Tristan Thompson signs with the LA Lakers after moving right next to Khloe Kardashian’s $17 million home amid reconciliation rumors
TRISTAN Thompson has signed with the LA Lakers after moving right next to Khloe Kardashian’s $17million mansion amid reconciliation rumors.
The Los Angeles Lakers made it on Sunday officially that Tristan is now a part of the team.
An NBA insider briefly mentioned that the reason Tristan was signed was to “add depth for the postseason.”
Now that Tristan is in LA more often, he’ll be much closer to ex Khloe Kardashian.
The couple have two children together: True and a son whose name is not yet known.
Earlier this year, The US Sun exclusively reported that a trust associated with Tristan, 32, signed a deed for the six-bedroom home, which is just two miles from Khloe, 38, and Kris Jenner’s adjoining villas .
Just two lots separate the former Chicago Bulls player’s mansion from his ex-girlfriend and their two children.
Tristan’s luxurious home is equipped with a home theater, private gym, refrigerated wine cellar and a spacious five car garage.
Other features of the property include a private pool and spa, a covered patio, a beautiful garden and even a private half basketball court.
Tristan and Khloe were recently spotted at a McDonald’s drive-thru.
She was in the driver’s seat of a dark-colored SUV while Tristan loitered in the passenger seat.
The duo were spotted in Rialto, California, where they reportedly picked up a ton of food.
Among the items the Kardashian picked up were happy meals, likely for her daughter True Thompson, 4.
The video was captured by a McDonald’s employee and an Instagram user @radjasmooo, who captioned the video, “Khloe Kardashian visited us at work today.”
The Good American founder can be seen in the video with dark sunglasses, a dark sweatshirt and a smile.
Tristan also appears to be wearing a black sweatshirt while waiting for his order.
“WE WERE FOR YOU”
Despite reports from the mother-of-two, fans on Reddit are more confident than ever that Tristan and Khloe are back together.
One asked: “So how do you think she’s going to get in? Because how can you be back with trash cans after last season’s opening!!!?
“So they’re back together and he’s probably cheating on her already,” added another.
A third chimed in: “I guess Khloe never listened to me saying you should believe people when they first show you who they are. We rooted for you.”
“She’ll buy this man any houses or cars he wants, she’ll go to the friggin’ war for him, she’ll support him to the end of the world, she doesn’t give a fuck. I wish someone in her life would sit her down and ask what the hell she’s doing,” someone said.
HERE WE GO AGAIN
Back in March, Entertainment Tonight spoke to a source close to the KUWTK star, who said Khloe and Tristan aren’t in a relationship.
The source said Khloe “is in a good place and has set boundaries for Tristan. Tristan will always be in Khloe’s life, but she’s not in love with him.
“She chooses to support her children publicly and privately.”
The source also said the Hulu reality star is able to talk about the whole situation “without being emotional.”
The insider also said, “Khloe has the biggest heart and sometimes that’s her downfall. She is forgiving, loving with all she has and so loyal, but her focus at the moment is on co-parenting and taking care of herself.
“Kim and the rest of the family are proud of Khloe for putting herself first.”
Unfortunately, Tristian seems to have a different goal for his relationship with Khloe.
A source told Us Weekly: “Tristan is always trying to get Khloe back, he still loves her and wants it to work out between them. They’re friends and great co-parents, but he wants more.”
Another insider told us the pair aren’t dating, and Khloe was upset that she had to turn off comments on her birthday post for Tristan.
The source said, “Khloé will never fail to support Tristan because he is the father of her two children.”
They continued, “Despite everything that has happened between them, she has decided to focus on the positive because her children are the most important people in her life.
“She is able to separate from her past and appreciates the way he shows himself to his children.”
