Besides the pandemic, which upended the lives of almost everyone everywhere, it’s been an especially tumultuous year for NBA star Tristan Thompson. The 6’9” power forward appears to be reunited with his on-again-off-again girlfriend and baby momma, ubiquitous reality TV personality Khloé Kardashian, after they broke up when it came to light he’d cheated with Jordyn Woods, the now former best friend of Kardashian’s younger half-sister Kylie Jenner; after almost a decade with the Cleveland Cavaliers, during which he won an NBA Championship in 2016, he signed on to dribble and shoot for the Boston Celtics on a two-year contract at close to $10 million a year; and just this week he filed a $100,000 libel suit against a woman who has spent the last year making claims he’s the father of her child. (A paternity test has already shown he’s not the father.)
Thompson hasn’t had such an easy go of it in the real estate arena either. Amid all the baby and relationship drama that’s played out on TMZ, he’s been forced to chop the asking price of his Encino, Calif., mansion to $7.9 million, a whopping $600,000 less than the $8.5 million he asked when it first come up for sale almost a year ago but still a substantial profit on the $6.5 million he paid for the suburban mansion just two years ago.
Listings held by Tomer Fridman at Compass show the nearly 9,900-square-foot suburban mansion was built in the once fashionable and nowadays omnipresent “modern farmhouse” style, and sits behind gates on a pancake-flat .43-acre parcel. In addition to the glamorously decked out main house with five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, a spacious poolside guesthouse adds another two bedrooms and a bathroom.
