Maralee Nichols and Tristan Thompson haven’t seen eye-to-eye since she revealed that she was pregnant with his child. Now that baby Theo is here and a court ordered paternity test confirmed Tristan is his father, Maralee is taking the steps necessary to ensure her baby boy is taken care of.
According to legal documents obtained by Us Weekly, Maralee filed for monetary support from Tristan, which includes more than $1 million in legal fees!
“With regard to child support, using Tristan’s come of $9.7 million alone and Maralee’s income of $0, Maralee at this time requests guideline monthly child support of $47,424,” the documents state.
Nichols also requested a judge order Thompson to cover her attorney fees, which reportedly exceed $1 million. The documents estimate Thompson’s monthly income at about $810,075, and Nichols claimed that her expenses are more than $22,000 per month.
“Theo and I are living at a far depressed standard of living than Tristan,” the documents reportedly state.
Nichols went on to allege that she is currently living in an apartment with a roommate, and Tristan has not given her any money for their son.
As we previously reported, Maralee Nichols and Tristan Thompson’s journey to parenthood has been quite rocky. Tristan initially denied sleeping with Maralee on more than one occasion, and found himself publicly apologizing to Khloe Kardashian once it was confirmed that he fathered a son with Maralee.
He penned a message to Khloe on Instagram back in January.
“Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols,” he wrote. “I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son. Khloe you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years.”
“My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you,” Tristan continued. “I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so sorry.”
