Tristan Thompson Reveals Khloe Kardashian Dig That Got a Fan Ejected From NBA Game
Tristan Thompson suffered a different kind of personal foul at one of his NBA games.
During the May 19 episode of Hulu, The Kardashians, the basketball pro confirmed that he had removed a fan from the November 28 game between his then-team, the Sacramento Kings, and the Memphis Grizzlies for making derogatory remarks about Khloe Kardashian.
While reports initially claimed the fan made comments about the Kardashian-Jenners in general, Tristan told Khloe, "It was aimed at you."
After Khloe pressed for more details, the NBA star revealed the heckler commented on Khloe's past. Unhappy with that vague answer, the Good American founder asked, "I like what?"
When Tristan apparently hesitated to answer, Khloe assured him she didn't care, adding, "I'm not offended."
Tristan claimed the fan accused Khloe of talking to "different basketball players," adding that Tristan was "just the next one."
Though Khloe laughed at the drama, she noted, "Okay, he called me a wh--e and said I dated basketball players. I had six friends, three of whom were in the NBA. Thanks. How is that my problem?"
A history of Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's relationship
How did Tristan react? He initially told the fan: "Listen man. Enjoy playing with your girl because you come here to see me.”
As things escalated, Tristan, who shares 4-year-old daughter True Thompson with Khloe, said he threw the rowdy fan away, saying, "You're not going to keep talking about my family like that."
Khloe agreed with Tristan's decision, noting in a confessional, "It's how everyone should be. You are only meant to protect your family.”

Khloe and Tristan - who have broken up and reconciled on previous occasions - aren't quite on the same page these days. Notably, the two are no longer a couple, but continue to be co-parents of True.
In January, Tristan confirmed he had fathered a child with Maralee Nichols and apologized to Khloe on Instagram for "the heartache and humiliation" he had caused.
"You don't deserve the way I've treated you all these years," he added. "My actions certainly didn't line up with the way I see you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
New episodes of The Kardashians air Thursdays on Hulu.
