Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are threatening legal action against a woman who claims the latter fathered her child.
E! reports that the pair have issued a cease and desist letter sent by their attorney Marty Singer to the woman named Kimberly Alexander, asking her to “immediately stop defaming them with malicious defamatory lies and specious fabrications” regarding a paternity claim that made its way online.
A tabloid site, Gossip of the City, published copies of alleged paperwork from LB Genetics (a facility that specializes in paternity and family relationship DNA testing services) that claimed that Tristan took a paternity test in January 2020.
The report included screenshots of text messages allegedly sent by Tristan to Kimberly, as well as copies of emails that Kimberly purportedly received from her former attorney, Lisa Bloom.
E! obtained the cease and desist letter and it confirms that Tristan did take a paternity test, which came out negative.
Kimberly had then requested Tristan to take a second test (which Singer says he agreed to) on the condition that an accredited lab perform the test.
In the document, Singer writes:
After it was indisputably by a paternity test performed by one of the most reputable labs that Mr. Thompson is not your child’s father, we thought that would be the end of this.
Instead, you have continued to spread outrageous lies about my clients, including ridiculous fictional conspiracy theories that you conjured up claiming that my clients supposedly falsified the paternity test results since members of the Kardashian family had previously used the same trustworthy lab.”
Khloe and Tristan’s attorney further claims that Kimberly was fired by Bloom’s legal firm (revealed in an alleged letter sent from Bloom’s firm to Kimberly and published by Gossip of the City, saying that they were unable to resolve her claims and could no longer represent her).
The concluding part of the cease and desist letter reads:
We demand that you immediately cease and desist from defaming my clients on social media (irrespective of whether or not the accounts are public or designated as private) and elsewhere. We ala demand that you immediately take down any and all of your outrageous damaging posts about my clients.
This is an extremely serious matter. If you disregard this letter’s demands, you do so at your peril since you will soon find yourself in court facing multi-million dollar claims while attempting to defend your indefensible misconduct.”
Tristan has two children; he welcomed his son Prince Thompson (3) with ex Jordan Craig in 2016, and his daughter True Thompson with Khloe was born in 2018.
