TRISTAN Thompson has been spotted getting close with an unknown female companion in new photos.
The suggestive snaps came amid rumors the NBA baller was rebounding with his ex and mother-of-two Khloe Kardashian.
Tristan, 32, was spotted shopping at Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center in Calabasas, California on Friday.
In the photos obtained by the U.S. Sun, he emerged from the store in a casual plush zip-up, some jewelry – and another more interesting accessory.
A mystery woman walked alongside the athlete and escorted him to his car.
As they said their goodbyes, taking a while, Tristan put an arm around her for a hug.
Tristan’s unknown galpal was wearing large shades and leaned into the basketball player when they embraced for some light PDA in the parking lot.
BLING ON THE RUMORS
The same day, Khloe, 38, shared a promotional photo shot for her brand Good American on her Instagram Stories that had fans thinking she and Tristan were on again.
In the photo, she posed in a tight pair of denim jeans and a black corset-style tube top.
She had on a pair of lace gloves that reached above her elbow and wore a massive diamond ring – which she’s worn in the past – on her left ring finger.

Khloe has not said anything about the ring buzz – but fans were convinced it was a sign on Reddit.
“Even if it’s an old photo, it was definitely a choice to post this photo. With their photoshop skills, this could have been easily removed. I definitely believe they’re back together,” one wrote.
A source recently told Entertainment Tonight: “Tristan will always be in Khloe’s life, but she isn’t in love with him.”
Tristian seems to have a different goal for his relationship with Khloe, that said.
A source told Us Weekly last week: “Tristan is always trying to get Khloe back, he still loves her and wants to make it work between them.
“They’re friends and great co-parents, but he wants more.”
KHLO MANY SIGNS…
Since the beginning of this year, there have been several other signs of a rekindled romance between the two.
It started in January of this year when Tristan’s mother suddenly passed. Andrea Thompson suffered a heart attack at her home in Toronto, Canada, and was rushed to the hospital, where she tragically died.
Tristan flew to Toronto on a private jet as soon as he could, and Khloe joined him. After her death, the mother of two posted a lengthy Instagram tribute to Andrea.
After this, Tristan moved within walking distance of Khloe’s home.
The U.S. Sun exclusively revealed that a trust associated with Tristan signed a deed on a six-bedroom home that’s only two miles away from Khloe and Kris Jenner’s side-by-side mansions.
A trust associated with Tristan signed a deed for the massive 10,584-square-foot property on December 16, 2022.
Most recently, for Tristan’s 32nd birthday on March 14, Khloe shared a series of photos of her newborn, as well as a lengthy Instagram caption to the father of her two children.
Tristan was also recently spotted with Khloe’s sister Kim Kardashian outside of her daughter North’s basketball game.
Khloe and Tristan first heated up in 2016, and the pair put on a racy display on social media that Halloween as they partied together.
They officially confirmed their relationship shortly after Khloe’s divorce from her ex-husband, Lamar Odom, was finalized at the end of 2016.
A year later, she confirmed her first pregnancy with Tristan.
On April 12, 2018, she gave birth to daughter True – with Tristan by her side.
Amid rumors and confirmations of infidelity including a makeout sesh with Jordyn Woods, the two had an on-and-off relationship for years.
But the biggest bombshell dropped in June 2021 when personal trainer Maralee Nichols claimed she was pregnant with Tristan’s baby and revealed she would be suing him for child support.
The fitness model welcomed the baby boy named Theo in December, and after months of speculation and denials, Tristan’s paternity test proved he was the father of the child, and he apologized to Khloe.
Then, in July 2022, Khloe and Tristan welcomed their second child together by surrogate – his fourth with three women total.
After the shocking scandal, the reality star seemed to sever ties for good, despite him clearly remaining on the periphery of the famous family.
