Khloe Kardashian’s NBA star ex Tristan Thompson has conceded that his ‘hook up’ with alleged baby mama number three was actually a months-long series of hotel sex sessions, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
The philandering Sacramento Kings center had previously admitted to sleeping with his former personal trainer Maralee Nichols, 31, although the paternity of the little boy she gave birth to on December 1 is yet to be established.
But while Thompson said they had sex several times at his 30th birthday celebrations in March – around the time he was also publicly dating Khloe – he’s now conceding that the pair had been meeting up for months.
In court documents obtained by DailyMail.com, Thompson said he communicated with Nichols via Snapchat under the username ‘blkjesus00,’ only discussing when and where they would meet up for sex.

The philandering Sacramento Kings center had previously admitted to sleeping with his former personal trainer Maralee Nichols, 31, (pictured just before giving birth) although the paternity of the little boy she gave birth to earlier this month is yet to be established
The issue of where and when the baby was conceived is significant because Nichols wants to sue for paternity in California while Thompson wants the suit handled in Houston, Texas, where Nichols’ lawyers say he will likely pay less child support.
Nichols alleges the pair met in California and were hooking up on and off for five months before she became pregnant and Thompson offered her $75,000 in hush money to get an abortion.
Nichols previously competed in body building, according to social media
‘Contrary to Petitioner’s many inferences in her declaration, we did not have a serious ongoing relationship,’ the superstar athlete coldly responds in a new filing.
‘We saw each other sporadically between December 2020 and March 13, 2021 and did not have sexual intercourse in California during that time.
‘Petitioner told me that she had been involved with other athletes and understood the limitations of our relationship; to-wit, that we might see each other on a sporadic basis for consensual casual sex only.
‘From December 2020 through March 2021, we saw other on such a basis. We never had any telephone calls, emails, nor did we exchange text messages. We only communicated via the Snapchat application.’
Thompson acknowledges in the new papers that he met Nichols at ‘someone’s house’ in Late November or early December 2020.
He also concedes that she came to his LA home on ‘maybe two occasions’ but insists he cannot recall ever having sex with her in California.
‘I only recall that Petitioner and I had sexual relations in March of 2021 and at no other time in 2021,’ he writes in the filing, lodged in LA County superior Court.
‘Petitioner constantly used the term ‘hook up’ to describe our relationship which was the reality. I am certain that if the child is deemed to be my child that the only date of conception was March 13, 2021, because it was my birthday.’
DailyMail.com obtained court documents where Thompson admits to the fling and said they only communicated to discuss hooking up
Dismissing any suggestion of a genuine connection with Nichols, he goes on: ‘Although Petitioner has set forth virtually every date that she contends we had sexual relations, the only date that she cannot remember having sex is on March 13, 2021, my birthday, in Houston, which is the only date that conception could have taken place leading to a delivery on December 1, 2021.
‘As I stated, our relationship was based on sex. We would not have seen each other in Houston if we were not going to have sex.
‘We did not have any dates in the traditional sense at any time; there were no dining at restaurants, going to movies, traveling or any other indicia of a normalized relationship. There was only Snapchats of ‘where’ and ‘what time’ we would hook up and what hotels would be used.’
‘We only communicated via the Snapchat application,’ he states, ‘My username on Snapchat has always been ‘blkjesus00.’
Thompson said they used Snapchat to protect their privacy because of the app’s delete function.
‘After a snapchat message, the message is automatically deleted. If either one of us would do something to try and save the message, the other party would be notified. I was never notified that Petitioner saved a message from me. Petitioner never confirmed that I was notified of her retaining messages,’ he said.
Nichols, who has been described as a former friend of Thompson’s, is a Houston native but has since moved to LA. She is pictured above with her parents
The Houston native has since moved to Los Angeles and is now suing the Sacramento Kings star for child support. She is due to give birth to a baby boy on December 3
Nichols is said to be a friend of Thompson who treated him to ‘a special birthday surprise’ at his hotel in Texas on his birthday
Nichols launched her paternity suit on June 30 in Los Angeles, shortly after relocating from Texas, requesting child support as well as reimbursement of medical expenses and pregnancy-related costs such as Lamaze classes, a doula, and prenatal vitamins
He claimed that Nichols could have ‘easily create a fabricated conversation with a person other than Thompson (including herself) by using two different devices and by using the contact name ‘TT’.
‘There is no way to authenticate what username is sending the messages from the pictures of the Snapchat messages provided by Nichols from ‘TT”.
Thompson insisted Nichols get an abortion and offered her $75,000 in hush money after she became pregnant with his child while he was still dating Kardashian, according to court filings.
Nichols, a Houston native, has since moved to Los Angeles and is now suing the athlete for child support as well as for reimbursement of medical expenses and pregnancy-related costs.
She has also filed to submit text messages between her and Thompson as evidence for her paternity lawsuit which allegedly show that he wanted her to terminate the pregnancy, Page Six reported.
Attorneys for Nichols claim that the communications show Thompson ‘addressing the parties’ relationship’ and ‘insisting that she get an abortion and threatening that she will get next to nothing with lesser support requirements in Texas.’
Bombshell court papers obtained by DailyMail.com claim the baby was conceived in Houston during Thompson’s 30th birthday celebrations in March – when he was still dating Khloe Kardashian, the mother of his four-year-old daughter True. The couple are seen during his birthday bash earlier this year
Khloé shared a heartfelt post for the father of her only child at the time: ‘Thank you for showing me everything you said you would. For the father you are. For the best friend I have in you. I’m thankful that I can do absolutely nothing with you and it feels like everything. ‘I hope you know today and everyday how loved you are by me and so many’
In a copy of a shocking text message obtained by Radar, Thompson allegedly offers Nichols $75,000 to keep quiet and warns that he is retiring after this NBA season and would therefore be unemployed.
He also makes it clear that he has no plans to be involved in the child’s life.
‘You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. Won’t be involved at all. Btw if you think having this baby is gonna make you some money. It’s completely wrong,’ the text message allegedly sent by Thompson reads.
‘You are aware that I’m retiring after this season. So in terms of support it will be whatever is required monthly or someone who’s unemployed. It’s texas (sic) so it will be only a couple hundred dollars. So you better off taking this 75k I’m offering cause you won’t get nothing near that with having a kid with a father who’s unemployed.’
According to the filing, Thompson denied sending the messages but also claims his ‘contact information is present’ in them.
