The Boston Celtics basketball player has been granted a default judgment in his legal battle against paternity accuser after she failed to respond to his lawsuit.

AceShowbiz - Tristan Thompson has been granted a $52,901.75 (£37,885) default judgement in his libel lawsuit against paternity accuser Kimberly Alexander.

The Boston Celtics basketball star - the father of Khloe Kardashian's daughter True, three, and son Prince, 4, with ex Jordan Craig - sued Alexander last year (20) to stop her from continuing to claim he is her son's biological dad, after DNA test results came back negative twice.

Thompson initially requested $100,000 (£72,000) in damages, blaming the controversy for costing him various endorsement deals, but Alexander failed to respond to the suit, meaning that the sportsman was awarded a default ruling in his favour.

And despite his request for more money in damages, he has been awarded $52,000 - due to a lack of specific evidence to support his claim of lost opportunities - $50,000 (£35,800) in general damages and $2,901.95 (£2,078) in costs.

The formal judgement in the case is expected 26 July (21) and Alexander insisted the case has not been finalised as she posted on her Instagram Story, "Um why are people jumping for joy when it's obviously another court date."

Referencing the recent claims that Thompson's infidelity had led to another split from Khloe, she added, "Oh maybe cause of cheating rumours they got excited to post it on tmz."

Meanwhile, Khloe previously threatened to sue Kimberly Alexander if the woman didn't stop harassing and defaming her. "You put words in her mouth that she never said and that she wouldn't say. You faked the whole thing. And you have now publicly admitted it," Khloe said in her legal notice.
