Tristan Thompson wins libel case against woman who said he fathered her child

By , Audacy Sports

NBA veteran Tristan Thompson has reportedly been awarded a judgement against a woman he said had falsely claimed he was the father of her child.

A court hearing the libel case has sided with Thompson, awarding him $50,000 after the woman, Kimberly Alexander, continued to claim on social media that Thompson fathered her 5-year-old child, even after he'd taken a paternity test proving he had not.

The ruling was confirmed in court docs reportedly obtained by TMZ. The woman has also been compelled to pay court fees, as well as 10% annual interest on the unpaid balance owed to Thompson, the report said.

Khloe Kardashian, Thompson's longtime on-and-off girlfriend and the mother of one of his children, also sent a cease-and-desist letter to Alexander after Alexander allegedly published fake inbox exchanges from social media purporting to have been sent by Kardashian, Page Six recently reported.

Thompson was initially seeking $100,000 in damages, claiming lost endorsement deals, but the judgement was reduced to $50,000 when he was unable to produce evidence of specific deals lost, the TMZ story said.

Thompson, 30, is under contract with the Celtics for one more year, after signing a two-year deal with Boston prior to last season.
