That’s Kardashian closeness.
Kim Kardashian and her daughter North West attended the Los Angeles Lakers game on Friday night, where they visibly supported Khloe Kardashian’s cheating ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson with a homemade sign.
The SKIMS founder, 42, and her mini-me, 9, were photographed holding a sign that read “Tristan Thompson” in purple and gold as they sat courtside for the game against the Golden State Warriors.
Naturally, fans on social media had a lot to say about Kim’s public support for the 32-year-old Thompson.
“Let us support the repetition of the deceptions of our delinquent sister. This family,” one reviewer wrote on Twitter, with another adding: “So weird to me how Kim K can keep cheering for Tristan after the way this man has gone after his sister. It could never be me boii.
A third chimed in, writing: “Man doesn’t even play… what is Kim’s obsession with Tristan? When has she ever gotten so hard on any of her sister’s exes?
Another argued: “I like Kim but the way she stands up for Tristan is fucking weird.”
Thompson has had a complicated and cheating relationship with Khloe, 38. The former couple share two children: a 5-year-old daughter, True, and a 9-month-old son, Tatum.
Khloé was days away from giving birth to True when footage surfaced of Thompson apparently making out with another woman at a nightclub.
Page Six exclusively reported at the time that the “Good American” co-founder “was furious” and “was devastated” after hearing that Thompson had cheated on her.
Later in the month, Kim appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and criticized Thompson’s rogue behavior.
“I don’t even know how to describe it, besides it’s so fucked up,” he said. “We really supported Khloé and still do. She’s so strong and she’s doing the best she can.”
However, the two reconciled during the coronavirus pandemic and even planned to have the second baby.
“I could get some embryos and have a brother [for True]”, Khloé told Thompson during an April 2021 episode of E! show. “I may need to borrow some sperm or get some from you.”
The athlete replied that he was “on board”.
In November 2021, the duo conceived their son via surrogate, only for Maralee Nichols to file a nasty paternity lawsuit against Thompson the following month.
Thompson initially denied getting the fitness model pregnant, but came clean after a DNA test confirmed he was the father of her child, Theo.

Nichols claimed that their baby was conceived on the NBA player’s 30th birthday in March 2021, while he was reportedly engaged to Khloé.
It is not the first time that Kim has shown her support for the love rat.
Kim came under fire on social media for spending a Thanksgiving celebration with Thompson last year when the two visited a Los Angeles juvenile detention center to dine with young men.
Last month he took his eldest son, 7-year-old Saint, to a game and made him wear a yellow jersey with the number 9 on it.
Thompson was awarded the digit when he was traded to the Los Angeles-based team in April.
It was Kim who broke the news to her sister that a paternity suit had been filed against Thompson.
