Tristan Thompson “will pay Maralie Nichols $ 40,000 a month in alimony” after first promising to “give her a few hundred”

TRISTAN Thompson’s confession that he gave birth to a child from another woman not only cost him his relationship with Khloe Kardashian, but also probably cost him a lot of money.

With his direct admission, the NBA basketball player will likely have to pay alimony up to $ 40,000 a month.

New York City Marriage Lawyer Morgan Leah Richardson Told Hollywoodlife Tristan will have to pay until the newborn is 18 years old.

“When considering the issue of the payment of alimony, the court will consider the monthly income of both parents and the amount of time the child spends with each of the parents,” the lawyer said. “All income including money / wages, tips, commissions, bonuses, unemployment benefits, interest income, dividend income, rental income, insurance payments are all fair game for calculating child support.

“For awards in which the parties earn extremely high returns, such as Tristian, the court will include the numbers in the support calculator, but it also takes into account several other factors.

“One argument for a larger award would be to ensure that the child has the same or similar lifestyle in both homes.”

But just because Tristan is already supporting his first child, 5-year-old Prince, don’t expect a new child to receive the same amount every month.

In fact, the opposite could have happened.

According to Morgan: “Usually, when a parent is already paying child support for another child, that amount reduces the income available to pay child support for later children.

“Since Tristan pays child support for other children, this will be a factor in calculating how much child support he will pay for this child.

“The reports show that his income is about $ 10 million, so based on that number and the report that he pays $ 40K a month for his son, when I run the calculator, I get an estimate of $ 34K in month”.


On Monday, January 3, Tristan announced that he had received back the results of a long-awaited paternity test, publicly pleading with ex-Chloe to forgive him.

Write on Instagram On Monday evening, 30-year-old Tristan broke the news: “Today the paternity test results showed that I gave birth to a child from Maralie Nichols.”

He continued his story: “I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established, I was looking forward to the opportunity to raise our son together.

“I sincerely apologize to everyone I have offended or disappointed during this ordeal, both publicly and privately.

He then turned his attention directly to his ex in a separate Instagram Story slide.

“Chloe. You don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I’ve caused you.

“You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions definitely didn’t coincide with how I feel about you.

“I have great respect and love for you, no matter what you think.

“I’m incredibly sorry again,” he concluded his emotional plea.


On December 1, Marali gave birth to Tristan’s child, a boy, after several months of litigation.

The former fitness instructor has filed a lawsuit seeking financial support for the Canadian sports star.

In her legal filing, she argued that she and Tristan conceived a child on his birthday back in March.

At the time, Chloe was dating “exclusively” with Tristan, whom she had previously forgiven for past infidelity scandals.

As previously reported by Kristen Bell Tattoos, Chloe feels “humiliated” by the latest episode of cheating on the part of Tristan, as he has been publicly convicted of cheating on her several times in the past.

In his last miss, the basketball player stated that his relationship with Marali was originally a one-day one.

However, he later admitted in legal documents that he met her several times for sex.

Tristan has one child with Chloe, their daughter Tru. He also has a son, Prince, 5 years old, from ex-Jordan Craig, to whom he is currently paying child support.

Tristan has a way to get rid of having to pay that much every month: leave the NBA.

Lawyer Morgan says: “Athletes have a limited career span and have three young children to support.

“I hope everyone involved is saving money for the kids. If he is injured or can no longer play, he may ask for a cut of support at some point. “
