A representative for Maralee Nichols said that she was always sure that the NBA player was her son’s father.
Maralee Nichols spoke out shortly after Tristan Thompson admitted that a paternity test showed that he was the father of her newborn son on Tuesday January 4. A spokesperson for Maralee told E! News that she would keep his past statements about their relationship in mind, following his admission in an Instagram Story.
The representative noted the very public legal battle that both Tristan and Maralee were engaged in after she filed a paternity lawsuit against him. “There was never any doubt that Tristan Thompson was the father of Maralee Nichols’ baby. Tristan made numerous false and defamatory statements and declarations about Maralee over the past few months, and she is taking his contrite statement today in the context of all of those statements.
