Tristan Thompson’s ex Jordan Craig claims the NBA star is behind on child support payments and owes her nearly a quarter of a million dollars for their 6-year-old son, Prince.

Craig, 32, said in a declaration filed in a Los Angeles court last month and obtained by the Daily Mail Monday that Thompson, also 32, has been making “either partial payments or missing child support payments altogether” since November 2022.

He allegedly owes her $224,000.

The outlet reported in August that Thompson and Craig had reached an agreement in April 2019 that he would fork over a monthly stipend of $40,000.

At the time, the athlete was making $17.7 million a year playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers and had only one other child: 5-year-old daughter True, whom he shares with ex Khloé Kardashian.

Thompson went on to welcome son Theo with fling Maralee Nichols — to whom he pays $10,000 per month in child support — in December 2021 and son Tatum with Kardashian, 39, in July 2022.

In her filing, Craig included a list of payments made over the 10-month period that appear to show Thompson sent her $20,000 in November, paid in full in December and sent her nothing in January.

From February to July, he made six payments of $14,500, and in August, he sent her $29,000, according to her declaration.

Thompson rejoined the Cavaliers earlier this year after going on to play for the Boston Celtics, the Sacramento Kings, the Indiana Pacers, the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Craig is now asking the court to withhold the baller’s Cavaliers income in the amount of $80,000 per month, adding that she wants the payments “to stay in effect until the arrears are satisfied.”

“It is my belief that Tristan signed a ‘veteran’s minimum’ contract with the Cavaliers that pays him $2.7 million per year,” Craig claimed of Thompson’s new agreement with the team.

“The $80,000 request is certainly less than half of his monthly salary.”

Reps for Thompson did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

Earlier this month, Jordan’s sister, Kai Craig, publicly accused the notorious cheater of neglecting Prince.

“It has been so hard to refrain from speaking up, and out of respect for my sister’s privacy. I haven’t for over 7 years, but this is just too much,” Kai wrote in a lengthy Instagram statement.

“It’s so painful to see how Tristan can find the time to do these nice things for others but can’t seem to show up and be a real parent for my nephew Prince.”

The comments came shortly after Khloé’s sister Kim Kardashian raved about Thompson’s parenting abilities in an episode of Hulu’s “The Kardashians,” detailing how he “stepped up” when he saw her “struggling” with her own kids.
