Tristan Thompson helps Drake marry 23 women in music video

Tristan Thompson stars in Drake’s latest music video and helps the rapper marry 23 women in ‘Falling Back’.

The professional basketball player acts as Drake’s best man in the nine-minute video, which appeared Friday featuring the Grammy winner’s surprise seventh album, “Honestly, Nevermind.”

“Are you ready?” Thompson, 31, asks in the opening.

When Drake, 35, confirms that he is, his compatriot replies, “[If it] doesn’t feel right, we delete it, we go home, it’s done.”

But the “Degrassi” alum replies, “No, I’m fine, bro. It’s a good time for me. I’m ready to settle down. I’m in love.”

Thompson helps Drake adjust his bow tie and beard, saying he’s “lucky” for the charts and that he should get it “right” as he’ll “only get married once”.

The rest of the polygamy-themed music video documents Drake’s marriage to a long line of Instagram models in white dresses. He gives each of the brides a ring, while making secret handshakes with some of them at the altar.

“I think he’s taking this one really seriously,” Drake’s mother, Sandi Graham, told another guest at the ceremony.

Thompson shared a shot on set Friday via his Instagram Stories, writing: “You’ve done it again @champagnepapi.”

Notably, the music video’s release — and the Chicago Bulls player’s cameo — comes a day after Thompson’s December 2021 cheating scandal unfolded on “The Kardashians.”

Khloé Kardashian called her on-again, off-again boyfriend actions “despicable” in Thursday’s episode after finding out he fathered a child with fitness model Maralee Nichols.

“Would Tristan tell me if there wasn’t a baby involved?” the 37-year-old asked “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” in a confessional. “Absolutely not, and that says a lot about his character.”

Though Thompson hasn’t discussed the show’s current storyline yet, he apologized to Kardashian in January after confirming his paternity.

“You don’t deserve the grief and humiliation I inflicted on you,” he told his ex at the time. “You don’t deserve the way I’ve treated you over the years.”

The NBA star cheated on Good American co-founder in 2018 while pregnant with their now 4-year-old daughter True, and again in 2019 with Kylie Jenner’s then-best friend Jordyn Woods.

He is also father to 5-year-old son Prince with ex Jordan Craig.
