Tristan “Chapter Three” Thompson wrote about “responsibility” while partying around Europe before the birth of his fourth child.
The NBA star, 31, took to Instagram Story on Sunday to list the “three rules” that will help one realize “independence is the way forward.”
According to his post, the rules are “Nothing is promised to you”, “No one owes you anything” and “You have all responsibility in your life.”
Thompson’s bizarre post came just a day after his ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, encouraged her Instagram followers to “grow up” rather than be “hostage” to their past.
A TikToker user in Maryland said in a viral video, reposted by the Good American founder, 38, via Instagram Saturday.
“And to be honest, it really helps them validate how they want to feel about themselves. Either way, can I give you some advice? Grow. You grow at such a rate so fast that your past becomes irrelevant. Anyone? Choosing to see you from your ancient domain, he becomes equally irrelevant.”
Thompson has spent the past two weeks in Europe despite waiting for the arrival of his second child – a son – with Kardashian.
During his travels, the soon-to-be father of four is seen holding the hand of a mysterious brunette after partying at a Greek nightclub, and in St Tropez alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.
Kardashian, who has not made any public comments about her ex-husband’s travels, appeared to condone his behavior when she “liked” a post that read, “I don’t know why it would be crazy for Tristan to be with another girl as long as he’s a good father to his child.”
The basketball player earned his not-so-funny nickname “the third trimester” after the first cheating scandal was exposed before the Kardashians—his then-girlfriend—goed into labor with their 4-year-old daughter, True.
The Kardashian star athlete pulled it back several times before calling it quits in December 2021 after learning he had secretly fathered another woman’s baby.
However, by that time, their surrogate was already pregnant.
The Chicago Bulls forward also shares 5-year-old son Prince with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig, who was pregnant when he began his romance with Kardashian.
Additionally, Thompson shares 7-month-old son Theo with model Maralie Nichols.
