Tristan Thompson appears to be trying to win Khloe Kardashian back. The basketball player paid his ex a compliment on Instagram recently, after she posted a sexy picture of herself online.

Kardashian shared a picture of her in a white outfit that reveals her slender legs on her Instagram page. “Good American,” she captioned the post, referring to her clothing brand.

The post has over 1.7 million likes as of this writing, and one of the comments is from the reality TV star’s ex.

“WOW! PERFECTION! WOW,” Thompson wrote in his comment, E! News reported.

He also included a couple of princess and red heart emojis in his comment.

Kardashian and Thompson split earlier this year after a cheating scandal involving the basketball player and Jordyn Woods, who was a friend of the reality TV star’s family back then. The athlete has been on friendly terms with his ex after the breakup, and the two share a daughter together.

This is not the first time that Thompson has been in news for complimenting his ex on Instagram. He previously shared a photo of Kardashian and praised her for winning the best reality TV star award for 2019, which makes her the winner of the award two times in a row.

Apart from the family’s reality TV series, Kardashian is also famous for her own show “Revenge Body.” While praising his ex, Thompson said that her show stands out for him because it challenges people to fight in order to be better. He added that he is proud of what his ex and her sisters have been able to achieve in the past year and called them “role models” for the younger generation.

A source previously told E! News that Thompson has been trying to win Kardashian back. Will the praising of his ex be enough?
