It seemed (keyword: seemed) that Tristan had put his cheating ways behind him after rekindling his relationship with Khloé. But now, more rumors have come to light and a cease-and-desist for defamation is in effect. Read on to get the tea.
Sydney of The Blackout Girls claims that she had an affair with Tristan Thompson.
Men in the entertainment world already know that there are plenty of jersey chasers and groupies waiting to capitalize on an opportunity. However, that's never stopped celebs from stepping out on their relationships.
Sydney Chase, Instagram model and member of The Blackout Girls, decided to spill tea on her dealings with Tristan. On the April 22, 2021, episode of the No Jumper podcast, Sydney and the rest of her crew were openly discussing their rendezvous with different famous names.
One of the women, Hayden, asked Sydney, “How was Tristan Thompson’s d--k?”
Sydney responded, “It was a peek-a-boo d--k, but baby, it was good.”
She then went on to talk about hanging out with the NBA star on multiple occasions. Plus, Sydney made it a point to say that she was not aware that he was involved with Khloé.
“I did not know he was in a relationship,” Sydney said. “He told me he was not in a relationship anymore.”
Making matters worse, one of the ladies asked Sydney when the hookup occurred and she said around “January or February 2021.” If memory serves us correctly, Tristan and Khloé had been booed up for quite some time by then.
But then, Sydney took to TikTok to clear things up. In her video, she claims she got the dates wrong in the podcast appearance. "In this interview, I was asked a question by friend Hayden, in which I answered honestly," Sydney says.
She continues, "[Tristan and I] did have past relations. I then found out that he was in a relationship, and I ended things. In the interview, things got misconstrued while we were drinking. We first met — November. November 11 to be exact. And that's when everything started."
Sydney then claims that the last time she and Tristan talked was the day after his daughter's birthday party. Fans will recall that True was born in April.
Tristan has sent Sydney a cease-and-desist letter in regards to her allegations.
While it seemed that Khloé and Tristan were remaining mum about Sydney's account of him cheating with her, the NBA star has decided to take some action.
According to Page Six, Tristan sent Sydney a cease-and-desist letter that threatens to sue her for defamation as a way to stop her from discussing their previous rendezvous.
In fact, he also served the No Jumper podcast host Adam John Grandmaison with a cease-and-desist as well.
"Yeah, we got a cease-and-desist and deleted it,” Adam tells the outlet. “Honestly, I wouldn’t have posted it in the first place if I knew it was going to mess up a relationship.”
Fans on social media now believe that Tristan is taking even further action after Khloé reached out to Sydney herself on Instagram.
In a slew of screenshots Sydney shared, the reality star asked her if there conversation can remain behind closed doors. But obviously, Sydney wasn't having it.
Making matters worse, Sydney has no intention of complying with the cease-and-desist. The Shade Room reports that Sydney wants to share her truth with the world.
This cease-and-desist for defamation will only work in Sydney's favor if she's telling the truth. And knowing Tristan's cheating history and the women he has stepped out on, we can bet dollars to donuts that Sydney is more than likely telling the truth.
And as you can imagine, social media has been relentless with their opinions about the whole situation. Fans are convinced that Tristan is taking legal action to try and cover up what he actually did.
One of the main theories for him trying to cover up his tracks has to do with his career. Many think that because he wasn't really in the spotlight as an NBA player until getting into a relationship with Khloé, he's not trying to lose his place in her life.
It’s true that Khloé has the right to date whoever she wants, but this whole debacle with Tristan has made fans question the type of example she is setting for her daughter, True. After all, no one would want their daughter to date someone who consistently disrespects her.
Will Khloé ride it out with Tristan amid the cheating rumors? Only time will tell.
