Tristan Thompson Accuses Maralee Nichols Of Attempting To 'Gain Fame' Through Lawsuit



The 30-year-old NBA star is unhappy with how Maralee Nichols has constantly been putting their parental lawsuit in the spotlight and denies ever sending the Snapchat messages to her. Thompson has filed to the court and accused that Nichols' "intention all along [was] to try to achieve some sort of notoriety and gain for herself in this lawsuit.”

He has also requested an emergency request for a gag order on Maralee Nichols to prevent her from sharing too much with the public regarding the case.

The court documents that were filed to Harris County, Texas, declare that the false claims made by Nichols were an “attempt to smear” and are mostly not true. He admits to having intercourse with the woman twice on his birthday after she told him she has a "special surprise" prepared back at the hotel he stays at.

The personal information in the court documents also leaked because, according to Thompson, Nichols had “alerted the media” about it.

Hence, he has filed a full gag request to stop Nichols from continuing to leak and talk about their parental lawsuit. It includes her posting a $30,000 bond in case it's broken, and on top of that, he demands Nichols pays for the fee of him filing for the request.

According to Nichols files, the baby was conceived on the night of Thompson's birthday event during the time when he was still with ex-girlfriend Khloé Kardashian.


Nichols filed for child support as well as the medical fees that come with delivering the baby at the hospital and other parenting costs. While Thompson doesn't deny this, he demands a paternity test to be done to ensure that it is, indeed, his baby.

Thompson later added that he's willing to pay for child support for the baby if it is indeed his.

Nichols filed a text message that was allegedly from Thompson who asked her to abort the baby with $75k, saying that “that she will get next to nothing with lesser support requirements in Texas.” He also revealed that he's retiring in the next season, which means he'll be considered an unemployed man in the court.
