The pair were first spotted together on February 27 while having dinner at Carbone in New York City. When the Cleveland Cavaliers player, 27, showed off his pasta dish from the Italian restaurant on his Instagram Stories, followers immediately spied the fingernails of a woman in the background, who turned out to be the model, 28. Thompson deleted the post soon after and later uploaded a video with two male friends.
Thompson and Ramirez had dinner together again on Tuesday, March 5, at Nobu while the athlete’s team was back in the Big Apple for a game against the Brooklyn Nets.
The news of the duo spending time together comes nearly a month after Kardashian, 34, ended her two-plus-year relationship with the NBA pro for cheating on her with Kylie Jenner’s BFF Jordyn Woods. He had previously been unfaithful to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star while she was pregnant with their daughter, True, now 10 months.
