Tristan, whose ex is Kris’ daughter Khloe Kardashian, had a terrifying ordeal after his mother Andrea was rushed to hospital on Thursday (January 5) in Toronto.
Sources later confirmed to DailyMail.com that the NBA player’s mother was unable to be resuscitated.
Sharing her devastation at the heart-breaking news, Kris penned an emotional tribute to social media alongside pictures of Andrea with the Kardashian family.
Several of them featured Khloe and Tristan’s daughter True, 4, while the former couple also share a young son.
Kris, 67, wrote: ‘I am so heartbroken by the sudden passing of Tristan’s mom, Andrea.
‘My thoughts, prayers and all of my love are with Tristan, Amari, Dishawn and Daniel.
‘You were the most amazing, dedicated, devoted, and selfless mom and such a loving, kind, and fabulous grandmother.
‘What a blessing you were to your family!!! I will miss you Andrea. I will miss your bright spirit and amazing light.
‘Thank you for always praying for us and lifting us up and encouraging us along the way. Rest in peace beautiful angel.’
Friends and fans alike paid their condolences in the comments, with Faye Resnick writing: ‘Terrible news, Andrea was so young and vibrant and such a great mom,’ while Khadijah Haqq McCray wrote: ‘We love you Andrea and will miss you dearly.’
It’s believed that Khloe, 38, was also ‘very close’ to Tristan’s mother, and wants to ensure she supports him through the devastating time.
Sources told TMZ that the Good American designer wants to ‘comfort him’ as he grieves, and is keen to be there for a ‘loved one in their most difficult time of need.’
The former couple are no longer together and have not been romantically involved for some time now, due to cheating scandals of the past.
However, they co-parent their kids, and still spend holidays and important milestones together.
As well as Tristan, Andrea – who worked as a school bus driver – is survived by sons Dishawn, Daniel, and Amari and her husband Trevor Thompson.
