Tristan Thompson’s life off the court is a story in itself, as he’s had his share of scandals and ‘baby mama’ drama like many celebrities have. Despite it all, Thompson is still a proud father to his kids. Who are they? Well here are five questions and answers about Tristan Thompson’s children.
1. How many kids does Tristan Thompson have?
2. How many kids does he have with Khloe Kardashian?
Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian had True Thompson together, and although there were rumors that Khloe was pregnant with their second child, Khloe shot them down.
3. Are he and Khloe together?
Tristan and Khloe first began dating in 2016, and they welcomed True Thompson in 2018. They broke up after two separate cheating scandals in 2019, but they got back together in June 2020 and their relationship has apparently been great ever since. Khloe and Tristan hope to give True a sibling in the future.
4. Does Tristan see his son?
Tristan is rarely seen with Prince Thompson, but he does pay $40,000 a month in child support to Jordan on Prince’s behalf. In April 2020, Tristan Thompson stated that he wanted to have another baby with Khloe and was blasted by fans for it, who accused him of neglecting Prince.
5. Does he have a ‘baby mama’ named Kimberly Alexander?
No. In May 2020, Tristan filed a libel lawsuit against Kimberly Alexander, a woman who persistently claims that he is the father of her 5-year-old son. In the lawsuit, Tristan says that he took a paternity test in January that “definitively concluded that [he] is not the father” and says that Alexander is just “desperate to achieve her 15 minutes of fame.”
Tristan’s attorney Marty Singer’s statement about the lawsuit reads: “Alexander has persisted in publicly proclaiming that Thompson is her child’s father and she has maliciously accused Thompson of being a deadbeat dad, ‘neglecting’ and failing to take financial responsibility for the child since birth. Such statements are absolutely false and are defamatory per se. To quote Michael Jackson, ‘the kid is not [his] son.’”
After a stellar season for the Texas Longhorns, Tristan Thompson was drafted fourth overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2011 NBA Draft, thus beginning his career as an elite NBA center. With his size and strength, Thompson became known for his explosive playstyle and his aggressive rebounding. Between 2014-2018, Thompson played in four consecutive NBA Finals, but the highlight of his career came in 2016. In 2016, not only did Thompson score a lucrative 5-year extension worth $82 million with the Cavaliers, he led them to an NBA Championship victory alongside his legendary teammate LeBron James; defeating the Golden State Warriors in seven games after the Cavaliers were down three games to one.
