Tristan thompson faces more baby mom dramas.
According to Daily mail, the 30-year-old NBA star was slapped with a paternity lawsuit filed by Maralee Nichols, a personal trainer who claims to be pregnant with her third child. Nichols, who is due to give birth on Friday (December 3), is suing Thompson for child support as well as reimbursement for pregnancy-related expenses.
The complaint alleges the baby was conceived around Thompson’s birthday in March, when he and Nichols had sex at a Houston hotel. If the claims are true, the intercourse took place months before Thompson broke up with Khloe kardashian – the mother of her 3-year-old daughter, True.
According to legal documents obtained by the Daily Mail, Thompson admitted to having sex with Nichols around the time of his 30th birthday celebration, but insisted it was just an affair of one night. Nichols refuted the account, saying his relationship with Thompson began five months before the hotel incident and continued for months afterwards.
âWhen we got to my hotel room, we immediately had sex,â Thompson said in a statement. “Petitioner [Nichols] initiated our sexual contact and never objected to us having sex. She was very wide awake and conscious and showed no signs that she was other than a willing participant in our sexual activities.
The lawsuit also includes text messages Nichols allegedly received from Thompson. In one of the texts, the Sacramento Kings player tells the woman that he has no plans to get involved in the child’s life and urges the woman to take $ 75,000 in secret money. He went on to tell Nichols that the offer is way more than what she’ll get if she tries to get child support as he plans to retire from the league after this season.
âYou know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. Won’t be involved at all,â he reportedly wrote. âBy the way, if you think having that baby is going to make you money . This is completely wrong. You know I’m retiring after this season. So in terms of support, that will be all that is required on a monthly basis for an unemployed person. It’s Texas so it’s only going to be a few hundred dollars. So you better take these 75k I’m giving you because you won’t have anything quite as close to having a child with an unemployed dad.
According to the lawsuit, Thompson denied sending the text.
In addition to True, Thompson has another child – a 4-year-old son Prince Thompson – with his ex-girlfriend, model Jordan Craig. Thompson has not publicly addressed the child support lawsuit.
