Former Texas forward and current Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson is engaged to Khloe Kardashian, according celebrity gossip magazine In Touch Weekly.

According to the magazine, the two had been dating only two months before taking the next step to marriage. Kardashian was previously married to retired NBA player (who had a brief stint with the Dallas Mavericks) Lamar Odom. TMZ reported Kardashian first filed for divorce in December 2013, but called it off after Odom was hospitalized for an overdose. She filed for divorce a second time in May. According to Hollywood Life, however, their divorce will not be finalized until six months after Kardashian’s filing.

In Touch also reported Thompson and Kardashian plan on marrying on a reality television show, much like Kardashian’s previous marriage to Odom. According to an “insider,” Kris Jenner is encouraging it.

“Kris is terrified that fans will lose interest [in KUWTK],” the source told In Touch. “She desperately wants a new project to work on and thinks Khloé and Tristan’s show would be ratings gold, especially if they include all the drama surrounding the basketball player leaving his pregnant ex for her daughter.”

The magazine’s report has yet to be confirmed by Kardashian or Thompson or any official representatives.

No word on how the Cavaliers have taken the news, but according to weekly Cleveland magazine Cleveland Scene, Thompson’s stats are sure to take a nosedive this year.
