It’s been some time since we’ve heard anything about Tristan Thompson’s routine infidelity, but now, rumour has it that the Canadian athlete has another baby on the way – and it’s not with Khloe Kardashian.
According to TMZ, the 30-year-old is facing allegations from a Houston, Texas personal trainer who claims that she became pregnant following her brief fling with Thompson. Maralee Nichols says that she’s due to give birth to a baby boy today, December 3rd, and documents obtained by The Daily Mail state that the child was conceived in H-town back in March, when the father of two was in town celebrating his birthday.
In the documents, Thompson admits to sleeping with Nichols multiple times at a hotel. Prior to their meet-up, she had promised him a “birthday surprise,” which he reportedly was aware meant birthday sex. The gossip site notes that, if his alleged baby mama’s timeline is correct, then the Sacramento Kings player was still publicly in a relationship with Kardashian while sleeping with another woman.
The one thing that seems to be unclear is exactly how long their relationship lasted. Nichols claims that she and the father of two were together on-and-off for five months before their March hook-up, while Thompson says it was just a one night stand.
TMZ reports that Kardashian and her baby daddy split up back in May, but following the troubling news, she’s shared a cryptic quote to her Instagram story. “I just don’t have time for negative energy and even when I do, I still don’t,” the text post reads.
At this time, Nichols is legally asking Thompson to cover her pregnancy-related medical expenses, as well as pay child support. Check back with HNHH later for more updates on the Brampton native’s third baby mama allegations.

LeBron James had a proud moment this week after witnessing his youngest son, 14-year-old Bryce, dunk for the first time during warmups for Sierra Canyon High School.
After he was cleared to compete following multiple negative COVID-19 tests, LeBron James attended Sierra Canyon's game on Thursday night, where he watched his youngest son rattle the rim for the very first time. During warmups, freshman Bryce James got enough height to land his first-ever slam dunk, which got him (and everybody else on the court) hyped up. Immediately after the feat, Bryce dapped up some of his teammates and looked over at his father to make sure he had caught the moment. Judging from his excited yells, LeBron definitely saw his son reach the rim.
"Ayyyyeeeeeee!!!!!" exclaimed the Los Angeles Lakers star.
Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesBryce took off on both feet and dunked the ball home with one hand. Considering the fact that he's only 14-years-old, this has to be the first of many slams for young Bryce.
This comes following LeBron's confusing week after entering the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocol. He expressed that he thought something was "fishy" after being restricted from playing but after testing negative a few times, he was allowed to get back on the court.
Watch the proud moment for LeBron and Bryce below, and let us know what you think of Bryce's first dunk ever.

Big Boi says that he has "a lot" of unreleased music with André 3000 but didn't give any specifics about whether fans can expect the collaborations to see the light of day.
The legendary rapper was asked by The Guardian how many songs and albums he's got in the vault with André, to which he reportedly “smiled from ear to ear and nodded enthusiastically.”
“Yeah, boy!” he remarked. “There is a lot of unreleased music around here, man.”
As for whether Big Boi and André will ever release new music together, he answered: “You would have to talk to the Lord Jesus. Only he knows.”
Frederick M. Brown / Getty ImagesLater in the interview, Big Boi also revealed his favorite artists of all time, including Bob Marley, Kate Bush, and more.
“I’ll give you my top artists of all time: 1a is Bob Marley, 1b is Kate Bush, and then right behind her is N.W.A.," Big Boi said. "So, that tells you where I am at with it. As far as MCing, we listen to everything from A Tribe Called Quest to 8 Ball and MJG, the 2 Live Crew. UGK. MC Ren was one of the hardest motherfuckers ever! Definitely E-40.”
Big Boi's The Big Sleepover is due out on December 10.

Two weeks ago, Brent Faiyaz posted a grainy picture to his Instagram alongside the caption "WASTELAND12.03.21," leading his fans to believe that the elusive Maryland singer would be delivering an album this Friday. Yet with the arrival of New Music Friday, his supporters quickly noticed that there is no trace of a new project from Faiyaz, let alone anything titled "Wasteland," but the Fuck The World artist did end up releasing a new single titled "MERCEDES."
A cautionary tale of sorts, "MERCEDES" finds Brent Faiyaz imploring women to think twice before pursuing a romance with him, as the superficial benefits that may come with it are drastically outweighed by the drama that will undoubtedly plague their relationship. Check out the visualizer for Brent Faiyaz's brutally honest new single, and then let us know in the comments if you're feeling "MERCEDES."
You don’t really wanna be my lady (you don’t, you don’t)
You know it’s more than just driving Mercedes (more than mercedes)
These hoes gon call & drive you crazy (they gon drive you crazy)
They just tryna fuck & have my baby
My block too hot to have a lady (my block too hot)
All these detectives stay investigating (investigating)
Play it smart no hesitating (no hesitation)
If they can’t get to me they’ll try my baby

Harry Fraud has a way about him, always managing to get the best out of the artists he works with. The storied producer has officially released his collaborative EP with the late Lil Peep, showing the emo rapper's versatility over jazzy beats.
The project was announced a couple of days ago as Lil Peep and Harry Fraud's text messages from early 2017 were posted to Peep's Instagram account, showing how excited they both were over the new music. It has taken a while for the songs to surface but they have been released posthumously as the HIGH FASHION EP.
"Gus met Harry when he was home in New York for Christmas in December 2016 / January 2017," explains the caption on Peep's page. "Gus was going to fly back to Los Angeles a couple of days after New Year’s Eve, but he got word that Harry wanted to get into the studio with him, so he decided to stay. He was incredibly excited and honored to be able to work with the producer that he admired so much. The sound of the two songs that they made together over two nights in the studio (Choose & Living Rooms) are very unique. No other songs of his have the same vibe, the same feeling. Gus and Harry had planned to call their project HIGH FASHION. The third song, 'Old Me,' is a song Gus originally wrote in 2015 that Harry had an impassioned interest in working on and reproducing. I can tell you with 100% certainty that Gus would be proud and honored that Harry had brought 'Old Me' to life for us all to enjoy."
Listen to the new EP below and let us know what you think. Long Live Lil Peep.

If you follow 50 Cent on Instagram, you know that the rapper has no trouble using the platform to speak his mind, even if some of his comments get him in trouble from time to time. Most recently, Fif is facing some heat following the comments he made about “Like A Virgin” singer Madonna’s unmissable thirst traps.
The 63-year-old dropped off the carousel of sultry snapshots on November 25th, revealing in the caption that the app had initially deleted them due to a small part of her nipple being exposed. “It is still astounding to me that we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman’s body to be shown except a nipple,” she wrote beneath the edited re-post.
Scott Gries/Getty ImagesWhile many of the pictures show Madonna laying around wearing black lingerie, one of them gave followers an up close and personal look at her behind, scantily clad and poking out from beneath the bed. The “I Get Money” recording artist shared the photo in question to his own page, writing, “Yo this is the funniest shit LOL.”
“That’s Madonna under the bed trying to do ‘Like A Virgin’ at 63. She shot out, if she don’t get her old ass up. LMFAO,” he continued. A few days later, the “Material Girl” clapped back at 50, calling him out for his hateful comments. “I guess your new career is getting attention by trying to humiliate others on social media. The least elevated choice you could make as an artist and an adult.”
Following Madonna’s response, the New York-born star logged back into IG to share his thoughts. “I must have hurt Madonna’s feelings,” he told his followers on December 2nd. “She went and dug up a old MTV, TRL photo from ‘03. Ok I’m sorry I did not intend to hurt your feelings. I don’t benefit from this in [any way], I said what I thought when I saw the picture because of where I had seen it before. I hope you accept my apology.”
The rapper’s Instagram shows that the apology post has since been taken down, but not before The Shade Room grabbed some screenshots. Check them out below.

On Sunday, November 28, Virgil Abloh passed away from a years-long battle with cancer, and days later, the world is still coming to terms with the loss one of its greatest creatives. Tributes have continued to pour in from the Hip-Hop community, and now, Lupe Fiasco has come forward with a song that pays homage to his fellow Chicagoan.
Lupe's latest track, titled "V.F.," is currently only available as a video on his social media, and it features both Virgil's thoughts and Lupe's rhymes over footage from the star-studded memorial Louis Vuitton show earlier this week. In the intro, Virgil Abloh speaks about embracing one's creativity and inhibitions, and Lupe follows his late friend — who worked closely with the Drill Music In Zion creator on his 2020 EP HOUSE — with a heartfelt verse that references everything from his signature designs to his impact on popular culture.
While fans wait to see if Lupe Fiasco's new song gets uploaded to YouTube and other DSPs, you can check it out for yourself below. Rest in peace, Virgil Abloh.
V for vector, F for file
If you rearrange file, what that give you? Yeah, wow
Wish I could give you that now
All on the side of you soul/sole in your signature handstyle
Virgil forever, we visit the man child
A tailor sits down to make his own suit from the tie to his boots
The thread is breath and the fabric is the youth
Make his own ties they only made us a noose
On black, yeah
The cuff is all of us and the buttons are the truth
Even his caps are the facts
My nigga, can you believe that?

Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Timothée Chalamet, and more have shared positive text messages they received from Virgil Abloh prior to his passing on November 28. The New York Times published the previously private texts and direct messages on Thursday.
Samuel Ross, a British designer who worked under Abloh, says that the messages “reflect the character and responsibility Virgil took on to lead a global community. Alongside the top-line perspective he held, he was able to still make time for the important micros of life.”
Julien M. Hekimian / Getty Images“TO THE MAXXXXX,” Abloh once texted Jenner. “KEEP NATURALLY SLAYING IT GRACEFULLY.”
In a message to Hadid, Abloh wrote: “YOUR AN ANGEL. Not even of this earth. You walk thru a door and we all smile. All energy from your heart. In this shitty world it means the most to cruise thru it with the real ones. You shine light and actually make the world a better place. I’ll know you in 30 years from now and we’ll laugh at the last 5.”
“A bottle of tequila and the Cudi album on 12," Abloh told Chalamet.
Other messages from Abloh were shared by Cole Bennett, Sean Wotherspoon, Juelz Santana, and more.

YoungBoy Never Broke Again is very much a lone wolf. While he operates his Never Broke Again label with artists including Quando Rondo, NoCap, Rjae, P Yungin, and more, the Baton Rouge-raised rapper has proven over the years that he enjoys his alone time, usually coming through with featureless albums and mixtapes. When he does choose to collaborate with somebody, it's generally with an artist that's signed to him.
Given his troubling legal situation over the last few years, the public hasn't gotten too many chances to hear from YoungBoy in official interviews, so when the 22-year-old music superstar spoke for hours in a Clubhouse room with DJ Akademiks this week, the moment was very newsworthy. We've covered a few angles from their conversation already and now, we're focusing on the answers YoungBoy provided when he was asked if he listens to other current rappers, including Polo G, 21 Savage, Lil Baby, and Yungeen Ace.
Unsurprisingly, YoungBoy answered that, no, he doesn't listen to them.
Paras Griffin/Getty Images"You listen to Polo G?" asked DJ Akademiks.
"Fuck no," replied YoungBoy. "You talkin' crazy, you playin'."
"Man, I'm just asking, man," innocently said Ak before leading into his next question. "Like,  Savage. Savage is my n***a. He dope."
"Fuck no!" said YoungBoy.
"What about Yungeen Ace?" asked Ak.
After giving that one some thought, he went on to answer the exact same thing, uttering, "Fuck no. Shit, no."
"Baby?" questioned Ak, referring to Lil Baby.
"No," calmly responded YB.
Cooper Neill/Getty ImagesIt seems as though YoungBoy Never Broke Again might only listen to his own music. Do you think his sound is so unique because he doesn't listen to anybody else?
Listen to the clip below to hear his responses.
