Tristan Thompson’s brother denies slamming Khloé Kardashian over mom’s death
Tristan Thompson’s brother, Dishawn Thompson, is retracting his previous statement where he seemed to accuse Khloé Kardashian and her family of exploiting his mother’s death for their reality show. Dishawn clarified on his Instagram Stories that his comment was not directed towards Khloé or her family, stating that Khloé has always been supportive of him and his brothers. He emphasized that he would never bash a woman, especially on social media, and asked people not to speak on his behalf.
Earlier, Dishawn had posted on his Instagram Story that someone was using his mother’s death as a storyline. In a subsequent post, he expressed skepticism about what people see or hear on social media, suggesting that most of it is false. Dishawn reiterated that his comments were not aimed at Khloé or her family.
Although Dishawn did not mention anyone by name, his remarks coincided with the episode of “The Kardashians” where Khloé and her family discussed the tragic death of Tristan’s mother. Khloé’s sister, Kim Kardashian, revealed that Tristan’s world was shaken when he learned about his mother’s heart attack, and they immediately flew to Toronto to support him.
Khloé also shared how she assisted Tristan after his mother’s passing, acting as a support system by taking care of practical matters like cleaning Andrea’s apartment, managing her phone and credit cards, and handling her life insurance policy. Additionally, she arranged for Tristan’s younger brother, Amari, who has epilepsy, to live with him in Los Angeles.
Tristan, as the oldest sibling, became Amari’s legal guardian after their mother’s death. Khloé expressed gratitude for being able to support someone who currently lacks a support system. She has been by Tristan’s side since his mother’s passing, even allowing him and Amari to live with her while Tristan’s home was undergoing renovations.
Andrea passed away unexpectedly in January after suffering cardiac arrest at her Toronto home. Khloé and Tristan immediately flew to Canada to be with his family. Khloé recently celebrated Amari’s 17th birthday with a party at her Los Angeles home and shared pictures on social media, expressing her love and appreciation for him.
So far, Khloé and her family have not addressed Dishawn’s original post or subsequent comments.
Tristan Thompson’s brother is backtracking after he seemingly accused Khloé Kardashian and her family of using his mom Andrea Thompson’s death as a “storyline” for their reality show.
“Y’all chill out that wasn’t towards Khloe or her family,” Dishawn Thompson, 28, wrote via his Instagram Stories Friday. “Khloe been a real one toward myself and my bros from day1.”
“i wouldn’t try to bash a female down ever and especially on social media,” he added. “Please don’t speak for me.”
Dishawn’s denial comes one day after he originally posted on his Instagram Story that someone was using “death for a storyline 🤔.”
In a second post, the aspiring rapper wrote, “Don’t believe everything you see or hear on social media 95% is a lie.”
While Dishawn never mentioned anyone by name, his remarks came hours after Kardashian, 39, and her family talked about Andrea’s tragic death on Thursday’s episode of “The Kardashians.”
“Tristan found out that his mom had had a heart attack. It shook up his entire world,” Khloé’s sister Kim Kardashian, 42, explained in the Hulu show.
“So of course we drop everything and we go to Toronto. It’s not even a question, I’ll be there.”
Khloé — who shares daughter True, 5, and son Tatum, 1, with Tristan — also revealed how she assisted the NBA star, 32, after his mom’s passing.
The Good American founder explained that she stepped in as a “support system” for her ex by cleaning Andrea’s apartment, turning off her phone and credit cards and figuring out her life insurance policy.
Khloé said that she also arranged to bring the pro baller’s youngest brother, Amari, who suffers from epilepsy, to Los Angeles so that he could live with his big brother.
Tristan, who is the oldest of four, was named Amari’s legal guardian after Andrea’s death.

“I’m grateful that I’m strong enough and brave enough to be a support system for someone else that has no other support system right now,” Khloé said in the episode.
In January, Andrea died after going into cardiac arrest in her Toronto home and TheFantasyTimes was told that her death was “unexpected.”
Following her passing, Khloé and her on-again, off-again ex Tristan took a private jet to Canada to be with his family.
Since then, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum has continued to rally around the athlete and his family, even allowing Tristan and Amari to move in with her while his home was being renovated.
On Thursday, Khloé shared pictures of Amari celebrating his 17th birthday at a party she threw in her Los Angeles home.
“Someone is 17 today!!!! Happy birthday sweet sweet Amari!!!” she captioned the post. “We are all so blessed to have been touched by an angel such as you 💙 you are truly one of Gods greatest treasures 💙.”
