Kris Jenner mourns the death of Tristan Thompson’s mother.
In an Instagram post shared by the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch on Saturday, Jenner paid tribute to Andrea Thompson, who died of a fatal heart attack on Thursday. According to People Magazine, Andrea was at home in Toronto, Canada when she died unexpectedly. TMZ Sports was first to report the death on Friday, according to the publication.
“I am so heartbroken by the sudden passing of Tristan’s mother, Andrea. My thoughts, prayers and all my love go out to Tristan, Amari, Disshawn and Daniel,” Jenner wrote, referring to Andrea’s children.
“You were the most amazing, dedicated, devoted and selfless mom and such a loving, kind and fabulous grandmother. What a blessing you were to your family!!! I will miss you Andrea,” she added. “I will miss your brilliant spirit and incredible light. Thank you for always praying for us, lifting us up and encouraging us along the way. Rest in peace, beautiful angel.”
Along with her caption, Jenner has shared several photographs of Andrea over the past few years. The images included one of herself, Andrea, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan at her 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 separated amid Tristan’s cheating scandals. The two share two children, True, 4, and a baby boy whom they welcomed in July via surrogate.
Neither Tristan nor Khloe have yet made a public statement regarding Andrea’s death. According to unnamed sources cited by Entertainment Tonight, Khloe plans to attend a private funeral held in Andrea’s honor with Kris and Kim Kardashian.
Representatives for Thompson and the Kardashian-Jenner family did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
Tristan spoke about his mother in recent years and her role as caregiver to his younger brother Amari, who has epilepsy. In a 2016 interview with his former NBA team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tristan opened up about his family dynamic 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 mom every day — ask how the kids are doing, ask how she’s doing too,” Thompson explained in the interview. . “Everyone knows my mum, she’s very dedicated to taking care of her sons – especially Amari. But at the same time, you have to make sure she’s okay.”
