Maralee Nichols, the mother of Tristan Thompson‘s third child, is speaking out after a report claimed that the NBA player could be paying up to $40,000 in child support to each of his kids’ mothers.
“Despite news reports stating otherwise, Tristan Thompson has done nothing to support their son. He has not made any attempt to meet their son nor has he provided any financial assistance,” Maralee’s rep told Page Six
Thompson, 30, is a father to three children: son Prince, 5, with Jordan Craig; daughter True, 3, with Khloé Kardashian; and his newborn with Nichols, whose name is unknown.
Thompson admitted to fathering Nichols’ baby in early January after a DNA test confirmed 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.”
Tristan went on to apologize to Khloé as it appears that he and Kardashian were together when Nichols got pregnant.
“Khloé, you don’t deserve this. 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. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
Khloé reportedly dumped Tristan in June and has since been amicably co-parenting with him.
“They’re getting along. There is no drama,” a source said, adding that “everything is amicable, and they are on the same page with co-parenting.”
