Better Than Me: Tristan Thompson’s Ex Girlfriend Had Every Right To Be Petty But She Took The High Road

April 11, 2018  |  

Yesterday, NBA player and father of Khloe Kardashian’s unborn child, Tristan Thompson’s infidelity was revealed. And honestly, revealed is the best word for it. First, there was a flirty interaction in the club. It looked like a little too much attention but I wasn’t sure if he had actually kissed the woman like people claimed he did. Then there was another roll out. in this video, he was definitely kissing another woman…a couple of them actually.

Surveillance Footage Shows Tristan Thompson Cheating On Khloe Kardashian With Two Women – blogged by @MsJennyb (Video @tmz_tv) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TristanThompson reportedly scored a two for one back in October while his reality star girlfriend was sitting at home three months pregnant. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident occurred at a hookah lounge outside Washington, D.C., the night before the Cleveland Cavaliers played the Washington Wizards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In surveillance video obtained by TMZ, Thompson is spotted with not one, not two, but three women at a hookah lounge. The baller is seen tonguing down one of the women, just before the other plants his face in her boobs and grabs his eggplant. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The release of the footage comes just hours after Daily Mail reported the baller was seen making out with a mystery woman in New York over the weekend. In fact, according to TMZ, Thompson brought the woman to his hotel room later that night.

And then, in the third video, he was seen walking into a hotel room with another woman, possibly one of the women from the first two videos.

TSR STAFF: Myeisha E.! @myeisha.essex ________________________________________ #Roommates, there's more!!!! ________________________________________ So earlier today, video of Tristan at a NYC club leaked and you can see a girl all up in his grill. Well, #Roomies THE TEA RUNNETH OVER!!! We have exclusive footage of the two of them leaving the DAY party (where you saw her all up in his face) together and arriving back to his team HOTEL around 8:30pm on April 7th. He got there wearing a black Supreme jacket, and FOUR hours later, the pair reemerge from the hotel with Tristan changing his outfit for the next event. _______________________________________ Then they hopped into the same SUV and headed to Soho House (for the night party) in the Meatpacking district, which is a member's only club with strict cellphone policy. Then at 5am, they returned to his hotel together AGAIN and he even held the door open for her like a gentleman. _______________________________________ The next day (April 8th), she was seen again leaving the hotel (while Tristan stayed behind in the hotel) around 8pm still wearing her exact same outfit as the night before. Sis even had an overnight bag in hand! 📷: Splash News #TSRExclusive

The news wasn’t all that exciting because I don’t think anyone was surprised to watch Thompson, who left his last girlfriend, Jordan Craig, during her pregnancy to be with Kardashian, to remain faithful when presented with another opportunity. Not to mention, he’s a 27-year-old basketball player. If anything, it was proof of the old adage, “The way you got him is the way you’ll lose him.”

And while it sucks that Khloe has been confronted with this truth when she’s so close to giving birth, the woman I was really interested in hearing from, was the mother of Thompson’s first child, a 16-month-old son named Prince Oliver.

Jordan Craig would have been well within her rights to post a meme of Kermit sipping tea, a gif of a woman laughing hysterically or a trite quote about Karma. Instead, she shared this message in her Instagram story.

The whole thing had me wondering what therapist did Craig speak to, what church does she attend, who are her parents? Homegirl is mature and far more evolved than me. The very best I would have been able to do in this situation was stay off of social media because if I did post or share anything, I can’t say I wouldn’t want to gloat just a little bit. If not for me, for my child.

Then again, in the year and change she’s spent raising their son, maybe Jordan has truly gotten over her ex and realizes that his decision to leave her wasn’t as much of a loss as it may have seemed to be.

How do you think you would respond in this type of situation, where the new woman, the woman who ignored your relationship and feelings, was experiencing exactly what you had?
