NBA star files complaint regarding paternity issues

When a Michigan couple decides to divorce or two unmarried people who have been romantically involved decide to part ways, complicated issues may arise if there are children involved. Especially for those who are not married, legal problems regarding paternity often prompt litigation. NBA star Tristan Thompson is currently entangled in a legal battle with a woman who claims he is the father of her almost 5-year-old child.

The woman has apparently been outspoken on social media, not only saying Thompson is her son’s biological father, but also accused him of failing to take financial responsibility for the child. Thompson has a daughter whose mother is celebrity Khloe Kardashian and also has a child with another woman from a past relationship. However, Thompson adamantly denies being the father of Kimberly Alexander’s son.

Thompson recently took a DNA test that conclusively showed he is not the biological parent of Alexander’s child. Alexander, however, stated that she questions legitimacy of the results because the test was administered at a Kardashian-associated testing site. She said if Thompson has nothing to hide, he should have chosen a neutral location for the test.

Thompson and Kardashian have supposedly been talking about having another child together. They have taken legal steps against Alexander by sending a “cease and desist” letter, accusing her of defamation. Anyone in Michigan need of legal support regarding paternity matters can schedule a consultation with an experienced family law attorney, preferably one who has litigated on behalf of other parents who have faced similar issues in the past.
