Tristan Thompson is not only known as a friend of the third Kardashian daughter Khloe, but he is also a professional basketball player from Canada who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). They may be excited about the NBA player’s relationship with Khloe Kardashian, but there is a lot to know about his career. Before we get to the relationship aspect of his life, let’s answer one of the most frequently asked questions.
Who is Tristan Thompson?
The professional basketball player Tristian also represents his country Canada in international competitions. He is of Jamaican descent but grew up with his parents in Canada. He is a product of Saint Benedict’s Preparatory School, which he attended after his first stay at St. Marguerite d’Youville Secondary School in Brampton. The player was drafted into the NBA by Cleveland Cavaliers in 2011 and won a championship with the team in 2016.

Why Did He Cheat on Khloe Kardashian?
Tristan Thompson and Khloe welcomed a little girl – True Thompson – on April 12, 2018. Khloe, who had fertility problems, could be described as one of the happiest women in the world after confirming her own pregnancy. She wanted to use her pregnancy to get other women excited about her story and did not hesitate to share her pregnancy trip with the public once she was six weeks old.
Things ran so smoothly between the couple until rumors of Tristan’s fraud spread like wildfire in the media. The news was supported by a revealing photograph of Thompson with another woman in his hotel room. To make matters worse, this discouraging incident happened two days before Khloe had her baby, True. Shortly thereafter, a video was released showing Thompson having fun with some women in a club. This went on to find out that the NBA player was cheating on the Kardashian even though she had expected him to. The news reports and other digital media platforms became too deafening for the Kardashian family, which Thompson pushed out of the social media to resolve tensions.
It was during this time that more excavations were carried out on the dating history of the basketball player. And what was found was not so pleasant to the ear.
Tristan Thompson’s Ex-girlfriends and Kids
Turns out Thompson has a history of cheating pregnant girlfriends. When Khloe and Tristan started dating, he was expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend, Jordan Craig. Jordan is an Instagram influencer who also had a relationship with NBA player Baron Davis.
There was nothing hidden from the Kardashian, Khloe and her family was aware of the pregnancy of Thompson’s ex. Everyone makes mistakes and the Kardashian family is not the immaculate, conservative or reserved type who considered personal problems like those of Thompson. Khloe was also willing to commit to her husband anyway, and rest assured that her relationship would not be plagued by baby mama dramas.

Yet the family still showed little concern, especially since Khloe had previously been married to a basketball player, Lamar Odom. Her fears were realized and Khloe’s darling was made out with other women while she was pregnant with her first child.
However, while the fans expected Khloe to make a statement about the fraudulent photo and video with broken hearts and tears, she instead published a message expressing her love for her newborn and how mom and dad were happy to have her. The Keeping Up With The Kardashian (KUWTK) star, considered the most resistant and kindest of all, has in no way published hateful or malicious news about her boyfriend in social media. Instead, she publishes messages of love and perseverance that leave the public in the dark as to whether the couple is still together.
Thompson’s child with Craig – Prince Thompson typed one in December 2017. Apart from the Instagram Influencer, not much is known about his ex.
