Putting him in the hot seat. When Khloé Kardashian’s family learned that Tristan Thompson was being sued for child support by Maralee Nichols, they didn’t hold back.
“This is Tristan speaking – these are his words,” says the narrator. This is the entirety of his declaration. During a new episode of The Kardashians, which broadcast on Thursday, June 9, Kim Kardashian told Kylie Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian that “he is asking for a paternity test and admitting that he had sex with her.” “Khloé gave him a party to celebrate his 30th birthday. So, after the 30th birthday celebration, he went home, went to Houston, Texas, to perform on the road — we can look at his calendar — and then slept with this female.”
The saddest thing for Kim, 41, was informing Khloé, 37, that her then-boyfriend was having a kid with someone else. “What’s so awful about it is that she wanted a baby boy.” And now she’s giving birth to a f–king baby boy. He slept with a f–king stranger one night? He’s f–ked. “I was all for him,” the founder of Skims continued. “We have no idea what [Khloé] knows.” How can we tell if she’s aware? That’s the problem. We have no idea. We have no idea if she even knows. She hasn’t responded.”
It was revealed at the time that the NBA player, 31, confessed hooking up with the fitness model in the past in his original December 2021 statement. Tristan openly acknowledged his now-6-month-old baby, Theo, after requesting genetic testing to establish he fathered a child with Maralee, 31.
“Today, paternity test results show that I am the father of Maralee Nichols’ child.” In January, the athlete posted on Instagram Stories, “I take full responsibility for my acts.” “Now that paternity has been verified, I am looking forward to parenting our son in a cooperative manner.”
The Canada native apologised to his on-again, off-again lover in a lengthy social media statement. “You don’t deserve this, Khloé.” You don’t deserve the pain and disgrace I’ve inflicted on you. Tristan, who has a 4-year-old daughter True with the reality star, said, “You don’t deserve the way I’ve treated you over the years.” “It’s clear that my behaviours do not reflect how I feel about you. I have the deepest admiration and affection for you. Whatever your opinion may be. Again, I apologise profusely.”
In an effort to “defend her character,” Maralee also broke her silence about the case. “Tristan and I communicated regularly and talked on the phone,” she said in a statement to Us in December 2021, stressing that their connection was “not casual sex.” We’d see each other at least once a month.”
She “tried everything possible not to bring attention to my pregnancy and the troubles with Tristan,” including taking a hiatus from social media, according to the Texas native. “I wanted my pregnancy to be as private and peaceful as possible.” “I’ve never wanted media attention for my pregnancy and wish I didn’t have to send this statement,” she continued.
Khloé gave an insight into her and Tristan’s relationship ahead of the upcoming drama on television. “I still think he’s a fantastic guy and a fantastic father.” In an April interview with Robin Roberts, she said,
“He’s just not the guy for me.” “I believe that at the end of the day, we all want to be happy. We want to be content. We want to be secure.”
