Tristan Thompson is facing backlash as he reportedly welcomed a secret son with personal trainer, Maralee Nichols. The athlete infamous for his infidelity was said to still be with his baby mama Khloe Kardashian at the time of conception.

Nichols filed a lawsuit asking for child support in the wake of the controversy. Thompson has repeatedly demanded a paternity test and denied that the child is his. It was even rumored that Thompson bribed Nichols with $75,000 to stay quiet.

According to the Daily Mail, the Sacramento Kings player essentially admitted to hooking up with Maralee Nichols over a three-month-long sexual affair at hotels. Court documents obtained by the Daily Mail revealed that Tristan communicated with Maralee via Snapchat under the username “blkjesus00” to discuss when and where he would meet Maralee for hookups.

For those unaware the username blkjesus00 is a reference to “Black Jesus”. Thompson said “My username on Snapchat has always been ‘blkjesus00.’ We used Snapchat to communicate to protect our privacy,” he continued, noting that the app “automatically” deletes messages after they are read.


The NBA star went on to claim that Nichols had “fabricated” a leaked screenshot of a Snapchat message in which he purportedly urged her to get an abortion. Thompson previously cheated on Kardashian in 2018 while she was pregnant with their now-3-year-old daughter, True, and again in 2019 with Kylie Jenner’s then-BFF, Jordyn Woods.
