For Father’s Day, Caitlyn Jenner got Tristan Thompson a heaping helping of shade, and based on the way the NBA player celebrated the holiday, it seems like he may have deserved it. Instead of spending time with either of his kids — son Prince or daughter True — the star elected to hit the club and party with Drake. On Sunday, June 16, photographers caught the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star leaving a celebration the rapper had thrown in honor of the Toronto Raptors’ victory in the NBA championship.
It seems like Tristan, 28, faced some shade on all fronts. Neither Khloé Kardashian nor Jordan Craig shared any kind of message in his honor, despite the fact that he’s the father of both of their children. In fact, recently revealed court documents seemed to show that Jordan, 27, doesn’t seem to think that Tristan is much of a father at all. According to testimony obtained by Radar Online, the model said her son’s dad has only visited him nine times since his birth in December 2016.
“I have given Tristan almost two years to step up and assume the fatherly role for our son,” she wrote in paperwork for their child support battle. “As set forth below in detail, he has failed to do so. … I cannot force Tristan to be a father. I have been and will continue to be the sole caretaker of our son. It is my pleasure to care for him daily and tend to his needs.”
She also alleged that the basketball player used their son as an excuse to see her after paying her to stay single. “Tristan began requesting to FaceTime with Prince and even began to have Prince and I visit him while he was on the road traveling during the season so that he could spend more time with Prince,” she said. “This was short lived. Tristan and I remained friends for months. However, he eventually made it clear that he did not want me to ‘see’ or date anyone. I could not agree to this. It became clear to me that his interest was never in Prince when I told him I no longer wanted this type of friendship with him, and he became completely absent in Prince’s life.”
Khloé had her own “truth” to share after Jordan said that the KUWTK star’s relationship with Tristan forced her onto bed rest during her pregnancy. “Tristan told me that he had an ex that was pregnant. Obviously, I was reluctant about us continuing to date or start a relationship,” she said on her Instagram Story. “He pleaded with me that the relationship was over long before we met. … If for any reason this is NOT in fact the truth, I am so completely and utterly sorry that TRISTAN and his inner circle would lie on something like this!”
