Tristan Thompson is US citizen
Tristan Thompson is now a citizen of the United States.
The basketball star says he is “truly living the American Dream” after being sworn in as an American citizen, just a few days after joining the Boston Celtics for the new season.
The sportsman – who has daughter True with Khloe Kardashian – said: “I came to the U.S. on a student visa and have always had big dreams. I’m now truly living the American dream.”
Tristan was previously a Canadian citizen, having come to the United States in 2009 to study at the University of Texas. He stayed in education for a year before joining the NBA.
It comes after his ex Khloe praised Tristan for his efforts to change his ways after he cheated on her as they discussed the chances of them rekindling their romance.
She said: “We’ve done this rodeo before where your actions didn’t go with your words and for almost a year now, you’ve been a different person. It frustrates me cause I’m like, ‘Why now? Why are you, like, the man I dreamed of currently? Why couldn’t you be that when we were together? One of my fears is you’re acting like this until you get what you want, and then if you do, you’re gonna turn into like the old Tristan again.’ …”Do I love you? A million per cent. Am I in love with you currently? No, but would it be great if I could have this fairytale ending? Yes. But just because you have a family with someone also doesn’t mean you have to stay with someone if it’s not the best fit.
“I don’t know what the future holds. All I do know is I am actively trying to take down little bricks. I try to be more trusting. I try. It’s a slow process, but that’s just how it has to be for me, but I do appreciate the effort you make, and the new you. It’s night and day – who you are.”
