What is the history between Tristan Thompson and Maralee Nichols?
Maralee Nichols alleges that her and Tristan Thompson began seeing each other while he was still in a relationship with Khloe Kardashian.
Maralee's accusations were revealed through a child support filing that was dated for December 1, 2021.
In the same court document obtained by The Daily Mail, Tristan and Maralee have differing accounts of the details surrounding their history.
Tristan claims to have only been intimate with Maralee on one occasion in March of 2021, which was his 30th birthday in Houston, Texas.
Maralee countered his statement by disclosing that they allegedly began their affair up to five months prior to his Houston birthday party in March.
What has Maralee said about her relationship with Tristan?
Maralee has broken her silence about Tristan's paternity case, which was dismissed in Texas.
On Thursday, December 16, a judge dismissed the paternity suit that Tristan filed against Maralee in a Houston court. In another Los Angeles suit, Maralee claimed that Tristan is her newborn son's father, whom she just gave birth to this month.
"Over the past couple of weeks, many inaccurate and false stories have been circulated about me," Maralee told E! News.
"I have not at any point released – nor have I directed anyone else to release- any information regarding Tristan Thompson or any litigation involving him."
"I have never spoken to any media outlet, nor have I leaked any information to anyone at any time. I am providing this statement because I feel I must defend my character."
Maralee said that she's been forced to make the statement following some bad publicity she's received.
"I have seen fake stories, unflattering photos of me, people using photos that are not even me, stating an incorrect occupation and age," Maralee said.
"There have been multiple fake Instagram posts claiming to be me, making false statements and attaching stock photos of a sonogram and a child (neither mine)."
Instead, Maralee wanted to set the record: "These are the facts: I have lived in California since 2019. I am not a personal trainer."
"I have not worked as a personal trainer for four years; I do fitness modeling. I was never a personal trainer for Tristan," she ended.
How did Maralee and Tristan meet?
Maralee met Tristan at a party at his Encino, California home in 2020.
"I saw Tristan in March 2021 around his birthday. He told me he had wanted to see me," she said.
"I agreed to meet him in Houston at a private party on March 12. I never drove a Maserati to meet Tristan, as he claimed. He has never even been in my vehicle."
"I used an Uber or was driven by friends that weekend. Houston was one of many nights we spent together. Soon after his birthday weekend in Houston, Tristan invited me to visit him in Boston."
Maralee said she learned she was pregnant just a few weeks after her trip to Boston to see Tristan, adding she told Tristan about her pregnancy in North Carolina after he asked her to see him in April.
In court documents, Tristan claims something different.
"The only time that I had sexual intercourse with [Maralee] in 2021 was in March 2021 in Houston, Texas."
"I specifically remember having sexual intercourse with [her] in March because it was my birthday. [She] and I attended a party together at a hotel in Houston. [She] had called me and wanted to be with me on my birthday."
