Just because Tristan Thompson has been balling with the Cleveland Cavaliers for nearly eight years, doesn’t mean that the professional athlete spends all of his time in the Buckeye State. In fact, as of May, Tristan, 28, resides in an $6.5 million L.A. mansion during the offseason.
Side note: Yes, he does have a home in Ohio — and while the place is an impressive 6,242-square-feet, it doesn’t hold a candle to his California bachelor pad. For starters, it’s 9,864-square-feet and features a ton of enviable amenities like a marble patio, spa, in-ground pool (with a basketball hoop in it!), media room and a three-car garage.
Prior to Tristan’s highly publicized cheating scandal with Jordyn Woods, he and ex Khloé Kardashian spent a majority of their time together in Cleveland, along with the pair’s daughter, True Thompson.
However, the longtime KUWTK star, 36, apparently had no desire to be there. “Cleveland never felt like home to Khloé and she hated being apart from her family and friends in L.A.,” a source told Life & Style at the time. “So, she spent as little time as possible there, which became a major problem for her and Tristan.”
While Tristan likely snagged a place in L.A. to be closer to True, 17 months, while he wasn’t playing basketball, perhaps he also wanted to make Koko happy. After all, it’s been almost eight months since he hooked up with Kylie Jenner’s ex-best friend and he’s still thirsting after the Good American designer … on Instagram, no less!
That’s right, y’all, on September 21, Tristan had the, er, nerve to comment “perfection” and a heart-eyed emoji on some super sexy shots of Khloé posing in a denim bustier. Sure, we 100 percent agree with Tristan’s sentiment, the execution may have been a little misguided.
Unsurprisingly, plenty of Koko’s followers thought the same — and let it be known! “Back up!!” one user commented. “And not for you, just for herself,” added another. “You’ve gotta be kidding me. Boy, [you’re] something else!!” a third person echoed.
Well, here’s hoping Tristan wasn’t too hurt by the backlash. However, if he was, he has plenty of rooms in his house to sulk in.
