Tristan Thompson sought and seemingly received a gag order on Maralee Nichols this week. Maralee sued him for child support, and provided the court with texts and emails where Tristan encouraged her to seek an abortion and told her he would only give her $75K for the baby, and that he was quitting the NBA after this season so she wouldn’t get any more money from him. He also asked for a DNA test. Maralee gave birth (I think) to a boy about a week ago, and it’s generally believed that the paternity test would be done this week or soon. So that’s why he got a gag order:
Tristan Thompson’s paternity lawsuit filed in Texas with Maralee Nichols has been sealed. The online filing, seen by Page Six on Thursday morning, is no longer searchable and states the records are “currently CONFIDENTIAL or this case has been SEALED.”
The change in accessibility comes just days after the Sacramento Kings player requested a gag order to prevent his personal trainer from further engaging with the media. Attorneys for Thompson and Nichols didn’t immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment.
In the gag order request, obtained by Page Six, Thompson claimed Nichols’ “intention all along [was] to try to achieve some sort of notoriety and gain for herself in this lawsuit” accusing him of fathering a third child. Thompson further alleged in his filing that he suffered “damages and extreme distress.” He requested the court hold an emergency hearing for the gag order and also wanted Nichols to post a $30,000 bond to “deter” her from violating the order.

I still don’t understand why this is being done in Texas? The child was allegedly conceived in Texas, but both Maralee and Tristan live (mainly) in California. Tristan is trying to go through the Texas courts because he thinks they’ll be more anti-woman. He seems to be right. He’s truly asking his side-chick baby-mama to post a bond to ensure her silence. WTF.
Meanwhile, Khloe Kardashian keeps centering herself in this story. People Magazine ran articles all week about how Khloe was “upset” to learn that Tristan cheated on yet again, and explaining why she kept taking him back (“he’s changed!”). Khloe complained about how she’s “barely in her own body right now” as well. Well, now Khloe wants everyone to know that she’s finding the strength to move on from the guy she broke up with in June.
Khloé Kardashian is “moving on” from ex Tristan Thompson, a source tells PEOPLE amid the new drama regarding his alleged infidelity. Thompson, 30, is currently being sued by Maralee Nichols for child support and pregnancy-related fees after she said they conceived a child together in March, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE. Nichols gave birth to the baby boy last week, her rep told PEOPLE.
“Khloé is moving on,” the source says. “Tristan and Khloé have been broken up for a while, and things are okay between them.”
The insider adds that the former couple is “focused on co-parenting True,” their 3-year-old daughter. (Thompson also shares son Prince, 4, with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig).
I sincerely hope she’s moved on before now, given his wall-to-wall infidelities and given the fact that (again) they’ve been over since June. If anything, this makes me wonder if Khloe was still trying to be with Tristan since their breakup. Ugh.
