The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star was photographed outside of Cryto.com Arena following a Los Angeles Lakers vs. Sacramento Kings basketball game — and clearly wanted paparazzi to know he is supporting Khloe’s ex. As he was leaving, Corey whipped bout a No. 13 Thompson jersey — he plays on the Kings — from a bag he was carrying.
According to reports, it was game-worn, and Thompson handed the jersey to him at the end of the game. Now, it’s possible the two men are friends considering they were “in the family” together for so long, but it’s what he did next that has many questioning whether his girlfriend might not be happy with him this morning.
Corey Gamble Flashes Tristan Thompson Jersey Outside Of L.A. Lakers Game!
Photographers took a video of Gamble walking out of the stadium and he promptly pulled the game-worn Thompson jersey out of a bag and showed it to the cameras. Without making an actual statement, this is as close to full public support as you can get in this case. It’s surprising considering the gesture comes just hours after Tristan revealed he IS the father of a newborn baby, which was conceived while he was still dating Khloe Kardashian.
Earlier this week, Tristan broke his silence on the situation saying, “Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”

He continued, “Khloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
The mother of the newborn baby responded to the apology via a spokesperson, saying, “There was never any doubt that Tristan Thompson was the father of Maralee Nichol’s baby. Tristan made numerous false and defamatory statements and declarations about Maralee over the past few months, and she is taking his contrite statement today in the context of all of those statements.”
Khloe Kardashian’s Baby Daddy Apologizes For ‘Humiliation’ He Caused
At this point, Kris Jenner hasn’t responded to the situation, but we are guessing Corey is getting a stern talking to his morning. But, regardless of his actions, Thompson is still the father of the couple’s young daughter — True — and continues to co-parent with Khloe and the Kardashian Klan.
As we reported, Thompson also delivered a bouquet of roses to his 3-year-old daughter ahead of his public apology to her mother. He is really trying, we will give him that.
