James Harden was going to get a big shoe deal regardless, but it surely didn’t hurt he was dating a Kardashian at the time when Kanye was heavily invested in the company.
Maybe that is Thompson’s end game.
Sources tell Radar that NBA star Tristan Thompson is reaping the rewards of dating youngest Kardashian sister Khloe, with one insider claiming, “He’s with her for her social media presence.”
“Since he’s been with Khloe, his following has doubled, which means his endorsement deals will as well,” the source continued. “It’s no coincidence that he upgraded from dating an Instagram model [Jordy Craig] to a reality TV star with more than 60 million followers.”
According to Blind Gossip, Thompson is also hoping that his relationship with the KUWTK star will boost his endorsement deals.
“Khloé is the one putting all the effort into the relationship and her friends fear Tristan will end up hurting her,” an insider told Life & Style of the situation. “It’s basketball season and it doesn’t seem like he’s making much effort to see Khloé at all.”
The reality star, who has been dating the Cleveland Cavalier for the past three months, already moved into his home part-time despite him having a child with his ex, Craig, in December.
“Khloé’s friends have warned her that Tristan and Jordan could get back together and at the very least, co-parenting between them could be very dramatic and complicated.”
While I wish them the best, but nothing suggest this won’t end like the other Khloe relationships at some point and she will be on to the next.
