Tristan Thompson has reportedly had a months-long romance with Maralee Nichols at a time when he was supposedly dating Khloe Kardashian
Maralee Nichols has shared a pic of her son which she had with NBA star Tristan Thompson, during a months-long romance while he was supposedly dating Khloe Kardashian.
The fitness model gave birth to her baby boy on December 1 and in a statement which she released to break her silence on the matter, she said she did “everything possible” to not draw attention to her pregnancy despite Tristan claiming in court documents that this was not the case.
In the photo, Maralee is seen in front of a Christmas tree, as she cradles her son while wearing festive pyjamas.
She wrote in the caption that her only “goal” was to “raise our son in a safe, healthy, loving and private environment.”
The birth came at a time when there were rumours that Tristan and Khloe might be thinking of adding to their family and give a sibling to their daughter True.
He also has a son Prince, five, with ex Jordan Craig.
Tristan had a setback in an ongoing paternity case with a judge dismissing the basketball star’s attempts to have the case seen in Houston, Texas.
It has been reported that he will now try in California.
Tristan was thought to be dating Khloe at the time of his relationship with Maralee, who claimed he said his status was “single and co-parenting”.
In a statement which Maralee issued after the court ruling on the paternity case, she denied that they had a “casual sex” arrangement and wrote: “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.”
Maralee added: “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.”
She claimed that her first meeting with Tristan was at a party he held at his home in Encino, California in 2020.
Maralee added that he then invited her to spend time with him on Christmas, New Years and his birthday in March.
She continued: “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. I never drove a Maserati to meet Tristan, as he claimed. He has never even been in my vehicle.
“I used an Uber or was driven by friends that weekend. Houston was one of many nights we spent together. Soon after his birthday weekend in Houston, Tristan invited me to visit him in Boston.”
Maralee said that after her trip to Boston that she discovered she was pregnant.
