According to Maralee Nichols, the woman who claims to be pregnant with Tristan Thompson's baby and about to give birth-- the baller threatened her to keep her mouth closed and even tried to buy her off.
In the texts he allegedly sent, he tells her to drop the child support case and lets her know that he's retiring soon and will be unemployed.
"You know how I feel. My feelings haven't changed at all. Wont be involved at all. Btw 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," he allegedly wrote to Nichols.
"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."
He really doesn't want anybody to know.
