Andrea Thompson, the mother of Khloe Kardashian’s “baby daddy” Tristan Thompson, passed away on 5 January. TMZ reported that Andrea suffered a heart attack at her home and was rushed to a local hospital where medics tried to resuscitate her to no avail.

A month after Andrea’s death, Tristan has broke his silence. He apologised to his mom for the embarrassment and assured her he will take care of his brother Amari — in a lengthy Instagram post.

“Dearest mommy in heaven. It has been one month since you’ve been gone. I’m in disbelief. I’m in the deepest part of sorrow & grief
My soul is empty as I come to terms that my biggest supporter/superhero is gone. I cannot thank you enough for always being a woman of faith, being one of Gods warriors, fighting back with whatever the world threw our way,” he wrote.

“Im sorry for the embarrassment &pain. You raised me better than what I was able to show you. But I have also learned sorry is not enough. Actions speak louder than words. So I wont just say sorry,” he continued.

This comea after Khloé paidtribute to Andrea — her children’s grandmother. Many have trolled Khloé over her relationship with her “baby daddy” Tristan. This was because of his several cheating scandals and impregnanting another woman. 

However, that has not strained her relationship with Tristan’s mom Andrea. Andrea is the grandmother of Khloé’s two children – True (4) and a son the pair welcomed via surrogate in July 2022.

“I have been avoiding this…. Avoiding accepting this is real. I have so much to say but nothing at all…. I have so many emotions and still I feel numb. Life can be brutally unfair at times and This has been one of the toughest times in so many of our lives,” she wrote. 

“But at the same time, I feel blessed that I am lucky to have had someone that makes saying goodbye so incredibly difficult. So difficult that I’m choosing not to say goodbye for good because that is something I cannot fathom. Goodbyes for good are something I don’t believe in,” she continued.

Khloe went on to say that Amari will be fine and she will help look after him.

“Just know, I promise you, Amari will be perfectly ok. We will all look after him, help him and protect him. Your boys will be ok because they have their guardian Angel by their side,” she added.
