Fitness trainer Maralee Nichols posted a series of pictures of her son, Theo, dressed up in a Santa outfit on her Instagram. She captioned the pictures, “Spotted Santa Claus 🎅🏽♥️.” She shares her one-year-old son with Tristan Thompson. The birth of Theo caused a stir as the athlete was dating socialite Khloe Kardashian at the time. The infidelity instantly ended his relationship as he admitted that Theo was his child. Shortly after his relationship ended with Khloe Kardashian, the socialite welcomed their second child, who was conceived before his cheating scandal came into the limelight.

Maralee Nichols filed a lawsuit against Tristan Thompson
Back in June 2021, Maralee Nichols filed a lawsuit against Tristan Thompson for publicly denying that the child was his. She claimed in the lawsuit that she conceived a child with the athlete in March 2021. In December 2021, the athlete admitted that he cheated on the socialite with the fitness trainer, and a paternity test concluded the same. The NBA star later apologized to the Kardashian publicly saying that she didn’t “deserve the heartache and humiliation” he put her through. Throughout their relationship, Thompson was accused of cheating on her several times, but she seemed to ignore all the red flags.
