The NBA star has said in court filings that he and Maralee had sex on his birthday in March 2021. “[She] and I attended a party together at a hotel in Houston. [She] had called me and wanted to be with me on my birthday,” he said, at another point stating, “[Nichols] constantly used the term ‘hook up’ to describe our relationship which was the reality.”
In June, E! News reported that the couple had split again.
A second source confirms Khloe is still “very disappointed and hurt by him” in light of recent events. Khloe is “relieved to be done” at this point, per the insider.
“Khloe is all about trust and loyalty,” the second source explained. “She feels disrespected. She’s ready to move on.”
In his apology, Tristan said that Khloe doesn’t “deserve this.” He wrote on his Instagram Story, “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.”
He added, “I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
