High School And College Career

Relationship

The basketball player is not presently dating anyone. The former Longhorn, though, is said to have reconnected with his baby mom and ex-girlfriend Khloé Kardashian.

Even though they are not together, they maintain a cordial connection for the sake of their child’s appropriate development.

Prince Tristan Thompson, their four-year-old son, is their only child.

Controversy

Several cheating scandals have engulfed the athlete. He was allegedly cheating on Jordan Craig, his son’s mother, during her first month of pregnancy. Thompson, though, has disputed all of the charges.

According to many accounts, he was cheating on his ex-girlfriend Khloé Kardashian. Despite this, Kardashian has denied the charges.

She reported that they began dating following his separation from Craig. Furthermore, the NBA player has cheated on her several times.

His cheating claims first surfaced while Khloé was pregnant and approaching her due date. However, it is believed that he began cheating on her much earlier.

A video of him kissing two other girls revealed his betrayal of the pregnant media celebrity.

Soon later, another video of him kissing a model in New York City went viral. The Revenge Body host was days away from giving birth at the time. But they worked things out for their daughter’s sake.

Regardless, he cheated on her with her sister’s closest friend, Jordyn Woods. The cheating incident drew a lot of attention.

It was also shown on KUWTK. The Kardashians admitted that she felt deceived since she believed Woods to be a member of the family.

Jordyn has been shut off from Khloe and Kylie Jenner’s life since then. She also grew apart from Thompson.

Whatever the case may be, the former couple has come a long way. They co-parent while providing a positive environment for their daughter’s growth.
