Tristan Thompson suffers big loss in paternity battle with 'baby mama' Maralee Nichols after judge dismisses Texas case

TRISTAN Thompson suffered a major loss in his paternity case this week, as the judge dismissed the Texas filing regarding his alleged baby mama Maralee Nichols.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star confessed to having a fourth-month affair with the personal trainer, though he was still dating Khloe Kardashian at the time.


A judge presiding over the paternity lawsuit has dismissed Tristan's case filed in Texas, according to Us Weekly.

Both Tristan, 30, and Maralee, 31, presented their testimonies in a virtual hearing on Wednesday.

In June, the fitness instructor filed a paternal lawsuit against the NBA star in California, and in July, he hit back with his own filed in Texas.

“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,” a source told the publication regarding the Wednesday 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.”

BABY NUMBER THREE?

Earlier this month, the news broke that Maralee welcomed a son after she claimed to have had an affair with Tristan.

The new mother said the child was conceived on the night of the athlete's March 13 birthday, although he was still in a relationship with Khloe, 37, at the time.

According to legal documents filed in August, Tristan had offered to pay Maralee $75,000 instead of child support in a series of messages.

The texts allegedly read: “My feelings haven’t changed at all. [I] won’t be involved at all.

"Btw if you think having this baby is gonna make you some money. It’s completely wrong. 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,” the messages reportedly read.

“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. All you will have is a baby with a father who has zero involvement with the child and a few hundred dollars of child support a month.”

Tristan already shares his son Prince, four, with his ex Jordan Craig and his daughter True, three, with Khloe.

SHOCKING CONFESSION

Earlier this week, it was revealed that the Sacramento Kings player confessed in court documents that he had a "four-month affair with baby mama" Maralee and sent "sex messages" while still dating the Good American founder.

In the papers, Tristan said he and the personal trainer had sex many times and had been hooking up for several months.

He initially claimed that they met up and only had sex several times on his 30th birthday in March, though he has since admitted that was not the case.

In the court documents, Tristan revealed that he began chatting with Maralee on Snapchat, where he used the name "blkjesus00."

Through the photo and video sharing app, the two would discuss when and where they would meet up for sex.

In the filing, Tristan and his legal team asserted: "Contrary to Petitioner's many inferences in her declaration, we did not have a serious ongoing relationship."

He went on: "We saw each other sporadically between December 2020 and March 13, 2021, and did not have sexual intercourse in California during that time.

"Petitioner told me that she had been involved with other athlete and understood the limitations of our relationship; to-wit, that me might see each other on a sporadic basis for consensual casual sex only.

"From December 2020 through March 2021, we saw each other on such a basis. We never had any telephone calls, emails, nor did we exchange text messages. We only communicated via the Snapchat application."

END GAME

Maralee wants to sue for paternity in California, where she claims the baby was conceived.

Tristan denies ever having sex with his mistress in California, but did admit in the filing that he had her at his Los Angeles home on "maybe two occasions."

The Sun exclusively reported that Khloe found out about Tristan's latest child on social media, and she was "shocked to the core."
