TRISTAN Thompson’s “baby mama Maralee Nichols moved from Texas to a posh Los Angeles beach-side apartment just miles from the NBA star.”
The personal trainer recently gave birth to Tristan’s third child.
Radar Online reported on Thursday that Maralee, 31, moved states after learning she was pregnant with Tristan’s child.
According to court documents obtained by the outlet, Tristan, 30, claimed Maralee moved into a luxury apartment in Marina Del Rey in early 2021.
The apartment, which is located in a secluded neighborhood, is just 5 minutes away from the beach.
Listing details for the apartment claim the pad is completely renovated with a brand new kitchen, cabinets and quartz countertops.
"Luxurious master bath with steam showers and sauna. Ceilings are high 20 feet and soaring," the real estate agent said.
Maralee’s decision to move to California enraged Tristan, who is demanding their paternity battle be fought in Texas.
However, Tristan hasn’t been getting his way amid the love child scandal as his request to deal with the paternity lawsuit in Texas was denied.

A judge presiding over the paternity lawsuit dismissed Tristan's case filed in Texas, according to Us Weekly.
Both Tristan and Maralee presented their testimonies in a virtual hearing on Wednesday.
In June, the fitness instructor filed a paternal lawsuit against the NBA star in California, and in July, he hit back with his own filed in Texas.
“Regardless of whether any act of conception occurred in Texas that could have led to the conception of the child, they [allegedly] had a lengthy relationship spanning multiple states,” a source told the publication regarding the Wednesday hearing.
“The child was born in California, the mother resides there and so does Tristan. It would make sense the judge would dismiss this given the facts and the California lawsuit filed prior to the Texas one.”
BABY NUMBER THREE
It was revealed earlier this month that Maralee welcomed a son after she claimed to have had an affair with Khloe Kardashian's baby daddy.
The new mother said the child was conceived on the night of the athlete's birthday in March, although he was still in a relationship with Khloe, 37, at the time.
According to legal documents filed in August, Tristan had offered to pay Maralee $75,000 instead of child support in a series of messages.
The texts allegedly read: “My feelings haven’t changed at all. [I] won’t be involved at all.
"Btw if you think having this baby is gonna make you some money. It’s completely wrong. You are aware that I’m retiring after this season.
"So in terms of support it will be whatever is required monthly for someone who’s unemployed. It’s texas so it will be only a couple hundred dollars,” the messages reportedly read.
“So you better off taking this 75k I’m offering cause you won’t get nothing near that with having a kid with a father who’s unemployed. All you will have is a baby with a father who has zero involvement with the child and a few hundred dollars of child support a month.”
Tristan already shares son Prince, four, with his ex Jordan Craig and daughter True, three, with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.
The Sacramento Kings player recently confessed in court documents that he had a "four-month affair with baby mama" Maralee and sent "sex messages" while still in a relationship with Khloe.
In the papers, Tristan said he and the personal trainer had sex many times and had been hooking up for several months.
He initially claimed that they met up and only had sex several times on his 30th birthday in March, though he has since admitted that was not the case.
In the court documents, Tristan revealed that he began chatting with Maralee on Snapchat, where he used the name "blkjesus00."
Through the photo and video sharing app, the two would discuss when and where they would meet up for sex.
In the filing, Tristan and his legal team asserted: "Contrary to Petitioner's many inferences in her declaration, we did not have a serious ongoing relationship."
He went on: "We saw each other sporadically between December 2020 and March 13, 2021, and did not have sexual intercourse in California during that time.
"Petitioner told me that she had been involved with other athlete and understood the limitations of our relationship; to-wit, that me might see each other on a sporadic basis for consensual casual sex only.
"From December 2020 through March 2021, we saw each other on such a basis. We never had any telephone calls, emails, nor did we exchange text messages. We only communicated via the Snapchat application."
Maralee wants to sue for paternity in California, where she claims the baby was conceived.
However, Tristan denied ever having sex with Maralee in California, but did admit in the filing that he had her at his Los Angeles home on "maybe two occasions."
The Sun exclusively reported that Khloe found out about Tristan's latest child on social media, adding that she was "shocked to the core."
