Tristan Thompson’s rumored flame Sydney Chase has retained Gloria Allred, a well-known solicitor after he called her a “liar” during his own legal representation.
The NBA star has said that the 23-year-old model “lied” about having a months-long romantic relationship with him when he was back with his on-again, off-again paramour Khloé Kardashian.
Thompson, 30, who has a daughter with Kardashian, True, hired a legal team earlier this month who said there was “no merit” to Chase’s claims of a sexual affair with the Boston Celtics player.
He then issued a cease-and-desist order, which CN has seen, alleging that Chase made “numerous false and defamatory claims” about Thompson on the “No Jumper” podcast, including an unprecedented argument about his manhood.
The letter to Chase, written by Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer, begins, “It is obvious that you are a liar,” before going on to say, “Your argument that you had a relationship with Mr. Thompson is pure fiction.”
“The allegedly existing messages are also fictional, and they put words in my client’s mouth that he never said and that contradict his thoughts and feelings. This is false and defamatory.”
Now, the Instagram model has followed suit and retained Allred, a well-known women’s rights attorney.
“Our client, Sydney Chase, is outraged at what she regards as false allegations made about her in the media by Tristan Thompson’s representatives,” Allred said in a statement seen by CN.
“She has hired my law firm, Allred, Maroko & Goldberg, to represent her and conduct a thorough investigation into the relationship between her and Tristan Thompson,” says the source.
“Mr. Thompson’s members have asked her to reveal details of their relationship,” the powerful legal expert added. We are happy to share the evidence that Sydney has provided us if Mr. Thompson will meet with me in person to answer my questions and provide us with the documentation that we have requested.
“We will expect Mr. Thompson to make himself available for interrogation by me and to freely supply the documents if he has nothing to hide. Sydney is available to attend this meeting and answer questions as well as provide documents.
“Khloé Kardashian is invited to come. We are certain that the facts will emerge as a result of this review. When we’ve finished our investigation, we’ll let Sydney know what her legal options are.”
Chase also stated on Instagram that she was not a liar and that she would not agree to Thompson’s attorney’s letter.
She wrote on her Instagram Story, “I finally got the cease and desist hours after I made my online message.”
“It was originally sent to an email address that I no longer use. However, I’m sticking to my guns and refusing to comply with the facts. She concluded, “I would not be called a liar.”
“Yes, I obviously do,” Chase said when asked by CN if she had proof of their supposed affair. “However, this is now a legal matter that lawyers can handle.” “Thank you.”
