Karizma Ramirez is the woman who has stepped out with Tristan Thompson multiple times in recent weeks, in the wake of the Thompson-Jordyn Woods scandal that rocked the Kardashian clan.
Following several days of mystery around who Thompson was seen out and about with, it has been confirmed that this Ramirez was previously linked to Chris Brown and NBA player Shane Larkin.
TMZ was the first to publish photos showing Thompson with Ramirez. The gossip site reported that the pair had met up twice in one week, once for dinner at Carbone in New York City and once for dinner at Nobu. On another occasion, Thompson could be seen bringing two Starbucks coffees back to his hotel room. Thompson was in town with the Cleveland Cavaliers to play the Brooklyn Nets.

That article says Ramirez and Brown went to a club called Finale in New York City over Easter weekend. The source said to the publication, “They hit it off and headed out together. They also spent Easter Sunday together.”

During an episode of Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith, Woods confirmed that she kissed Thompson, but did nothing else with him.
Woods said, “On the way out, he did kiss me…No passion, no nothing, on the way out. He just kissed me. Like a kiss on the lips, no tongue kiss, no making out, nothing.”
5. Kardashian Has Not Acknowledged the Latest Rumors About Thompson & Ramirez
Kardashian has not acknowledged the latest rumors about Thompson, though she has implied on Twitter recently that she is moving on. In a March 2 tweet, Kardashian wrote, “I have to move on with my life & count my blessings, my family, my health, & my beautiful baby True.”
At another point, Kardashian tweeted, “This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have. Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me, wasn’t such a shock as the first time.”
