Lamar Odom took to social media Thursday to throw shade at Tristan Thompson following their heated exchange over their mutual ex-girlfriend, Khloe Kardashian. Odom reposted a tweet taking a dig at Thompson, suggesting he was keeping up his online clash with the retired NBA player.  

“NBA Twitter watching Tristan Thompson pretend to act tough on Lamar Odom,” read the tweet, which came with an edit of NBA players smiling and laughing while showing a straight face in response to Fergie’s rendition of the national anthem at the 2018 NBA All-Star Game.

Odom’s dig came after Thompson threatened him for leaving a flirty comment on Kardashian’s bikini pic on Instagram. Last week, the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star shared a photo of herself in bikinis, standing under an outdoor shower. Odom wrote “hottie” in response to the photo, before adding heart and heart-eye emojis.

Thompson, who initially commented some flirty emojis on his ex’s post, returned with another comment after noticing Odom’s response to the snap. “lamarodom God brought you back the first time,” he wrote. “Play if you want, different results,” he told Odom.  The Boston Celtics player has been posting flirty comments on Kardashian’s Instagram posts since their split last month.

Kardashian was married to Odom from 2009 to 2013 but their divorce wasn’t finalized until December 2016, after she temporarily withdrew her petition after his drug overdose in October 2015. In September 2016, Kardashian and Thompson confirmed their relationship and confirmed that they were expecting their first child together. In 2019, they called it quits when Thompson cheated on her with Kylie Jenner’s former friend, Jordyn Woods.

Thompson and Kardashian rekindled their romance in August 2020 after spending time together in quarantine, but they broke up once again earlier this year.

A source close to the couple told PEOPLE earlier that Kardashian remains loyal to Thompson despite their split and that it’s “very possible” that they would get back together eventually. “For now, Khloe is single and seems okay with it,” the source told the outlet. “She continues to co-parent with Tristan and they spend time together as a family. Even though he has disappointed Khloe so many times she is still very loyal to Tristan.”
