Maralee Nichols claims Tristan Thompson 'has done nothing' to support their newborn
Tristan Thompson has been accused of not looking after his newborn son to Maralee Nichols. Reportedly, he has provided no financial assistance to her
Instagram model Maralee Nichols had recently welcomed a baby boy with NBA star Tristan Thompson and had alleged that he has not made any contacts, despite his public declaration he would help raise their son. Nichols claimed that her son's parental father has not been stepping up to the plate-like he promised. Thompson now has a total of three kids in different wives and this recent allegation by Nichols has put Thompson under tremendous pressure in front of the court.
Just a few days earlier, Thompson had publicly promised to provide financial assistance up to $40,000 in child support to each of his baby mamas: Khloé Kardashian, Jordan Craig and Nichols. However, this statement proves that all his commitments were just vague statements in front of the media. Thompson, 30, is a father to three children: son Prince, 5, daughter True, 3, and his newborn with Nichols, whose name is unknown.

The NBA player and Khloe Kardashian’s ex-fiance “has done nothing” to support his two-month-old son with Instagram model Maralee Nichols, her rep said in a statement Monday night. "Despite news reports stating otherwise, Tristan Thompson has done nothing to support his son,” Nichols’ rep, Harvey Englander, said in his statement. He has had no contact nor has he provided any financial support.” he added.
Thompson admitted to fathering Nichols’ baby in early January after a DNA test provided the truth. “Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols,” Thompson wrote on an Instagram Story at the time. “I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son.” He continued, “I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both privately and publicly.”
The Sacramento Kings star and the fitness model has now locked themselves in a bitter paternity suit after she claimed he impregnated her over his 30th birthday weekend — while he was still romantically involved with Kardashian. He vehemently denied Nichols’ claims in court documents — going as far as to threaten her — until the DNA results burst his bubble. “Khloé, you don’t deserve this,” he wrote in a second slide. “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.”
Kardashian, 37, who had supposedly dumped Thompson in June has not directly acknowledged Thompson’s latest infidelity. Reportedly, Thompson has cheated on Kardashian multiple times, including when he was caught making out with a woman while Kardashian was about to welcome their first child back in 2018. But later in a span of 1 year, the due reconciled and were planning for a second child and that's when Thompson got intimate with this Instagram model resulting in a baby boy in 2022.
