Maralee Nichols has spoken out about her paternity issues with Tristan Thompson.
“Over the past couple of weeks, many inaccurate and false stories have been circulated about me. I have not at any point released – nor have I directed anyone else to release – any information regarding Tristan Thompson or any litigation involving him. I have never spoken to any media outlet, nor have I leaked any information to anyone at any time. I am providing this statement because I feel I must defend my character,” she said in a statement.
Maralee claims Tristan is the father of her newborn son. Texts were leaked showing Tristan trying to force her to have an abortion.
“He told me he was single and co-parenting. I would never have gotten involved with Tristan if I thought he was in a relationship,” she continued. She says she was more than “casual sex” and that they talked daily on the phone.
“I told him the news of my pregnancy in person in North Carolina,” she wrote. “Despite the challenges that I know I would have as a single mother and Tristan’s reaction to my pregnancy, I told Tristan I would be having the baby. Tristan has not helped me financially with my pregnancy or with our baby; I have paid 100% for my son’s expenses. I did not ask Tristan for any money, nor did I accept any money that was offered to me.”
