Tristan Thompson has been alllll up in the headlines lately, and, unsurprisingly, it's not for a good reason. In case you somehow managed to miss the millions of memes about it, Tristan and Jordyn WoodsKylie Jenner's BFF, reportedly got a little too cozy for the Kardashian's liking over Valentine's Day weekend. Yep, the NBA star cheated on Khloé again.

The fam has allegedly already kicked both Jordyn and Tristan to the curb, but we don't need to worry too much about Tristan's future. True's dad makes a boatload of $$ as a professional basketball player. How much, exactly? Let's investigate.

But wait, that's just one slice of a very large and delicious pie! Various sites that are enthusiastic about sports report that Tristan signed a 5-year $82,000,000 (P4.28 billion) contract with the Cavs, so he's earning about $16.4 million (P856.16 million) in the current 2018-19 season.

Much like every other modern celebrity, Tristan dabbles in the fine art of #SponCon. Meaning, he teams up with brands to promote their product in exchange for a fat check. The income generated through these collabs is usually kept private, but apparently in 2015 Tristan had a deal with Canada's very own Tim Hortons. Please, take a moment to sit with this blessed image:

So, What's Tristan's Total Net Worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, that would be $20 million (P1.04 billion). Like him or leave him, we can all agree that this is very impressive, so with that in mind:

If you're thinking $20 million (P1.04 billion) actually sounds kinda small considering he signed a $82 million (P4.28 billion) contract, remember that Tristan is still in the early years of said contract. Plus, he has a pretty high tax bill.

Don't Worry, Khloé Stans: She Still Has Him Beat In The Cash Money Department

Because God is fair, Khlo$ makes double the amount of money that Tristan does. She's worth a reported $40 million (P2.09 billion), so she and True are doing just fine, TYVM.
