Following just a year playing for the school, he dropped out and was drafted into the NBA.
Who are Tristan Thompson’s parents?
Tristan’s parents are Andrea and Trevor Thompson, who are both of Jamaican descent.
He revealed that he speaks to his mother almost every day.
“Even though I don’t live at home and I’m four hours away from home, I talk to my mom every day – ask how the kids are doing, ask how she’s doing, too,” he explained when he was playing for the Cavaliers.
“Everyone knows that my mom, she’s very dedicated in taking care of her sons – especially Amari. But at the same time, you need to make sure that she’s ok,” Tristan said referencing his three younger brothers, one of who suffers seizures and epilepsy on a daily basis.
“It’s asking a lot for one parent to do, so I always try to make sure that she’s doing well, too. Whether she’s getting a massage or just get out of the house and have a babysitter watch for a couple hours, that’s crucial.”
His mother says that she works as a school bus driver and her husband works as a truck driver.
Although Thompson is close to his mother, he has had some rocky times with his dad Trevor Thompson, who he claims abandoned his family for Khloe Kardashian.
“Tristan act like he does not have a father…. what gos around comes right back around…. watch and see he’s a want to be a man….” his father wrote on Instagram.
“LOL Tristan only listen to his self and mother what a joke they don’t know any better…. lol sad sad sad shame on them time will tell watch and see.”
