Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson threaten to sue woman claiming NBA star is father of her baby
The 35-year-old reality TV star, shortly after responding to rumors that she's pregnant again with Thompson, sent a cease and desist letter to a woman claiming to have a child with the NBA star
Khloe Kardashian is reportedly having none of it when it comes to ex Tristan Thompson. The 35-year-old reality star, shortly after responding to rumors that she's pregnant again with Thompson, sent a cease and desist letter to a woman claiming to have a child with the NBA star, according to E! News.
Marty Singer, the former couple's attorney, penned the letter asking Kimberly Alexander to “immediately stop defaming them with malicious defamatory lies and specious fabrications” after she reportedly claimed that the Cleveland Cavaliers player is the father of her baby.
In the cease and desist letter obtained by the entertainment outlet, Singer confirmed that Thompson, 29, had taken a paternity test in January 2020 and received a negative result. She reportedly cited paperwork purporting to be from a lab that specializes in DNA testing services.
But Alexander insisted Thompson take a second test, which he has reportedly agreed to take as long as it is performed by an AABB-accredited lab. Meanwhile, Singer has alleged that Alexander was "fired" from attorney Lisa Bloom’s firm after they couldn't "resolve" her claims. “I did previously represent her,” Bloom told Page Six on Thursday, “And I wish her the best.”
According to Singer, Alexander is only looking for notoriety. “It is obvious that the reason you are spreading these lies about my clients is because you want your 15 minutes of fame,” the letter read. “My clients will not tolerate your despicable conduct.”
“It has been proven that Mr. Thompson is not the father of your child and we demand that you stop claiming that he is, and that he and Ms. Kardashian somehow falsified the paternity test results,” it continued. “It is defamatory per se to falsely assert that someone is a deadbeat dad who allegedly does not support his children, and to falsely accuse my clients of faking paternity test results.”
Thompson shares daughter True, 2, with Kardashian and son Prince, 3, with ex Jordan Craig.
That said, Singer is now demanding that Alexander take down all social media posts regarding her claims and refrain from posting anything about Thompson or Kardashian.
“This is an extremely serious matter,” the letter ends. “If you disregard this letter’s demands, you do so at your peril since you will soon find yourself in court facing multi-million-dollar claims while attempting to defend your indefensible misconduct.”
This comes a month after reports that the Good American founder was under pressure to take her Canadian basketball player ex back and that she wants another baby with him. Despite their split, the duo along with their daughter are quarantining together amid the coronavirus lockdown.
"They've been secretly spending lots of time together as Tristan tries to persuade her to take him back. But Khloe is worried how it will look if she takes him back, but she's also desperate for baby number two and it's really clouding her judgment,” an insider said in April.
“Khloe tries to be breezy with her friends and family, saying she will take him back to get another baby and if he cheats on her again then she'll kick him out again, no big deal because it's all about the baby,” the source added.
Khloe also revealed that she wants to use his sperm to create embryos this Summer. She confided in her sisters Kourtney and Kendall and told them she already had a discussion with Thompson who is “on board” with having a second child.
“If you can create embryos and do all the DNA testing, I do think it's a better choice. But it's weird because Tristan and I are not together so I don't know which way to go,” she said. The 29-year-old basketball star was reportedly supportive of Khloe’s decision as he told her in a video call, “I’m open to doing that and down for doing that. At the end of the day, I want to do what makes you feel comfortable and also feel the safest.”
