‘Wow!’ Tristan Thompson is awestruck by ex Khloe Kardashian and her ‘abs of steel’ as he praises her in supportive comment


Despite not being romantically involved, Tristan Thompson couldn’t help but publicly marvel at Khloe Kardashian’s figure. 

After the 37-year-old Good American founder posted her Health Magazine cover to her Instagram feed the NBA player gushed about her and her ‘abs of steel’ in a comment. 

The pair have had a very on-off relationship amid numerous cheating allegations but most recently split in early June, before it was reported last month that Tristan was still trying to ‘get her back.’

In Khloe’s fitness cover she donned a grey sports bra and tiny spandex bike shorts that showed off her washboard abs, captioning the image in excerpt: ‘I worked so hard in the gym for this and I celebrated with pizza (my weakness) right afterwards.’ 

The Sacramento Kings player could not help but sing her praises while adoringly calling her by her nickname ‘Koko.’  

‘Wow!! You are so motivational Koko! So proud of your hard work and dedication to your healthcare and fitness. Abs of steel!! BRB I need to do some sit ups,’ he wrote with two red heart emojis.

In her Health spread she candidly spoke about her previously ‘unhealthy’ relationship with food, body image issues, and called the gym a ‘release’ that she first found when she was in the process of her divorce from Lamar Odom. 

Supportive: 'Wow!! You are so motivational Koko! So proud of your hard work and dedication to your healthcare and fitness. Abs of steel!! BRB I need to do some sit ups,' he wrote

Khloe and Tristan’s on-off relationship had been plagued by an onslaught of cheating allegations over the course of the last five years. 

Page Six was the first to report that they had split again in June, after she seemed to give their relationship another shot shortly before his birthday in March. 

The two however sparked rekindling rumors after they were seen looking cozy at Lebron James’ wife Savannah’s birthday party, before it was revealed they arrived and left separately.  

In September a source told ET that Tristan was still trying to win her back.

‘Tristan is still very flirty with Khloe and tries to get her back, but Khloe’s focus is 100 percent on True right now and showing True that they can co-parent in a healthy way, while also ensuring that she always feels very loved and supported,’ the insider said at the time. 

It was added that as the pair continue to ‘do a great job at co-parenting together,’ she actively continues to include Tristan in all of True’s activities.

‘Khloe is making sure to include Tristan in dinners, outings, play dates, etcetera with True so they can have time together as a family.’

This week she was also seen flashing a diamond ring on that finger, and even tweeted about giving True, three, a sibling: ‘I want her to have a sibling. If it’s God’s plan.’
