Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband Lamar Odom has shared his thoughts about Tristan Thompson, the father of her 3-year-old child, True Thompson. According to TMZ, Thompson revealed on his Instagram Stories that he is the father of model Maralee Nichols’ one-month-old son. The professional basketball player had previously denied that the baby was his child.
“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,” read the Instagram Story.
The 30-year-old also apologized to Kardashian, writing, “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.”
While speaking to TMZ on January 12, 2022, Odom revealed that he has not spoken to his ex-wife as of late. The publication noted that the former basketball player and Kardashian have been divorced since 2016.
“I haven’t been fortunate to reach out to her. That’s too bad. But she’s going to be alright. She’s a strong girl,” said Odom.
He asserted that he would like “to give [Kardashian] a hug,” as he has not “seen her in a long time.” The 42-year-old also shared that he wanted the reality television star to “keep her faith in God” and “be strong for her daughter” amid her difficult circumstances.
When asked if he “had anything to say to Tristan,” Odom did not mince words.
“That dude is corny for that but it’s all good,” said the New York native.
