Khloe Kardashian’s on-off boyfriend Tristan Thompson has allegedly filed ‘an emergency petition’ asking for a gag order in a case against new mum Maralee Nichols
Tristan Thompson is allegedly attempting to silence the woman who has allegedly given birth to his third child.
In a lawsuit which will bring fresh heartbreak to the Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s sister Khloe, Tristan is alleged to have fathered a child with personal trainer Maralee Nichols.
The 30-year-old NBA player – who shares three-year-old daughter True with Khloe – has now allegedly filed ‘an emergency petition’ in Harris County, Texas, asking the judge to issue a gag order in the case against new mum Maralee.
The new legal order means that all parties involved – himself and Maralee, 31, – are banned from discussing any details from the case as it continues to unfold in court.
In legal documents obtained by TMZ, Tristan has claimed that Maralee has ‘conducted interviews’ and ‘leaked personal information’ about him on social media in a bid to spread ‘falsehoods’ about the situation.
The basketball star also allegedly claimed that Snapchat messages which he had sent to Maralee had been ‘fabricated.’
It has been claimed that Tristan also wants a judge to ensure that Maralee can hand over a $30,000 bond.
This is to ensure she has the sufficient funds if she breaks the confidentiality order.
It comes after new mum Maralee claims she conceived the baby on Tristan’s 30th birthday – when he was still dating Good American founder Khloe.
In official court documents, published by Mail Online, Tristan allegedly admitted to having sex with Maralee several times at a hotel after partying together.
In the documents, the sports star allegedly detailed how Maralee drove him to an event on the night of Tristan’s 30th birthday, before the pair returned to his hotel where she had ‘a special birthday surprise’ waiting for him.
“When we got to my hotel room, we immediately had sexual intercourse,” Tristan said in the documents.
“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.”
Although Tristan claims the pair had a one-off fling, Maralee’s lawyers have argued the pair were together multiple times prior to the conception.
They claim the Texas native “traveled to California on multiple occasions” and continued to see the father of two “after she got pregnant.”
NBA player Tristan already has son Prince, four, with ex Jordan Craig, and daughter True, with Khloe.
Khloe, 37, has made no secret about wanting her own sibling for daughter True.
Throughout the lawsuit, Khloe has remained silent amid her fresh heartbreak, but on Wednesday, she broke her silence to thank fans for their support.
Speaking for the first time since the latest cheating allegations emerged, Khloe tweeted: “I love you. Thank you,” with a heart and a kiss emoji.
Concerned followers of the Good American mogul immediately jumped on the post and rushed to send Khloe their best wishes – as well as some stern advice.
“You seriously deserve a better man. Don’t feel sorry for True, she will understand your decision when she grew up,” one replied.
Another said: “Don’t forgive him, let him go.”
While a third wrote: “Please be cautious Khloe, we don’t want to see you having another heartbreak.”
Khloe has been in a dramatic romance with the Cleveland Cavaliers player since 2016 – with plenty of drama surrounding the five-year relationship – including more cheating scandals, and which included Kylie Jenners former best friend, Jordyn Woods.
