Tristan Thompson’s ex girlfriend Jordan Craig said he bribed her not to date other men while he was with Khloe Kardashian. The payment was in 6 figures.
Tristan Thompson’s ex speaks out
RadarOnline reported that Tristan paid Craig $112,000. This is was after she purchased her home in LA in 2017. The payment was to stop her from “dating anybody or talking to anybody”
Craig told Thompson’s lawyer Peter Lauzon that the money was a bribe. Additionally, she said that Tristan told her he “would help me if I wasn’t, like, dating anybody or talking to anybody, and that I would have to come see him.”
The issue came up during a deposition in regards to Craig’s lawsuit against Tristan for child support. Craig said she accepted the money for her son Prince, who was born 4 months after Tristan started dating Khloe. Additionally, she also used the money for payments for her LA home.
Jordan told Tristan’s attorney she still needs “help” with the mortgage on the house. Tristan responded to her statement, telling lawyers, “No one ever said about not see or date anyone. All I please said is, if you’re a single woman, I wanted to request her not to have random men around my child.”
During the deposition, Tristan’s lawyer asked Jordan why she recently spent $20,000 on a pool in her LA house. He said, “To squeeze my client for more money so you can afford another $16,000 castle for your kid.” Jordan said she and Tristan together agreed to make a pool for their son, who loves swimming.
Met him 9 times since his birth?
During the deposition, Jordan also talked about Tristan as a father. Recently, reports suggested that Tristan had seen Prince only 9 times since his birth. Jordan said in 2018 Tristan made a lot of effort with Prince. She added that it eventually became a controlling dynamic that worked against her.
She said, “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. This was short lived.”
She added, “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.”
Tristan has said Jordan is lying about these claims. In addition, he said she stopped him from seeing his 2 and a half year old son.
Jordan: pregnancy became a “gossip headline”
Recently, Khloe also came forward to address claims about her and Tristan’s relationship timeline. She has often got accusations of breaking up Tristan’s relationship with Jordan. Additionally, she became named his “mistress” filed by Jordan in November, saying she moved to California from Cleveland when she found out about Khloe.
Jordan said that after her move, Tristan “tried to get back together on numerous occasions”. Additionally, she said he promised her that “he would change for our family.” She also said that her move was triggered by his affairs. This seems to be a reference to Khloe. Jordan said she saw his pictures “with one of the women I previously confronted him about, and whom Tristan had denied even knowing.”
Jordan added, “Their relationship went viral and everything took a turn for the worst. Every day several articles were published worldwide mocking my new unfortunate reality. And my pregnancy would now become one of the most popular gossip headlines due to the woman Tristan was now publicly dating during my pregnancy.”
Additionally, she said, “This brought an enormous amount of negative, unwanted attention and stress into my life, and more critically, into my pregnancy. My obstetrician ordered me to be on bed rest due to high levels of stress that eventually caused me to have serious pregnancy complications.”
Khloe: the mistress?
Khloe defended herself on Instagram, writing, “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.”
She added, “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. [Tristan] had me talk with his most inner circle. He showed my physical proof (correspondence between the two) and had me on calls with his lawyers to prove his point.”
“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 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!” she added.
She concluded, “I pray my truth is in-fact that. Lord knows I pray but now, I really don’t know what to believe. Truthfully, from the deepest parts of my soul I am sorry!… I’m sorry for any pain that has been created either way. No woman deserves to go through anything like this! This is my TRUTH.”
Khloe and Tristan have a 1 year old daughter named True together.
