Kris Jenner mourns Tristan Thompson’s mother.
In an Instagram post shared by the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch on Saturday, Jenner paid tribute to Andrea Thompson, who died Thursday after suffering a fatal heart attack. According to People Magazine, Andrea was at her home in Toronto, Canada when she died unexpectedly. TMZ Sports was the first to report the death, according to the publication on Friday.
“I am so heartbroken at the sudden death of Tristan’s mother Andrea. My thoughts, prayers and all my love are with Tristan, Amari, Dishawn and Daniel,” Jenner wrote, referring to Andrea’s children.
“You were the most amazing, caring, devoted and selfless mother and such a loving, kind and fabulous grandmother. What a blessing you have been to your family!!! I will miss you Andrea,” she added. “I will miss your bright spirit and amazing light. Thank you for always praying for us and lifting us and encouraging us on our way. Rest in peace beautiful angel.”
Along with her caption, Jenner has shared several photos of Andrea over the past few years. The pictures included one of herself, Andrea, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan at his birthday party in 2018. The carousel also had a photo of Andrea with Khloe and her granddaughter True Thompson, 4.
Tristan and Khloe have been romantically linked since 2016 and are currently breaking up amid Tristan’s cheating scandals. The two share two children, True, 4, and a baby boy, whom they welcomed via surrogate in July.
Neither Tristan nor Khloe have commented publicly on Andrea’s death. According to unnamed sources quoted by Entertainment Tonight, Khloe plans to attend a private funeral honoring Andrea along with Kris and Kim Kardashian.
Representatives for Thompson and the Kardashian-Jenner family did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
Tristan has spoken about his mother and her role as caregiver to his youngest brother Amari, who suffers from epilepsy, in recent years. In a 2016 interview with his former NBA team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tristan spoke about his family dynamics and how he takes care of his mother.
“Even though I don’t live at home and I’m four hours away from home, I talk to my mother every day – ask how the kids are, ask how she is too,” Thompson said in the interview. “Everyone knows that my mother takes great care of her sons – especially Amari. But at the same time, you have to make sure she’s okay.”
