Thompson is Prince's father, 4, with his ex Jordan Craig and 3-year-old daughter True, who he shares with  Khloé Kardashian. The couple reportedly has recently called it quits again after allegations of Thompson surfaced of him partying with several women in Los Angeles on Friday (June 18). 

TMZ reports that a source close to the couple revealed they called things off a few weeks ago, which is a short time after a woman named Sydney Chase claimed she slept with the NBA baller after he had reunited with Khloé.
