Published: | Updated:
It seems as if Tristan Thompson is working his way back into the Kardashian circle of trust.
Kim Kardashian on Tuesday took to Twitter to deny she booed the 28-year-old athlete the night before as he took the floor at Staples Center with his Cleveland Cavaliers in a 128-99 drubbing from the hometown Los Angeles Lakers.
‘I was there to support him! And was cheering screaming LETS GO TRISTAN!!!!!’ the reality TV star, 39, said in response to a Harper’s Bazaar piece implicating her of booing the basketball pro – who’s father to her one-year-old niece, True – as he shot free throws.

Kim, who was briefly wed to NBA alum Kris Humphries in 2011, said that she’s not one to heckle or go negative while attending any sporting event.
‘I would never go boo anyone. I don’t go to hate, only to cheer!’ said Kim.
Kim’s presence at courtside alongside husband Kanye West didn’t seem to hamper Thompson’s performance, as he went on to score 17 points and grab 10 rebounds in the loss to the LeBron James-led Lakers.
While in Southern California for the series of contests, Tristan reportedly attended West’s Sunday service in Los Angeles.

Last February, he reportedly hooked up with Kylie Jenner confidante Jordyn Woods, who denied having sex with him; in April of 2018, he was linked to another woman at the time Khloe was ready to deliver their child.
