“We did not have a serious ongoing relationship. We saw each other sporadically between December 2020 and March 13, 2021,” he wrote. “[Nichols] told me that she had been involved with other athletes and understood the limitations of our relationship; to wit, that we might see each other on a sporadic basis for consensual sex only.”
“We did not have any dates in the traditional sense at any time; there were no dining at restaurants, going to movies, traveling or any other indicia of a normalized relationship,” he said. “There was only Snapchats of ‘where’ and ‘what time’ we would hook up and what hotels would be used.”
“We never had any telephone calls, emails, nor did we exchange text messages. We only communicated via the Snapchat application. My username on Snapchat has always been ‘blkjesus00,” he added.
“I was never notified that [Nichols] saved a message from me,” he claimed. “[Nichols] has attached to her paper many Snapchat messages which she claims are ‘real’ and represent ‘real’ communications between us.”
“However, I strongly contend that these messages have been fabricated by [Nichols]” Thompson went on. “It is not difficult for an individual to manufacture such messages by using two other cell phones, one that has been designated ‘TT’ which was not my username and the second phone which is hers.”
