Tristan Thompson Allegedly Tried To Take Advantage Of Texas Child Support Law In Leaked Texts

Tristan ThompsonMaralee, the alleged baby mom, was allegedly offered a bribe by trying pay her $75,000 in return for dropping her paternity case against him. In texts allegedly sent by the basketball player, he encouraged Nichols to take the money, claiming she won’t get as much if she goes through with her lawsuit. 

Thompson’s Threatening Texts

“You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. Will not be involved at any time. You might think having a baby will make you rich. It’s completely wrong,” the text read. “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 message continued. “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.” Thompson denies sending the text messages, but court documents claim that “his contact information is present in the messages.”

Nichols’ attorney argued in the initial filing that Thompson intentionally filed his complaint in Texas in order to pay less in child support. It’s a moot point anyway; Nichols has since moved to California and her child, reportedly a boy, was born there sometime during the first week of December. Texas law would not have jurisdiction over the child support ruling. according to Page Six

Is the Baby His?

The baby was allegedly conceived on Thompson’s 30th birthday, when he was still dating Khloe Kardashian. Thompson admitted to having a few affairs with the personal trainer during the celebration. The two parted ways earlier this year when Thompson was seen in a room with three women at a Beverly Hills party. Thompson has a three-year-old daughter, True, with the reality star. The basketball player also shares a four-year-old son Prince with ex Jordan Craig.

Page SixAccording to court records, Thompson allegedly wanted Nichols having an abortion after she found out that she was pregnant. He demanded that she undergo a paternity check in July.

It is not clear whether she has taken the test as of writing. One filing stated that genetic testing can only take place after the baby is born. The test can be done once both parties are willing and able, as Nichols has just given birth to a boy. Thompson stated previously that if the baby is his, Thompson will pay child support.
