The 33-year-old Sacramento Kings forward issued a statement, which read, “Khloé, you don't deserve this. 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. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry."

In a statement to PEOPLE, Nichols’ rep said, "There was never any doubt that Tristan Thompson was the father of Maralee Nichol's baby.

His ex, Khloe Kardashian, who is the mother of 3-year-old daughter True, has not spoken out.

Tristan Thompson also has a 5-year-old son named Prince with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
