TRISTAN Thompson has slammed the woman who claimed he fathered her child for "ruining his reputation" and has demanded about "$100k in damages."
Based on the new legal documents, obtained by TMZ, Tristan, 30, has filed a default judgment against the paternity accuser Kimberly Alexander, who he sued for libel last year.
In the docs, Tristan claimed that Kimberly's false accusations have reportedly cost him endorsement deals.
Companies and brands have viewed him "as a troubled athlete," due to her false accusations.
The NBA star is seeking $100k in damages, plus additional costs.
In the latest update by TMZ, Tristan's request for a default judgment has been denied, due to a few "issues" that needed corrections.
Last year, the basketball player took a paternity test on May 14th after a woman claimed he was reportedly the father of her son.
Khloé Kardashian, 36, and Tristan, who have been dating on-and-off since 2016, sent a cease and desist letter to Kimberly, asking her to "immediately stop defaming them with malicious defamatory lies and specious fabrications."
Before the cease and desist letter was sent, Tristan prepped Khloé for what was about to happen, even though paternity test confirmed he was not the baby's father.
According to People, Tristan revealed to his ex that he indeed "had sex" with Kimberly, which was reportedly a "one-night stand with the woman sometime during his rookie season in 2011-2012," but the affair happened long before they were a couple.
Tristan shares Prince, three, with Jordan Craig, and True, two, with Khloé.
Then in June, Tristan served Kimberly with libel papers at her "Hollywood hideout" after investigators had spent weeks searching for her whereabouts.
A source exclusively told The Sun: "Khloe and Tristan hired one of Hollywood’s most powerful lawyers, Marty Singer, back in May to sue this woman but the problem was they couldn’t find her.
“She had been living in Miami, Florida for years but then she moved and left no forwarding address.
“But then she posted that she was starting up a service as a hiking tour guide and posted pictures of trails. Investigators recognized one of them. It was in Hollywood.
“They went door to door in the area and found her apartment building.
Marty Singer, Tristan's lawyer, then filed a libel complaint and demanded a jury trial against Kimberly for fabricating "a false claim that NBA star/Cleveland Cavaliers center/power forward Thompson is the father of her nearly five-year-old son."
Recently, Tristan's alleged mistress, Sydney Chase, 23, claimed he cheated on Khloe after their reconciliation.
Sydney claimed on a podcast that she had a sexual relationship with Tristan, who had allegedly lied about being single.
The Sun reported that Sydney has denied reports the NBA star was suing her following her cheating allegations.
The Boston Celtics player reportedly accused Sydney of being a “liar" for alleging a months-long sexual relationship.
After Marty spoke out about sending a cease and desist letter, a source close to the model exclusively told The Sun that it’s "not true."
The insider said Sydney “has not been served any letter” from Tristan’s team and is “confused” by his lawyer’s allegations of a cease and desist letter.
The source also alleged that Sydney has been “telling the truth” and has the “receipts” to back up her claims.
In a statement obtained by The Sun, Sydney's attorney Gloria Allred stated that her client is "outraged at what she regards as false statements that have been made about her in the media by Tristan Thompson’s representatives.
“When we conclude our investigation, we will then advise Sydney regarding her legal options."
