Tristan Thompson has sparked fury after threatening Lamar Odom – and mocking his near death experience – in an argument over Khloe Kardashian.
Basketball star Tristan, 30, has had a very on-off relationship with 37-year-old Khloe since 2016 and they even welcomed a daughter named True in April 2018 .
Before Khloe embarked on her high profile romance with the Canadian sportsman, however, she was married to NBA legend Lamar, 41, from 2009 to 2016 .
Lamar featured alongside Khloe in many episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and they even enjoyed their own spin-off show, titled Khloe & Lamar, in 2011 .
Lamar’s personal life made headlines in 2015 when he was found unconscious in a brothel in Las Vegas following the use of drugs – with the star being put on life support after he slipped into a coma.
The near death experience made headlines around the world, and Khloe – who had split from the sportsman – stood by his side as he recovered.
On Friday, Khloe shared a photograph of herself on Instagram taking an outdoor shower.
Fans of the reality star were excited when they noticed that Lamar had left a flirty comment on her posting, writing: “Hottie” alongside flame, heart eyed, and heart emojis.
Excitable fans suggested the exchange could hint at a reunion between the pair – as reports have suggested Khloe’s romance with Tristan is “off” again amid rumours he has cheated on her once again.
But excitement soon turned to rage as fans noticed Tristan had left a threatening comment on the same post – in which he mocked Lamar’s past medical problems.
The troubling message read: “@lamarodom God brought you back the first time. Play if you want, different results” alongside shrugging emojis.
TMZ were quick to draw a link between what Tristan wrote and Lamar’s past troubles, reporting: “The comment is obviously referring to Lamar’s infamous 2015 drug overdose at a Nevada brothel, which nearly killed the former NBA stud.”
Fans were quick to slam Tristan for the comment, with one, defending Lamar, writing: “At least he made it to the altar fool! Mind your trifling business & leave Lammy alone, we stan Lam.”
Another blasted Tristan, writing: “go get a life your an embarrassment to her and leave Lamar alone we all rather she and Lamar over you and day.”
A further fan slapped down Tristan writing: “lol you acting real tough for someone who can’t stay faithful.”
While another speculated on Khloe’s tendency to become involved with troubled men, writing: “She’s a beautiful woman not sure why she plays around with these clowns she’s worth so much more than the way these tow have treated her!”
