Khloe Kardashian Serious With Tristan Thompson, Learned From Lamar Odom Relationship
Khloe Kardashian has moved on from her marriage to Lamar Odom and has been dating Tristan Thompson for a while now. Tristan Thompson, 26, plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the couple have a long-distance relationship but find time to spend with each other.
With Lamar Odom, he played basketball in Los Angeles, and it was easier for the former couple to see each other. According to Us Magazine, despite the long-distance, Khloe and Tristan are getting more serious.
“She flies to see him almost every week,” a source tells the publication. “Things are going really well. The relationship is very serious.”
Khloe prefers to keep Tristan off her social media and only posts a picture of them together occasionally. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star last posted a picture of Tristan in April this year.
Khloe and Lamar had a reality show together, and the relationship constantly made headlines with cheating rumors and the LA Lakers star near-fatal drug overdose in a brothel in Las Vegas. Khloe and Lamar married in 2009 after dating each other for about a month. After seven years of marriage, Khloe filed for divorce, and it was finalized around December of 2016. Khloe has reportedly learned from her mistakes with Lamar Odom and is taking things slowly with Tristan Thompson.
Lamar Odom has been on the road to recovery, with the former basketballer being spotted in the gym trying to get back in shape. He expressed interest in getting back with Khloe despite their divorce being finalized.
Khloe’s family reportedly approve of her relationship with Tristan, and the couple are already discussing marriage in the future.
Some fans have blamed Lamar Odom’s woes on a Kardashian curse as his basketball career seemed to decline following his marriage to the reality star. It was reported that Cavaliers officials were concerned about the talented basketballer’s relationship with Khloe.
However, some Cavalier fans are convinced that Tristan Thompson has broken the curse following the team’s NBA Championship victory in 2016.
Recently, Rashad McCants implied that he was a victim of the Kardashian curse. McCants claimed that he could have been a $70 million NBA player if he did not date Khloe, according to Deadspin. They dated for about six months in 2008, and his career went downhill after their relationship. Some have accused the basketballer of blaming his own shortcomings as an athlete on Khloe, who branded her former boyfriend “a loser.”
Khloe has expressed interest in starting a family with Tristan and said that he is a good father.
“I would love to have a family [with Thompson],” Kardashian told ES magazine in an April interview (via Page Six). “We’ve talked about it. He [already] is a father, and I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father. I definitely want to be a mom. But I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, ‘The clock is ticking.’ I feel in my soul it will happen.”
Thompson had a son a named Prince in December of 2016 with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig. Like Kanye, Tristan appears occasionally on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but it is unlikely that he will appear in a spin-off with Khloe as Lamar did during their marriage.
It seems that Khloe is willing to take the relationship further once Tristan is ready to propose. The 26-year-old basketball star is six years younger than Khloe, and some suspect the young NBA star is not ready to settle down.
Khloe has allegedly been robbed by a close friend of the family.
She tweeted, “What would you do if you found out a friend was stealing from you?”
