‘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 have certainly 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,’ his statement read. 

Before the revelations, Tristan had demanded a paternity test numerous times to prove the legitimacy of Maralee’s claims that he was the father, and as of November it was said she had not taken it.

Maralee, 31, a fitness model, gave birth to a son on December 1, which was said to have been conceived back in March 2021 when he and Khloe were still together.

She was pictured heavily pregnant walking around the Marina Del Rey area of Los Angeles on November 20. 

Court documents obtained back in December first revealed that Nichols was suing Thompson for child support as well as for reimbursement of medical expenses and pregnancy-related costs. 

However she said: ‘I did not file any request for child support before our child was born,’ in conversation with E! News. 

Additionally Nichols had reportedly filed to submit text messages between she and Thompson as evidence for her paternity lawsuit which show how he wanted her to terminate the pregnancy, reveal he has no plans to be involved in the child’s life and tried to offer her hush money.    

In denial? He had filed a gag order request back in December saying Nichols’: ‘intention all along [was] to try to achieve some sort of notoriety and gain for herself in this lawsuit’ by accusing him of fathering a third child

Liar liar! Nichols broke her silence on her relationship with Thompson just two weeks ago, in conversation with E! News: ‘He told me he was single and co-parenting. I would never have gotten involved with Tristan if I thought he was in a relationship,’ she maintained 

‘You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. Won’t be involved at all. Btw if you think having this baby is gonna make you some money. It’s completely wrong,’ the text message allegedly sent by the NBA player read.

‘You are aware that I’m retiring after this season. So in terms of support it will be whatever is required monthly or someone who’s unemployed. It’s texas (sic) 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.’  

Additionally attorneys for Nichols claim that the communications show Thompson ‘addressing the parties’ relationship’ and ‘insisting that she get an abortion and threatening that she will get next to nothing with lesser support requirements in Texas.’

In a copy of a shocking text message obtained by Radar, Thompson allegedly offers Nichols $75,000 to keep quiet and warns that he is retiring after this NBA season and would therefore be unemployed.

He had filed a gag order request back in December saying Nichols’: ‘intention all along [was] to try to achieve some sort of notoriety and gain for herself in this lawsuit’ by accusing him of fathering a third child.

Nichols broke her silence on her relationship with Thompson just two weeks ago, in conversation with E! News where she spoke about not knowing he was in a relationship with Khloe, not wanting a romantic relationship with him and discussed the paternity lawsuit. 

She claimed they first met back in 2020. ‘He told me he was single and co-parenting. I would never have gotten involved with Tristan if I thought he was in a relationship,’ she maintained. 

Not into it: Nichols had filed to submit text messages between she and Thompson as evidence for her paternity lawsuit which show how he wanted her to terminate the pregnancy, reveal he has no plans to be involved in the child’s life and tried to offer her hush money

Baby mama: DailyMail.com exclusively revealed in December that Thompson impregnated Nichols back in March while he and Khloe were said to be still together; a pregnant Nichols pictured November 20 

One time deal: ‘I am certain that if the child is deemed to be my child that the only date of conception was March 13, 2021, because it was my birthday,’ Thompson had said adding that his birthday was the only time they had been intimate which was disputed by her lawyers

‘I am choosing to embrace being a mother and doing the best I can for my son. I do not want any further media attention, nor do I want a romantic relationship with Tristan. My goal is to raise our son in a safe, healthy, loving and private environment.’

Of the paternity action lawsuit, she claimed that she never requested and child support before the child was born. 

‘Tristan filed a paternity action in Texas after I filed my paternity action in Los Angeles. I did not file any request for child support before our child was born. The case that Tristan brought against me was dismissed on December 15, 2021.’ 

‘I saw Tristan in March 2021 around his birthday. He told me he had wanted to see me. I agreed to meet him in Houston at a private party on March 12…Houston was one of many nights we spent together. Soon after his birthday weekend in Houston, Tristan invited me to visit him in Boston.’ 

He however disputed the claims previously in court documents. ‘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.’ 

Done for good? After news of Nichols pregnancy Khloe was reportedly ‘upset to find out that he cheated again,’ and ‘can’t believe that he is going to be a dad again,’ per PEOPLE, and the two were said to have called it quits for good following separate cheating allegations in May; pictured December 25

Independent woman: ‘I do not want any further media attention, nor do I want a romantic relationship with Tristan. My goal is to raise our son in a safe, healthy, loving and private environment,’ Nichols had said 

 He continued to say: ‘I am certain that if the child is deemed to be my child that the only date of conception was March 13, 2021, because it was my birthday.’

The statement negated previous claims he had made in court documents obtained by DailyMail.com as he had seen his birthday was the only time they had been intimate. 

It was disputed by her lawyers who claim the affair began ‘five months’ before his birthday celebration, and continued after she got pregnant — though he maintained he never continued anything after March. 

His statement was signed off on August 5, and referred to Khloe as Thompson’s ‘ex-girlfriend’ and the mother of his child.  

He and Khloe share daughter True, three, and he additionally has son Prince, four, with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
