Khloe & Tristan Threaten To Sue Woman Claiming He's The Father Of Her Child

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson sent a cease and desist letter to a woman claiming the NBA player is the father of her child.
In the letter, which was obtained by E! News, the former couple's attorney, Marty Singer, asked a woman by the name of Kimberly Alexander to "immediately stop defaming them with malicious defamatory lies and specious fabrications" regarding a paternity claim that surfaced online.
The letter was sent on Wednesday (May 13) after Gossip of the City "published copies of alleged paperwork from LB Genetics—a facility specializing in paternity and family relationship DNA testing services—that suggested Tristan took a paternity test" in January 2020, E! News reports.
While Khloe and Tristan's attorney confirmed that Tristan did, in fact, take a paternity test, the results came out negative, proving Tristan is not the father of Kimberly's child. However, Kimberly then reportedly requested that Tristan take a second test, which his attorney said he agreed to but, only if an AABB-accredited lab performed the test.
"After it was indisputably established 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," the former couple's attorney wrote in the letter. "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 somehow falsified the paternity test results since members of the Kardashian family had previously used the same trustworthy lab."
The cease and desist letter went on to state: "It is obvious that the reason you are spreading these lies about my clients is because you want your 15 minutes of fame. My clients will not tolerate your despicable conduct."
"It has been proven that Mr. Thompson is not the father of your child and we demand that you stop claiming that he is, and that he and Ms. Kardashian somehow falsified the paternity test results," Marty continued. "It is defamatory per se to falsely assert that someone is a deadbeat dad who allegedly does not support his children, and to falsely accuse my clients of faking paternity test results."
The letter concluded with Marty promising to take further legal action if Kimberly continued to defame Tristan.
"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 also demand that you immediately take down any and all of your outrageous damaging posts about my clients," it read. "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."
