Tristan Thompson's 'Threatening' Text Messages To Woman Allegedly Carrying His Baby Revealed In Child Support Lawsuit Documents
New details regarding the paternity lawsuit filed by Tristan Thompson have been revealed.
On Friday, December 3, news broke that the NBA star is allegedly expecting a baby with his third baby mama Maralee Nichols — who filed a child support lawsuit against him in June.
The 30-year-old athlete demanded in a July filing that the case be heard in Texas — where Nichols recently moved from and where the child was allegedly conceived — instead of California (potentially in the hopes of having to pay less in child support).
According to docs filed in October, Thompson requested to have a paternity test done once the child is born in December.
In response to Thompson’s filings, Nichols reportedly blasted the basketball player’s request to have the case handled in Texas, with her name-dropping his other two baby mamas — Khloé Kardashian and Jordan Craig — who currently reside in California.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, she accused Thompson of trying to save money on child support by having the case heard in Texas — and she has the receipts to prove it.
Nichols is now asking the judge that she be allowed to include "numerous electronic messages" from Thompson in the lawsuit, although the basketball star is alleging he never sent them in the first place, it was reported.
The text messages Nichols provided read, “You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. 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," the texts continued. "It’s Texas so it will be only a couple hundred dollars.”

“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,” Thompson reportedly added.
In her filing, Nichols' attorneys insisted, "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."
She claimed, per the outlet: "Tristan’s far-flung claim that he did not author these electronic communications from his account (presumably meaning that his account or cell phone was hijacked or hacked)" should not bar the evidence from being used in court.
According to the outlet, there has not yet been a decision made regarding child support. A hearing for Thompson’s suit is set to take place in April, while Nichols' case is still pending in California.
Meanwhile, fans of Kardashian — who gave birth to the former pair’s 3-year-old daughter True in 2018 — can’t help but notice the timeline of Nichols' pregnancy.
In the court documents,Thompson admitted to having intercourse with Nichols while celebrating his 30th birthday back in March — when he was reportedly still dating the reality star.
The Good American cofounder has been on-and-off with Thompson ever since he was caught up in multiple cheating scandals throughout the bumpy years of their relationship. Kardashian seemingly called things off with her baby daddy back in July, shortly after revealing she wanted to have a second child with her former flame.
It is still unclear whether Kardashian was aware of Thompson's relations with Nichols, but her fans are hoping she'll now be done with Thompson for good.
