Tristan Thompson is a serial cheater, and signs say he will do it again
Khloe Kardashian welcomed her firstborn on Thursday, but just the day before, the newborn's father was earning the Internet's wrath. The 27-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers player, Tristan Thompson, was caught cheating on the 33-year-old Kardashian sister when photos and videos surfaced of Thompson getting close to an unidentified woman in N.Y.C last weekend.
Then, adding fuel to the fire, TMZ also posted footage recorded in October 2017 depicting Thompson kissing one woman while a different woman groped him and touched his crotch.
Just days before going into labor, reports of the Good American designer being heartbroken triggered compassion from many 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' fans as well as from those who were not. The fans were especially hit with the cheating scandal because they knew how Khloe had been trying to get pregnant for ages and they couldn't believe that her dream was coming true at the cost of loyalty.
So naturally, the enraged fans slammed Tristan on social media as well as booed him during his Wednesday’s home game at The Quicken Loans Arena against the New York Knicks. As of now the cloud over the cheating scandal has not cleared, but ever since the birth of the baby girl, the priority and focus is on the newest member of the Kardashian family.
But for Tristan, the baby is his second child in a year's time. Before Tristan started dating Khloe, he was in a long term relationship with Jordan Craig, a lifestyle blogger and the mother of his first child, Prince Oliver. As of today, Prince is 15 months old.
The stars of cheating align as the timeline proves that Tristan may have cheated on Jordan with the youngest Kardashian sister when the two started dating in September 2016. At that time, Jordan was six months pregnant.
The TMZ footage of Thompson leaked recently, prove that he was back to his cheating game with Khloe, as he was kissing and getting groped by other women when she was only three months pregnant.
Many have pointed that it was Karma doing its rounds with Khloe since she was the girl Tristan cheated on Jordan with. The Instagram model was quick to respond to rumors taking to the social media, and saying her happiness doesn't come at the expense of Khloe's.
"If you respect yourself and you respect others, you would never make light of the misfortune of anyone," she wrote in an Instagram Story. "Nor would you feel indemnified when it comes at the expense of others."
While this classy response negates the Karma theory of fans, we can only see Khloe as the victim since Thompson has reportedly cheated on her five times or more.
The first trigger we know of was on April 10, when The Daily Mail published a video showing Thompson getting close and sharing a kiss with an unidentified brunette. The clip was reportedly taken at PH-D Lounge in Manhattan on Saturday night on April 7. Though the video is unclear and Thompson is covered in his hood, his outfits match other photos from the club. Many sources reportedly identified the mystery brunette as New York strip bar worker and Instagram model Lani Blair.
Another video, was simultaneously published by TMZ later on April 10, showing Thomspon and the mystery woman heading into his team hotel, the Four Seasons in Manhattan, together. The footage was also reportedly taken on Saturday night.
Page Six reported that they spent four hours there before heading out to Soho House, a members-only club, in the Meatpacking District. At 5 am on Sunday, they were spotted returning to the hotel again. The woman was seen leaving the hotel on Monday, at around 8 pm, wearing the same outfit from the night before. She was also photographed holding an overnight Louis Vuitton bag.
A dramatic twist to the unfolding drama came about when the mystery woman came back to claim that she is pregnant with Tristan's baby. Instagram user by the name of ms.stephaniee released a graphic sex tape tagging his Instagram handle and claiming to be pregnant. But that was quickly put down and she's made her Instagram private.
And amidst all these, the video of Tristan cozying up with two women in October continue to do the rounds.
The fifth woman brewing in his cheating scandals is a woman named Tania, who was frequently seen with Tristan several times since November 2017 and its even alleged that she came to one of his basketball games.
With a cheating record as heavy as this, a source told People that Tristan is a serial cheater.
“Tristan has been consistently cheating on Khloé,” a source alleged to the site. “He’s a serial cheater. And there will be more women to come out of the woodwork.”
In 2014, the athlete created controversy in his own circle, when during a pre-game interview, he bent down and kissed Fox Sports Ohio reporter Allie Clifton on the side of her head after answering her question about his planned playing approach for that night.
"Oh, hey!" shocked Clifton exclaimed as she turned to the camera.
Red flag alert should have shot up then and there itself. But since it did not, Khloe is reportedly believed to have faith in God's plan and her fans, friends and family have been supportive.
One of the most common hate comment spotted on Tristan's Instagram was that he hurt his daughter before any man could. Khloe's friends have also supported her especially Khadijah Haqq (Malika's twin), who took to Instagram with a quote, "The best thing a father can do for their children is love their mother."
The post was shared on April 11.
Sentiments have been hard hit.
But The Revenge Body star is no stranger to heartbreak.
Khloe Kardashian and first husband, former NBA player Lamar Odom ended their four years of marriage in 2016 after his infidelity and drug use reports.
The truth came out during an explosive moment on KUWTK in 2014.
“Let me tell you something — last year on my birthday, I lied to everyone, because I had to lie and say I was with my husband, when in fact my husband was missing with another girl, OK?” Kardashian yelled to her sisters. “And I lied, and I gave up my Beyonce tickets to Kendall, that’s how badly I was hiding. And I didn’t have a birthday, I was alone, and lied to everyone.”
So when Tristan came to scene, her fans were happy to see her find love again. So just nine days after Tristan's first child's birthday with Jordan, Khloe and Tristan announced their pregnancy.
But we should have known, once a cheater, always a repeater!
