A few months ago, nobody knew who Maralee Nichols was. But the personal trainer first made headlines when she revealed that the professional basketball player, Tristan Thompson, was in fact the father of her baby. The NBA player aknowledged that he hooked up with Nichols in the past, in response to the July 2021 court filing.

Maralee also became the toast of the town, after she was being linked to Khloé Kardashian, because at the time when Tristan got involved with her, the NBA player was still with Khloé; in fact, they had just got back together when the alleged affair took place. Also, Thompson requested genetic testing to prove that he was the father of Maralee's son after meeting in March, finding out that he was the father of the child.

While the legal battle between the duo continued last year, it was announced in December 2021 that Nichols finally gave birth to a baby boy. The same month, Nichols went on to break her silence about the lawsuit in an effort to “defend her character.” Also, as she has continously stated, her only interest in all this complex ordeal has been to protect her baby child.

Even though people have refer to her as a fitness trainer, Maralee released a statement in December 2021 in which she revealed to not have worked as a personal trainer for four years, “I do fitness modeling,” she said. But she also explained that she was never a personal trainer for Tristan. Over the years, Nichols have documented her workout journey on social media.

Maralee Nichols was born in Texas but she moved to California in 2019. Ever since, the fitness model has been living there. It was in 2020 when she met Tristan Thompson, and this happened during “a party at his home in Encino, California.” Nichols has stated that, when she met Thompson, he referred to himself as “single and coparenting.”

But not only that, Nichols also stated that she would never have gotten involved with the NBA star, had she thought or know he was in a relationship. At the time, it was widely reported how Tristan Thompson and Khloé Kardashian had rekindled their romance in August 2020, only to calling it quits again less than one year later.

When Nichols and Thompson met back in 2020, the new mom claims that the NBA star initially told her that he was “not having a sexual relationship with anyone else.” This made Maralee think that this new kindling was “not casual sex,” and she added in a lengthy statement that “Tristan and I communicated daily and talked on the phone. We would see each other several times a month.”

In fact, at the time Nichols went on to detail how Tristan invited her to see him on Christmas, New Year's and his birthday in March. However, it is widely known that at the time the former Cleveland Cavaliers star was dating Khloé Kardashian, with whom he shares 3-year True Thompson.

So far, Nichols have made it very clear that she is not interested romantically in Tristan Thompson; in fact, she has said not to be interested in him in any other capacity than what the law should mandate. Shortly after the lawsuit had been dismissed in the state of Texas, Maralee Nichols revealed that her only goal was raise her son (and Tristan's) in a safe, healthy, loving and private environment.

Thanks to this whole ordeal, Maralee Nichols has gained notoriety and her net worth has exponentially increased. As of January 2022, Maralee Nichols' net worth is impressive, even though the figures remain under review. On the other hand, Tristan Thompson's, who is the new parent alongside Maralee Nichols' net worth is estimated to be above $45 million.
