a thing for sinking her klacky klaws into licentious Lakers! Imagine not being able to resist a dirty bird who’s tossed it into the entire west coast being your only available storyline option for your insufferable family’s Hulu reality show, but you know Kris Jenner’s already registered the trademark for Khloé’s Klown Kollege. Because this krew excels at turning embarrassing messes into lucrative embarrassing messinade!
