Tristan frequently gushed about Andrea on his Instagram, as evidenced by a Mother's Day post in which he shared a video ...
...of Andrea with the caption, "One day isn't enough to praise and lift you high Everyday is your day Thank ...
...you for all the sacrifices you made for me and my brothers I love you and I'm soo lucky to have been chosen as your son Not all superheroes wear capes" In the video, Andrea reciprocates the adoration and expresses.
Tragically, Tristan's last Instagram post of Andrea was in August 2019. In the adorable photo, Andrea was holding Tristan's daughter True, whom he shares with his ex-girlfriend Khloe Kardashian.
Khloe and Tristan were seen together arriving at the Canadian airport earlier on Friday. The ex-couple also share a son born in August via surrogate. Khloe boarded Tristan's private jet earlier on Friday.
TMZ sources claim that Khloe went with Tristan to "comfort" him during his loss.
The Good American designer was also said to be close to Andrea, and like the rest of the Kardashian family, she would always stand by a loved one during their most trying hour.
Fans are aware that Tristan and Khloe's relationship has been on-again, off-again since their initial meeting in 2016.
It's incredibly encouraging and heartwarming to see them come together at this time, especially after a few scandals and Tristan having another child with a different woman just before they welcomed their son.
HollywoodLife will keep you informed of any new information regarding Tristan's mother's passing, including any reports of additional KarJenner family members forming a support network for the basketball player.
