Tristan Thompson has made a public apology to Khloe Kardashian after paternity test results proved he is the father of Maralee Nichols’ child.
Basketball player Tristan, 30, was hit by claims he had fathered a third child with personal trainer Maralee in December, which he remained silent on.
He is also a dad to daughter True, whom he shares with Khloe, 37, and son Prince, whom he shares with his model ex Jordan Craig.
But now, after receiving the paternity test results for his alleged child with Maralee, he has spoken out.
Tristan Thompson has spoken out after receiving paternity test results.
Writing in an Instagram story, Tristan said: “Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols.
“I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son.”
He then added: “I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”
In another post, Tristan spoke directly to his ex-girlfriend Khloe as he wrote: “Khloe, 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 loved up with the way I view you.
“I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
Meanwhile, Khloe is yet to acknowledge Tristan’s statement.
Tristan conceived the baby while he was visiting the city to celebrate his 30th birthday in March – during the time he was back together with Khloe.
