AceShowbiz - Tristan Thompson has recently sparked dating rumors after he was spotted on a date with the same woman, who is later identified as 28-year-old model Karizma Ramirez, twice in New York. Now that her identity has been revealed, it appears Karizma is not happy with the attention she's getting and insists that there's nothing going on between her and the athlete.
"Karizma is upset by all the rumors that she's dating Tristan. Karizma's telling people that it's all getting blown out of proportion and swears nothing has happened between her and Tristan," a so-called friend of the model tells HollywoodLife.com. "She hardly knows him and hates that people are just assuming there's something going on with them."
The said friend continues saying, "She's only hung out with Tristan a couple of times with friends after he told her he was broken up with Khloe [Kardashian], she would never want to disrespect Khloe. Karizma is very clear she and Tristan are not dating, she's just barely getting to know him."
Tristan and Karizma were first spotted last week, when they were having dinner at Carbone in New York City. However, a source noted at the time that she was Jordan Clarkson's date instead of Tristan's. The two were later spotted together again in the Big Apple on March 5. The rumored lovebirds were caught on camera after enjoying a dinner at Nobu. Earlier in the day, the Cleveland Cavaliers player was spotted bringing two cups of coffee to his hotel room.
Prior to this, Tristan famously dated Khloe Kardashian for around two years before breaking up due to cheating scandal. They share a daughter, True Thompson, together. He also has a son named Prince whom he shares with ex Jordan Craig. Meanwhile, Karizma was previously linked to Chris Brown and NBA star Shane Larkin.
