Basketball star and Khloe Kardashian’s ex boyfriend Tristan Thompson has spoken out about his mother’s death.
Tristan’s mum, Andrea, passed away suddenly last month, leaving both him and Khloe – who shares two children with Tristan – heartbroken.
Shortly after her passing, 38 year old Khloe penned a heartfelt tribute to Andrea where she candidly shared that she was struggling to accept the death of her children’s grandma.
Now Tristan, 31, who welcomed his second child with reality TV star Khloe in August, has paid his respects to his late mother as he spoke out for the first time on social media since her untimely death.
Alongside a series of photographs with his mum, the Indiana Pacers star wrote: “Dearest mommy in heaven, It has been one month since you’ve been gone. I’m in disbelief. Im in the deepest part of sorrow & grief.
“My soul is empty as I come to terms that my biggest supporter/superhero is gone. I cannot thank you enough for always being a woman of faith, being one of Gods warriors, fighting back with whatever the world threw our way. You constantly protected us through prayer. My hero you fought all the battles you needed to and it was time for you to go home.”
Tristan continued: “Man, What I wouldn’t give to hear ur voice. ‘Who God has blessed, no man can curse my son’. Mommy I know you’re watching down on me; I wanna say thank you for picking me as your son. You dedicated ur life to ur boys & the church. Prayed & fasted for family/friends because you know how evil this world is.
“Mommy, all the sacrifices you did for ur sons will never go unnoticed or without appreciation. You were an amazing mommy, role model, best friend & the strongest woman I know.
“I know you’re here as I write this letter. All I can say is, Im sorry mommy for the wrong decisions Ive made in my life. Im sorry for the embarrassment &pain. You raised me better than what I was able to show you.”
The basketball star went on to say that “sorry is not enough”, adding that “actions speak louder than words” as he promised to become the “amazing son you raised”, labelling Andrea as his motivation to do so.
Tristan, who is the eldest of four boys, also promised to take care of his youngest brother, Amari, who has epilepsy.
“Mommy, Amari is going to be taken care of. I’ll protect him, love him &do anything in the world to make sure he’s ok,” he penned.
“I know they say time heals all but I don’t think this pain will ever go away. We had so many memories &more I wanted to share with you. We will still share them but now from heaven. As the tears roll down my face, all I can ask is please continue to be my light.
“mommy, you’re my guardian angel and I’ll forever praise you. I love you mommy. I can’t wait to see you and when I do I’m going to run and give you the biggest hug and kiss. I promise to make you proud.”
Khloe echoed similar sentiments to Tristan about Amari in her tribute as she said that “we will all look after him, help him and protect him”.
