Tristan Thompson Says He and Maralee Nichols Only Had a Sexual Relationship, Nothing More

And the story unfolds. Khloé Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson is in a messy scandal as he had an affair with his personal trainer Maralee Nichols. Things got quite complicated as fake accounts under Maralee’s name popped up and spread fake rumors. Now, Maralee and Tristan are in a legal battle where Maralee claims that he is the father of her child.

Thompson claims that if Maralee’s son is his, then he would have been conceived on his 30th Birthday in March. Maralee’s baby was born on December 1st 2021. The NBA athlete claims that their relationship was only physical and nothing more. Even though Maralee likes to claim otherwise:

“Contrary to [Nichols’] many inferences in her declaration, we did not have a serious ongoing relationship. We saw each other sporadically between December 2020 and March 13, 2021 and did not have sexual intercourse in California during that time.”

Tristan Thompson further added that Maralee Nichols told him she was having casual relationships with other athletes as well. Hence, the NBA player was under the impression that Nichols knew the extent of their relationship.

“[Nichols] told me that she had been involved with other athletes and understood the limitations of our relationship; to-wit, that we might see each other on a sporadic basis for consensual casual sex only. From December 2020 through March 2021, we saw each other on such a basis.”

In the documents, Tristan Thompson had also revealed that he first met Maralee Nichols last year in November or December. She also visited him at his house in California a few times.

Thompson further elaborated on the nature of their relationship:

“Our relationship was based on sex. We would not have seen each other in Houston if we were not going to have sex. We did not have any dates in the traditional sense at any time; there were no dining at restaurants, going to movies, traveling or any other indication of a normal relationship. There was only Snapchats of ‘where’ and ‘what time’ we would hook up and what hotels would be used.”

Moreover, there was also no other communication between the two as per him. And there were no calls, emails or text messages. The main mode of communication for Tristan and Maralee was Snapchat.

“We used Snapchat to communicate to protect our privacy. After a Snapchat message, the message is automatically deleted. If either one of us would do something to try and save the message, the other party would be notified. I was never notified that [Nichols] saved a message from me.”

They used Snapchat because the messages disappear in the app. And they were not in a proper relationship, only a casual one where they only had sex. When you take a screenshot of a Snapchat text, the other user gets notified. The only loophole around it is when you use another device to take pictures of your Snapchat conversations. This way the other user doesn’t get a notification. Apparently, Maralee Nichols exposed these messages from Tristan Thompson:

“You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. Wont [sic] be involved at all. Btw if you think having this baby is gonna make you some money. It’s completely wrong. You are aware that I’m retiring after this season. So in terms of support it will be whatever is required monthly for someone who’s unemployed. It’s texas so it will be only a couple hundred dollars. So you better off taking this 75k I’m offering cause you won’t get nothing near that with having a kid with a father who’s unemployed. All you will have is a baby with a father who has zero involvement with the child and a few hundred dollars of child support a month.”

But in his recent December 16th declaration, Tristan Thompson maintains that these “messages” that Maralee Nichols was exposing are not real:

“[Nichols] has attached to her papers many Snapchat messages which she claims are ‘real’ and represent ‘real’ communications between us. However, I strongly content that these messages have been fabricated by [Nichols].”

The legal dispute about paternity of the child between Tristan Thompson and Maralee Nichols carries on.

There is a dispute on where they should handle the case. It’s either Texas or California. Maralee Nichols alleges that she was planning to give birth to her child in California but the moms of Tristan’s other children already live there. She added saying that Tristan Thompson thinks “forum shopping in Texas will save him money ultimately in child support.”

However, Tristan Thompson maintains that Maralee Nichols is “wrongfully attacking” him during the legal proceedings:

“I filed paternity action in Texas because that is the only place where paternity could have taken place. In my pleadings, I acknowledged my responsibilities in the event that there is a finding of paternity.”

Tristan also adds that he won’t ask for custody or visitation even if the child is his.

He also recently filed an emergency gag order that would prevent Maralee from disclosing personal details about their legal battle to the public. Thompson also believes the only reason Maralee is doing this is to get fame.
