Tristan Thompson has apologised to Khloé Kardashian after a paternity test proved that Tristan has fathered a son with personal trainer Maralee Nichols while still in a relationship with Khloé.
Basketball player Tristan, who reportedly split from Khloé in June 2021, seemingly confirmed his infidelity to the Kardashian in his Instagram Stories post.
“Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols,” he wrote.
“I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son.
“I sincerely apologise to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”
He continued: “Khloé, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you.
“I have the upmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”

Since the results were confirmed, there’s been no word as yet from the Kardashian camp, but after reports of the paternity court case were revealed in December, People magazine reported that Khloé was “upset” to find out that Tristan had cheated again, since they were together in March when the baby was conceived.
Tristan Thompson and Khloé Kardashian first started dating in 2016 and welcomed their daughter True Thompson in 2018. Thompson is also the father of a four-year-old son, Prince, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
