Tristan Thompson has apologized to ex Khloe Kardashian amid an ongoing paternity lawsuit.
“At the moment, paternity check outcomes reveal that I fathered a baby with Maralee Nichols,” wrote the NBA star on his Instagram Story on Monday, Jan. 3.
Nichols filed a lawsuit towards Thompson in California, saying he’s the daddy of her new child son. In courtroom docs, Thompson has mentioned that they had intercourse on his birthday in March 2021 throughout a “hook up.”
Now, Thompson says, “I take full accountability for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look ahead to amicably elevating our son. I sincerely apologize to everybody I’ve harm or disillusioned all through this ordeal each publicly and privately.”
He went on to particularly acknowledge the “heartache” of his ex, Kardashian, following their breakup final spring.
“Khloe, you do not deserve this,” Thompson wrote. “You do not deserve the heartache and humiliation I’ve precipitated you. You do not deserve the way in which I’ve handled you over time. My actions actually haven’t lined up with the way in which I view you.”
