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]."

Rapper Joey BADA$$ (left) returned to Twitter after a long hiatus to spark controversy with his first tweet.

Joey weighed in on Tristan Thompson's paternity drama after the 30-year-old NBA star confessed to fathering a child with a fitness trainer.

The baby boy, who was born in Dec. 1, is Tristan's 3rd child by three women (that we know of).

Joey, who last tweeted on Nov. 13, called Tristan a gyalis -- a Jamaican patois term for a player or a man who enjoys more than one female partner at a time.

Joey tweeted:

"Tristian Thompson gotta stop being a sorry ass n***a. Tell Khloe you're a f****** gyalist and you need more than one woman. Straight up. Whats so hard about being honest with our women fellas? F*** this western bulls**t. Relationships should be expansive and beneficial for all [sic]."

Joey followed up his tweet by explaining that men should be honest with women about their true nature.

"Most of us have been in polyamorous relationships our whole lives. The only difference is we weren't honest about it. But if you've ever been sexually involved with someone non-exclusively, guess what, you're polyamorous."

Joey is right: men are naturally polygamous. It's in the Bible that men should be fruitful and multiply. But that doesn't fly in today's female-dominated society.

Joey's female followers were mostly in disagreement.

"Jessica" wrote:

"Loud and WRONG! Polyamory - means many loves. You're not in a polyamorus relationship if you are not honest you're simply a cheater.

You're only in a polyamorus relationship if all partners are consenting and intentional in the relationships."

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.

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."

A Texas judge has dismissed a paternity lawsuit filed by Tristan Thompson against Maralee Nichols -- which he filed in response to her lawsuit against him in California.

A source told Us Weekly magazine that both Thompson, 30, and Nichols, 31, testified via a virtual hearing on Wednesday, Dec. 15. Page Six reported that the case was sealed online after the Sacramento Kings star sought a gag order against Nichols.

Nichols claims she gave birth to Thompson's son in December 2021 following a torrid 5-month relationship with the NBA star.

"Regardless of whether any act of conception occurred in Texas that could have led to the conception of the child, [Thompson and Nichols allegedly] had a lengthy relationship spanning multiple states," Us Weekly's source said.

However, Thompson, through his attorneys, disputes the timeline. Thompson claims he had sexual intercourse with Nichols twice on his birthday -- March 13 -- in a Houston hotel room.

He asked the court to move Nichols' suit from California to Houston, where she owns property.

But the judge dismissed his suit and said the case should be heard in California where Nichols allegedly birthed the child and where she currently resides.

Thompson has demanded a paternity test, but Nichols has yet to comply. She filed for child support earlier this year, before the baby was allegedly born.

Internet sleuths claim Tristan Thompson's alleged 3rd baby mama, Maralee Nichols, stole her newborn baby photo from a well-known Los Angeles newborn photographer.

Nichols made headlines last week after the DailyMail.com reported she was pregnant with the NBA star's 3rd child.

Nichols, a personal trainer, moved from Houston, Texas to Los Angeles and filed a paternity suit for child support before the child was even born.

The Mail dropped its exclusive report on the day Nichols allegedly delivered her son in a L.A. hospital on Friday, Dec. 3.

The very same day, Nichols shared a professional studio shot of a newborn baby she claimed was her son.

Nichols captioned the photo: "First came love, then came you Angelou Kash Thompson."

Nichols turned off the comments under the post after Internet sleuths uncovered a very similar photo taken by Matt Cramer Photography in January 2020. The images are nearly identical.

New parents on Instagram say the Cramers are booked solid. So how did Nichols manage to snag an opening in their busy schedule on the same day she gave birth?

Now Tristan's fans wonder if Nichols was really pregnant at all -- or whether her pregnancy is an elaborate hoax to squeeze money out of a promiscuous athlete.

Was she wearing a prosthetic baby bump?

By the way, Tristan is demanding a paternity test and he asked a judge to move Nichols' paternity suit from Los Angeles to Texas where the alleged child was conceived in a hotel room.

In text messages obtained by Page Six and Us Weekly, Tristan, who was dating his ex, Khloe Kardashian at the time, allegedly threatened to retire from the NBA next year and offered Nichols $75,000 to get an abortion.

He also allegedly told Nichols he wouldn't be involved in the child's life at all.

"You know how I feel. My feelings haven't changed at all. [I] 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."

Tristan, 30, is already paying child support to ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig for son Prince, 4, and Khloe's daughter True Thompson, 3.

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."

Khloe, 37, added in the comments: "They are so beautiful and sweet!!!! So so blessed!!! What angels!"

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!"
