Tristan Thompson took to his Instagram stories on Monday to confess that a paternity test had proven him to be the father of a newborn son that fitness model Maralee Nichols birthed in December.

The confession also served as an apology to his girlfriend Khloé Kardashian, whom he was dating when he became involved with Nichols, and whom he has cheated on multiple times over the course of their relationship.

Regardless of the penned statement, the Sacramento Kings basketball player is now getting some pushback from Joey Bada$$ who ultimately told him to stop being dishonest with himself and his romantic partners.

“Tristian Thompson gotta stop being a sorry ass n-gga,” the New York rapper wrote on Twitter. “Tell Khloe you’re a fucking gyalist and you need more than one woman. Straight up. What’s so hard about being honest with our women fellas? Fuck this western bullshit. Relationships should be expansive and beneficial for all. 
“Most of us have been in polyamorous relationships our whole lives. The only difference is we weren’t honest about it. But if you’ve ever been sexually involved with someone non-exclusively, guess what, you’re polyamorous. Unconditional love means you love with no CONDITIONS. Most of our minds are way too conditioned to even love freely.”

Thompson closed out his statement by saying that he had the utmost respect for Khloé Kardashian. “Khloé, you don’t deserve this,” he wrote. “You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you.”

Aside from giving dating advice, Joey Bada$$ has been dropping a lot of other words of advice lately.

During the REVOLT Summit in Atlanta, Georgia in November, the 26-year-old shared tips for success when it came to cultivating a close-knit circle of trusted peers.

“Your circle is very important. However, I don’t think that you should be fully focused on only hanging out with people smarter than you,” Joey Bada$$ said. “Because we all have a duty here, we all have a responsibility. I forgot who it was that I was watching, but they had an interesting concept on this, and it was basically like the 33 percent rule.

He added that, “33 percent of the time, you should be hanging out with people who are smarter than you. The other 33 percent, you should be hanging out with people who are on your level. And the last 33 percent, you should be hanging out with people you’re smarter than.

“This way, you’re evenly distributing your talents. You’re learning and educating at the same time. Not only are you learning and educating, but for the group in the middle, you guys get to push each other, you get to challenge each other.”
