Tristan Thompson revealed that he used a secret social media account to covertly keep in contact with his mistress as he continued to date Khloe Kardashian.
In court documents, the NBA star admitted he went under the name "blkjesus00" on Snapchat, noting he liked the platform because the messages between him and personal trainer Maralee Nichols were "automatically" erased after being read.
"We never had any telephone calls, emails, nor did we exchange text messages. We only communicated via the Snapchat application," Tristan said in a Dec. 8 court filing, which was obtained by Daily Mail. "My username on Snapchat has always been 'blkjesus00.' We used Snapchat to communicate to protect our privacy."
Earlier this month reports claimed that Tristan fathered a child with Maralee. Although the NBA player has questioned the paternity of the child, he admitted to having sex with the woman on his 30th birthday, when he was still dating Khloe.
"As I stated, our relationship was based on sex. We would not have seen each other in Houston if we were not going to have sex," Tristan wrote in the docs. "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. There was only Snapchats of 'where' and 'what time' we would hook up and what hotels would be used."
Maralee, who lived in Texas but moved to Los Angeles, is suing for child support.
Following reports of the hookup, Tristan asked a judge to issue a gag order so that Maralee wouldn't speak about the pregnancy or newborn. In his new court filing, he also claimed that Maralee "fabricated" a leaked screenshot of a Snapchat message in which he purportedly urged her to get an abortion and offered her $75,000 to stay quiet about the pregnancy and child.
In that alleged message, which TMZ published, Tristan purportedly told Maralee he "won't be involved" in the child's life. Still, he said he would pay child support if the baby is his.
This would be Tristan's third child, as he shares 4-year-old son Prince Thompson with ex Jordan Craig and 3-year-old daughter True with Khloe.
