Tristan Thompson Posts Ripped Shirtless Selfie After Khloe Reveals Her Body Transformation.
Two can play that game. After Khloe Kardashian showed off her muscles after months in the gym, Tristian Thompson declared it was ‘grind time’ with a shirtless mirror picture.
Khloe Kardashian isn’t the only one who can snap a fitness selfie. Tristan Thompson got in on the shirtless selfie fun on Wednesday (Feb. 2), immediately before his workout. Tristan, 30, grabbed out his phone in what appeared to be a gym shower and shot a photo of his already toned chest and stomach. “Grind time,” the Sacramento Kings player captioned the Instagram Story.
Tristan’s thirst trap occurred a day after Khloe, 37, offered her 219 million followers an update on her progress at the gym. “About 3 months apart,” she captioned the set of photographs she posted on Feb. 1. Both photographs revealed the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum’s back, but the “After” was considerably more toned and fit than the “Before.”
Khloe complimented Coach Joe (aka Joël Bouraïma) for the help in “sculpting my back and arms.” The fitness trainer also highlighted Khloe’s progress on their Instagram, providing a photo of the Revenge Body host’s back and arm. “[Khloe], you can be proud of this one!!” Joe captioned the topless photo of Khloe. “I LOVE IT.”
Whether or not this leads to an arms (and back) race between Khloe and Tristan remains to be seen. However, the two presumably won’t be working out together anytime soon. Tristan is still grappling with the ramifications of fathering a kid with Maralee Nicols.
After denying that the boy was his, Tristan confirmed the fatherhood on Jan. 3. “I take full responsibility for my actions,” he stated, adding how he “apologize(s) to everyone I’ve harmed or disappointed during this journey both publicly and privately.” Tristan also identified Khloe, stating she didn’t “deserve this” controversy. “You don’t deserve the heartache and disgrace I have brought you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you through the years. … I am so profoundly sorry.”
Tristan is well aware that Khloe is “done with him for now,” an insider told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. Tristan knows he “disappointed her and her family, and he’s not sure if there’s anything left to be done at this point.”
Tristan will likely “lay low for a bit” while sorting out his personal and professional life. On top of the drama with Khloe and raising their daughter, True Thompson, Tristan will be without a team at the end of the 2022 season. His deal with the Kings is up this year, and he reportedly told Maraliee Nicols he was planning to retire after this season.
