How does Khloé Kardashian feel about Tristan Thompson’s alleged baby on the way?

According to sources, Kardashian knew about the baby that Thompson may have fathered with personal trainer Maralee Nichols before the news went public.

“Khloé is kind of gloomy about the news of Tristan’s new [alleged] baby, especially going into the holidays,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “Khloé is always so positive, but this brought her down a little. She has always been into giving Tristan tons of chances and deep down held out hope that they would maybe get back together one day. There is no hope and it’s really done for now, but she thinks it’s for the best.”

The source continued, saying that the rest of the famous family is “over” Thompson.

“They would never trash Tristan in front of True, but they think Khloé needs to put him in his place and not act so nice constantly. He hasn’t been great to her,” the source added. “The family is not at all surprised by the news and have Khloé’s back and just want her to be fine with it and not sad. They don’t think Tristan would ever be faithful and are glad their romantic relationship is done.”

Tristan Thompson tried to persuade the potential mother

When news broke about Thompson’s potential child with Nichols, fans wondered if this was just another rumor. But in recent texts, obtained by HollywoodLife, Thompson reportedly offered Nichols $75,000 to drop her paternity lawsuit against him.

“You know how I feel,” he wrote. “My feelings haven’t changed at all. Wont be involved at all. Btw if you think having this baby is gonna make you some money. It’s completely wrong.”

The basketball player claimed that he was retiring in 2022 and therefore wouldn’t have as much money as she was thinking.

“You are aware that I’m retiring after this season,” he continued. “So in terms of support it will be whatever is required monthly for someone who’s unemployed. It’s Texas, so it will be only a couple hundred dollars. So, you better off taking this 75k I’m offering cause you won’t get nothing near that with having a kid with a father who’s unemployed.”

According to the outlet, Thompson requested that Nichols take a paternity test in July, however genetic testing can only be done once the baby is born.
