Tristan Thompson Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Leaving Thirsty Comments on All of Khloe Kardashian’s Photos

His ex may still feel burned by their split, but Tristan Thompson is ready to turn over a new leaf with Khloé Kardashian. One of his many ways of doing that? Leaving thirsty AF comments on pretty much all of her Instagram pics. Fans have spotted his heart-eye and drooling emojis in the responses to her selfies, glammed-up shots and snaps with daughter True. But is it working?

It seems to be. On June 9, fans noticed the parents were getting pretty cozy in an Instagram Story shared by NBA player Jordan Clarkson. Tristan seemingly had his arm around the reality star while hanging out together at a small party.

A source told In Touch exclusively they “have been trying to work their relationship out for a while now.”

“Khloé was really worried about going public,” the insider added, revealing she was afraid of the inevitable “backlash” the news would create. “She didn’t want to hear everyone’s opinions. She takes everything to heart — all the tweets, IG comments, etc. — and she reads everything. ”

But reconciliation rumors go as far back as last year. A cryptic post the KUWTK star shared right before New Year’s Eve only spurred those speculations. “The beautiful thing about life is that you can always change, grow and get better,” read a quote she shared. “You aren’t defined by your past. You aren’t your mistakes.”

Even big sister Kim Kardashian seems to be warming back up to her niece’s father. Following reports that she stood up to boo Tristan during a basketball game where the L.A. Lakers faced off against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Keeks shut down the rumors. “I was there to support him!” she wrote on Twitter on Tuesday, January 14. “[I] was cheering, screaming, ‘LET’S GO TRISTAN!!!’ I would never go boo anyone. I don’t go to hate, only to cheer!”

Back when his first cheating scandal broke, Kim, 39, was one of the first to condemn her sister’s ex. “Like, I don’t even know how to describe it besides, it’s just so f–ked up,” she told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show in April 2018. A source told In Touch the feeling was mutual. “Tristan’s pissed at Kim and really wishes she and the rest of their family will mind their own business and keep his name out of their mouths,” an insider admitted. “He feels Kim’s making it worse for Khloé and True by going on Ellen and who knows who else and talking about their problems.”

If Tristan is back on good terms with even Kim, that only makes his comments to Khloé seem even more flirty. Check out the gallery below to see what the NBA star has had to say.
