Thanks for nothing! Tristan Thompson’s rumored side piece Lani Blair has made countless headlines ever since news broke that the NBA player cheated on Khloé Kardashian, but now his mistress tells In Touch exclusively that she doesn’t credit Tristan for her fame. When asked what it was like to gain so many followers because of Tristan’s cheating scandal, Lani says that she’s “always had a solid fanbase.” Take that, Tristan!

As previously reported by In Touch, Lani celebrated her birthday in Las Vegas over the weekend at Crazy Horse 3 Gentlemen’s club. The Instagram model broke her silence on her alleged relationship with Tristan, telling In Touch, “I’m just here to have a good time, have a couple drinks, and enjoy Vegas,” when asked about the Cavaliers star.

But even though Lani remained coy about her current involvement with Tristan, In Touch exclusively learned that they’re still speaking — and he’s spoiling her with gifts! “Lani has been complaining to Tristan about going on a shopping spree like he’s promised time and time again,” a source shared. “This time, he got clever and sent her a box full of expensive Good American jeans from Khloé’s denim line.”

According to the insider, Lani was “just happy Tristan sent her gifts which shows he cares,” even though Khloé designed the jeans. “Lani even snapped a few pics of herself in the jeans, texted them to Tristan, and said she looks better in them. He replied back with two hearts.”
