Tristan Thompson has requested a judge for an emergency gag order in the ongoing paternity suit involving his latest baby mama, Marilee Nichols.
The NBA star filed a petition in Harris County, Texas, on Tuesday, December 7, requesting a gag order that would prevent him and the personal trainer from speaking publicly about the case.
Thompson, 30, claimed that Nichols violated a confidentiality agreement that a judge put in place orally earlier in the proceedings.
Last week, it was revealed that Nichols filed a paternity suit against Tristan Thompson back in June. The fitness instructor claimed that she and the Sacramento Kings center conceived a child in March when he was in town for his 30th birthday. She welcomed the baby, a boy on Thursday, December 2.
In his own court filing in July, the professional athlete acknowledged that the pair had sex multiple times. Later documents included alleged text messages from Thompson in which he claimed that he would be retiring at the end of the NBA season in 2022.
“You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. [I] won’t 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,” the athlete allegedly wrote.
At the time of Tristan and Marilee’s March tryst, he was still in a relationship with Khloé Kardashian, with whom he shares 3-year-old daughter True. The former Cleveland Cavaliers team member and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum, 37, called it quits in June after dating off and on for nearly five years.
