After months of speculation, Tristan Thompson has confirmed the news. On Instagram stories, he confirmed that he is the father of Maralee Nichols’ son. At the same time, he apologized to Khloe Kardashian for putting her through hell. Although they first met in 2016, the former couple had their first child in 2018. Since then, they have been on-again, off-again. Ultimately, they broke up few months ago.
Despite sharing a child together, Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian had a rocky relationship.
After meeting in 2016, the couple started dating instantly. In her multiple interviews, Khloe Kardashian confessed her love for Tristan Thompson and vice versa. At the end of 2017, she revealed that she is pregnant with her first child. Shortly after, news came out that Thompson cheated on his pregnant girlfriend. However, she did not let go and kept working on their relationship. Few days before her delivery, pictures of Tristan Thompson kissing someone else went viral. This time, Kardashian decided to break up. But he kept asking for forgiveness and she took him back. In 2019, Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods and Thompson hooked up. Once again, it devastated the Kardashian family. Throughout their time together, Thompson cheated on her multiple times. However, the former couple have broken up for good now.
Few weeks ago, a model names Maralee Nichols claimed that she is pregnant with Thompson’s child.
According to reports, Tristan Thompson met with Maralee Nichols in March last year on his birthday. While he claims that they only got together once, she is setting the record straight. After the news of her pregnancy came out, she chose to file a paternity court case against the NBA star. In an interview, she said:
“Over the past couple of weeks, many inaccurate and false stories have been circulated about me. I have not at any point released—nor have I directed anyone else to release—any information regarding Tristan Thompson or any litigation involving him. I have never spoken to any media outlet, nor have I leaked any information to anyone at any time. I am providing this statement because I feel I must defend my character.”
Furthermore, she claimed that he told her he was single and co-parenting. After meeting on his birthday, they met multiple times in Houston and Boston. This is when she got pregnant and told the NBA star about it. Nichols said:
“I would never have gotten involved with Tristan if I thought he was in a relationship.”
Recently, Tristan Thompson released a statement admitting that he is the father of Nicholas’ son.
On his Instagram stories, he revealed that truth about his paternity test. He said:
“Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”
Furthermore, Tristan Thompson addressed Khloe Kardashian and said:
“Khloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
So far, she has not responded over this statement.
