NBA star Tristan Thompson, 30 recently broke his silence on new accusations from actress Kimberly Alexander who alleged him to be the father of her son. In legal documents obtained by The Blast, Tristan spoke out about the allegations. “I am the father of two young children. I love my children and take my responsibilities as a father extremely seriously. I am involved in my children’s lives and proud to have close relationships with my children and to provide for their needs financially and otherwise,” he wrote in the filing.
“Had the DNA test results showed that Ms. Alexander‘s child was my son, I would have done the same for Ms. Alexander‘s child without hesitation. For Ms. Alexander to falsely state that I am the type of man who would neglect his parental duties hurts me emotionally and is incredibly damaging to my reputation,” he went on to say.
“Most of my professional contracts, including my contracts to play with the NBA, gives them the right to terminate my contract in the event I engage in certain behaviour or conduct that may cast the team or the brand in a negative light publicly…I have potentially lost out on endorsement deals or other brand contracts, as I have been publicly portrayed as a troubled athlete with whom companies do not want to associate or have represent their brand.”
Tristan is currently a father to a daughter, True, 3, with Khloe Kardashian, and a son, Prince, 4, with Jordan Craig.
