A source tells PEOPLE that Khloé Kardashian “sa del bambino” that Tristan Thompson has allegedly fathered with Texas personal trainer Maralee Nichols.
According to court documents obtained by LE PERSONE, Nichols is suing Thompson for child support and other pregnancy-related fees after she said they conceived a child together in March. The Sacramento Kings player confessed to having sex with the personal trainer on at least one occasion, per the documents.
“Khloé was upset to find out that he cheated again,” dice la fonte. “She just can’t believe that he is going to be a dad again.”
The insider confirms that Kardashian, 37, and Thompson, 30, were together in March when Nichols claims she was involved with the NBA star. “It’s just a sad situation to her,” they add.
Thompson is already dad to daughter True, 3, con cui condivide Khloé Kardashian, plus son Prince, 4, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.

The source tells PEOPLE that Kardashian had friends encouraging her “ancora e ancora” not to take Thompson back, but ultimately remained by Thompson’s side “perché ha sempre creduto che lui sarebbe cambiato” e voleva mantenere intatta la famiglia per True.
“She is just a really great person and wants to see the positive in people,” dicono.
The insider added that the couple was “andando alla grande” mentre eravamo in quarantena insieme durante il blocco COVID-19, ma quella Kardashian “sapevo che le cose sarebbero cambiate” appena tornato in NBA. “Sperava solo che le sarebbe rimasto fedele e leale,” dice la fonte.
“Khloe’s family always tried to support her,” they add. “They always treated Tristan well even after he broke Khloe’s heart multiple times.”
Thompson and Kardashian have been on and off for several years, e più di recente diviso nel mese di giugno. A un certo punto, the former couple was exploring the idea of having another child together, but their plans for a surrogate fell through last summer. A source previously told PEOPLE that the exes are continuing to “mantieni le cose amichevoli” for True’s sake.
In ottobre, the Sacramento Kings player shared rare photos of his two children hanging out together at an arcade. The first snap shows the siblings standing side-by-side with big smiles while another shows True looking fondly at her big brother.
“Let me love you a little more, before you are not so little anymore #MyEverything❤️❤️,” Thompson captioned the sweet Instagram post.
Kardashian commented on the photo, scrivere, “They are so beautiful and sweet!!!! So so blessed!!! What angels! ❤️.”
The NBA player typically shares snaps while spending time with his kids individually. Thompson in precedenza gave fans a glimpse of his kids together back in 2018 after True was born, posting a family portrait on Instagram for the first time.
