Tristan Thompson’s Alleged Baby Mama Maralee Nichols Demands Sanctions Against NBA Star In Court, Accuses Him Of Playing Dirty Games
Tristan Thompson’s alleged baby mama Maralee Nichols is demanding the court sanction the NBA star financially for his attempts to make sure their paternity battle is heard in a court that will be favorable to him.
According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, days before she gave birth, Maralee filed a motion for sanctions against Tristan as part of their Texas court war.
Maralee filed a paternity lawsuit against Tristan after moving to California earlier this year. Instead of responding to the suit, Tristan filed his own lawsuit in Texas where the child support guidelines are much lower.

Mr. Khloé Kardashian claims Maralee only moved to California to score higher child support. In her recent filing, Maralee says “Without having himself any connection to Texas, and with a baby to be born in California, and with the mother and Tristan to be residing in California, Tristan has forum-shopped to avail himself of a seemingly more favorable Texas forum.”
Her lawyer argues, “Truth be told, he would never, ever be able to establish a proper venue here in the State of Texas for his parentage action.” Maralee says the paternity suit cannot be fought in a state where she doesn’t live, and the child was not born.
In her motion, Maralee is asking for sanctions including fees, costs and any further punishment the court finds fit. Tristan scoffed at the idea of being hit with sanctions and is demanding the court deny the request.
He says Maralee cannot show he brought his lawsuit in bad faith or for the purpose of harassing her. Tristan is adamant Texas is the proper forum for the battle. A judge has yet to rule on sanctions.

As RadarOnline.com first reported, Tristan does not deny hooking up with Maralee. The two reportedly had sexual encounters in March while celebrating his 30th birthday. The got together the same month Khloé took him back after cutting him out of life for over a year due to a separate cheating scandal.
After finding out about Maralee's pregnancy, Tristan allegedly sent her Snapchat messages in which he pressured her to get an abortion and claimed he would be unemployed in the near future.
"Btw if you think having this baby is gonna make you some money. It's completely wrong. You are aware that I'm retiring after this season. 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," he wrote.
"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."
The NBA star ended, "All you will have is a baby with a father who has zero involvement with the child and a few hundred dollars of child support a month."
