Report: LeBron James, Tristan Thompson have ‘spat’ over Khloe Kardashian
Kloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are the latest iteration of the so-called celebrity supercouple, but LeBron James is concerned his Cleveland Cavaliers teammate’s reality show girlfriend could become a distraction.
Hollywood Life is reporting that James and Thompson had a “spat” ahead of the Cavaliers’ season-opening game against the New York Knicks earlier this week. Given Kardashian’s proclivity to incite drama and distraction, James allegedly warned Thompson not to invite her to games. But that evidently didn’t stop Kardashian from showing up at Quicken Loans Arena, and she made it clear she was around on social media.

“Tristan isn’t taking any crap from his teammates anymore. As far as he’s concerned, Khloe’s coming to every damn game she chooses,” said the purported insider. “Tristan told LeBron straight up before last night’s game that Khloe was coming and that was that.”
Thompson’s desire to have his new special lady in attendance stems from how he sees her as a “good luck charm” and supposedly informed James that if the Cavaliers lost, he would consider not having Kardashian attend games.
The Cavaliers of course manhandled the Knicks to the tune of a 117-88 blowout.
“They obviously won, and after the game, Tristan had an I-told-you-so moment with LeBron,” the insider reports. All James could apparently do was smile.
All the talk about Kardashian and Thompson and James being unhappy over her presence is of course all speculation and hearsay spawned by an article from a gossip site. How much of it is true is subject to debate. But either way, it wouldn’t be surprising at all if James wasn’t pleased with Kardashian hopping on the Cavaliers bandwagon courtesy of Thompson. There’s no way James will allow outside influences and drama derail his pursuit of consecutive NBA titles.
