I sincerely apologise to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately" he wrote on his IG stories.
"Khloe, you don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation my actions have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years" he continued.

What is Maralee Nichols Instagram?
There has been confusion over Maralee Nichols Instagram account.
Fans were shocked when the account @maraleenicole with a whopping 18.7k revealed photos of a newborn baby the account.
The account shared an alleged photo of Maralee pregnant, with a baby bump and a photo of her alleged child with Tristan.
While many fans believe this to be Maralee's account, other fans have claimed it is a fake account.
Apparently this is the *REAL* Maralee Nichols’ Instagram account and the baby is just a photo from the Google. She also wrote on her snap that she hasn’t given birth yet. We don’t know what to believe right now but whichever way the apple is diced or sliced, it’s a muddled mess! pic.twitter.com/mdxYk7YiqM— RoMane ✨🇯🇲 (@_romeko) December 5, 2021
It appears that there is no confirmation whether Maralee is running that Instagram account.
According to documents obtained by DailyMail, Nichols and Tristan's baby was conceived in Houston, Texas, during Thompson's 30th birthday celebrations in March.
At the time, Tristan was still dating Khloe Kardashian. The Good American founder eventually ended things with Tristan in July after photos showed him 'dishevelled' after leaving a room with three women during a Beverly Hills party.
