Maralee Nichols wants child support, but a large sum of it every single month.
The 31-year-old fitness model filed paperwork against Tristan Thompson earlier in the month for a 3-month-old child she shares with Tristan Thompson, and the amount has just been revealed, via Us Weekly.
“With regard to child support, using Tristan’s income of $9.7 million alone and Maralee’s income of $0, Maralee at this time requests guideline monthly child support of $47,424,” court documents declare.
She also asked that Tristan be ordered to pay her attorney fees, which exceed $1 million.
The filing estimates Tristan’s monthly income to be at least $810,075 while she claims that her expenses are $22,263 per month, adding, “Theo and I are living at a far depressed standard of living than Tristan.”
The former personal trainer alleged that before she gave birth, she spent more than $2,000 per month dining out and “expects these expenses will resume once Theo gets older and COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.” She also claimed that she spends $3,500 per month on clothes, explaining, “I have made a tremendous effort to reduce my spending. Previously, my average month’s expenses for clothing were in excess of $5,000 a month.”
Nichols went on to claim that she is living in an apartment with a roommate, while Thompson allegedly has not paid her any money yet and has a “lavish celebrity lifestyle.”
The athlete confirmed in January that he is the child’s father.
“I take full responsibility for my actions,” he wrote via his Instagram Story at the time. “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.”
