Recently, Kim Kardashian West attended the Cleveland Cavaliers versus the Los Angeles Lakers basketball game with her husband, Kanye West, and friend, Courteney Cox. For many fans, it was simply just another basketball game to enjoy; however, for Kardashian West, there seem to be some nefarious intentions for attending.

A little back story is necessary to understand what's going on and why the couple attending the game is even the least bit significant. Tristan Thompson, one of the stars for the Cavaliers is the ex-boyfriend of Kardashian West's sister, Khloe. Back in the early portion of 2019, Thompson was accused of cheating on Khloe with then Kardashian-Jenner family friend, Jordyn Woods.

Since then, things have been a bit awkward between Thompson and the Kardashian-Jenner family, despite the fact that he's trying to win Khloe back, as well as, provide for their daughter, True. And it's not completely on Khloe, as she's allowed Thompson back into her life in some capacity, even if it's not romantic in nature. Kim, though, has been an impediment for Thompson as Khloe's older and protective sister.

Fast forward to the Cavaliers versus Lakers game and people are calling Kim out for allegedly booing Thompson during the game while he was attempting free-throw shots. Kardashian-West immediately took to social media to dispel the narrative that she would go to a game just to boo a player, regardless of their past affiliation with family members. Still, videos recorded of her at the event seem to indciate otherwise.

Kardashian West Responds to Booing Accusations on Twitter

Responding to story put out by Harper's Bizarre with the headline 'Kim Kardashian Seemingly Spotted Booing Tristan Thompson While Sitting Courtside at Cavs vs. Lakers Game', Kardashian West posted on her Twitter page defending herself and sharing that she was there at the game to support Thompson. "I was there to support him! And was cheering screaming LETS GO TRISTAN!!!!! I would never go boo anyone. I don’t go to hate, only to cheer!" she wrote on Twitter.

Unfortunately for Kim, it's hard to believe that narrative, not only because she was spotted booing the Cavaliers player, but also in the way that she's slighted him in the past. During the Kardashian-Jenner Christmas party, the KKW founder got on the microphone and gave a list of thank yous to people in attendance. Scott Disick, Kourtney's ex was there and got a shout out, as was Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner's ex-boyfriend. He also got one. The one who didn't? Thompson. "To the Kardashian, Jenner, West, Disick, Webster, am I missing anybody, party," she said at the Christmas event.

So, it comes as no surprise that people don't believe Kardashian West was there to support Thompson and didn't have nefarious intentions. People on social media sounded off on their interpretation of the immediate situation that took place on the court, as well as, her desire to support a person who cheated on her sister.

One user on Twitter responded to her tweet with, "My only question is.... why would you go out of your way to support Tristan, yet still give shade to @jordynwoods?? Tristan is a serial cheater whereas Jordyn just made a naive mistake. I hope you give her an open arms welcome back as your family did him."

Another user on Twitter responded with the comment, "You came to cheer on the man that cheated on your sister multiple times?😂😂."

The Future of Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson

Thompson and Khloe's relationship has been very rocky as the NBA star has been attempting to make amends with his ex-girlfriend. While Khloe has decided to be cordial and maintain a platonic relationship with Thompson, it's been in the name of their daughter, True, who she desperately wants to have a father figure in her life.

As for now, that seems to be what it's going to stay like, especially with the input Khloe's older sister, Kim, is giving her on a regular basis regarding Thompson.
