Tristan Thompson is dealing with plenty of baby mama drama, and rightfully so. 

Maralee Nichols, who has reportedly given birth to the athlete’s third child is sharing her side of the story – and it isn’t looking good for him at all!

The fitness model –  who reportedly welcomed Tristan’s second son earlier this month – has attempted to set the record straight on “fake news”. She’s also clapped back at claims made by Tristan Thompson himself, who has denied having a weeks long affair with the Houston native.


Speaking to E! News, Maralee Nichols hit back at reports about her in the media.

She said in a statement: “I have seen fake stories, unflattering photos of me, people using photos that are not even me, stating an incorrect occupation and age”.

Maralee also hit back at fake Instagram accounts and posts which have fuelled tabloid fodder. She added: “There have been multiple fake Instagram posts claiming to be me, making false statements and attaching stock photos of a sonogram and a child (neither mine).”

And the mom-of-one used the opportunity to share her own version of events. This includes claims she met Tristan Thompson at a party in his Californian home last year.

She continued: “These are the facts: I have lived in California since 2019. I am not a personal trainer and have not worked as a personal trainer for four years; I do fitness modeling.

“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.”

Maralee claimed Tristan Thompson told her he was “not having a sexual relationship with anyone else” during their time together.

She also stated that their relationship was “not casual sex nor did we have any arrangement. Tristan and I communicated daily and talked on the phone. We would see each other several times a month.”

She also revealed the moment their baby was conceived.

“I saw Tristan in March 2021 around his birthday. He told me he had wanted to see me. I agreed to meet him in Houston at a private party on March 12. I never drove a Maserati to meet Tristan, as he claimed. He has never even been in my vehicle. I used an Uber or was driven by friends that weekend. Houston was one of many nights we spent together.”

And of how she broke the news to him, she added: “I told him the news of my pregnancy in person in North Carolina. Despite the challenges that I know I would have as a single mother and Tristan’s reaction to my pregnancy, I told Tristan Thompson I would be having the baby”.

Maralee Nichols also shared a first glimpse of the baby she shares with Tristan Thompson. In the holiday-themed pic, mom and son are seen wearing matching festive pjs whilst cuddling in front of their Christmas tree.

Whilst the unnamed baby’s face can not be seen, Maralee looks glamorous after giving birth just two weeks ago.

She concluded her statement saying: “Instead of focusing on any negativity, I am choosing to embrace being a mother and doing the best I can for my son.

“I do not want any further media attention, nor do I want a romantic relationship with Tristan Thompson”.
