KHLOE Kardashian's baby daddy Tristan Thompson has filed a gag order against the personal trainer he welcomed his third child with.
Maralee Nichols gave birth on December 5 after she and the NBA star reportedly had a months-long secret affair.
According to court documents seen by TMZ, Tristan has filed an emergency petition in Harris County, Texas, as he has asked a judge to issue a gag order in the case, which would prevent him and Maralee from speaking out about their case.
In the court documents Tristan claims Maralee has been doing interviews with the media, and accused her of leaking personal info on Instagram and other social media platforms.
Tristan believes Maralee is doing all this is "to achieve some sort of notoriety and gain for herself in this lawsuit."
The docs also revealed that the athlete wants a judge to force Maralee to hand over a $30k bond to make sure the LA based trainer has some money on the line if she breaks the confidentiality order.
All this comes after Maralee sued Tristan for paternal child support after she claimed they had conceived a baby on the night of his March 13th birthday.
Tristan was dating Khloe, 37, at the time – although they split in June after he "spent 30 minutes in a bedroom with three women" at a "wild" house party.

The fitness instructor requested child support as well as reimbursement for "medical expenses and pregnancy-related costs such as Lamaze classes, a doula, and prenatal vitamins."
In the court documents, Maralee has also asked that Tristan pay for costly items needed after the baby's birth, including "clothing, formula, and diapers."

In his response to Maralee's child support filing, the athlete admitted to having sex with her "several times" at a Houston hotel after they attended his birthday party together.
Tristan claimed he knew the encounter would lead to sex, though he asserted that was the only time they were "intimate."
However, Maralee's lawyers claimed that their affair began "five months" before March.
Tristan also allegedly offered Maralee $75,000 to stay quiet about their baby.
In the alleged messages, the Sacramento Kings player also claimed he will retire after this current season and he will be unemployed.
Due to his unemployment status, Tristan said he should be required to pay a smaller amount in child support.
Meanwhile, Khloe's mom, Kris Jenner, is said to be "demanding she cut ties with Tristan" amid the scandal.
"Khloe was shocked to her core when she found out," a source close to the star and her mom exclusively told The Sun.
The insider continued: "Khloe may now be saying they've been broken up since spring – but that's not the whole story.
"She had actually been giving Tristan 'one last chance' – he was getting therapy, and staying single and out of trouble and then they were going to see where they were at."
The source added: "… It's humiliating on so many levels. Kim and Kris aren't happy with Tristan and everyone will be surprised if they welcome him back into the family. If they do, it'll be for True's sake…"
Khloe and Tristan already share 3-year-old daughter True, and he is also a father to 4-year-old son Prince with ex Jordan Craig.
