Tristan Thompson will no longer have to spend time in courtrooms of Texas. The paternity lawsuit which he filed against Maralee Nichols has finally reached a conclusion.

Us Weekly reports, Tristan Thompson’s suit against Maralee Nichols is dismissed by a judge. Tristan filed the paternity suit against Maralee in Texas in response to Maralee’s suit against him in California. A source told the outlet that both the parties attended and testified at virtual hearing on Wednesday.

Later Page Six reported, the case was sealed online on Wednesday. Just a few days back the NBA star sought a gag order against Nichols to prevent her from speaking to the media.

The source told Us Weekly, that regardless of whether any act of conception occurred in Texas which could have led to the conception of the child. The child was born in California where her mother resides and so does the alleged father. The source added, “It would make sense the judge would dismiss this given the facts and the California lawsuit filed prior to the Texas one.”


Nichols had filed for child support before the couple’s alleged child was born earlier this month. Thompson repeatedly asked for a paternity test to be done to prove if he’s the father. Nichols has yet to comply with the request.
