Khloé Kardashian and Family Attend Funeral for Tristan Thompson’s Mother – E! Online Latino
Son No. 3: Theo
In December 2021, it came to light that Maralee Nichols had sued Tristan the previous June for pregnancy and childbirth expenses following a sexual encounter on her 30th birthday the previous March. She stated in her presentation that she is pregnant with a boy and that Tristan is her father.
In his own filing, Tristan confirmed that the two were intimate at the time in question and requested a paternity test. Maralee gave birth to the boy, Theo, in December and said in a statement to E! News that she had met the NBA star in 2020 and that he had told her that he “was single and a co-parent.”
In January 2022, Tristan announced on Instagram that “paternity test results reveal I had a child with Maralee Nichols,” adding, “Khloé, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the pain and humiliation I’ve caused you. You don’t deserve the way I’ve treated you over the years. My actions certainly haven’t aligned with the way I see you.”
In his statement, Tristan also said that he hoped to “nurture” his son with Maralee. In February, a rep for Maralee told E! News that the NBA star has made no attempt to meet the boy. Tristan has not commented.
