Tristan Thompson was reportedly spotted getting cozy with a woman in New York this weekend - and it wasn't his pregnant girlfriend Khloe Kardashian. As the reality star prepares to give birth to their daughter at their home in Cleveland, the Daily Mail has released video of the 27-year-old Cavaliers basketball player at PH-D Lounge in Manhattan canoodling with a woman who the publication has now identified as model Lani Blair. The video shows a man in a white hoodie and dark jacket chatting closely to a young woman before what appears to be the two leaning in for a kiss.
According to reports, Lani is a bartender at a strip club and a model with an Instagram following of more than 350,000. After she was identified, the brunette quickly changed her profile on the social media platform to private.
Tristan, who was reportedly trying to keep a low profile partying with ten friends, was on the East Coast with his teammates to face off against the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday, Apr. 6, before going head-to-head with the New York Knicks on Monday, Apr. 9. While Tristan has been traveling because of work, 33-year-old Khloe has been nesting at home awaiting the arrival of their bundle of joy, which could be any day now. She has stayed mum on the controversy, but one day before the photos and videos were released the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star shared a picture from her maternity shoot showing herself and Tristan kissing, which she sweetly captioned: “We are ready whenever you are little mama.”
Khloe, who has been dating the basketball star since 2016, also took to her Snapchat the same evening to have some fun with filters and to show off her baby bump. The Good American designer sported a Tommy Hilfiger bra as she posed for the camera in a variety of filters. Khloe also took to her personal app to share that she isn’t afraid to give birth. “I don’t feel like I need to prepare for my birth by freaking myself out,” she wrote.
“I’ve seen over eight births live and in person. Women were made to do this! It’s a natural experience," she added. “I read my apps every day and I ask my doctor if I have any questions, so I’m honestly not that afraid. Of course I’m a little nervous to go into labor, but I’m trying not to overthink something that literally happens all the time.”
Khloe confirmed her first pregnancy last December, something she'd been hoping for all her life. "My greatest dream realized," she wrote alongside a bump picture on Instagram. "We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient." Tristan is already a father to 16-month-old son Prince Oliver, whom he had with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
