Khloe Kardashian “liked” an Instagram post announcing her baby daddy Tristan Thompson was signed by the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers are in desperate need of a backup center for the oft-injured Anthony Davis. The team worked out free agent centers Tony Bradley and Tristan last week before signing Tristan and guard Shaquille Harrison on Sunday.

Khloe was the first person to congratulate Tristan. She dropped a like under the announcement on Instagram.


Us Weekly magazine confirmed that Tristan moved into a $12.8 million dollar mansion just .2 miles from Khloe’s house in the Hidden Hills neighborhood of California.

“Khloe and Tristan live .2 miles away from each other in Hidden Hills,” a source exclusively told the magazine earlier this month. “Tristan is thrilled about having his own place so close to Khloe so he can visit her and the kids as often as possible.”

Tristan and Khloe, 38, share two children – daughter True, 4, and a baby boy, 8 months old. While Tristan has 2 children, a son named Prince with ex-girlfriend and model Jordan Craig, and a son named Theo with fitness trainer Maralee Nichols.


Tristan and Khloe have had their ups and downs over the years. Mainly due to his reputation as a chick magnet.

Khloe is making sure to keep Tristan close. On April 5, they were photographed arriving at McDonald’s drive-thru in Khloe’s car, according to Hollywood Life.

Apparently, all is forgiven now that he’s signed to the Lakers.

Tristan was a 1st round draft pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2011. He played alongside LeBron James for 4 seasons. They won an NBA title in 2016.
