Tristan Thompson admits to having had a relationship with Maralee Nichols, mother of his 3rd alleged child. In a new legal declaration, Tristan Thompson says he had a "consensual casual" sexual relationship with Maralee Nichols, who recently gave birth to a baby she alleges is his third child.

On Tuesday, Dec. 14,  published court documents future-dated Dec. 16 that contain a declaration from the NBA star and ex-boyfriend of , mother of his second child , 3.

The athlete, who also has an older son, maintains that if he is the father of Nichols' baby boy, who was born Dec. 1, he was conceived when the two had sex this past March on his 30th birthday in Houston, where she used to live before moving to California ahead of their legal battle. According to reports, their hookup allegedly took place months before the Tristan and Khloe Kardashian split

"Contrary to [Nichols'] many inferences in her declaration, we did not have a serious ongoing relationship," Thompson's declaration said. "We saw each other sporadically between December 2020 and March 13, 2021 and did not have sexual intercourse in California during that time."

He added, "[Nichols] 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. From December 2020 through March 2021, we saw each other on such a basis."
