Tristan Thompson is a Total Deadbeat Dad, Court Documents Allege

by at .  Updated at .

Tristan Thompson is a dedicated rebounder on the basketball court.

The Cleveland Cavaliers power forward has made a living by hustling all over the place for loose balls and errant field goal attempts.

According to newly-released court documents, however, Thompson is nearly the exact opposite as a father.

His first baby mama, Jordan Craig, claims Tristan isn't anything close to a dedicated parent.

Back in November of 2018, Craig filed legal papers as part of her declaration against Thompson in her battle for child support.

These documents have been obtained by Radar Online and Craig states in them that Thompson saw the couple's son, Prince, one time in 2016.

And four times in 2017.

And four more times in 2018.

That's a total of just nine times in two years, and Craig adds that Tristan was only alone with his child during one of these visits.

“I have given Tristan almost two years to step up and assume the fatherly role for our son. As set forth below in detail, he has failed to do so,” Craig wrote in her declaration to the court.

She added at the time:

“I cannot force Tristan to be a father. I have been and will continue to be the sole caretaker of our son. It is my pleasure to care for him daily and tend to his needs.

"I only ask that the court order Tristan to pay child support in the amount he is legally required to under the guidelines."

Tristan categorized Craig's calculations as "inaccurate."

In the end, however, he agreed to pay her $40,000 per month in child support - and also was ordered to pay Craig $200,000 for retroactive child support within 10 days of signing the May 14, 2019 settlement.

Craig and Thompson dated back in 2016.

But he then left her for Khloe Kardashian, someone with whom Thompson had been sleeping during his romance with Craig.

She also made this accusation in other court documents.

Craig has even alleged the very public tryst gave her “serious pregnancy complications,” and she was forced by a doctor to go on bed rest.

For her part, Khloe has often trashed Thompson as a boyfriend because, come on... the guy cheated on her left and right!

But she's always made a point of defending Tristan as a father to their daughter, True.

Could this be because Thompson has learned his lesson and is truly interested in being a part of their kid's life?

Or could Khloe just be covering for her ex because she doesn't want True to grow up and read horrible headlines about one of her parents?
