Making a statement on behalf of the former personal trainer, Harvey Englander shared details of the paternity battle saying: "There was never any doubt that Tristan Thompson was the father of Maralee Nichols' baby".
"Tristan made numerous false and defamatory statements and declarations about Maralee over the past few months, and she is taking his contrite statement today in the context of all of those statements" the statement continued to read.
Yesterday, Tristan Thompson made an official statement on his IG stories confirming that he is indeed the father of Maralee Nichols' baby whilst also apologising to Khloe Kardashian for humiliating her.
"Today, paternity test results revealed that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologise to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately" he wrote.
"Khloe, you don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation my actions have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years" he 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. Again, I am so incredibly sorry".
This shockingly comes after Tristan denied being the father of the baby boy born last month after Maralee spoke out on her secret relationship with the NBA star during the filing of her lawsuit. He currently shares a three-year-old daughter named True with the Khloe.
"Over the past couple of weeks, many inaccurate and false stories have been circulated about me. I have not at any point released, nor have I directed anyone else to release, any information regarding Tristan Thompson or any litigation involving him" her lawsuit claims.
"I have never spoken to any media outlet, nor have I leaked any information to anyone at any time. I am providing this statement because I feel I must defend my character. I do not want any further media attention, nor do I want a romantic relationship with Tristan".
The 30-year-old athlete responded to her lawsuit by filing an emergency gag order request in an attempt to stop her from saying anything about their affair or new born child.
