Back in April, while on the "No Jumper" podcast, Sydney Chase claimed that she hooked up with Khloe Kardashian's boyfriend earlier this year. On May 4, Tristan's attorney told Page Six that cease and desist letters were sent to both Sydney and "No Jumper" host Adam John Grandmaiso.

Sydney has apparently not responded to the legal letter, but she maintains that she never got one.

"I have not received a cease & desist from anyone," she wrote on her Instagram Story on May 4. "The articles are giving false information. Let this be a lesson to not let anyone no matter the money or fame they have, to shut you down or tarnish your name."

  First look: Literary star Claire Vaye Watkins' next novel will tackle all the taboo topics I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness will cover motherhood, cults, drugs, and more. The woods! The woods! They'll never never catch you in the woods! Or maybe it starts before then. Like I said, I've tried to tell it a bunch of times. Each try takes me further from whatever it is I'm after. I finish on an alien shore with a raft of needs, reminded once again that books heal people all the time, just not usually the people who write them. I promise to need nothing from this last try. It's only a yarn for the dolls. It starts with my husband, Theo.

"No Jumper," meanwhile, removed the interview in question from social media after receiving the letter.

"Yeah, we got a cease and desist and deleted it," Adam told the New York Post's gossip section. "Honestly, I wouldn't have posted it in the first place if I knew it was going to mess up a relationship."

Since then, the video has been re-posted in an edited format.

"I try to avoid the 'exposing'-style interviews these days," Adam said.

During the initial April 22 interview, Sydney said of the Boston Celtics player, "He told me he was not in a relationship anymore, so I said OK. We talked, we hung out multiple times, we went out together, everything."

Sydney maintained that she knew who Tristan was and knew of his history with Khloe. She asserts that she asked him directly if he was single, and he responded, "Yes."

After news of the alleged tryst made headlines, Sydney doubled down on her claims and said Tristan reached out to her in the wake of the podcast interview. He also tried to contact her just a few weeks ago, she claims.

"Yes the Tristan rumors are true," she said on TikTok. "The last time we had contact — besides when he messaged me after finding out about the interview, it was the day after his daughter's birthday party [in mid-April]."

Tristan's team insists that there's no merit to Sydney's allegations and imply that she's simply trying to cash in on her newfound fame. In fact, she allegedly tried pitching a reality series to the Zeus Network that would feature Kardashian nemesis Blac Chyna, Page Six says.

"Hey Sydney, this is Khloe…" the message began. The Instagram model, however, redacted the rest of the message. The screenshot also shows Khloe allegedly writing, "I would appreciate if our conversation can remain confidential [prayer hands emoji]."
