- Kim Kardashian wished Tristan Thompson a happy birthday on Instagram yesterday.
- No other member of the Kardashian family, including Khloé, published Tristan’s day.
Idk if you’ve already marked this in your iCal, but in case you don’t: yesterday was Tristan Thompson’s birthday and the NBA star is now 29 years old. And if you are not a big fan of basketball and more than one Keeping up with the Kardashians fans, you probably know Tristan as Khloé Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend who cheated on her several times, even when she was very pregnant with their first child together.
And the turbulent relationship between Khloé and Tristan is why it’s cute, uh, remarkable that Kim Kardashian decided to send Instagram love for Instagram yesterday to Tristan. While the rest of the Kardashian family remained mothers for the Tristan party, Kim went ahead and wrote: “Happy birthday @ realtristan13 !!!! Today I cheer for you! I can’t wait to celebrate soon!” and I also shared a photo of them together:
And like anyone who wanted a happy birthday from Kim on Instagram, Tristan republished his photos and commented: “Thank you so much Keek! Get up early come ????????????” and “???? we have to start using the photo booths on the sides ????.”
While it certainly seems like a * choice * that Kim has publicly sent love to Tristan for her birthday, it’s no surprise that Kim and Tristan are friendly: she had previously invited Tristan to dinner, so they seem to get along. And FWIW, Khloé still seems to be focusing on her co-parenting relationship with Tristan, and last month she said she was a “great person”, so it’s possible she doesn’t mind Kim being super nice to Tristan on Insta!
