Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin and his ex-girlfriend Brynn Cameron have denied reports that Griffin has been ordered to pay $258,000 a month in child support bills. Radar Online, which claims to have obtained court documents, originally reported that Griffin agreed to pay over $3 million annually in support of their two young children, five-year old Ford and two-year old Finn.
However, the former couple has since released a statement denying the report.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the statement reads,
Griffin and Cameron did not clarify how much the child support bills are, but TMZ Sports alleges that actual figure is $32,000 a month – a far cry from the $258,000 that was reported by Radar Online.
The former couple, who have joint custody of their children, were engaged to be married last year but Griffin eventually called things off, which prompted Cameron to file a lawsuit back in February.
In the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Cameron claims Griffin made repeated pledges to her, promising to support her after insisting she abandon her sports marketing job and interior design business. However, she says he ultimately “cared more about the glamour of dating a Hollywood celebrity than the day-to-day responsibilities of being a father and family man.”
Griffin signed a five-year, $173 million contract extension with the Los Angeles Clippers last June before being traded to the Detroit Pistons in January.
