Tristan Thompson appears to have fully re-entered the dating scene amid the Kardashian drama

For a time, it seemed like Tristan Thompson was determined to win back his ex-girlfriend Khloé Kardashian after they broke up over his various cheating scandals. In February, a source told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “Tristan obviously wants Khloé back, but Khloé’s mindset is ‘once a player, always a player’. She sees that very clearly now, and it would take a miracle for them to get back together at this point.” Kardashian and Thompson had reconciled in 2021, but news that Thompson had fathered a child with fitness instructor Maralee Nichols — while he and Kardashian were still together — enough for the reality star to finally pull the plug. Today, the two are little more than amicable co-parents. The Good American founder also walks the path by refusing to badmouth her ex to do, as she explained on The Drew Barrymore Show.

Since June, Kardashian has reportedly been dating a private equity investor she met through big sister Kim Kardashian. Not surprisingly, the news didn’t agree with Thompson. “Obviously, Tristan isn’t thrilled that Khloé is back together, but he knows he has nothing to say on the matter,” a source told Hollywood Life. “He also knew that day would come eventually, but he’s trying not to think about it too much. Tristan still has feelings for Khloé.” Still, maybe it was the catalyst the NBA player needed to see his ex get back on the dating scene to do the same.

Tristan Thompson celebrates at a Las Vegas nightclub

Tristan Thompson certainly had a fun 4th of July weekend! Over the holidays, TMZ reported that the Chicago Bulls player was spotted partying with a crowd of women at Marquee Nightclub in Las Vegas. The Daily Mail corroborated this report, adding that Thompson seemed particularly invested in one woman. According to TMZE, he and this mystery woman “were very touchy” throughout the night, with Thompson reportedly “holding her” and even “whispering in her ear.” The group left the club around 3am, but TMZ was unclear on the identities of everyone, which didn’t include those “in his immediate circle.”

Thompson may have frequented nightclubs in the past, but the good news is he can do whatever he wants this time; since his breakup with Khloé Kardashian, he’s just a single man doing this thing. Still, going to the club could be Thompson’s first choice. In 2019, InTouch Weekly reported that he looked worse after a night of partying at an LA nightclub, fresh from a recent breakup with Kardashian.

Thompson doesn’t appear to be looking for anything serious, either. In January, he was seen snuggling up to a mystery woman in a TikTok video uploaded via Stylecaster by user Tricia Caracoza. The clip came just two weeks after Thompson publicly apologized to Kardashian on Instagram for his infidelity. It looks like fans will be waiting a while for the NBA player’s next long-term relationship.
