KARDASHIAN fans have spotted a red flag foreshadowing of Tristan Thompson's love child scandal in clips from the famous family's new Hulu show.

In early December it was revealed that the NBA player fathered a child with his mistress Maralee Nichols.

But prior to the shocking news, Tristan, 31, attended Kourtney's engagement party to her fiancé Travis Barker.

In scenes for the Hulu show, fans noticed that the athlete spent the majority of the event looking at his phone.

One, in particular, created a compilation of clips showing the father of three checking texts instead of focusing on the exciting evening.

The follower took to TikTok to share their video as they zoomed in on the TV to show Tristan's preoccupation with his phone.

The notable Cardi B quote "that's suspicious" played in the background while the creator captioned their shots: "Walking red flag."

"Even his phone was red," they wrote, inciting a conversation in the comments.


"The red phone/cases scream red flag always for some reason too," one agreed.

"I’m surprised that man is allowed to still have a phone," a second joked.

A third noted: "Honestly he could just breathe and it would still be suspicious."

"You know he has a privacy screen too," another speculated.

"He's talking to his other girlfriend," a fifth guessed while a final laughed: "It’s only suspicious because it’s Tristan."


A producer from The Kardashians recently revealed all about the moment Khloe, 37, learned of Tristan's love child scandal.

It was captured on camera as the star discovered that her ex had fathered a child with his mistress.

Speaking to Us Weekly, The Kardashians executive producer Danielle King opened up about the moment that the shocking news broke.

It turns out that nobody, including the Good American founder and the camera crew, knew what was about to go down.

She revealed: “We were there to film something else early in the morning and the morning that news broke, we legitimately just happened to be there. We have that moment on camera.”

Danielle added: “We have a shoot scheduled five days a week, Monday through Friday. But that’s not always what we stick to.

“Oftentimes on the weekend they’ll text or call or they’ll say something’s going on so my crew will rally and will get to whatever they’re doing. It’s a set schedule but we also leave a lot of room for spontaneity.”

Danielle reassured fans that despite past accusations that the Kardashian family "set up" scenes, what Hulu viewers will see was the real, heartbreaking deal.

“There were so many moments that we genuinely captured just because we're almost always there,” she said. 

“There's almost always a camera going.”


Fitness model Maralee, 31, revealed in December that she’d given birth to a baby boy, Theo.

She had begun a long affair with the athlete while he was still dating Khloe, who is the mother to his 4-year-old daughter, True.
