Tristan Thompson has apologised for the ‘humiliation’ he has caused Khloe Kardashian after paternity tests results show he is the father to Marelee Nichols’ child
Tristan Thompson has apologised to Khloe Kardashian after the results of a paternity test showed he is the father to Maralee Nichols’ newborn child.
The basketball star, 30, announced the results in a grovelling apology to his former partner on Instagram.
He took to his Story to write: “Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols.
“I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son.”
He went on to apologise to Khloe Kardashian – the mother of his three-year-old daughter, True – and anyone else who has been affected by the situation.
“I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.
“Khloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.”
He continued: “You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you.
“I have the upmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
The news comes after Tristan had repeatedly asked for a DNA test to prove he was the father after Maralee’s claims in a lawsuit that the pair had sexual intercourse over his 30th birthday weekend last March.
The basketballer admitted that he had sex with Maralee, but had denied being the father of her child.
Maralee gave birth to their son on December 1. The infant is Tristan’s third child, with the star also being father to five-year-old Prince, whom he shares with model Jordan Craig.
