The 30-year-old basketball star came face to face with the Houston trainer, 31 — who claims she gave birth to his child earlier this month — on Wednesday during a virtual hearing.

As reported, Tristan filed a suit against Nichols in Texas, where his alleged third child was conceived. Nichols filed her paternity suit in CA, which is where she moved during her pregnancy.

Us Weekly was the first to break the news. A source told the outlet, "Regardless of whether any act of conception occurred in Texas that could have led to the conception of the child, they [allegedly] had a lengthy relationship spanning multiple states."

In court documents obtained by, Khloé Kardashian's baby daddy admits to having multiple sexual encounters with Nichols between December 2020 and March 2021.

"The child was born in California, the mother resides there and so does Tristan. It would make sense the judge would dismiss this given the facts and the California lawsuit filed prior to the Texas one," Us Weekly's source adds.

As exclusively reported, Nichols moved into a luxurious apartment building just 20 miles from Tristan.

He believes the move was done in an elaborate scheme for more child support. Tristan claims Nichols was a Houston native during the time of the alleged conception, but as soon as she found out she was pregnant, she moved to the "promise-land of child support."

We've learned the Sacramento Kings star is "skeptical" the baby is his and wants a DNA test done immediately.

As for his relationship with Khloé, sources tell us the pair broke up in early spring. We've learned Khloé is solely "focused on co-parenting" with her ex and there's no drama behind the scenes.
