Tristan Thompson reportedly offered his baby mama and personal trainer Maralee Nichols a sum of $75,000 to drop the case. Her child support lawsuit against Thompson demands that he pay child support for his child. However, Thompson seems to not want to stick around.

The conversation was through texts between Nichols and Thompson. As it was legally filed to add to the case, it makes Thompson’s side of the case rather weaker.

The Sacramento Kings player told Nicholds to take the money, and said that she won’t be getting nearly as much as the $75,000 he’s offering if he has to pay child support.

You know how I feel. My feelings haven’t changed at all. Wont 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.

Thompson then said that since she’s settled in Texas, her child support payments will amount to only a few hundred dollars a month. He then talked about the potential retirement he’ll undergo next year, which will also render his case for paying child support harder.

It’s texas 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. All you will have is a baby with a father who has zero involvement with the child and a few hundred dollars of child support a month.

Whether Thompson retires or not, he really has no intention of being the life of his own child. It’s up to the interpretation of the evidence by the jury which will conclude the matter.
