Tristan Thompson is now admitting he had been hooking up with Maralee Nichols, the personal trainer who gave birth to the NBA star’s alleged third child earlier this month. He had been doing so for months while communicating secretly through Snapchat under the username “blkjesus00.”
“[Maralee] told me that she had been involved with other athletes and understood the limitations of our relationship; to-wit, that we might see each other on a sporadic basis for consensual casual sex only,” Tristan, 30, admitted in a declaration filed on December 8, obtained by the Daily Mail.
According to Page Six:
“Tristan Thompson revealed his secret Snapchat username, “blkjesus00,” in court documents about his sexual relationship with the personal trainer who claims he fathered her baby.
The Sacramento Kings player, 30, admitted in a declaration filed on Dec. 8 and obtained by the Daily Mail that he used the social media account to discreetly arrange hookups with Maralee Nichols while dating Khloé Kardashian.
“We never had any telephone calls, emails, nor did we exchange text messages. We only communicated via the Snapchat application,” Thompson said in the filing.
“My username on Snapchat has always been ‘blkjesus00.’ We used Snapchat to communicate to protect our privacy,” he continued, noting that the app “automatically” deletes messages after they are read.”
Maralee claims that the two met in California and were hooking up, on and off, for five months before she became pregnant. She further claims that Tristan offered her $75,000 in hush money and to receive an abortion.
As you may know, she provided all types of receipts to prove her claims.
“You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. [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. 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,” the alleged Snapchat communication, obtained by Page Six, read. “So you better off taking this 75K I’m offering cause you won’t get nothing near that with having a kid with a father who’s unemployed. All you will have is a baby with a father who has zero involvement with the child and a few hundred dollars of child support a month.”
Tristan denies sending the message in his declaration, adding that he “strongly [contends] these messages have been fabricated” by Maralee.
Khloe Kardashian was listed as Tristan’s “ex-girlfriend” in the child support lawsuit.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
