In the event you haven’t been keeping up with the serial cheater, Thompson is in quite the… entanglement.
Last month, The Blast reported on the NBA star’s latest cheating scandal with a Houston-based personal trainer.
The odds are not in Tristan’s favor
The length of the affair is unclear as both Nichols and Thompson have told different accounts of their sexcapades, but one this is clear, Nichols got pregnant and claims it is his son.
She gave birth at the beginning of the month, and gave her baby boy the ‘Thompson’ last name.
The two have been at war with one another since she exposed their dirty little secret, and both have filed lawsuits against one another.
Nichols filed a paternity lawsuit in California, where she currently resides and gave birth to her son.
Thompson filed a lawsuit in Texas against Nichols, and we’ve now learned a Texas judge has dismissed it entirely.
Tristan’s lawsuit against Nichols DISMISSED by Texas Judge
According to Us Weekly, a judge ruled to dismiss the paternity lawsuit and child support case filed by the NBA player in Texas.
According to a source, both Thompson, 30, and Nichols, 31, were present and gave live testimonies at the virtual hearing on Wednesday, December 15.
“Regardless of whether any act of conception occurred in Texas that could have led to the conception of the child, they [allegedly] had a lengthy relationship spanning multiple states,” the source told the outlet about Wednesday’s hearing. “The child was born in California, the mother resides there and so does Tristan. It would make sense the judge would dismiss this given the facts and the California lawsuit filed prior to the Texas one.”
Nichols took legal action against the baller in California in June, so, Thompson rebutted with his own lawsuit in Texas in July. He alleges she owns property in the Lonestar state.
Thompson filed the lawsuit in Texas in an attempt to pay less in child support.
He reportedly even threatened Nichols via text message about the lawsuit.

“You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. Wont be involved at all. Btw if you think having this baby is gonna make you some money. It’s completely wrong,” the message read.
The text continued, “You are aware that I’m retiring after this season. So, in terms of support it will be whatever is required monthly for someone who’s unemployed. It’s Texas so it will be only a couple hundred dollars. So, you better off taking this 75k I’m offering cause you won’t get nothing near that with having a kid with a father who’s unemployed.”
Thompson offered Nichols $75k in “hush money” and even encouraged her to terminate the pregnancy.
