The NBA star has hit back at Kimberly Alexander's claims that he is the father of her child.

The Bolton Celtics basketball player is seeking $100k in damages, plus additional costs.
Tristan's has encountered some "issues" that need corrections in his request for a default judgment. His motion has been denied.
On May 14th last year, Tristan took a paternity test after Alexander claimed he was the father of her son.
Khloé Kardashian, 36, and Tristan, who have been dating on-and-off since 2016, sent a cease and desist letter to Kimberly.
In the letter, the then-couple asked her to "immediately stop defaming them with malicious defamatory lies and specious fabrications."
Prior cease and desist letter was sent, Tristan allegedly prepared Khloé and let her know the situation, even though paternity test confirmed he was not the child's father.
Tristan revealed to Khloe that he did "have sex" with Kimberly, which was reportedly a "one-night stand with the woman sometime during his rookie season in 2011-2012", meaning it would've happened before they got together.
