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.

Tristan Thompson hopes to impregnate his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Khloe Kardashian, if she takes him back. The couple share 3-year-old daughter, True Thompson.

MTO News spoke with a source close to the Kardashian Kamp who insist Tristan is begging Khloe to forgive him after he dropped a baby in another woman.

According to MTO:

"Our snitch tells us that Tristan is even promising to get Khloe pregnant again, if she takes him back.

"Tristan told Khloe that if she takes him back they can have more babies and build on their family. He was reluctant to have any more kids with Khloe before this [cheating incident] happened."

They will have to hurry because Khloe's eggs are past the 35-year expiration date.

It isn't clear if Khloe, 37, is speaking to Tristan after a DNA test confirmed he fathered a baby boy with fitness trainer Maralee Nichols.

Last week Khloe took to her Instagram Story to share an emotional message about surviving difficult times.

"There's going to be very painful moments in your life that will change your entire world in a matter of minutes. These moments will change YOU. Let them make you stronger, smarter and kinder. But don't you go and become someone that your not. Cry. Scream if you have to. Then you straighten out that and keep it moving [sic]."

A DNA test has removed all doubt that Tristan Thompson is the father of Houston fitness trainer Maralee Nichols' baby boy.

Tristan immediately took responsibility for his promiscuous behavior after receiving the test results.

In an Instagram post, he confirmed he fathered the boy -- born on December 1.

"Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols," he wrote. The 30-year-old NBA star apologized to his long-suffering baby mama, Khloe Kardashian, 37.

"You don't deserve this," he told Khloe, who looked unbothered as she left a Kardashian family Christmas photo shoot last month.

"Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions.

"Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologize to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately."

Tristan is the father of Khloe's only child, a 3-year-old daughter named True Thompson. Khloe is pictured leaving her daughter's dance class with BFF Malika Haqq and her son, Ace.

Nichols, 31, filed for child support after moving from Houston to California, where she gave birth.

Her attorney felt vindicated. "There was never any doubt that Tristan Thompson was the father of Maralee Nichols' baby," attorney Harvey Englander told DailyMail.com in a statement.

"Tristan made numerous false and defamatory statements and declarations about Maralee over the past few months, and she is taking his contrite statement today in the context of all of those statements."

The baby makes three children by three women for the promiscuous athlete. Tristan fathered a son, Prince, with his ex-girlfriend and Instagram model, Jordan Craig, in 2016.

Khloe, 37, and Tristan, 30, began dating in 2016 while his then-girlfriend, model Jordan Craig was pregnant with his son Prince.

In August 2016 Tristan and Khloe made their first appearance as a couple -- and the blogs ate them up.

BACKGRID

In April 2018, Khloe and Tristan welcomed their first child, a daughter named True Thompson. The cheating rumors began shortly before True started teething.

"He wants to have, like, five or six kids with me, and that's lovely," Khloe said on the season 13 finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. "We could start at one and then grow from there. But now, knowing I'm on birth control, it's really scary. It's like a really big step."

But Khloe was only kidding herself. While she dreamed of a big family with Tristan, he slept with her sister Kylie Jenner's former assistant, Jordyn Woods.

In 2019 Khloe and Tristan called it quits. By August 2020 they were back together -- only to call it quits again in June 2021.

Maralee Nichols shared the first photo of her newborn son. The fitness model claims the baby was fathered by NBA star Tristan Thompson.

In the photo obtained by Page Six, Maralee cradles her newborn son in front of a festive Christmas tree. Both mother and son are wearing matching Grinch pajamas. The baby's face is not seen in the photo.

The 31-year-old fitness model filed a paternity suit against Tristan earlier this year, claiming he fathered her then-unborn baby.

But Tristan hit back, demanding a DNA test after the child was born, but Maralee has not complied.

A counter-lawsuit he filed in Houston -- where the child was allegedly conceived -- was thrown out by a judge.

The judge stated the suit should be heard in Los Angeles, California where Maralee and her son reside.

At the time of his hookup with Maralee, Tristan was in an on-again, off-again relationship with socialite Khloe Kardashian, 37, the mother of his 3-year-old daughter, True Thompson.

Maralee and Tristan appeared via a Zoom hearing on Dec. 8, where Tristan confessed his Snapchat username was "blkejesus00" and that he used the app to arrange a "hook up" with Maralee.

"We never had any telephone calls, emails, nor did we exchange text messages. We only communicated via the Snapchat application," Tristan said.

He said he used the app to arrange meetings with women because it automatically deleted their communications.

"I only recall that [Nichols] and I had sexual relations in March of 2021 and at no other time in 2021," the Sacramento Kings star said. "[Nichols] constantly used the term 'hook up' to describe our relationship which was the reality."

Tristan, 30, also accused Maralee of having a sexually transmitted disease.

He claims Maralee scheduled a labor induction on December 1, due to "medical reasons." He said herpes was the reason behind the induced labor and he believes that his own health might be at risk.

"Since opening up our private files to the media, I have been contacted by a source confirming that I should be checked because Petitioner has been diagnosed with herpes," he said. "Therefore, it would make sense that Petitioner had to have a designated delivery date."

Maralee issued a statement to Page Six, saying:

"Instead of focusing on any negativity, I am choosing to embrace being a mother and doing the best I can for my son. I do not want any further media attention, nor do I want a romantic relationship with Tristan.

"My goal is to raise our son in a safe, healthy, loving and private environment."

Moving trucks were seen outside Khloe's Hidden Hills estate, where Tristan had been laying his head until Maralee Nichols' paternity suit went public.

The moving trucks were presumably there to remove Tristan's belongings after Khloe threw him out (again).

Kylie, 23, already has 3-year-old daughter Stormi, who will become a big sister to a little brother or sister.

TMZ reports Kylie and troubled rapper Travis "are very much a couple" -- despite a recent report from W Magazine that stated otherwise.

W magazine scrapped a planned cover story of the couple following his Astroworld disaster.

"W editors have cleared any planned coverage of Travis and Kylie from their website, but the magazine was already printed, and now they are trying to stop the delivery trucks," an insider told Page Six after the event.

Unlike her secret surrogate pregnancy with Stormi, Kylie has been more transparent this time around, sharing multiple photos of her baby bump on social media.

TMZ predicts baby Webster could arrive before the end of the year.

Tristan Thompson is expecting a baby with a Texas personal trainer, DailyMail.com reports.

The NBA star already has son Prince, 4, with ex-girlfriend and Instagram model Jordan Craig, and daughter True Thompson with ex-girlfriend and IG model Khloe Kardashian, 37.

DailyMail.com posted exclusive photos of heavily pregnant Maralee Nichols, 31, of Houston, Texas, who filed a paternity suit against Thompson.

Nichols is due to give birth to their son on December 3, according to the Mail.

In his response to the suit, the 30-year-old Sacramento Kings star insisted he and Nichols had sexual intercourse only twice in Texas, and he is demanding the case be moved to Texas instead of California.

According to Thompson, the baby was conceived in a Houston hotel room, and the case should be heard in the state, where judges are more conservative.

Thompson readily acknowledges he had sex with Nichols after they attended his 30th birthday bash in Houston in March.

He said she drove him to the event in her Maserati sportscar before returning to his hotel where she had "a special birthday surprise" for him -- meaning sex.

ROGER / BACKGRID

Thompson claims that night was the only time he was intimate with Nichols. In court papers he suggested she entrapped him.

"When we got to my hotel room, we immediately had sexual intercourse. Petitioner [Nichols] initiated our sexual contact and never objected to our having sexual intercourse. She was very awake and conscious and did not exhibit any signs that she was other than a willing participant in our sexual activities.

"We did not drink at my hotel room and Petitioner was not drunk. After we had sexual intercourse, Petitioner specifically asked me if she could spend the night because it was my 'special birthday' as she called it.

"I told her I had to get up early in the morning but she said it would not be an issue for her. After we had sexual intercourse, we went to bed."

He confessed they had sex again before the sun came up.

At the time, the Canadian basketball star was still dating ex-girlfriend Khloe, who believed he had changed his ways.

Tristan Thompson surprised his Instagram followers by sharing photos of his firstborn child, 4-year-old Prince, playing with his 3-year-old daughter, True, at a penny arcade.

Tristan, who shares True with reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, captioned the photos: "Let me love you a little more, before you are not so little anymore #MyEverything."

The 30-year-old NBA star had Prince with ex-girlfriend and Instagram model Jordan Craig, a cousin of Eniko Parrish, who is married to comedian Kevin Hart.

Tristan was dating Khloe at the time Jordan gave birth to Prince. His relationship with Khloe caused a scandal at the time.

Both Tristan and Khloe denied the cheating allegations and claim they met after Tristan and Jordan broke up.

Khloe tried to prove her case on social media in 2019:

"He had me talk with his most inner circle. He showed me physical proof (text messages) and had me on calls with his lawyers to prove his point. His best friends, business associates and even his mother told me, him and his ex were broken up before we met."

Still, Khloe apologized for any mistrust that Jordan may harbor toward all men.

"I'm sorry for any pain that has been created either way. No woman deserves to go through anything like this!"

Seven months after Stormi's arrival, Kylie wrote: "I do want to have more - when, is the question."

According to rumormongers, Kylie didn't carry Stormi because she never provided definitive proof throughout her first "pregnancy."

Rumor has it that Khloe, 37, was never pregnant with daughter True Thompson.

We know that Kim, 40, gave birth to daughter North West and son Saint, before hiring a surrogate to carry daughter Chicago and son Psalm, due to health concerns.

The estimated cost of a surrogate ranges between $30,000 and $175,000. The price doesn't include the in-vitro fertilization procedure, which isn't covered by insurance.
