TRISTAN Thompson bragged that he was “always late” in an Instagram caption that many fans called foul.
The mother and daughter of NBA star Maralee Nichols had previously asked for “$47K a month in child support” for their newborn son, which he reportedly “refused” to pay.
Tristan, 30, shared a few street snaps to her Instagram page on Saturday.
He wears a large gold necklace and a Supreme t-shirt paired with sunglasses in both casual images.
He cryptically captioned the post: “They say good things take time, that’s why I’m always late,” along with a demon, red-faced, and iconic wink feel.
Maralee gave birth to their son Theo on December 1 after an affair with Tristan while he was exclusively dating Khloe Kardashian, 37.
Last month, she claimed that he refused to pay child support and was “not trying” to meet their son.
Fans flooded the comment section claiming that it was something he was shooting for.
“Too late for that child support,” one person commented.
“Oh, that’s why child support is late?!!” wrote otherwise.
“Always late to pay your check,” wrote a third.
“Always make excuses!” slams a quarter.

Also, on Saturday, the athlete launched a cryptic Instagram Story in a similar tone.
“Your biggest test will be how you handle those who have mishandled you,” he wrote, along with two other embarrassed face emojis.
Maralee’s agent claims Tristan “does nothing” to support her son – despite allegedly paying her $40,000 a month.
“Despite other reports, Tristan Thompson did nothing to support her son,” Harvey Englander told Page Six last month.
‘HE HAS WORKED ANYTHING’
“He did not make any efforts to meet their son nor provide any financial support.”

In legal documents obtained by Us Weekly, Maralee claimed that the Chicago Bulls player had “earnings of $9.7 million alone.”
New York marriage attorney, Morghan Leia Richardson, told HollywoodLife that Tristan will have to pay until the infant turns 18.
Recently, Theo was seen in a cute Maralee Instagram post in a rare Maralee Instagram post.
‘BEST YOU GET’ WITH PRINCE
Tristan also has a daughter True, 3, with ex Khloe.
He is also the father of 5-year-old son Prince, whom he shares with ex Jordan Craig and who he is currently paying child support for.
Recently, Tristan called Prince his “best friend” on Instagram in a rare selfie.
His Instagram profile picture appears to be a photo of True and Prince.
Back in January 2022, Tristan admitted he was the father of Maralee’s young son a month after his birth and apologized to Khloe for “humiliating” her.
“Today, paternity test results showed that I am the father of a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to it. raised son in a friendly way,” he wrote.
The basketball player initially claimed his relationship with Maralee was a one-night stand, before admitting they had met several times over sex.
He said in legal documents that they had a 4-month affair, from December 2020 to March 2021.
After months of silence about the Tristan scandal, Khloe opened up about the topic in a cover story for Variety and ahead of her Hulu series.
“I wish I never had to talk about it because it’s not a fun thing to talk about,” she said.
“But it’s been part of my journey in life, so we’ll see it on the show.”
