Tristan Thompson wanted a woman he allegedly got pregnant to have an abortion, court documents claim.
On Dec. 3, DailyMail.com reported that a personal trainer named Maralee Nichols is expecting a child with the NBA player. The child is due on Dec. 3.
As part of a paternity lawsuit against the Sacramento Kings player, Maralee's lawyer filed a legal request to submit text messages purportedly sent between her and Tristan. Those messages reveal that Tristan allegedly urged Maralee to get an abortion. TMZ reported that Tristan also offered her $75,000 to stay quiet about the pregnancy and child.
Court docs obtained by Page Six read, "It is also apparent from the context and substance of these communications that they are from Tristan to Maralee, which reflects that Tristan is addressing the parties' relationship, and even with respect to her pregnancy insisting that she get an abortion and threatening that she will get next to nothing with lesser support requirements in Texas."
Maralee, who moved from Houston to Los Angeles, is suing for child support. An alleged text message from Tristan, posted to TMZ, shows him telling Maralee he "won't be involved" in the child's life.
The lawsuit reveals that Maralee and Tristan had sex on his 30th birthday in March, when he and Khloe Kardashian were still dating. Those same documents included a declaration from Tristan in which he admitted to having sex with Maralee several times at a hotel after the pair attended a party together.
He maintained the hookup was a one-time thing, but she says the relationship lasted months.
Page Six noted that he filed a request in July for her to take a paternity test. It's not believed that she has, but Tristan said he will 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.
