Khloe Kardashian super supportive of Tristan Thompson’s decision to sign a $19 million deal with the Boston Celtics — even if it means that they’ll be on opposite coasts while he’s in-season. “Khloe is just happy that Tristan has a team to call home,” a source explained to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “The off-season can be really stressful and he’s been training a few hours a day, at least six days a week, to stay in shape. It’s a weight off their shoulders to actually have a plan in place now.”
Tristan has been living in Los Angeles to be close to Khloe and their daughter, True Thompson, ever since the coronavirus lockdown began in March. His previous team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, didn’t make the 2020 NBA Playoffs, which meant he didn’t even have to leave his family over the summer, either. However, with the next season starting in just a few weeks (Dec. 22), Tristan will have to make work his priority once again.
Luckily, he and Khloe already have a plan in place for their new bi-coastal co-parenting lifestyle. “Khloe’s plan will be to stay in L.A. with True during the pandemic, and Tristan will see them when he can,” our insider added. “I’s too early to say how comfortable they’ll feel about visiting frequently. It’s all very new, but Khloe and the family are happy for Tristan. It was really stressful seeing where he would land, so to have an answer is nice.”
Khloe and Tristan broke up just ahead of True’s first birthday in 2019, but got to an amicable place as co-parents by the end of that year. When Khloe contracted COVID-19 in March, Tristan was her rock as he took care of True and delivered meals to Khloe’s bedroom door. However, on the most recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which was filmed in May, Khloe admitted to still having “reservations” about getting back together with the father of her child.
After all, the reason the two split was because Tristan cheated on Khloe with Jordyn Woods — and that wasn’t the first time he’d been caught being unfaithful. Understandably, Khloe has her guard up when it comes to Tristan. Still, in the months since that KUWTK footage was filmed, they’ve been spending more and more time together. Tristan was even seen giving Khloe a kiss at Kim Kardashian’s 40th birthday party, and he joined the closest KarJenner friends and family members for Kim’s birthday trip to a private island. Regardless of their relationship status, though, Khloe and Tristan are clearly committed to making True’s life as best as it can be!
