Addicted to Adultery: Tristan Thompson

By Cat Kemp

This past year has been a difficult one for professional basketball player Tristan Thompson. Father to True, Thompson has faced heavy cheating and manipulation allegations from True’s mom: Khloe Kardashian. With a second child on the way for the two, Thompson recently admitted to cheating on Khloe and getting another person pregnant with the full awareness of hiring a surrogate for Kardashian. Unfortunately, cheating allegations have been common for the couple, with the first one reported in 2016. Even worse, days before the birth of their first-born, video proof of Thompson cheating was released on Twitter. The truth of the current accusation, however, was confirmed when Texas trainer Maralee Nicholas sued the current team Thompson plays for. She sued due to her claiming a pregnancy with Thompson and requesting child support. Due to posts on Kardashian’s social media, the couple still appears to be together; however, her large fan base certainly seem to continue to dislike Thompson. Many fans became heavily invested in the allegations, not unsurprisingly due to the large following of both people. The case also gained lots of attention from The Kardashians, a television show following the life of Khloe and her family. Fans were outraged when they were once again notified of Thompsons being disloyal, and consistently spoke out on platforms such as Twitter and Instagram. Overall, although the couple seems to stay afloat, Thompson’s reputation certainly does not.
