These days, Tristan Thompson is known more for the way that he has treated women than his basketball career. Outside of avid sports fans, people really only got to know Thompson’s name after he began dating Khloe Kardashian.
At the beginning of their relationship, the two seemed happy enough. They even had a baby, True Thompson, together. But the happiness was short-lived.
The drama with Thompson
Just before Kardashian gave birth to their child, photos of Thompson with another woman began to float around the internet. Kardashian was obviously devastated but decided to work things out with Thompson for the sake of their family.
But the basketball player just couldn’t behave for too long. Later, he was spotted kissing Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods, at a party. That was the last straw for Kardashian and she broke things off with Thompson for good.
What does Thompson have to say about the whole thing?
We all know how Kardashian feels about the situation. She has an entire television show devoted to her and her family expressing their opinions and feelings. But Thompson has stayed pretty mums the word on the whole situation. At least, until now.
“I have spent the last few months training for my upcoming nba season and making sure that I am in the best shape possible,” Thompson tweeted yesterday. “I have not been on vacations at all this summer and the current rumors spreading are 100 percent false.”
He also wanted to address the rumors floating around that he got together with Kardashian while he was still dating Jordan Craig. Craig was pregnant with their child at the time.
Craig claimed that his relationship with the reality star caused her pregnancy complications.
“Their relationship went viral and everything took a turn for the worst,” she said in court documents, obtained by RadarOnline, filed as part of a child support claim in November 2018. “Every day several articles were published worldwide mocking my new unfortunate reality and my pregnancy would now become one of the most popular gossip headlines due to the woman Tristan was now publicly dating during my pregnancy.”
Thompson has now denied that there was overlap in the relationships.
“Also, when I met Khloe I was SINGLE,” he tweeted.
“The negative comments that are constantly being directed towards her are unnecessary. She does not deserve all this backlash for my wrong doings. Both Khloè and Jordan have been nothing but great mothers to my kids,” he continued.
Other allegations against Thompson
Craig also recently claimed that Thompson had been bribing her to get her to remain single.
In her child support battle deposition in January of this year, Craig testified that Thompson gave her $112,000 in November 2017, according to RadarOnline.
When Thompson’s attorney, Peter Lauzon, asked why she received that money, she said it wasn’t just a gift.
“Well, if we really want to put this on here, that was part of a bribe,” she said.
Craig said in her deposition “that he [Thompson] would help me if I wasn’t, like, dating anybody or talking to anybody, and that I would have to come see him.”
Thompson has not responded to those claims.
