Khloé Kardashian has reportedly rushed to ex Tristan Thompson’s side to support him after his mother’s sudden death.
The pair landed in Canada via private jet earlier today to be with Thompson’s family after his mother, Andrea Thompson, suffered a heart attack at her Toronto home and was rushed to a local hospital. Doctors were unable to resuscitate her and she died overnight.
She leaves behind Thompson and his three younger brothers, Amari, Dishawn, and Daniel.
