Where Kardashians go, drama follows. Khloé Kardashian might be dating Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson but that doesn’t mean all his teammates are a fan of the 33-year-old reality star. Recently Khloé and LeBron James have been butting heads — sources exclusively told Life & Style that the athlete would rather the star direct her spotlight elsewhere.
In a Snapchat video, the 32-year-old team leader repeatedly called a camera crew that showed up at a Cavs preseason workout a “s–tshow.” Khloé denied claims that the crew was filming for Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but the damage was already done. The source explained, “LeBron feels basketball should be kept separate from the Kardashian ‘distraction.'”

And this tension between Khloé, Tristan, and LeBron has been brewing for quite some time. “Last season, players told Tristan they didn’t want the Kardashians around,” the source continued. “When Khloé sits courtside, it’s annoying that the focus goes from the game to reality TV.” Yikes!
Of course, that hasn’t stopped the star from showing up and rooting for her boyfriend turned baby daddy. And why would it? She can’t help the fact that she’s a Kardashian. But, not all fans feel the same way. In fact, a lot of people buy into the “Kardashian Curse” that falls on all men the Kardashian women date. After news broke that Khloé was expecting her first child with Tristan, fans took to Twitter to voice their opinions.
“Tristan thompson got khloe pregnant after lebron told him to cut her off and you people still think he staying with the cavs? Noo wayyy lmao,” one fan tweeted. Another added, “The fact that Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with Tristan Thompson’s child is just a guarantee that LeBron isn’t staying on the Cavs.” Tristan and LeBron may be on the same team on the court, but they’re definitely on opposing sides IRL.
