It’s only been a hot minute since Tristan Thompson was caught cheating on his baby mama Khloé Kardashian with Jordyn Woods, her younger sister’s (former?) best friend, but he’s already got someone new. According to Radar Online, he’s been spotted twice in one week with model Karizma Ramirez, including when they went out for a sushi date on Tuesday, March 5. But who is she exactly? Here’s everything we know so far about Karizma.
She’s dated celebrities before.
According to Page Six, Karizma was getting cozy with Chris Brown back in 2013. The model was allegedly working as a waitress at a club he visited when they met. Though he said in an April 2013 interview that he was still dating Rihanna at the time, a source told the outlet that Chris and Karizma “hit it off and headed out together” and even “spent Easter Sunday together” afterward. On top of that, she was also at his birthday party that year and seen exiting his tour bus. Maybe she’s got a thing for men who’ve gone through seriously public relationship scandals?
She’s dated athletes before, too.
Tristan isn’t her first time hanging out with an NBA player. Radar notes that she was also connected to Shane Larkin during the summer of 2015. In the past, he’d played for the Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks, but in July 2015, he joined the Brooklyn Nets. According to Daily Mail, the two took sweet selfies together that seemed to confirm their relationship. Now that she’s with Tristan, she’s meeting even more NBA players — like his Cleveland Cavaliers teammate, Jordan Clarkson, who joined them for a double date.
She’s closer to Tristan’s age.
Part of the problem in Khloé and Tristan’s relationship seemed to be that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was ready to settle down and start a family while Tristan clearly still enjoys partying. He may be a father of two, but at 27 years old, he’s not ready to slow down. Khloé had a good few years on him at 34, but at 28 years old, Karizma may be more suited to living the kind of life that Tristan wants to.
She worked at Hooters.
In addition to waitressing at the club where she met the “Kiss Kiss” singer, she put her model skills to use when she was a Hooters girl. She even competed in their annual Hooters pageant where Hooters girls compete to win the ultimate crown. You can see footage online from when she donned her swimsuit to strut her stuff during the 2010 pageant. Can we just say that her body is banging? And this girl is still just as hot as ever.
She’s an east coast gal.
During her time in the Hooters pageant, the then-19-year-old was listed as being from Wayne, New Jersey, where RestaurantNews.com said she’d worked as a Hooters girl for one year. During the time that she was meeting up with Chris Brown and Shane Larkin, she was living in New York, and it seems like that may still be her home base. For now, though, the star is keeping her life low-key, despite the celebrity sightings. With her Instagram locked down on private, we’ve still got a lot left to learn.
