Khloe Kardasian’s Ex Tristan Thompson Files For Guardianship Of His Brother
September 8, 2023
NBA star Tristan Thompson is asking a court to give him guardianship over his brother with special needs after the Kardashian family stepped in to help.
According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Thompson filed a petition for guardianship which would give him the ability to care for and make medical decisions for his brother, Amari Thompson.
Amari lived with his mother, Andrea Brooks, until her sudden death on January 5, 2023. As we reported, Khloe and the Kardashian family rushed to Canada to support Thompson following the death.
Since the death, “Amari has been in the custody of (Tristan) and he has been providing care, maintenance, and support to Amari,” the filing states.
Tristan Thompson’s Brother Has Been Living With Him & Khloe Kardashian
As you know, Khloe Kardashian recently posted about taking in the 17-year-old after Thompson’s home had some roof issues. It should be noted, he lives 3 doors down from the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star.
In the documents, Tristan accuses Amari’s father of being a deadbeat dad. He writes, “Amari’s father, Trevor Thompson, has actively been absent from Amari’s life since Andrea Brooks received sole custody of Amari and a support order against Trevor Thompson in July of 2014. Trevor Thompson has never fulfilled any of his support obligations towards Amari and has been actively avoiding them.”
Thompson claims he has attempted to contact Amari’s father, but he is unable to reach him. “Trevor Douglas Thompson has effectively abandoned the proposed ward; he failed to pay any child support despite the court order and has not been in contact with the proposed ward or Andrea Marie Brooks since July 2014. He has done nothing to support or raise the proposed ward since then and has relinquished all rights to have any say in the proposed ward’s care,” the filing reads.
Tristan Thompson’s Brother Stands To Inherit Money Following Mother’s Death
He continues, “In addition, Amari has medical diagnoses that render him unable to provide basic care for himself and requires a Guardian to provide that care as well as take him to medical appointments.”
Tristan is asking for the guardianship to include control of Amari’s finances because he is set to inherit money. “Amari is set to receive approximately $103,475 as a result of his mother’s passing. A Guardian is also needed to protect Amari’s inheritance from loss or injury,” it states.
Unfortunately, Amari is in need of 24-hour care and because “Amari is a minor and has medical conditions that render him unable to take care of himself or seek gainful employment. Appointing a guardian for Amari would be in his best interest because it would ensure that someone would be responsible for providing and fulfilling his basic needs.”

Further, Amari is set to receive a modest inheritance from his recently deceased mother, and a guardian would be able to manage and invest Amari’s inheritance on his behalf.
At this point, Tristan is telling the court he has been taking care of his brother for over 6 months. The extended Kardashian family has ensured Amari has made all of his medical appointments and met his basic needs. Obviously, it appears the family has stepped up in this situation.
