Tristan Thompson’s alleged baby mama just revealed pictures of their newborn child, all while slamming the NBA star in the process.
Khloe Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend is reportedly the father to a beautiful baby boy, and the mother — Maralee Nichols — shared photos of the newborn along with a message taking a shot at the basketball player.
In the picture, Nichols is posed in front of a Christmas tree with her holiday pajamas on, the new baby is wearing a matching onesie. Of course, to start the baby is super cute and his mother is making sure his face is a bit covered in the image. The picture was reportedly taken five days after the baby’s birth, and Nichols claims she is done with all the media attention.
“Instead of focusing on any negativity, I am choosing to embrace being a mother and doing the best I can for my son. My goal is to raise our son in a safe, healthy, loving, and private environment,” she told People.

But, the fitness model took a shot at Thompson in the same statement, saying, “I do not want any further media attention, nor do I want a romantic relationship with Tristan.”
Unfortunately, the former couple is going through a nasty custody battle after Tristan started fighting over paternity and child support. In Maralee’s original paternity lawsuit, she asked a judge to order Thompson to pay for pregnancy-related expenses and child support once the baby is born. Khloe’s ex filed his own competing paternity case in Texas, which was dismissed. So, most likely, the custody dispute will be handled in Los Angeles.

This is an important decision because the state of Califonia family law allows for the mother or father of a child to receive child support based on the other party’s income. Unlike a few other states, judges in this state are known for ordering high amounts of child support, especially for someone with an NBA salary. As we reported, Thompson denied having any romantic connection to Nichols in California, saying the “only” possible date of conception for the child was his birthday, March 13, 2021.
Shockingly, Thompson claims he had a “sex only” relationship with Nichols, saying they only communicated on Snapchat. “We did not have any dates in the traditional sense at any time; there were no dining at restaurants, going to movies, traveling, or any other indicia of a normalized relationship,” he said in court documents. Adding, “There was only Snapchats of ‘where’ and ‘what time’ we would hook up and what hotels would be used.”

In the statement, along with the new baby pictures, Maralee denied this allegation.
“Tristan told me he was not having a sexual relationship with anyone else; it was not casual sex nor did we have any arrangement. Tristan and I communicated daily and talked on the phone. We would see each other several times a month.”
The paternity case is ongoing.
