Folks, we really didn’t think it was possible, but it looks as though Tristan Thompson may have just sunk to a new low.
By now you’ve probably heard that Tristan was caught cheating on Khloe Kardashian twice, and both instances took place under appalling circumstances.
The first time, Khloe was pregnant with Tristan’s child.
The second time — after she had naively taken him back — Tristan cheated with Jordyn Woods, the best friend of Khloe’s younger sister, Kylie Jenner.
How, you may be asking yourself, is it possible for Tristan to mess with Khloe’s life any more than he already has?
Why, by being a deadbeat dad, of course!
To be clear, no one is accusing Tristan of stiffing Khloe on child support.
Though his team often looked more like a bunch of D-league rejects this season, the Cavs are still an NBA franchise, and Tristan makes a good salary playing for them.
But it seems that Tristan is dropping the ball in a different way by failing to be present for the major milestones in baby True’s life.
True will celebrate her first birthday this week, and it seems Tristan is planning to be MIA for the occasion.
His basketball season is over, so Tristan can’t blame his absence on work.
Instead, he’s chalking it up — and we can’t believe we’re about to say this — to his intense fear of his baby mama’s family.
“Tristan does not want to set foot near Khloe’s family because he knows how much they all despise him right now,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
“Khloe doesn’t even want Tristan to see True, regardless of what she says."
So we guess the silver lining is that Khloe gets to enjoy the day with her daughter, and her douchey baby daddy won’t be there to spoil the memory.
Still, it’s absurd that a grown-ass man is missing his daughter’s first birthday party because he’s worried about getting dirty looks from Kris Jenner.
“Tristan does not want to be there for the party because he does not want to get reamed all over again," says the source.
"He’s going to do what he always does, which is try to make up for missing out by buying True expensive gifts.”
And sadly, he’s probably establishing the pattern that he and True will follow for the remainder of their relationship as father and daughter.
He’ll do something selfish or negligent; she’ll get angry; he’ll buy her off with expensive gifts, and the cycle will continue.
We’re sure it’s a story that sounds all too familiar to many who grew up with douche bag dads.
