TRISTAN Thompson's legal battle with Maralee Nichols has taken another nasty turn after he accused his baby mama of having herpes.
The basketball star alleges that Nichols' "medical reasons" for having designated induced labor earlier this month was due to a sexually transmitted disease, new court documents show.
The personal trainer gave birth to a son on December 1.
"Since opening up our private files to the media, I have been contacted by a source confirming that I should be checked because Petitioner [Maralee] has been diagnosed with herpes," the documents, seen by Ace Showbiz, state.
"Therefore, it would make sense that Petitioner had to have a designated delivery date," read the documents shared by The Daily Mail.
The documents go on to claim that the Sacramento Kings star was not the only athlete who was involved with Nichols.
"Petitioner told me that she had been involved with other athletes and understood the limitations of our relationship; to-wit, that we might see each other on a sporadic basis for consensual casual sex only."
Nichols fired back at Thompson's accusations, saying this is just the latest in a nasty round of legal battles.
"I was induced on November 29, 2021 because I had a placenta abnormality," she countered. "There is no other medical reason why I needed to be induced."

"I would never have gotten involved with Tristan if I thought he was in a relationship," she said, adding that she thought Thompson was "single and co-parenting" in reference to his relationship with Khloe Kardashian.
"Tristan told me he was not having a sexual relationship with anyone else; it was not casual sex nor did we have any arrangement," she added.

"Tristan and I communicated daily and talked on the phone. We would see each other several times a month," she added. "He invited me to see him Christmas, New Years, and his birthday."
Instead, she gave E! News a photo of her son near a Christmas tree.
"I gave birth on December 1, 2021," she added. "Instead of focusing on any negativity, I am choosing to embrace being a mother and doing the best I can for my son."
"I do not want any further media attention, nor do I want a romantic relationship with Tristan. My goal is to raise our son in a safe, healthy, loving and private environment."
In the documents, Thompson cast doubt that the baby was his and wanted a DNA test conducted as soon as possible.
He then accused Nichols of intentionally moving from Texas to California to get more money from him following her pregnancy.
The documents detail how he used a Snapchat account under the username "blkjesus00" to speak with Nichols, but he insisted that it was only to talk about "when" and "where" to meet.
"We saw each other sporadically between December 2020 and March 13, 2021," Thompson claimed.
"As I stated, our relationship was based on sex. We did not have any dates in the traditional sense at anytime; there were no dining at restaurants, going to movies, traveling or any other indicia of a normalized relationship."
"There was only Snapchats of 'where' and 'what time' we would hook up and what hotels would be used."
"There are no paparazzi or other media photographs depicting any alleged relationship between us," he said of his relationship with Nichols.
