Tristan Thompson has been paying Maralee Nichols child support despite their ongoing family court lawsuit, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
An attorney for Thompson informed Page Six in a legal letter sent late Wednesday that the NBA free agent “is paying, and has paid, child support to Ms. Nichols retroactive to the date she delivered the child.”
Nichols gave birth to their son Theo, on Dec. 1, 2021.
Earlier this year, a rep for Nichols claimed in a statement that Thompson had done nothing and provided zero “financial assistance,” but he since has repaid the money owed.
While the basketball player may be ponying up the funds, a source tells us that he has yet to bond with his baby boy.
