Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West spent Monday evening watching Khloé Kardashian’s ex Tristan Thompson play at the Staples Center.
The 39-year-old reality star sat courtside at the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Los Angeles Lakers game next to Courteney Cox and donned a puffy black coat, snakeskin pants, and sparkly boots.
She shared the view from her floor seats with her 157 million Instagram followers and even included a photo of Thompson, suggesting that she and Kanye were at the game to watch him.
When Thompson stepped up to the free throw line, Kim grabbed spectators’ attention by rising to her feet and shouting.
While it appeared as though she was cheering, fans suspected that she was heckling the Cavaliers player to divert her sister’s ex from making a basket. Her public booing would be the latest in an up-and-down relationship between the two following his 2019 cheating scandal with Kylie Jenner’s longtime bestfriend Jordyn Woods.

The Lakers won by 29 points, and speculations of the Kardashian curse resurfaced. The superstition began when Kim’s sister Kendall Jenner attended a 76ers game in 2018, and her boyfriend Ben Simmons’s team lost their only home game of the season to the Cavaliers, which had no wins on the road up until that point.
While the Lakers’ Twitter account acknowledged Kim for bringing good luck to the team, others worried that she’d brought the alleged curse to the court just by attending.
Ohhhh Kim kardashian is at the lakers game? The kardashian curse, we finna lose #LakeShow

Kim’s appearance at Thompson’s game was a development in the Kardashian-Jenner family’s seemingly improving relationship with Thompson, and he reportedly attended their annual Christmas party in December. Khloé, who shares her daughter True with the NBA player, isn’t forgetting the scandal and shared an Instagram post captioned, “2019, Im happily saying goodbye.”
