Tristan Thompson was accused of owing over $224,000 in child support payments by one of his exes, and it's not Khloé Kardashian, has learned.

Jordan Craig is the mother of Thompson's 6-year-old son, Prince. She claims the NBA player has either missed or made partial child support payments since November 2020 — and is seeking to have his Cleveland Cavaliers income garnished.

Craig is the mother to Thompson's 6-year-old son, Prince.

According to court documents filed by Craig last month, Thompson hasn't held up his end of their child support agreement.

Back in 2019, Thompson agreed to pay Craig a whopping $40,000 per month in child support payments starting that April. Despite their agreement, Craig filed a declaration with a Los Angeles court, claiming that since November 2022, Thompson made "'either partial payments or missing child support payments altogether."

According to Daily Mail, Craig's declaration revealed that Thompson, who also shares two children with Kardashian, only paid half of the monthly payment for November 2022.

Thompson allegedly paid the entire $40,000 the following month — and then sent nothing to Prince's mother in January 2023.

After Thompson allegedly failed to pay child custody for January, he made partial payments for the next seven months. From February to July, Thompson sent Craig payments of $14,500 in child support, $25,500 less than the previously agreed to amount.

In August 2023, Thompson made his largest payment since the previous December and forked over $29,000 to Craig, who was raising his child.

Following months of uncertainty, Craig asked the court to garnish Thompson's NBA wages from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

After shuffling around various NBA teams, Thompson signed with the Cavaliers, whom he made his NBA debut with back in 2011, earlier this year. Thompson reportedly earns $2.7 million while playing for Cleveland.

Though still a significant salary, Thompson's wages with Cleveland are far less than the $17.7 million he was earning in 2019 when the child support agreement was made.

In her declaration to the court, Craig asked that Thompson's wages be garnished to $80,000 a month "and to stay in effect until the arrears are satisfied."

"It is my belief that Tristan signed a 'veteran's minimum' contract with the Cavaliers that pays him $2.7million per year. The $80,000 request is certainly less than half of his monthly salary," Craig's declaration stated.

Craig's filing followed her sister, Kai Cyre's condemnation of Thompson, in which she accused him of not being a "good father" after Khloe's sister Kim Kardashian praised his parenting skills.

Thompson is the father to three other children whom he shares with two different women, including Khloe and fitness model Maralee Nichols.
