Tristan Thompson will have to pay nearly $40,000 in child support to his new baby mother Maralee Nichols every month. According to The Jasmine Brand, Thompson‘s figure was calculated by Morghan Leia Richardson, a marriage law professional in New York. She said, “For awards where the parties earn extremely high incomes, such as Tristian, the court will plug the numbers into the support calculator, but also consider several other factors.”
Richardson added, “Usually when a parent is already paying support for another child, that amount reduces the available income to pay support to later children.”
Earlier this month, Thompson confirmed that he fathered a boy with Nichols. He would go on to make a public apology to Khloe Kardashian, “Khloé, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.”
This would make this Thompson’s third child, he shares a 3-year-old daughter with Kardashian, True, and a 5-year-old son named Prince with his ex Jordan Craig. Nichols is currently suing Thompson for pregnancy-related fees and child support.
