JORDAN Craig, Tristan Thompson’s original baby mama, is mourning the passing of her father, Carl.
The movie producer, who produced everything from movies like Mo’ Money and House Party 3 to TV shows like Real Husbands of Hollywood and The Bobby Brown Story, passed away over the weekend.
The cause of death is yet to be released.
On Thursday, Jordan shared her thoughts on Instagram.
“Every single day, the hardest thing for me to do is wake up and face this new reality,” she wrote. “I just don’t know if or when I will ever be able to gather myself to accept this, much less write in past tense about you.
“You are the GREATEST example of a Man- The Perfect Husband of 38yrs, Girl Dad of 3, Brother of 6, Friend & Colleague to so many.
“Growing up, all of my peers thought of you as their father figure…that’s how dedicated you were to being the perfect example of a Father and I know I am the luckiest girl in the world to have you as my own!
“Today, although my pain cuts so incredibly deep, I can only be thankful that throughout my life, you’ve properly prepared me for this time.
“Without a doubt, you have given me all of the tools, wisdom and knowledge I need to make it in this world on my own.”
Some of Hollywood’s biggest stars also shared their condoloences.
Tiffany Haddish wrote: “This one hurts a lot…You taught me so much about this business. You protected me, pushed me, scolded me, advised me, and congratulated me. I love you and I will keep you in my memories and heart R.I.P.”
Tisha Campbell reflected: “Heartbroken to hear about the passing of Carl Craig. What a wonderful person and I will forever remember our lunches on the set and our impactful talks about everything under the sun from the business to religion.”
While Vivica A Fox commented: “He was such a creative & kind gentleman! Prayers Up!”
BABY MAMA DRAMA
As she grieves, Jordan finds herself a bystander in her ex boyfriend Tristan’s unfolding baby scandal drama.
Jordan is a social media influencer and lifestyle blogger who has her own website where she promotes healthy living and style.
She met Tristan in 2014 and they were together for about two years. They share 5-year-old son Prince.
The couple split sometime in 2016, but the exact time is not clear.
Tristan started seeing Khloe Kardashian in August of that year but has always been adamant that he and Jordan had already broken up before they got together.
In July 2019 he addressed the rumors that he had cheated on his ex with Kardashian.
He tweeted, “When I met Khloe I was SINGLE. The negative comments that are constantly being directed towards her are unnecessary.
“She does not deserve all this backlash for my wrongdoings. Both Khloè and Jordan have been nothing but great mothers to my kids.”
However, Tristan did go on to cheat on Khloe, recently admitting to fathering a child with with fitness instructor Maralee Nichols.
In a statement on Instagram, Tristan apologized for denying Maralee’s claims that he was the father of the 1-month-old baby boy.
“Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to amicably raising our son,” Tristan said in his statement.
“I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”
