Representatives and lawyers for Nichols and Thompson were not immediately available when contacted by Page Six for comment.
The news comes the same day it was reported that the basketball player, 30, appeared to be threatening his alleged little mother, 31, to drop his paternity lawsuit against him in exchange for $ 75,000.
In a text message allegedly sent to Nichols, obtained by Page Six in a legal file, Thompson allegedly told him that she would receive much less money if he was ordered to pay child support under Texas law. .
“You know I’m retiring after this season,” the text read, saying he plans to leave the NBA in 2022.
“So in terms of support, that will be all that is required on a monthly basis for an unemployed person. It’s in Texas so it’s only going to be a few hundred dollars. So you better take these 75k I’m giving you because you won’t have anything quite as close to having a child with an unemployed dad.
Nichols’ attorney argued in the case that Thompson deliberately filed his lawsuit in Texas to “save” money on potential child support payments. During this time, Nichols moved from Houston to California, where his child was born. According to the record, Texas law would not have jurisdiction over the child support decision.
Thompson – who shares daughter True, 3, with ex Khloé Kardashian and son Prince, 4, with ex Jordan Craig – reportedly ended his text to Nichols by saying his child support deposit would allow him , at best, to raise “a baby with a father who has no involvement with the child and a few hundred dollars in child support a month.”
The baby was reportedly conceived on Thompson’s 30th birthday in March, when he and Kardashian, 37, were still dating.
According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Nichols claims that Thompson wanted her to have an abortion.
“It is also apparent from the context and substance of these communications that they are from Tristan to Maralee, reflecting that Tristan is addressing the relationship of the parties, and even regarding her pregnancy, insisting that she have an abortion.” and threatening to get next to nothing with less support requirements in Texas, ”the documents say.
The document states that Thompson denied sending any of the messages, but also claims that “his contact details are in the messages.”
In a statement, Thompson managed to have sex with Nichols on several occasions in a hotel after the couple attended a party together.
He then filed an application, obtained by Page Six, demanding that she pass a paternity test in July. By November 15, she had not taken a test. Still, Thompson said in a subsequent filing that he would pay child support if she was able to confirm he was the father.
