Jordan Craig Alleges That Tristan Thompson’s Infidelity Caused “Serious Pregnancy Complications”
When Tristan Thompson was exposed for cheating on a heavily pregnant Khloé Kardashian last spring, social media dubbed the Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan “Third Trimester” Thompson. The title was meant to poke fun at the fact that the 28-year-old athlete has a history of recklessly cheating on his girlfriends when they’re at their most vulnerable state. Except, it wasn’t funny. Before the Canadian athlete joined the growing list of Black men romantically tied to a Kardashian, he was in a relationship with Jordan Craig. For years, rumors swirled that Thompson had abandoned a pregnant Craig to run with Khloé — something the reality star has always denied. However, recently obtained court documents reveal Craig’s side of the story and her claims are damning. According to Radar Online, documentation from the model’s November 2018 child support filing alleges that Tristan’s infidelity caused her a series of stress-related pregnancy complications.
Craig, who experienced fertility issues at the start of their family planning, stated that Thompson “encouraged me to exhaust every avenue we possibly could to start our family.” Unfortunately, his excitement was apparently short-lived, as she claims she discovered he was cheating just one month after learning of her pregnancy. She left the athlete and moved back to Los Angeles, but the two made up a short time later.
“Tristan insisted he would change for our family, and tried to get back together on numerous occasions,” she shared.
After a few more rounds of breaking up to make up, Craig discovered tabloid photos of the athlete “with one of the women I previously confronted him about, and whom Tristan had denied even knowing.”
“Their relationship went viral and everything took a turn for the worst,” Craig painfully recalled. “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.”
The constant drama took a toll on her health and doctors ultimately decided to place her on bedrest.
“This brought an enormous amount of negative, unwanted attention and stress into my life, and more critically, into my pregnancy,” she claimed. “My obstetrician ordered me to be on bed rest due to high levels of stress that eventually caused me to have serious pregnancy complications.”
Thankfully, Craig went on to deliver a healthy baby boy in December 2016 despite prior complications. Ironically, Tristan’s relationship with Khloé would go on to end in a similar fashion, but Jordan refused to rejoice in another woman’s pain.
“If you respect yourself and you respect others, you would never make light of the misfortune of anyone,” she wrote in an Instagram Story last year. “Nor would you feel indemnified when it comes at the expense of others.”
