Larsa Pippen Reveals Secret Fling With Tristan Thompson
When you think about Larsa Pippen’s dating history, Scottie Pippen is probably the first person to come to mind. But he’s definitely not the only one.
Though Pippen tends to be private about her personal life, she has dated several other people in the years since she entered the public eye. Speaking about her past in a November interview, Pippen revealed she even allegedly had a secret fling with Tristan Thompson.
Larsa Pippen claims she dated Tristan Thompson
Appearing on The Hollywood Raw podcast in an interview published on Nov. 9, Pippen revealed she dated Thompson in the mid-2010s. She described it as something casual that lasted for some time before he moved on and started dating Khloé Kardashian.
“I kind of was seeing Tristan before Khloé — before Khloé or any of them even knew he existed. I was seeing him. I had him come to L.A. I brought him to a party Kim [Kardashian West] had. I introduced him to all of them and then a week later, maybe 10 days later, he started seeing Khloé,” she shared.
Noting that she was unbothered by the way things ended, Pippen added, “I don’t even care. It’s just, whatever. I’m the type of person, I don’t really, like, chase what’s not for me. I will never chase a man.”
Tristan Thompson went public with Khloé Kardashian in 2016
Thompson and Kardashian first sparked romance rumors in the summer of 2016 when they were spotted out together. They went public later that year and went on to welcome their first child, daughter True, in April 2018.
Their relationship stalled around the same time, as it was revealed that Thompson had allegedly cheated on Kardashian with two other women. But it seems that they were eventually able to patch things up. But then they split again in February 2019 when it news broke that Thompson had allegedly cheated on Kardashian with Jordyn Woods.
Pippen was actually the one who broke the news to the Good American founder after learning of the affair through blogger Jason Lee, who told her one of his staffers had seen Thompson and Woods together at a party.
The news left Kardashian heartbroken, but she reportedly eventually took Thompson back. They were just seen together for Halloween 2020, when they dressed up as a family.
What Larsa Pippen thinks about their reconciliation
Despite the way things turned out, Pippen said on the podcast that she likes Kardashian and Thompson as a couple. “I love them together. I feel like they have a beautiful baby together and they need to work it out. You know, if they love each other, God bless,” she added.
The interview comes as Pippen continues to be on the outs with the Kardashian family. Rumors of a fallout started over the summer of 2020 when Kanye West tweeted her name along with a thinking emoji. Pippen later confirmed their fractured relationship on the aforementioned podcast, saying West “brainwashed” the family into thinking she was no good. But despite everything, she signaled she would be open to making amends.
So far, neither the Kardashians nor Thompson has addressed her comments. But perhaps we’ll hear something soon.
