Tristan Thompson is being accused of ‘bribing’ ex Jordan Craig to not date other men after their break up, even though he was dating Khloe Kardashian.
Though he’d already moved on to another woman, the NBA employed loverat reportedly shelled out $112k dollars to ensure his first baby mama didn’t get involved with anyone else, according to RadarOnline.com.
According to the court documents Craig, 27, told Thompson’s attorney that the money, which was given to her after the purchase of her LA home in 2017, was to ensure that she wasn’t ‘dating anybody or talking to anybody.’

The deposition was in regards to Craig’s suit again Thompson for child support for their son Prince, who was born a full four months after the basketball played publicly began dating Kardashian.
Describing the six-figure payment as ‘a bribe’ during a January 2019 deposition, Craig told Thompson’s lawyer Peter Lauzon that money meant ‘[Thompson] would help me if I wasn’t, like, dating anybody or talking to anybody, and that I would have to come see him.’
Pressed if she took the ‘bribe’ or not, Craig admitted she accepted the money for the sake of their son, Prince. She also said part of the sum went to her family for loans used to finance her LA home.
Responding to Jordan’s claims, Tristan contended that ‘No one ever said about not see or date anyone.’
But seeming to muddy the waters, he continued, telling attorneys: ‘All I please said is, if you’re a single woman, I wanted to request her not to have random men around my child.’
According to the deposition, Thompson’s attorney continued to interrogate Craig, who admitted she needs ‘help’ to continue paying the mortgage on her LA home of which she still reportedly owes ‘a lot’ on.
Exasperated by the line of questioning, the Instagram influencer frankly asked the basketball player’s consul: ‘Why do you think we’re here, Peter?’
Tristan’s lawyer responded in turn, remarking how Craig spent $20k to build a pool for the son she and Thompson share.
Commenting on the home renovation, the attorney said: ‘To squeeze my client for more money so you can afford another $16,000 castle for your kid.’
Jordan defending the buy, saying that she and Tristan had agreed on the purchase for the swim-loving offspring.
Another point of contention was how much time Thompson was spending with son Prince. A late 2018 report from Radar revealed that the basketball player had only seen Prince a whopping nine times since his December 2016 birth.
The other woman? Reports of the ‘bribe’ come after Craig accused Kardashian (above November 2018) of being Thompson’s mistress while he was still in a relationship with her
Though things became tense between the former couple, Craig said that in the start of 2018 Thompson reached out, hoping to smooth out their relationship for the sake of their child.
Though things started out smoothly, Jordan said it soon became clear that Tristan was using the situation to control her personal life.
‘Tristan began requesting to FaceTime with Prince and even began to have Prince and I visit him while he was on the road traveling during the season so that he could spend more time with Prince,’ she explained, before saying: ‘This was short lived.’
Describing the dynamic, she said ‘Tristan and I remained friends for months, however, he eventually made it clear that he did not want me to “see” or date anyone. I could not agree to this. It became clear to me that his interest was never in Prince when I told him I no longer wanted this type of friendship with him and he became completely absent in Prince’s life.’
Thompson disputed much of Craig’s account, hitting back with claims that she has prevented him and his family from seeing the two-and-a-half year old.
Hitting out: Khloe Kardashian took to her Instagram story late Tuesday night, to address reports that she was Tristan Thompson’s mistress while the NBA player was dating the mother of his first child, Jordan Craig (Khloe and Tristan pictured in February last year)

Khloe’s heartfelt message in full
My truth is: I met Tristan because HE CHOSE to go on a blind date with me.
A mutual friend set us up. After going on some dates, Tristan told me that he had an ex that was pregnant.
Obviously, I was reluctant about us continuing to date or start a relationship.
He pleaded with me that the relationship was over long before we met. He had me talk with his most inner circle.’
He showed my physical p(r)oof (correspondence between the two) and had me on calls with his lawyers to prove his point,’ she continued.
His best friends, business associates and even his mother told me, him and his ex were broken up before we met.
This is my truth. The truth that I believed and trusted. If for any reason this is NOT in fact the truth, I am so completely and utterly sorry that TRISTAN and his inner circle would lie on something like this.
Truthfully, from the deepest parts of my soul I am sorry! I’m sorry any pain that has been created either way.
No woman deserves to go through anything like this! This is MY TRUTH.”
