According to the Daily Mail and Cosmopolitan, Thompson forked over the money for the luxury whip in order to try to get back in good with the scorned Kardashian. She has indicated that she is still on the mend after being humiliated from repeatedly being cheating on by the Cleveland Cavaliers center and by her previous man, ex-husband Lamar Odom.
According to the entertainment publication, Thompson got the inspiration from rapper Drake, whom Thompson got buddied up with while he played with LeBron James in Cleveland.
“Tristan is good pals with Drake and has been using him as a sounding board as he plots his return to the Kardashian fold,” the source said according to The Daily Mail. “Drake told him to pull out all the stops if he wanted to win Khloé back.”
Reportedly, Kardashian’s heart has softened as she invited Thompson over for Taco Tuesdays at her mansion in the L.A. area, which will give him the opportunity to spend time with their 17-month-old daughter True.
The Daily Mail added that just because Thompson got an invite and bought Kardashian a smooth ride, it doesn’t automatically translate into a renewed romance.
“An invite to a casual dinner might not sound like a reasonable trade-off for a sleek supercar. But after what Tristan did, he can’t expect Khloe to roll out the red carpet for him,” the source added.
