These days, Tristan Thompson is better known for his cheating scandals than for his career as an NBA player. Throughout his on-and-off relationship with Khloé Kardashian, tons of drama came to light that only hurt his reputation in the public eye.
With all the unfavorable opinions about the Sacramento Kings power forward, some fans are wondering: How many kids does Tristan Thompson have in total? Who are his baby mamas? Read on to get your answer.
Tristan Thompson has two sons and a daughter with three baby mamas.
Tristan is a rolling stone! The athlete welcomed son Prince Oliver (born on Dec. 12, 2016) with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig, an influencer, lifestyle blogger, and businesswoman. She is the CEO of the brand What Jordy Wore and appears to enjoy life outside of the spotlight.
Per The Sun, Tristan and Jordan broke up some time in 2016. However, Tristan started seeing Khloé in August of that year. And while he has been adamant that he was single when he started dating the Good American founder, many fans are not convinced — especially since he has a reputation of being a liar.
The athlete then welcomed daughter True (born April 12, 2018) with on-and-off partner Khloé. During the last season of Keeping up With the Kardashians, the pair revealed that they were looking forward to possibly having more children together. But in light of recent events, there’s no telling if that plan will come into fruition.
Tristan revealed in his Instagram stories on Jan. 3, 2021, that paternity tests showed he was also the father of a son (born on Dec. 1, 2021) with his former personal trainer Maralee Nichols.
Tristan had reportedly still been romantically involved with Khloé at the time he and Maralee conceived.
The baller explained in his Instagram stories that he took full responsibility for his actions and looked forward to co-parenting his son with Maralee. He added: "I sincerely apologize to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal, both publicly and privately."
Tristan and Maralee's baby's name was revealed in February 2022.
Tristan and Maralee's baby's name, according to a birth certificate obtained by People, is Theo Thompson.
"Theo, my little angel baby. I named you Theo because it means, 'Gift from God,'" Maralee said in a statement to the publication. "I had never been pregnant and had been told I might not be able to have children. I couldn't believe I was pregnant, when I saw you on the ultrasound and heard your little heartbeat I knew I would always protect you and keep you safe. I love you more than you'll ever know. You bring such joy and happiness into my life. My greatest blessing."
In February 2022, a representative for Maralee Nichols claimed that Tristan had done nothing to support their son.
According to Page Six, it appears that Tristan reneged on his promise to take care of his son with Maralee Nichols.
“Despite news reports stating otherwise, Tristan Thompson has done nothing to support his son,” Maralee's rep, Harvey Englander, said in a statement to the outlet on Feb. 14, 2022. “He has not made any attempt to meet their son nor has he provided any financial assistance.”
Reports suggest that Tristan may have to dish out $40,000 in child support to all three of his baby mamas.
According to Us Weekly, Maralee filed a lawsuit against the baller for child support in early December 2021.
Per court documents obtained by the outlet, Tristan admitted to engaging in sexual contact with Maralee on multiple occasions. Plus, in July 2021, he ordered a paternity test before filing an amended petition in a Texas court in November 2021.
In December 2021, Page Six reported that Tristan had threatened Maralee via text message over her child support lawsuit. In messages obtained by the outlet, the NBA player reportedly urged Maralee to take the $75,000 he offered her, saying she’d get way less under Texas law.
“You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all,” Tristan said in the text message. “I won’t be involved at all. By the way, if you think having this baby is gonna make you some money, it’s completely wrong.”
The message continued, “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. It’s Texas so it will be only a couple hundred dollars. So, you’re better off taking this $75,000 I’m offering because you won’t get anything near that with having a kid with a father who’s unemployed.”
Tristan he has yet to speak out about the latest claims Maralee made about him not supporting their son. With so much backlash he's faced in the past, it's likely that the baller won't respond. So, we'll just have to wait and see how things pan out.
