After suffering a devastating loss, Tristan Thompson is in sorrow. A source close to the 31-year-old NBA player tells ET that his mother, Andrea Thompson, has passed away. ET has requested an interview with Tristan’s representative.
A source close to Tristan adds that Khloe Kardashian, his ex-girlfriend, and he recently visited Tristan’s mother’s grave in Toronto. True, age 4, and a son, who was born through a surrogate in August, are the children of the now-divorced couple. Additionally, Tristan is a father to Prince, age 6, and Theo, age 1.
The reality star’s mother, Kris Jenner, and sister, Kim Kardashian, will reportedly attend Andrea’s burial alongside Khloe, according to the source. “A private funeral for his mother is scheduled that Khloe, Kim, and Kris are expected to attend,” the source says.
Another source tells ET, “Khloe was very close to Tristan’s mother, and as with any partner, friend, etcetera, the family will be first to support them, especially in this challenging time.” According to the website TMZ, Andrea died unexpectedly after a heart attack.
In 1991, Andrea and Trevor Thompson had a son, Tristan. Deshawn, Daniel, and Amari are Tristan’s younger brothers. Tristan told the NBA in an interview in 2016 that he calls his mum every day.
“Everyone knows that my mom, she’s very dedicated in taking care of her sons — especially Amari,” Tristan said of his youngest brother, who suffers from epilepsy. “But at the same time, you need to make sure that she’s OK. It’s asking a lot for one parent to do, so I always try to make sure that she’s doing well, too. Whether she’s getting a massage or just get out of the house and have a babysitter watch for a couple hours, that’s crucial.”

Andrea wrote an essay for the Toronto Star on her son’s journey to the NBA after he was selected fourth overall in the 2011 NBA draft. “Trevor is a truck driver. I drive a school bus. We work hard. In life you have to work hard to receive your blessing, everybody knows that. I never had it easy as a child,” she wrote. “I didn’t have to tell Tristan anything to empower him. Tristan saw us always working hard, and he wanted to get ahead.” Andrea shared some wisdom words she’d given her son over the years: “Keep going. Don’t look back. Keep fighting.”
