‘So Lucky To Have Been Chosen As Your Son’: Tristan Thompson’s Mom Dies Of Heart Attack
Just days after ringing in the New Year, Tristan Thompson’s mom died suddenly of a heart attack at her home in Toronto.
According to People, Andrea Thompson’s “unexpected” death occurred on Thursday (Dec. 5). In a show of support for Tristan, 31, a native of Canada, co-parent Khloé Kardashian joined him on a flight home. The two share 4-year-old daughter, True and in August, they welcomed their baby boy to the world.
TMZ first reported that Andrea went into cardiac arrest and was rushed to a local hospital. Medical staff were unsuccessful in attempting to resuscitate her.
Throughout his Instagram page, Thompson has numerous posts about his mother. During Mother’s Day 2020, Thompson shared a post, thanking her for all the sacrifices she made for him and his brothers. “I love you and I’m soo lucky to have been chosen as your son. Not all superheros wear capes,” he wrote.
Thompson’s last NBA stint was played during the 2021-2022 season for the Chicago Bulls. In 2016, he was a key component in helping the Cleveland Cavaliers win a NBA championship with LeBron James, as they defeated the Golden State Warriors.
