Tristan Thompson attempted to pay Maralee Nichols $75,000 to abort their unborn son last year. Instead, she packed her bags and moved to California. Her son was born there on December 1.
Now a California judge has ordered Tristan to pay Nichols $40,000 a month in temporary support for the newborn.
The child support amount is based on Tristan's NBA salary of nearly $10 million in 2021. The judge also reviewed Maralee Nichols' bank records and determined she needed the extra support.
The judge considered the other child support payments Tristan is paying to Khloe Kardashian, the mother of his 3-year-old daughter, True, and Jordan Craig, mother of his son Prince, 4.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tristan is paying $40k per month for his son, and $34k per month for his daughter, based on Khloe's net worth of $50 million.
With all three child support payments combined, Tristan is paying over $1 million a year. The 6'-9" Sacramento Kings forward has earned over $116 million since he was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2011.
