Kris Jenner mourns the death of Tristan Thompson’s mother.
In an Instagram post shared by Kardashian-Jenner’s mother on Saturday, Jenner paid tribute to Andrea Thompson, who died Thursday after suffering a fatal heart attack. According to People magazine, Andrea was at her home in Toronto, Canada when she died unexpectedly. TMZ Sports first reported the death on Friday, according to the publication.
“I am so devastated by the sudden passing of Tristan’s mum, Andrea. My thoughts, prayers and all my love are with Tristan, Amari, Dishawn and Daniel,” Jenner wrote, referring to Andrea’s children.
“You were the most amazing, devoted, devoted and selfless mother and such a loving, kind and wonderful grandmother. What a blessing you have been to your family!!! I will miss you Andrea.” “I will miss your bright spirit and amazing light. Thank you for always praying for us, lifting us up and encouraging us along the way. Rest in peace, beautiful angel.”
Along with the caption, Jenner shared some photos of Andrea in recent years. The photos featured her, Andrea, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan at his 2018 birthday party. There was also a picture of Andrea on the carousel with Khloe and her granddaughter True Thompson, 4.
Tristan and Khloe have been romantically linked since 2016 and are currently broken up amid the Tristan cheating scandals. The two have two children, True, 4, and a baby boy, whom they welcomed in July through a surrogate.
Neither Tristan nor Khloe have yet made a public statement regarding Andrea’s death. According to unnamed sources quoted by Entertainment Tonight, Khloe plans to attend Andrea’s private funeral alongside Kris and Kim Kardashian.
Representatives for Thompson and the Kardashian-Jenner family did not immediately respond to an Insider’s request for comment.
Tristan has spoken out in recent years about his mother and her role as the caretaker of his youngest brother Amari, who suffers from epilepsy. In a 2016 interview with his former NBA team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tristan discussed his family dynamics and how he cares for his mother.
“Even though I don’t live at home and am four hours away from home, I talk to my mum every day – ask how the kids are, ask how they’re doing too,” Thompson explained in an interview. “Everyone knows that my mum is very dedicated to taking care of her sons – especially Amari. But at the same time, you have to make sure she’s okay.”
