Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson appeared to be getting pretty close to a mystery brunette at a club in New York on Saturday night, according to the Daily Mail. It is believed that Thompson was in the Big Apple ahead of Monday night’s NBA game against the Knicks.
Thompson was spotted at PH-D Lounge with some friends fairly early on in the evening. One onlooker took a video of the basketball star, who is about to become a father for the second time. His girlfriend, Khloe Kardashian, is expecting her first child this month.
In said video, Thompson can be seen wearing a white hoodie under a denim jacket. He has the white hood up over his head as he talks to a woman who’s since been identified as Lani Blair. At one point, it appears as though Thompson locks lips with Blair, though that’s not completely clear based on the angle of the video.
Below is the onlooker’s account. This unidentified person supplied the aforementioned video to the Daily Mail. That footage is now all over social media.
“I was there and he was on the table right next to us with a group of friends and some girl who he was obviously making out with all night. They were holding each other and it was so obvious. They were there when I got there and they were part of a big group of friends. They were talking and being around each other all night. He was texting and talking on the phone and she was obviously looking over his shoulder. Everybody knew who he was. We talked about it and everybody watched them make out several times. I have obviously seen him before and people around me were like, ‘That’s Tristan Thompson. I have seen him on TV,'” the source told the outlet.
Neither Thompson nor Kardashian have commented on the video.
According to TMZ, Thompson had a woman with him when he went back to his hotel that night. It’s unclear if the woman in the photos obtained by TMZ was the same woman that he was chatting with in the club.
“TMZ obtained this video of the Cavaliers star, rocking a white hoodie, with the woman strolling behind him into the Four Seasons early Sunday, around 5 AM. The unidentified woman was also seen hanging all over Tristan at an NYC nightclub earlier in the evening. Tristan was staying at the hotel with the rest of his team while they were in town for a game,” TMZ reported.
Thompson and Kardashian have been dating since 2016. Their baby girl is expected to arrive this month. Thompson also has a son named Prince Oliver with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig. Thompson allegedly cheated on Craig with Kardashian while Craig was pregnant with their child. Many people have been bringing this up on social media since seeing the aforementioned video of Thompson with another woman.
