It's checkout time! has learned Cleveland Cavaliers star Tristan Thompson has tried to make it seem he's happy in Los Angeles shacking up with Khloe Kardashian — but a source connected to the power forward says it's all a big facade.

In fact, Thompson can't wait to get back to Ohio, and he is using LeBron James' recent departure from the Cavs to make his case.

"He told Khloe now that Bron’s gone, it’s his team and he’s got to get back to Cleveland immediately to lift the boys up," the source told Radar.

It appears 27-year-old Thompson's ploy has worked.

The source said Thompson was able to convince Kardashian and she's supportive of his expanding role on the team.

"Khloe understood and agreed with Tristan and he’s wrapping things up and heading home soon," said the insider.

As Radar previously reported, Kardashian's family has been giving Thompson shade after he got caught cheating on her while she was pregnant with their daughter, True.

The tension got so bad Thompson blocked Kim Kardashian from his Instagram account, setting off another bitter battle within the reality clan.

Do you think Khloe should wash her hands of Tristan once and for all, or should she keep trying to make their relationship work?
