Tristan Thompson’s bank will have to debit a hefty amount to his new baby mama Maralee Nichols every month. According to The Jasmine Brand, the figure was calculated by Morghan Leia Richardson, a marriage law professional in New York. Needless to say, being an NBA baller has its downside, because he has to pony up a lot of dough for his new child.
Tristan Thompson confirmed on his Instagram story on Jan. 3 that he is, in fact, the father of Maralee Nichols’ one-month old son. This admission came after a paternity test proved that he is the father, and Maury wasn’t even needed to break the news.
The child was born on December 2, 2020, at a hospital in California. The child support amount has been estimated to be roughly around $40,000.
Thompson’s high salary will play a big role in the amount that has to be paid in child support. Previously, Thompson denied the paternity of the child, stating differences in the possible sexual encounters as reasons for the claims to be untrue. Richardson spoke about how the child support amount can be affected on the amount of money the man earns.
“For awards where the parties earn extremely high incomes, such as Tristian, the court will plug the numbers into the support calculator, but also consider several other factors. Usually when a parent is already paying support for another child, that amount reduces the available income to pay support to later children”
Rumors of Tristan fathering another child began to spread days before Maralee Nichols gave birth to their child on December 1, 2021. Tristan confirmed having relations with Maralee but was sure to stress the notion of the union being sexual only and not that of romance. Maralee released a statement addressing the situation days after giving birth.
On the other hand, Khloe Kardashian’s fans have been calling out Tristan Thompson after he confirmed his paternity to Maralee Nichols’ newborn son. Tristan has been going through some rough patches of time. He has accepted and realized his responsibilities of being the father in this case.
