LeBron — who is tight with Khloé and the entire Kardashian family — lost it when he saw Tristan as he played for the Lakers in their game against the Sacramento Kings at the new Cypto.com arena.
LeBron was trying to get the ball when he dove into the King's bench where Tristan was sitting. "I'm a motherfu--ing problem, bitch," he shouted as he looked in the direction of Khloé's ex.
An eyewitness claims there was no mistake who LeBron was talking to because he stared directly into Tristan's eyes. LeBron's defense of Khloé isn't wild given the two have been extremely friendly over the years.
The NBA star is clearly upset with Tristan after a DNA test proved he was the father to the newborn son of a woman named Maralee Nichols.
Earlier this year, Tristan was sued by Maralee for paternity and child support. He demanded a DNA test be done claiming he wasn't sure the child was his. She claims he even sent her a nasty text message pressuring her to get an abortion. Maralee claims Tristan sent her a Snapchat message offering $75k to go through with the procedure.
Tristan denies he ever sent the message and accuses Maralee of fabricating the screenshot. Regardless, the DNA test came back this week showing Tristan's gut feeling was wrong because was indeed the dad.
After finding out about the bombshell news, Tristan tried to beat everyone to the punch and posted an apology to Khloé on Instagram while confirming the DNA test results.
He wrote, "Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son."
"I sincerely apologize to everyone i've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately," he added.
Tristan then issues an apology. "Khloé, you don't deserve this. You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don't deserve the way I treated you over the years. My actions have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you," he wrote. The reality star has yet to respond to his public statement.
