KIM Kardashian congratulated Tristan Thompson via her Instagram stories this past weekend on his signing of a $19 million dollar Celtics deal, following fan suspicion that he has split with Khloé.
The mother of four wrote: “Congrats @realtristan13, Boston here we come!!!”
Khloé’s on-and-off boyfriend previously spent nine seasons playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers, before agreeing to this new two-year commitment to the Boston team.
The 29-year-old athlete’s agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, revealed that the official deal has been sealed to Yahoo Sports on Saturday.
Khloé, 36, and the father of her two-year-old daughter True Thompson, have had a tumultuous relationship since July of 2016.
The pair originally split when Tristan was found getting intimate with several other women while Khloé was pregnant with their child.
The reality star then gave her baby daddy another chance, before he was found kissing family friend Jordyn Woods at a Los Angeles party.
After some time apart, the couple decided to quarantine together for their daughter’s sake, leading to a rekindled romance in August of 2020.
There has been recent speculation that there is yet again trouble in paradise after Khloé posted a cryptic quote to her Instagram feed last weekend.
The blank white background held the quote: “A happy soul is the best shield for a cruel world – Atticus,” leading fans to believe there could be new issues with the celebrity couple.
The E! star wrote no caption of her own on the photo, leading hundreds of fans in the comments to add their own speculations.
Some suggested she was using her platform to “sub quote” Tristan, while others supported her for focusing on being a “happy soul” throughout the ups and downs of their relationship.
Others wrote: “You deserve everything good in the world,” and “Love to see your positivity.”
Khloé also recently unfollowed Tristan on the platform and then posted a similar quote: “You glow different when you’re not hating, hurting, bitter or messy.”
Larsa, 46, told the podcast hosts, Dax Holt and Adam Glyn: “I was seeing him, I had him come to LA. I brought him to a party Kim had. I introduced him to all of them.”
The now ex-best friend continued: “Then a week later, or 10 days later he started seeing Khloe. Which is fine, I don’t even care. It’s whatever.
“I’m the type of person that doesn’t chase what’s not for me. I will never chase a man; I will never put a leash on a man. I don’t do that. I feel like, let you be great. If you want to be with other people, go ahead. I’m great by myself.”
When asked about Khloé and Tristan’s relationship, Larsa gushed: “I feel like they have a beautiful baby together and they need to work it out.
“If they love each other then God bless. I think when you have a family with someone it’s really hard to break up.”
Rob Kardashian, 33, also reached out with congratulations to the basketball player on his new exciting venture.
The reality star wrote: “LET’S GO @realtristan13,” and Tristan reposted both well-wishes to his own profile, commenting “Yessirskii.”
The Kardashian clan seems well and ready to put Tristan’s past behind him, and a source told US Weekly earlier this Fall that Khloé is ready to move forward.
The source explained: “It is always a worry that Tristan can go back to his old ways, especially once he’s on the road and working again, but they have spent so much time trying to heal from past wrongdoings, so this isn’t her main focus at this point.”
The insider concluded: “She wants to move on and eliminate that chapter from their lives, but not forget about it at the same time.”
Khloé has not publicly spoken about the current status of her relationship since then, leading many to believe the couple is headed for a breakup once more.
