Khloé Kardashian is mourning the loss of Andrea Thompson. Sad news came last month that Tristan Thompson’s mother died suddenly after a heart attack on December 5th. Koko was immediately by his side as they headed to Toronto to be with his family.
At the time, sources said she was very close to his mother, and on Monday night, the 38-year-old put into words just how strong their bond was. “I have been avoiding this…. Avoiding accepting this is real,” she began with a gallery of photos with Andrea.
Koko and Tristan have been together on and off since 2016 and share True Thompson and a little boy whose name has not been revealed. “I have so much to say but nothing at all…. I have so many emotions and still, I feel numb. Life can be brutally unfair at times and This has been one of the toughest times in so many of our lives,” she wrote.
Despite the drama between Koko and Tristan, it’s clear Andrea held a special place in her heart as the grandma of her children, and a mother-in-law type figure. “I know I will hear your sweet voice and infectious laugh again. I know I’ll get to feel that embrace of yours.”
While Koko is optimistic that Andrea is in a better place, she acknowledged the pain Tristan and his siblings are feeling without their mom. “I know you never wanted to leave your boys. They are your entire world. They will learn to live with the hole in their hearts because they are warriors just like their warrior mommy,” she wrote.
In the gallery of photos, Koko included four photos with Tristan’s little brother Amari, who suffers from epilepsy. Andrea took care of him in the Toronto home up until she died. Tristan praised his mother in 2022, telling NBC Sports his motivation was Amari and his family. “My Mom has had to sacrifice each day as well. She’s had to watch a child for basically 24-hour care. That takes her away from her own life and freedom,” he said.
Regarding Amari, Khloé made a promise to Andrea, “Just know, I promise you, Amari will be perfectly ok. We will all look after him, help him and protect him.”
Rest in peace.
