Tristan Thompson has made a public apology to Khloé Kardashian, with whom he has a 3-year-old daughter, to start the year 2022. On Monday, the NBA star, 30, posted a message on his Instagram Stories to Kardashian, 37, in which he also confessed he fathered a kid with another woman.
“I take full responsibility for my actions,” Thompson said in the statement. “Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”
Thompson then went on to apologize to Kardashian on social media.
“Khloé, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years,” the statement continued. “My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think.”

Thompson’s third kid is said to be the boy born to Nichols. Kardashian gave birth to Thompson’s baby in April 2018, amid a flurry of reports that he had cheated on her during the pregnancy. In addition, Jordan Craig, another of his ex-girlfriends, gave birth to his son in 2016.
Kardashian, 36, is a member of the Kardashian family of well-known media personalities. She is most known for her reality television appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians and its spinoffs, as well as for writing many books.
Kardashian began dating Thompson in 2016, according to reports. In 2019, the couple called it quits after further reports surfaced that Thompson had cheated on her.
During the COVID-19 epidemic in 2020, the pair restored their relationship, but by the summer of 2021, they had broken up again.
A source close to the pair told People magazine that the relationship is back-and-forth because of the back-and-forth nature of the relationship “Khloé found Tristan’s ups and downs to be quite aggravating. She has tried quite hard to gain Tristan’s trust.”
In June 2021, an Instagram model claimed she had slept with Thompson, prompting the latest breakup. Despite his problems off the court, Thompson continues to be a force on the court.
The Cleveland Cavaliers drafted the native of Brampton, Ontario, fourth overall in 2011. In 2016, he won the NBA championship with Cleveland, and in 2020, he signed with the Boston Celtics.
In 2021, Thompson would be moved to his current team, the Sacramento Kings, as part of a three-team deal that also included the Atlanta Hawks.
He has appeared in 700 NBA games, averaging 9.2 points per game and shooting 51.8 percent from the floor.
