The online filing, seen by Page Six on Thursday morning, is no longer searchable and states the records are “currently CONFIDENTIAL or this case has been SEALED.”

The change in accessibility comes just days after the Sacramento Kings player requested a gag order to prevent his personal trainer from further engaging with the media.

A rep for Nichols told Page Six there has yet to be a hearing on the gag order.

Attorneys for Thompson didn’t immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment.

In the gag order request, obtained by Page Six, Thompson claimed Nichols’ “intention all along [was] to try to achieve some sort of notoriety and gain for herself in this lawsuit” accusing him of fathering a third child.

Thompson further alleged in his filing that he suffered “damages and extreme distress.” He requested the court hold an emergency hearing for the gag order and also wanted Nichols to post a $30,000 bond to “deter” her from violating the order.

As Page Six reported, Nichols filed the lawsuit for child support before the baby was even born; however, we confirmed that Nichols welcomed a baby boy last week.

Thompson, 30, admitted in the lawsuit to having sex with Nichols in March during his birthday celebrations while still dating Khloé Kardashian but has denied impregnating her. He’s demanded a paternity test numerous times to prove the legitimacy of her claims. As of November, Nichols hadn’t taken the test.

In a separate legal filing, obtained by Page Six, Nichols claimed text messages allegedly sent by Thompson showed that he wanted her “to get an abortion” and threatened “that she will get next to nothing with lesser support requirements in Texas.”

Thompson is already a father to 3-year-old daughter True, whom he shares with Kardashian, and 4-year-old son Prince, whom he shares with ex Jordan Craig.

Page Six broke the news in June that the Good American founder, 37, ended her relationship with Thompson after he had allegedly cheated on her with Instagram model Sydney Chase.
