Tristan Thompson was welcomed back to the Kardashian family after a long weekend with Khloe and his clan
TRISTAN Thompson was “welcomed back” to the Kardashian family after spending a long weekend with Khloe and her mother and siblings in Palm Springs, California.
The newly-signed Lakers player was last seen Tuesday in Rialto, CA, with his baby mum picking up McDonald’s drive-thru meals – which is on the way to the family’s vacation homes.
Although Khloe kept her female ex off her social media during the Easter celebrations, a source exclusively told The US Sun that Tristan was “100 per cent” in attendance.
While the family has apparently let Tristan back into the inner circle, he doesn’t always seem to get jet privileges as Kim and the rest of the family took their plane.
“Tristan has basically been welcomed back into the Kardashian family and is spending a lot of time with them,” the insider said this week.
“He went to Palm Springs with Khloe early last week and was there with her kids, Kris, Kim and the whole gang until Sunday.
“They stayed in Kris and Kylie’s adjoining houses and Bright Event Rentals decorated the entire place for a huge Easter party.
“Kim’s jet flew back and forth from LA to Palm Springs all week, which takes 33 minutes each way, but Khloe and Tristan spent eight hours making the round trip together.”
Kylie’s plane is said to be grounded in Florida for two weeks, allegedly for repairs, the insider says.
The source went on to say that Kourtney and her husband Travis and their children spent time on their separate property near the Madison Club and sometimes left, but Khloe and Tristan were holed up.
“Most family members rarely leave the properties when in Palm Springs, and they had their own private chef over the Easter weekend,” they said.
“Khloe and Tristan are on great terms again, she still feels like her best friend and desperately wants that solid family unit.
“Tristan bought a house a block and a half from Khloe’s in her gated community, and now that he’s signed with the Lakers, he’s definitely here to stay.
“He’s had one chance after another, it’s amazing how well the family still treats him but they only want what’s best for Khloe and her two kids.”
Khloe shared a series of photos from her festive weekend on her Instagram account, all showing the kids wearing bunny ears and playing on a large mat.
A separate source previously told The US Sun that Tristan, 32, is “acting like he’s Khloe’s husband” as the on-and-off couple continue to spark rumors they’re back together.
The Kardashian insider revealed, “Khloe says she’s single but privately she’s pretending Tristan is her husband.
“They do everything together – he’s there most mornings and noon for breakfast and all day – most nights they make bedtimes and hang out together.”
The source shared, “When you go into the house, he’s always there.”
Khloe, 38, has continued to deny rumors that she and Tristan are back together and TMZ reported last week that they are not romantically involved.
The US Sun has reached out to Khloe’s rep for comment but has received no response.
The former couple share a four-year-old daughter, True, and an eight-month-old son, whose name is yet to be revealed.
The little one was born via surrogate after Khloe discovered Tristan had fathered a son, Theo, with influencer Maralee Nichols while they were still together.
The drama played out on the family’s Hulu show, The Kardashians, and Tristan was banned again – but it seems he’s managed to charm the family once again.
Earlier this year, the US Sun exclusively reported that a trust linked to Tristan had signed a deed for the six-bedroom home near Khloe and Kris Jenner’s adjoining mansions.
A new aerial photo showed just how close Tristan’s new home is to the Good American co-founder’s residence.
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.
