Andrea Thompson, Tristan Thompson’s mother, reportedly passed away unexpectedly in Toronto. Andrea reportedly had a heart attack on January 5 at home and was taken to a nearby hospital, but she was unable to be revived. After learning of the heart attack, sources claim that the basketball player quickly boarded a flight from Los Angeles to Toronto, and images obtained by the Daily Mail reveal that his ex-girlfriend Khloé Kardashian travelled with him. Although Bustle contacted Thompson’s agent for comment, no response was received right away.
Kim Kardashian is “extremely close” to Andrea and is determined to back Thompson, according to sources who spoke to Entertainment Tonight. Neither Thompson nor Kardashian have made any public comments as of yet. According to the source, Khloe was very close to Tristan’s mother. As with any lover, friend, etc., the family will be the first to support them during this tough moment. According to reports, a private funeral service for his mother has already been planned, and Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner, who is also a Kardashian, are anticipated to attend.
By including his mother in countless Instagram images over the years, including ones with his and Kardashian’s daughter True Thompson, Thompson has made it known that he is close to his mother. In addition, the ex-couple is parents to a 5-month-old baby who was conceived prior to Kardashian and Thompson’s separation at the end of 2021 and was born via surrogate in August.
Andrea’s untimely death has left me in such heartbreak, Jenner wrote. “Tristan, Amari, Dishawn, and Daniel are in my heart, in my prayers, and in all of my love. You were a wonderful, committed, unselfish mother and a wonderful, loving, and wonderful grandmother. You were such a gift to your family! Andrea, I will miss you. I will miss your great light and positive attitude. We appreciate all of your prayers, support, and words of encouragement. Rest in peace, lovely angel.
In honour of Mother’s Day in 2020, the NBA player uploaded a video of him and Andrea discussing his upbringing while calling her “Mommy.” “One day isn’t enough to praise and pull you high,” he said as the post’s caption. You have a day every day. I appreciate everything you gave up for my brothers and I. I adore you, and I count myself extremely fortunate to be your son. Superheroes do not all wear capes.
When her son was selected for the NBA draught in 2016, Andrea expressed her love for him in a public article for the Toronto Star. Tristan, she wrote, “is the kind of kid who only needs the door to open a crack and he’s in.” When he was younger, I frequently heard the statement, “Your son is extraordinary. Basketball is his sport. He is trainable. He is the leader. I therefore just assist my son. He always says that all he needs from me is to be his mother, therefore all I do is provide him with a cushion to rest his head on. Thompson’s younger brothers Dishawn, Daniel, and Amari are all left behind.
