Tristan Thompson has children from three different women, including on-off partner Khloe Kardashian. Here’s everything you need to know about the cheat allegations against the NBA player
Most recently, the NBA star admitted to sleeping with fitness model Maralee Nichols, who alleged that Thompson was the father of her son born in December 2021.
He later conceded that he is the father of the child, after paternity results confirmed it. His child with Nichols is his third, after son Prince who he shares with influencer Jordan Craig, and daughter True Thompson with Khloe.
Here’s what you need to know about Thompson’s real – and alleged – baby mamas.
Texas-born fitness model Maralee Nichols sued Thompson for child support after claiming they had an affair during his relationship with Khloe.
Later, she sat down with E! News to clarify her relationship with Thompson. She said: “These are the facts: I have lived in California since 2019. I am not a personal trainer. I have not worked as a personal trainer for four years; I do fitness modelling. I was never a personal trainer for Tristan.”
Though Thompson said he only slept with Nichols once and asked for a paternity test, the sportsmen later made a statement on his Instagram, accepting that he fathered a child with the former personal trainer.
He wrote: “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. I sincerely apologise to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”
He also addressed Khloe in the post, saying she didn’t deserve the “heartache and humiliation” he caused her, adding that he had “the utmost respect and love,” for the Kardashian.
Thompson began dating social media personality and Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Khloe in 2016, just three months before the birth of his son Prince with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig. Khloe, gave birth to their daughter True in August 2018.
The pair have always had an on-off relationship, due to Thompson’s various cheating scandals. They called it quits after Jordyn Woods revealed that she and Thompson kissed at a house party in February 2019.
While the split didn’t last long and they reconciled in August 2020, the couple once again went their separate ways in June 2021.
Influencer and lifestyle blogger Jordan Craig began dating Thompson in 2014, announcing in April 2016 that she was pregnant with his first child. Little Prince was born in December of the same year.
Thompson began dating Khloe while Craig was still pregnant, and the couple broke up shortly after Prince’s birth.
The 30-year-old businesswoman is the CEO of apparel brand What Jordy Wore. She is also reportedly a first cousin of Kevin Hart’s wife, Eniko Parrish.
Model Kimberly Alexander was thrust into the limelight in 2020 after she claimed to have had a fling with Thompson. She alleged that the athlete fathered her son.
Thompson denied the claims and demanded a DNA test which later revealed that he was not the father. He also filed a libel suit against Alexander for her allegations.
At the time, the NBA put out a statement which read: “I am the father of two young children. I love my children and take my responsibilities as a father extremely seriously.
He added: “Had the DNA test results shown that Ms. Alexander’s child was my son, I would have done the same for Ms. Alexander’s child without hesitation.”
He went on to state that Alexander’s claims that he “would neglect his parental duties,” was “incredibly damaging” to his reputation.
