Khloé Kardashian's baby daddy is accusing Nichols of moving to California just to get more money from him if it's proven he's the father. The documents state that she was a resident of Houston at the alleged time of conception, but after she learned about the pregnancy, she moved with a quickness to "the promise-land of child support."

"After learning she was pregnant, Maralee formulated a plan to move to California to attempt to avail herself of more favorable child support rates. As a part of her plan to move to the promise-land of child support, Maralee fabricated evidence of California residency in hopes of securing jurisdiction in a more favorable forum than her actual home forum of Texas," Tristan's lawyer states.
