Crowd Taunts Tristan Thompson With ‘Khloé’ Chant During NBA Playoff Game (VIDEO)
Cavaliers fans aren't going to let Tristan Thompson forget his cheating scandal any time soon.
During the Cavs' first playoff game against the the Raptors on Tuesday night (May 1), patrons in the stadium began chanting "Khloé" as Thompson shot free throws, assumedly as a taunting reference to the allegations that he cheated on girlfriend Khloé Kardashian throughout her pregnancy.
Thompson, a center/forward for the team, appeared unfazed, and the Cavs ultimately won 113-112. He was also previously booed at a game in April.
"Feels good to be back in the 6," he later captioned a photo on Instagram, referring to his hometown of Toronto, where the game took place.
The incident comes several weeks after reports of Thompson's infidelity surfaced. Both TMZ and The Shade Room shared footage of the NBA player seemingly stepping out on Kardashian: First at a hookah lounge in November, where he appeared to kiss and grope two women, and then at a daytime club in April, where he got close to an Instagram model and was later spotted entering his hotel with her around 5 a.m.
The news broke mere days before Kardashian and Thompson welcomed their daughter, True. Neither have publicly commented on the allegations, but Kardashian's sister, Kim, called the ordeal "so f--ked up" during a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
"We really were rooting for Khloé — and we still are," she explained. "She's so strong, and she's doing the best that she can. It's a really sad situation all over."
According to People, Kardashian is staying at Thompson's home in Cleveland "indefinitely" while she figures out her next steps.
