Tristan Thompson offered up a public apology to ex Khloe Kardashian after a paternity test revealed that he got another woman pregnant while they were together, and even Lamar Odom is weighing in on the scandal.
“I truly wish nothing but the best for her and I’m hoping we can reconnect and talk one day as friends,” Odom reportedly commented on a Facebook post about Thompson. “She is a good person and deserves the world.”
The Sacramento Kings player acknowledged the results of his paternity test, which only happened thanks to a suit filed by his latest baby mama, on his Instagram stories this week.
“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.”
This is Thompson’s third child — he also has a 3-year-old daughter with Khloe and a 5-year-old son with model Jordan Craig.
But his relationship with Khloe was perpetually rocky. The two ultimately split up last year, suggesting that whatever relationship he had with Nichols (which he referred to as a hook up in court documents) happened while the two were still together.
“Khloe, you don’t deserve this,” he continued on a subsequent Instagram post. “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.”
He claimed that he has the “utmost respect and love” for Khloe and apologized for any hurt or disappointment.
Thompson’s apology didn’t make make much of an impression on anyone watching from the outside.
Khloe herself has yet to comment publicly and no one could really blame her if she simply chooses to sit this one out.
