Tristan Thompson hopes to return to Cleveland as soon as possible so he can get back to his basketball training routine with Cavs' staff — but sources tell RadarOnline.com that his baby mama, Khloe Kardashian, won't let him!
Just two months after the NBA star's cheating scandal exploded, insiders reveal Thompson, 27, is so "miserable" that he's gained eight pounds and "doesn't feel comfortable being stuck with Khloe 24/7."
Meanwhile, the new mother, 33, is smothering her cheating baby daddy.
"She will not let him leave, telling him that he has months before training season even starts," noted a source close to the situation, adding Kardashian is "begging" him to stay because she needs him in LA to help with the baby.
"Tristan's more than happy to take True back to Cleveland, but Khloe insists she doesn't want to go back there for a while," said the source.
Earlier this month, Radar reported Kardashian would be returning to L.A. — and, against her family's wishes, she would be bringing her boyfriend.
"The best thing for the both of them would be space," an insider claimed, explaining Kardashian is resistant to the idea because she "wants the family thing so bad."
The couple eventually decided to travel to Los Angeles from Cleveland with their daughter for Father's Day.
They then got busy posting a series of photos depicting their supposedly happy life. In one of the shots, Thompson was seen holding hands with his newborn.
Despite all the social media displays of affection, Thompson still wants out.
"He feels trapped in this situation and feels Khloe's using the baby to manipulate him into staying close to her," said the source.
