Tristan Thompson’s Mom Suddenly Dies After Reported Heart Attack, Khloe Kardashian Travels To Toronto With Him

​ ​ ​ ​

Tristan Thompson’s mother, Andrea Thompson, has reportedly died after suffering a heart attack in her Toronto home. Paparazzi caught photos of the NBA baller and his on-again, off-again girlfriend Khloe Kardashian arriving in Toronto on a private jet together. More details inside…

2023 just took an unexpected turn for NBA player Tristan Thompson.

Andrea Thompson, Tristan Thompson's mother, died unexpectedly earlier this week. According to reports, Andrea suffered a heart attack at her Toronto home on January 5th. After receiving the devastating news, Tristan hopped on a private jet from Los Angeles so he could be with his family in Toronto.

His kids’ mother, Khloe Kardashian, was right by his side. The 31-year-old NBA player and the 38-year-old reality star were photographed leaving a private jet together after touching down in Toronto.

"This was unexpected," a source told E! News. "She was incredibly close to his mother, and like Khloe and the Kardashian family always do, they will come together and support their loved ones in their most difficult time of need. Tristan is the father of Khloe's kids and she and her entire family will always be there for him." 

Over the years, Tristan has been open about his close relationship with his mother, whom he said was his biggest motivator to go pro after leaving college basketball at the University of Texas.

“He knew it was time, but he was a little bit nervous, so I told him, ‘No, it is time,'” Andrea told reporters in 2011 after Tristan was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers. “I told him, ‘No, it is time. You are ready. You must show the whole world that you are ready.'”

In May 2020, Tristan posted a Mother’s Day tribute for his mother, sharing how loving and compassionate she was about her children.

”Happy Mother’s Day Mommy!,” he wrote in the caption of a video featuring his mother. “One day isn’t enough to praise and lift you high. Everyday is your day. Thank you for all the sacrifices you made for me and my brothers. I love you and I’m soo lucky to have been chosen as your son. Not all superheroes wear capes.”

The former Boston Celtics player has shared several photos and videos featuring his mother over the years.

One photo on his timeline features a picture of his mother holding his daughter, True Thompson, whom he shares with Khloe Kardashian. The former couple also have a baby boy that they welcomed last August via surrogate.

We’re sending up prayers for Tristan and his family during this unimaginable time.
