Khloé Kardashian and ex Tristan Thompson have sent a cease-and-desist letter to a woman who claims the Cleveland Cavaliers player is the father of her child.
This week, blog Gossip of the City published alleged documents from LB Genetics — a DNA testing facility in Santa Ana, California — that suggest Thompson took a paternity test this January to determine whether he fathered a child with Kimberly Alexander, who at the time was represented by The Bloom Firm, a law office owned by Lisa Bloom.
The website also published an Instagram post, possibly from Alexander, featuring a screenshot of LB Genetics’ website promoting one of their doctor’s past appearance on Kardashian family’s show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” In the alleged post, the social media user accuses LB Genetics of “trying to sabotage a DNA test with Tristan Thompson regarding my son,” and appears to suggest that the Kardashians somehow played a role in the test results.
Additionally, the outlet posted alleged screenshots between Thompson and Alexander, as well as an alleged email that Alexander purportedly received from Bloom, which suggests Thompson agreed to do a second paternity test. The tabloid also published an alleged letter that Bloom sent to Alexander terminating their work relationship, as the firm could not resolve Alexander’s claims.
On Wednesday, “E! News” reported that Kardashian and Thompson’s lawyer, Marty Singer, contacted Alexander demanding that she “immediately stop defaming [Kardashian and Thompson] with malicious defamatory lies and specious fabrications.”
Singer also confirmed that Thompson took the initial paternity test, which came out negative, and agreed to take a second one, only from an AABB-accredited lab.
“After it was indisputably established by a paternity test performed by one of the most reputable labs that Mr. Thompson is not your child’s father, we thought that would be the end of this,” Singer wrote.
He added, “Instead, you have continued to spread outrageous lies about my clients, including ridiculous fictional conspiracy theories that you conjured up claiming that my clients supposedly somehow falsified the paternity test results since members of the Kardashian family had previously used the same trustworthy lab.”
Singer also accuses Alexander of “wanting 15 minutes of fame” by “spreading these lies about my clients.”
“It has been proven that Mr. Thompson is not the father of your child and we demand that you stop claiming that he is, and that he and Ms. Kardashian somehow falsified the paternity test results,” Singer added. “It is defamatory per se to falsely assert that someone is a deadbeat dad who allegedly does not support his children, and to falsely accuse my clients of faking paternity test results.”
At the end of the letter, Singer threatens legal action against Alexander if she continues “defaming my clients on social media.”
“This is an extremely serious matter. If you disregard this letter’s demands, you do so at your peril since you will soon find yourself in court facing multi-million-dollar claims while attempting to defend your indefensible misconduct,” Singer warned.
On Thursday, Bloom confirmed she was Alexander’s previous attorney, telling Page Six, “I did previously represent her and I wish her the best.”
Kardashian and Thompson — who broke up in 2019 after the athlete was accused of infidelity — share daughter True, 2. He is also the father to son Prince Thompson, 3, with ex Jordan Craig.
