Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin has reportedly been ordered to pay ex-girlfriend Brynn Cameron $258,000 per month (roughly $3.1 million annually) in support of their two young children, five-year old Ford and two-year old Finn. Radar Online reports both sides were ordered in July to “mutually agree” on school expenses, but Griffin would be responsible for extracurricular activities.
According to Radar, Griffin said as of July 23, he is paying the lease for a five-bedroom home in Manhattan Beach for Cameron and the children, in addition to paying medical insurance and other costs since the children were born.
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.”
Cameron says she did everything for Blake, including being his “personal assistant, nutritionist, publicist and branding expert” among other titles. She also takes credit for counseling him on how to deal with the “mounting tension” between he and Chris Paul.
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.
