A few days before the tweet, Khloé had made multiple cryptic posts on her Instagram Story that seemed to jab at the former Cleveland Cavaliers player. The messages were about finding peace and love despite surviving a “tragedy.” One post read, “A woman that found peace instead of revenge can never be bothered.”
Another was a quote from writer Dane Thomas, which read, “The most beautiful soul you will ever find is one who has experienced loss but continues to have faith, and one who has experienced failure but continues to pursue their dreams.”
There Were Previously Rumors They’d Reunited
Rumors that Khloé and Tristan had reconciled and resumed their relationship began after his mom, Andrea Thomspon, died unexpectedly in January. According to TMZ, Andrea suffered a heart attack at home and was rushed to a hospital, where she eventually passed.
At the time, Khloé and Tristan immediately took a private jet together from Los Angeles to Toronto to be with his mourning family. The NBA star was very close with his mother, who was a school bus driver, and once shared a photo of Andrea and True together, smiling brightly.
Other members of the Kardashian family, especially Kim and Kris Jenner, also showed Tristan their support following the sudden death of his mother.
Khloé Kardashian & Tristan Thompson Split After His Paternity Scandal
Khloé and Tristan split shortly after his paternity scandal with Maralee Nichols became public news. Nichols had filed a paternity lawsuit against Tristan, claiming that he was the father of her son, Theo, who was born in 2021, while he was still dating the “The Kardashians” star.
Shortly after the lawsuit went public, Tristan confirmed in an Instagram Story post that a paternity test had proven he was indeed the father of Theo. He also posted a lengthy apology to Khloé, saying she didn’t “deserve the heartache and humiliation” he’d brought to her.
Khloé and Tristan currently co-parent their four-year-old daughter True and a baby boy, who was born through surrogacy in July 2022. The reality star has yet to disclose her son’s name and rarely shares photos of him on social media. Tristan also has another son, Prince, 6, with ex-girlfriend Jordyn Craig.
