The former personal trainer filed a paternity lawsuit against Tristan in June 2021, claiming she became pregnant with him around his birthday in late March. The NBA player responded by acknowledging that the couple had had sex at the time she claimed, but requested a paternity test. Maralee later gave birth to a baby boy on December 1, around the time news of the paternity lawsuit broke.

Maralee said Us Weekly that Tristan told her he was “single and co-parent” of her daughter, true Thompson, with Khloé and son Prince with ex Jordan Craig. “I would never have been involved with Tristan if I thought he was having an affair,” she said in a story published on Dec.17.

Khloé and the basketball player started dating in August 2016 but split in 2019 after his cheating scandal with Khloé’s sister Kylie Jennerthe former best friend of Jordyn Woods.

They reconciled in the spring of 2020 after being quarantined as a family with True, 3, amid the coronavirus pandemic. They were still a couple at the time of her birthday in March 2021, when she ended up being together with Maralee. The couple broke up in the spring of 2021, shortly before Tristan was spotted partying with several women at Los Angeles’s Bel-Air Hotel in June.

The founder of Good American seemed to be trying to make sense of the pain Tristan caused her in an Instagram Stories post on Thursday, Dec.30. It read: “There will be very painful moments in your life that will change your whole world in a matter of minutes. These moments will change you. Let them make you stronger, smarter and kinder. But don’t go and become someone who [you’re] not. Scream. Scream if you have to. Then straighten that crown and keep it moving. “
