Maralee Nichols issued a statement following an admission by Thompson that a paternity test had recently proven he was the father of her newborn son. In the statement, Thompson made it appear as if he just found out about the paternity, and decided to apologize to Kardashian for the way he has treated her. Well, Maralee decided to call him out for late admission.
“There was never any doubt that Tristan Thompson was the father of Maralee Nichols’ baby,” a spokesperson for the woman said.

She continued, “Tristan made numerous false and defamatory statements and declarations about Maralee over the past few months, and she is taking his contrite statement today in the context of all of those statements.”
As we reported, Tristan posted a lengthy and emotional statement on Instagram — directed at Khloe Kardashian — admitting that not only is he the father of the baby, but seemingly admitting to cheating on her while they were still together.
“Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nich0ls. I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publically and privately,” Thompson wrote.

The NBA star decided to direct a specific statement to Kardashian, adding, “Khloe, 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 utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
Unfortunately, Thompson fathered the child on his birthday, which was clearly during a time period where he was back together with Khloe Kardashian. Also, Tristan started this process by blasting his baby mama claiming she was doing this to “gain” fame, and even reportedly asked her to end the pregnancy.

Interestingly, Khloe’s ex-husband Lamar Odom jumped into the conversation offering his support to Khloe after going through a nasty split with Kardashian himself. “I truly wish nothing but the best for her and I’m hoping we can reconnect and talk one day as friends,” Odom said. Adding, “She is a good person and deserves the world.”
At this point, Tristan and Maralee are fighting in court over child support and other ongoing financial support for their child. As we reported, Tristan attempted to have the case heard in Texas, hoping to pay less in child support due to the different laws compared to California. A Texas judge tossed the case, and it appears the arguments will be heard in Los Angeles. But, because the couple isn’t married, the case will be sealed.
