Tristan Thompson has applied to take over the care of his 17-year-old brother, Amari Thompson.
The 32-year-old basketball player asked the courts to officially recognize his guardianship, nine months after the death of her mother Andrea. TMZ reported.
Tristan’s brother is unable to care for himself due to multiple medical diagnoses, including epilepsy.
Amari will also receive $103,475 due to Andrea’s death, and Tristan will be able to protect his assets as guardian, the outlet says.
Her father, Trevor, is not in her life, so Tristan is the only person in the family who can take care of her.
The latest: Tristan Thompson has applied to take over the care of his 17-year-old brother Amari Thompson. Nine months after the death of her mother Andrea, the basketball player asked the courts to officially recognize his guardianship, TMZ reported
Tragic: The brothers sadly lost their mother Andrea, who died of a heart attack at the beginning of January at the age of just 53
Her mother Andrea died of a heart attack at the beginning of January at the age of just 53.
In the Season 3 finale of The Kardashians, it was revealed that Tristan’s ex Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner all flew to Toronto with Tristan on Kim’s private jet and that Tristan and Amari moved in with Khloe, but she insisted this is not the case, they are romantically together again.
Andrea was Amari’s sole caregiver, and when she died in January, Armani was placed in Tristan’s care, meaning he had to be moved to Los Angeles, where Tristan lives.
But in an unusual twist of fate, both Tristan and Amari actually moved in with Khloe after a mishap occurred at Tristan’s house, which was being renovated.
Khloe revealed in a confessional in the finale, “Tristan has a house that he’s building and renovating.” He was able to live there during the renovations, but we had some crazy weather for California, like extreme rain, and Tristan’s roof fell over his house and caused flooding. So Tristan and Amari are staying at my house right now until his house gets repaired.’
Khloe confirms in confession: “Tristan and I are not back together.” I know it’s hard for everyone to believe, but I love, love, love Andrea and I love Tristan, I love Amari, and that’s what Family does.”
She added: “Tristan is the father of my children, you know.” I lost my father, and my father was like a parent from a fairy tale, but I still can’t imagine the loss of my mother, and I know “How close Tristan and his mother are, and it’s just heartbreaking to be like that. And then you have another person’s responsibility on top of that, it’s a lot.”
Khloe added that Amari has been “having more seizures than normal because he’s just…” while Tristan is finishing up and “adjusting.”
Khloe adds in the confessional, “I’m grateful that I’m strong and brave enough to be a support system for someone else who doesn’t have another support system right now.” You don’t have to treat me right for me to treat you right. It’s not the way I was raised.’
Sweet message: Khloe Kardashian posted a birthday message for Tristan Thompson’s brother Amari. The NBA star and his teenage sibling moved in with Khloe after their mother’s death at age 53
Tristan says: “Thank you very much, especially from me and my family. I don’t know what I would do without you right now, like come to my mother’s house and pack and go through photos and clean up her apartment and get Amari for the funeral. You are so busy, you have so much to do, honestly, I don’t know, I just hope that God continues to bless you with everything that you want and that’s it “My mother would wish for you, so im Seriously, thank you,” as Kris begins wiping away tears.
Kris adds, “You know, your mom had a lot going on and the opportunity to be Amari’s sole caregiver really touched me, and it just broke my heart because Amari doesn’t know what’s going on and stuff move on.” Suddenly you’re deprived of the caretaker you’ve had your whole life. I just feel so lost for him because he’s probably just wondering where his mom went and it breaks my heart.”
Kris adds in the confessional, “Tristan definitely made some mistakes and he definitely messed up, but at the end of the day he will always be a part of our family and we will be there for him no matter what.”
Tristan adds, “But as a son, it makes me proud knowing, like my mother, her time on Earth, she helped a lot of people and is remembered for a lot of great things, you know.”

When you have another person’s responsibility on top of that, it’s a lot.
