Swish! Kim Kardashian and eldest daughter North West had the time of their lives at the Los Angeles Lakers game on Friday, May 12.
The Skims mogul, 42, uploaded a series of silly selfies of the mother-daughter duo to her Instagram Story on Friday, showing off the pair’s courtside seats. Kardashian rocked several diamond chokers and “No Joke, We’re Back” shirt with longtime Lakers fan Jack Nicholson’s face on it. The 9-year-old — whom the reality TV star coparents with ex-husband Kanye West — brought the edge with a yellow and black leather jacket and a Lakers jersey. North completed her look with a pair of high ponytails.
Kardashian — who also shares Saint, 7, Chicago, 5, and Psalm, 4, with the Yeezy designer, 45 — brought her eldest to watch the hometown Lakers take on the Golden State Warriors at the Crypto.com Arena. The twosome, who were joined by the Kardashians star’s sister Kendall Jenner and new beau Bad Bunnywere all smiles as the Lakers won Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals.
During the exciting match, Kardashian and North made sure to support Tristan Thompsonwho is the father of ex Khloé Kardashian’s two children. Kim and North sweetly held up a homemade purple-and-gold sign with Thompson’s name in bubble letters.
The 32-year-old Canada native — who shares 5-year-old daughter True and an 8-month-old baby boy with Khloé — signed with the L.A.-based NBA team in April.
“Tristan is feeling ecstatic and couldn’t be more proud to join the Lakers. He’s excited to reunite with LeBron (James) because they’re good friends on and off the court,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly at the time. “It feels like home to him, being back with friends and so close to Khloé and the kids. He feels like this is a whole new chapter in his life, his new home, a new team. It really is a dream come true.”
Since the former Cleveland Cavaliers athlete’s Lakers move, several of the 38-year-old Good American’s family has supported his team. Kim and mother Kris Jenner have both stepped out at Lakers games earlier this month, while a second insider told Us that Khloé — who “liked” Thompson’s social media announcement about the move — was equally “thrilled” by the news.
“He’ll be in L.A. much more often so he can be closer to his kids and spend even more time with them,” the source added of the Revenge Body alum. “She’s so proud of him and all the hard work he’s done which has led up to this huge accomplishment.”
Khloé and Thompson — who also shares 6-year-old son Prince with Jordan Craig and 17-month-old son Theo with Maralee Nichols — split for good in late 2021 after he was sued for child support by Nichols, 31, who claimed the NBA star got her pregnant when he was still dating Khloé. Theo was born in December 2021, one month before Thompson confirmed the baby’s paternity and publicly apologized to the Strong Looks Better Naked author for his transgressions.
