There’s no running or hiding from the fact that Tristan Thompson is definitely the father of Maralee Nichols’s child. Is this paternity news the final nail in the coffin for the Sacramento Kings Center’s relationship with Khloe Kardashian? Comedian Lil Duval believes that the famous reality star would be better off with him.
Since Thompson revealed he had fathered a third child, social media has been in a frenzy with everyone hoping Khloe Kardashian will finally move on. After the big reveal, Thomas expressed that Kardashian does not “deserve” all he’s put her through. Finally realizing her worth and the pain and suffering he’s caused all of the years, Thompson stated that Kardashian does not “deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.” However, he also revealed the depths of his “respect and love” for his ex-girlfriend and mother to his daughter. A TMZ clip also shows him picking up True from a gymnastics class with a stunning array of almost 100 roses.
Following Thompson’s statements, his new baby’s mother gave one of her own to PEOPLE declaring she didn’t have any doubt that Tristan Thompson was the father of her baby. Nichols was not the only person to speak on the news that Thompson would be a father again.
Rapper and actor Joey Badass sent a scathing tweet out that advised the NBA player, whom he refers to as a “S.A.N,” to be honest with Kardashian. “Tell Khloe you’re a gyalist and you need more than one woman. Straight up,” the Power Book III: Raising Kanan star tweeted. In a somewhat surprising twist, Kris Jenner’s boyfriend, Corey Gamble, supported Tristan Thompson. Following the January 4th Lakers game, Gamble was spotted by the paparazzi. Gamble then intentionally pulled a Tristan Thompson jersey out of his bag and showed it to the swarming media as he was leaving.
Also seemingly chiming in was his other baby mother, Jordan Craig, who posted shortly after the news was confirmed. With a stunning post on Instagram, Craig said that she’s not entertaining any drama this year. Sending a message to any of her supporters that may be quick to bring the NBA star’s information her way, Craig captioned the photo, “Only Good Health, Love & Happiness in My ’22.”
But comedian Lil’ Duval had an interesting take on the Tristan Thompson debacle. Taking to Twitter, the “Living My Best Life” singer wrote, “Khloe better off being my side chick [than] dealing with Tristan.” Oddly enough, Lil Duval is also a firm believer that “Black Men Don’t Cheat,” although he’s proposing the side chick scenario.

Khloe Kardashian has not directly responded to Tristan Thompson’s apologies. Instead, the reality star recently posted a photo of flowers from her sister and sister’s fiance, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker. And while Lil Duval feels that she would be better off with him in the position he mentioned, a source expressed to PEOPLE that “she will meet the right guy when she is ready.”
