Earlier this month, Thompson confirmed that he is the father of a child with Maralee Nichols, who reportedly filed a lawsuit against the NBA player in December 2021 for child support.
“Dude is corny for that, but it’s all good,” Odom told TMZ. "I haven't been fortunate enough to reach out to her. She's gonna be all right. She's a strong girl," he added. When the former Los Angeles Lakers player was asked what advice he would give to Kardashian, he shared: "First, I would give her a hug because I haven’t seen her in a long time -- just to be strong, keep her faith in God and be strong for her daughter."
Odom revealed that he hopes to reconnect and talk to her one day as friends, stating that "she is a good person and deserves the world."
