Tristan Thompson is Officially Named Legal Guardian of Disabled Brother Amari

Written by on February 27, 2024

(Daily Mail) – Khloe Kardashian’s ex Tristan Thompson has officially become the legal guardian of his disabled brother Amari, 17.

Tristan was awarded temporary legal guardianship of Amari in September 2023, eight months after their mother Andrea’s shock death of a heart attack aged just 53.

Now, a court has signed off on making it permanent, according to a ruling on Monday, TMZ reports.   

Amari has been confined to a wheelchair by Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a particularly acute type of epilepsy that has rendered him in need of constant care. 

Thompson, 32, filed a petition earlier this month to become Amari’s sole legal guardian and conservator – and said he had been unable to locate his and Amari’s father, Trevor Thompson, per documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight.

Trevor was ordered to pay child support when Andrea  assumed sole legal guardianship of Amari in 2014.
