Another day, another drama between Khloe and Tristan…

Tristan Thompson has revealed he is the father of a newborn son and has apologized to Khloe Kardashian. The Sacramento Kings basketball player posted a note on his Instagram stories Monday stating that a paternity test has proven he fathered a child in December with fitness model Maralee Nichols.

“I take full responsibility for my actions,” he wrote. “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.”

Trista Thompson specifically apologized to Kardashian, who is the mother of his three-year-old daughter, True, and with whom he was reportedly in a relationship when he became involved with Nichols.

“Khloe, you don’t deserve this,” he wrote. “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.”

The paternity test came about after Nichols filed a paternity suit against Thompson in Los Angeles last year. Tristan Thompson also has a 5-year-old son, Prince, with former girlfriend Jordan Craig.

Khloe and Tristan’s relationship was documented on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Kardashian learned Thompson had cheated on her just days before giving birth. He then cheated again with Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods.
