Tristan Thompson has been trending again this month, due to reportedly cheating on Khloe Kardashian again. This is due to allegedly fathering a child with Maralee Nichols, who is said to have been his personal trainer.
Earlier this week, a judge in Texas dismissed a paternity lawsuit, which was filed by the NBA star against Nichols. This was a huge legal victory for Nichols, as a paternity lawsuit is also still ongoing in California.
Nichols Addresses Claims Made On Social Media
For Nichols, she also believes that there has been plenty of false information spread about her on social media. In a statement to E!, she discussed this speculation, and how she has never spoken to any media outlet regarding Tristan Thompson or others around him. This comes after giving birth to their reported child, earlier this month.
“Over the past couple of weeks, many inaccurate and false stories have been circulated about me. I have not at any point released—nor have I directed anyone else to release—any information regarding Tristan Thompson or any litigation involving him. I have never spoken to any media outlet, nor have I leaked any information to anyone at any time. I am providing this statement because I feel I must defend my character.”
Nichols Claims That There Have Been Fake Instagram Pages Of Her
In addition to the alleged false information about Nichols and her paternity situation, she also added that people have been posing as her on social media. This has been very common on Instagram with people using her photos and even making false statements, on her behalf.
“I have seen fake stories, unflattering photos of me, people using photos that are not even me, stating an incorrect occupation and age. “There have been multiple fake Instagram posts claiming to be me, making false statements and attaching stock photos of a sonogram and a child (neither mine).”
Nichols Also Denies Being A Personal Trainer
Nichols has been clearing up any rumor about her, and this also includes her occupation. Many media outlets have stated that she is a personal trainer.
According to Nichols though, that isn’t her current occupation, but this was the case four years ago. She was also supposedly never a personal trainer for Tristan.
“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 modeling. I was never a personal trainer for Tristan.”
Nichols Says She First Met Thompson In Houston
As for when Nichols and Thompson got romantically involved, she states that this started this past spring. In March, she met Thompson in Houston, for his private birthday party.
Following Thompson and Nichols’ get-together in Houston, the two were also said to have gotten together in Boston. During that time, Thompson was a member of the Boston Celtics. He is now with the Sacramento Kings.
“I saw Tristan in March 2021 around his birthday. He told me he had wanted to see me. I agreed to meet him in Houston at a private party on March 12. I never drove a Maserati to meet Tristan, as he claimed. He has never even been in my vehicle. I used an Uber or was driven by friends that weekend. Houston was one of many nights we spent together. Soon after his birthday weekend in Houston, Tristan invited me to visit him in Boston.”
