Sydney Chase, the model who says she had a fling with Tristan Thompson, has hired famed lawyer Gloria Allred after Thompson said she lied about their affair behind Khloe Kardashian’s back.
Allred’s hiring came after Thompson, 30, hired high-powered attorney Marty Singer (who also works with Kardashian) and took legal action against Chase, 23, in firing off a cease-and-desist letter.
‘Chase is outraged at what she regards as false statements that have been made about her in the media by Tristan Thompson’s representatives,’ the legendary women’s rights attorney said in a statement obtained by The Sun. ‘She has retained my law firm … to represent her and to conduct a full investigation which she believes will substantiate the relationship between her and Tristan Thompson.’

Allred said that amid challenges made to Chase ‘to reveal evidence of their relationship,’ her team ‘would be willing to share evidence that Sydney has given us, provided that Mr. Thompson will make himself available in person to answer my questions and provide us with documents that we request,’ the outlet reported.
Allred said that if the Boston Celtics star ‘has nothing to hide, then we would expect that he will make himself available for questioning by me and that he will voluntarily provide the documents,’ adding that Chase is ‘willing to present at this meeting to answer questions and provide documents.’
Allred also invited Kardashian, 36, to attend the Q&A session as she ‘believes that the truth will emerge through this process.’
She said that pending results of the investigation, her firm would ‘advise Sydney regarding her legal options.’

Making claims: Khloe Kardashian’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson was allegedly last in touch with ‘fling’ Sydney Chase (pictured) the day after daughter True’s 3rd birthday on April 12
The controversy erupted last week when Thompson dubbed Chase a ‘liar’ amid her allegations the pair had a fling amid his relationship with Khloe.
Chase took to Instagram Stories last week conforming that she received the letter from Thompson’s reps, saying she was ‘moving forward with the truth & am choosing not to comply,’ adding, ‘I will not be called a liar.’
Chase said the last time she spoke to Thompson was a day after his daughter True’s lavish third birthday party in April.

Sydney first claimed she ‘hooked up’ with the NBA star behind Khloe’s back on The No Jumper podcast; the episode that featured Sydney has now been edited according to host Adam John Grandmaison, after receiving a cease-and-desist letter from Tristan’s attorney.

Her version of events: Sydney claimed she did not receive the legal letter on last week, then claimed it had been sent to an email she no longer uses
‘Yeah, we got a cease-and-desist and deleted it,’ Grandmaison told PageSix in an interview on Wednesday. ‘Honestly, I wouldn’t have posted it in the first place if I knew it was going to mess up a relationship.’
The episode was initially deleted and then re-uploaded with inflammatory remarks edited out, where Chase claimed she’d had had sexual relations with Thompson.
Last week, Chase also alleged in a TikTok video that she was last contacted by Thompson the day after Khloe tossed their daughter True a lavish third birthday bash on April 12 in Los Angeles.
Chase explained the situation further and doubled down on her claims, after alleging that she’d had a fling with Tristan in January, claiming the NBA star told her he was single.
Sydney first made the claims in a video posted by Hollywood Unlocked in April, saying she allegedly had a sexual experience with him in January this year and alleged that he told her he was single.
‘Sydney, how was Tristan Thompson’s d**k?’ the woman in question is asked in a crass exchange, as she replies: ‘It was a peek-a-boo d**k but baby it was good.’
Sydney then alleged that Tristan told her he was single, saying: ‘I did not know he was in a relationship. He told me he was not in a relationship anymore.’
She claimed that the pair have ‘hung out’ on multiple occasions.
The Instagram video that contains the accusation contains the headline: ‘Woman claims she hooked up with Tristan Thompson while he was still with Khloé Kardashian.’

On Tuesday, Vivica A. Fox has weighed into the relationship drama by saying: ‘It’s time for Khloe to stop being a damn doormat for Tristan.’
Speaking on the latest episode of Cocktails With Queens, actress Vivica did not mince her words as she gave her two cents on the hot topic.
‘First of all, you are a Kardashian, girl. I’m sure it’s plenty of brothers lining up. They all just wanna take a trip, you know what I mean,’ Vivica added. ‘At this point, do you really want this kind of man to be a parental father figure to your children? The fact that he can’t even respect mama? What foundation are you on, period?’
In March this year, Khloe appeared to confirm that she was fully back on with Tristan, after posting a gushing message for his 30th birthday, to which he replied: ‘I thank God for the beautiful and loving woman you are.’
However, this is the latest in a long line of cheating allegations that have been lobbied against the sportsman, since he started his relationship with the youngest of the Kardashian sisters.

The pair were first linked when they were spotted leaving Bootsy Bellows together in August 2016, and Khloe later revealed how they were introduced by a mutual friend. They confirmed their relationship in a 2016 Instagram post and she was pregnant a year later with Tristan’s baby.
The same year, TMZ released surveillance video showing a man who appeared to be Tristan kissing another woman which was the first sign of trouble between the pair.
Khloé gave birth to their daughter True Thompson on April 12, 2018, and later appeared to address his alleged infidelity around the time of her birth.
‘Regardless of what Tristan did to me, I was never going to take that moment away from True or Tristan. She should not be punished for his actions. He is her father and they both deserve to love one another as deeply as they possibly can,’ she wrote.
In 2019, the couple suffered one of their biggest setbacks when reports surfaced that Tristan had been spotted canoodling with Kylie Jenner’s longtime BFF Jordyn Woods, sending shockwaves through the Kardashian family.
