TRISTAN Thompson was seen getting close to an unknown female companion in new photos.
It comes amid rumors that the NBA player is back with his ex and mother-of-two Khloe Kardashian.
Tristan, 32, was spotted shopping at Universal Appliances and Kitchen Center in Calabasas, California on Friday.
In photos obtained by US Sun, she left the store wearing a casual frilly zip-up, some jewelry and more interesting accessories.
The mysterious woman walked with the athlete and accompanied him to his car.
As they said their goodbyes, Tristan pulled her into his arms for a long hug.

Tristan wore oversized shades in an unidentified hoodie and leaned over the basketball player as they embraced for some light PDA in the parking lot.
BLING to the rumours
That same day, Khloe, 38, shared a promotional photo of herself for her Good American brand on her Instagram Stories, prompting fans to speculate that she and Tristan are back together.
In the photo, she posed in skinny jeans and a black corset tube top.
She wore a pair of lace gloves that reached above the elbow, and on her left ring finger was a large diamond ring that she had worn in the past.

Khloe hasn’t said anything about the ring noise – but fans were convinced it was a sign on Reddit.
“Posting this photo was definitely an option, even if it’s an old photo. With their photoshop skills, it could have easily been removed. I definitely believe they’re back together,” she wrote.
A source recently told Entertainment Tonight, “Tristan will always be in Khloe’s life, but she’s not in love with him.”
Tristian has a different purpose for his relationship with Khloe, he said.
A source told Us Weekly last week: “Tristan is always trying to get Khloe back, he still loves her and wants to make things work.
“They are friends and great parents, but she wants more.”
There have been several other signs of a rekindled romance between the two since earlier this year.
It started after Tristan’s mother died suddenly in January of this year. Andrea Thompson suffered a heart attack at her home in Toronto, Canada and was rushed to hospital where she tragically died.
Tristan flew to Toronto on his private jet as soon as he could and Khloe joined him. After her death, the mother of two wrote a long tribute to Andrea on Instagram.
After that, Tristan moved into Khloe’s house within walking distance.
USA Sun exclusively revealed that a trust linked to Tristan has signed the deed on the six-bedroom house, just two miles from Khloé and Kris Jenner’s side-by-side mansions.
A Tristan-related trust signed a deed on Dec. 16, 2022, for the massive 10,584-square-foot property.
Recently, for Tristan’s 32nd birthday on March 14, Khloe shared a series of photos of her newborn, as well as a lengthy Instagram post to the father of her two children.
Tristan was also spotted with Khloé’s sister Kim Kardashian outside of daughter North’s basketball game recently.
Khloe and Tristan first got hot in 2016, and the pair were spotted out and about on social media on Halloween as they partied together.
They officially confirmed their relationship shortly after Khloe’s divorce from ex-husband Lamar Odom was finalized in late 2016.
A year later, she confirmed her first pregnancy with Tristan.
On April 12, 2018, she and Tristan gave birth to a daughter, True.
He had an on-and-off relationship for two years, amid rumors and confirmations of infidelity, including a makeout sesh with Jordyn Woods.
But the biggest blow came in June 2021 when personal trainer Maralee Nichols claimed she was pregnant with Tristan’s baby and announced she would be suing him for child support.
The fitness model welcomed baby Theo in December and after months of speculation and denials, Tristan’s paternity test proved he was the child’s father and he apologized to Khloe.
Then, in July 2022, Khloe and Tristan welcomed their second child via surrogate — his fourth with three women in total.
After the shock scandal, the reality star seemed to have ended the relationship for good, despite remaining on the sidelines of the famous family.
