Why Kanye West and Tristan Thompson’s Friendship Makes Perfect Sense
So, Kanye seemed fated to secure the same forever-family status enjoyed by Scott and Tristan, despite their numerous foibles. “Like one of my kids,” matriarch Kris Jenner has called Scott, while Tristan scored “likes” from Kris and her boyfriend Corey Gamble when he called Khloe “an amazing partner, mommy and best friend but also being the kindest, caring and most loving human being I’ve ever met” on her June 27 birthday, post-split. (Corey also showed up for a Kings-Lakers game at Crypto.com Arena in January when Tristan was still playing for Sacramento.)
And back in, or at least adjacent to, the fold is likely where Kanye—as Kim’s co-parent and father to four of Kris’ 11 grandchildren—will end up, his latest spurt of publicly aired grievances notwithstanding.
“They’re all trying to keep the peace with Kanye, but everyone is upset for Kim,” a Kardashian source tells E! News of where the family stands with the artist, whose career is the subject of the new Netflix docuseries Jeen-yus. “It’s been very stressful.”
