TRISTAN Thompson showed off his $900 Louis Vuitton bag amid his baby mama Maralee Nichols' claims that he won't pay child support.
The 30-year-old flaunted his expensive designer gear while modeling in an advert with his Chicago Bulls teammates.
Tristan wore red cargo pants, a leather vest, Converse sneakers and proudly held his luxury bag in his hand.
The athlete – who recently split from baby mama Khloe Kardashian – has faced backlash in the past for his displays of wealth.
He was slammed last month for posing in a private jet and boasting about his Chicago Bulls deal.
Critics ripped the athlete as Maralee recently claimed that Tristan refuses to pay child support for their baby son Theo.
The fitness instructor, 31, also alleged that Tristan has made no attempt to meet their two-month-old, who was born on December 1.
Maralee's representative claimed Tristan has "done nothing" to support his son – despite reportedly being ordered to pay her $40,000 a month.

“Despite news reports stating otherwise, Tristan Thompson has done nothing to support his son,” Harvey Englander told Page Six.
“He has not made any attempt to meet their son nor has he provided any financial assistance.”
Maralee gave birth to a baby boy on December 1 after months of her and Tristan battling in court.
She filed a lawsuit seeking financial support from the Canadian sports star and claimed that she and Tristan conceived the child on his birthday back in March.
At the time, Khloe was "exclusively" dating Tristan – who she had previously forgiven for past infidelity scandals.
The basketball player initially claimed that his relationship with Maralee was a one-night hookup initially, before admitting they met up several times for sex.
He said in legal documents that they had a four-month affair, from December 2020 to March 2021.
Last month, Tristan admitted he is the father of Maralee's baby son and apologized to Khloe for "humiliating" her.
"Today, paternity test results revealed that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established, I looked forward to amicably raising our son," he wrote on Instagram.
"I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.
In the following Story, he apologized to Khloe and said: "You don't deserve this. You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.
"You don't deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions have certainly not lined up with the way I view you."
He concluded: "I have the utmost respect and love for you, regardless of what you may think. Again I am so incredibly sorry."
