From infidelity scandals and paternity allegations to high-profile breakups, Tristan Thompson’s life in the spotlight has been rife with turmoil.
The Sacramento Kings player debuted in the NBA in 2011. But until August 2016, when he began dating Khloé Kardashian, his personal relations were not so well-known.
Thompson’s previous relationship with Jordan Craig became a major issue once the news of his romance with Kardashian surfaced in September 2016. While Thompson stated that he and Craig had broken up long before he was engaged with the reality tv star; however, Craig’s pregnancy has raised questions about his statement.
Thompson’s former said that his romance with Kardashian brought her grief during the pregnancy. Craig said in court papers filed in November 2018 that the NBA star paid her $112,000 to keep her away from hooking up with other men while he was dating the TV personality.
Jordan does doubt the chronology of Khloé’s very publicized sequence of events at that period, in which she claimed that she was clueless that Tristan had ditched her for Khloé, a source told in June 2019.
Thompson and Kardashian both rejected the claim that they were dating, stating that Thompson was still emotionally tied to Craig.
On the other hand, Thompson was not the only one who was suspected of cheating. In reality, his relationship with Jordyn Woods in February 2019 led to his first separation from Kardashian. While the couple, who have a daughter named True, rejoined in August 2020, a source announced in June 2021 that they were no longer together.
Thompson looks to be surrounded by relationship turmoil since he has been accused of fathering children with a range of women on many occasions. In December 2021, Maralee Nichols had given birth to a child, and she claimed that the father of the child was a Canadian native.
Thompson admitted to having sex with the instructor, whom he spent some time during his 30th birthday party. He also demanded that paternity be determined by DNA testing.
