OVER the years, Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian have made headlines multiple times because of their on-and-off-again relationship.
In January 2022, the former couple was back in the headlines after Thompson issued an apology that many might say is long overdue.
Why did Tristan Thompson apologize to Khloe Kardashian?
On January 3, Thompson took to Instagram to apologize to Kardashian where he later admitted to fathering a child with another woman while they were together.
"Khloé, you don't deserve this. You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you," Thompson wrote. "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.
"I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think Again, I am incredibly sorry."
In another post, he continued: "Today, paternity test results reveal 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."
Adding: "I sincerely apologize to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately. "
The apology comes just weeks after Thompson admitted to having a four-month affair with Nichols while dating Kardashian.
Who is Maralee Nichols?
In December 2021, Nichols, 31, made headlines after she filed a child support claim against Thompson, claiming to be carrying his baby.
At the time, Thompson alleged to have only been intimate with Nichols on one occasion claiming the baby was not his, however, Nichols countered his statement by disclosing that they allegedly began their affair up to five months prior to his Houston birthday party in March.

"Over the past couple of weeks, many inaccurate and false stories have been circulated about me," Nichols told E! News amid the drama.
"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.
"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."
She later continued, "I have seen fake stories, unflattering photos of me, people using photos that are not even me, stating an incorrect occupation and age.
"There have been multiple fake Instagram posts claiming to be me, making false statements and attaching stock photos of a sonogram and a child (neither mine)."
Adding, "These are the facts: I have lived in California since 2019. I am not a personal trainer.
"I have not worked as a personal trainer for four years; I do fitness modeling. I was never a personal trainer for Tristan."
How many children does Tristan have?
Over the years, Thompson has father three children.
Prior to his son with Nichols, the professional basketball player welcomed another son, Prince, 5, with Jordan Craig, and a daughter, True, 3, with Kardashian.
