Surprising news out of the sports world today, as Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin has reportedly been ordered to pay $258,000 in child support to ex-fiancee Brynn Cameron.
The report of this incredible sum was first published by Radar Online.
The outlet claims to have obtained court documents from a civil suit between Griffin and Cameron.
The agreement would require Griffin to pay over $3 million a year for the couple’s two children, Ford, 5, and Finn, 2.
Of course, as Sports Illustrated points out, the payments equate to just 9 percent of the $35 million contract that Griffin declared as his annual income.
So you won’t be seeing the guy at your local soup kitchen anytime soon.
Context aside, however, $3 million annually remains an astonishing amount of money for a child support settlement.
Perhaps that’s why reps for Griffin and Cameron are currently running damage control and denying reports of this wildly unorthodox agreement.
“The recent reports of the financial details of the child support agreement between Blake Griffin and Brynn Cameron are inaccurate,” a rep tells People magazine.
“Both sides have settled amicably and are moving forward with co-parenting their two children,” the statement continues.
“Due to the confidential nature of the agreement, no further details will be released.”
Griffin and Cameron, who is the sister of former NFL tight end Jordan Cameron dated on and off for eight years before calling it quits for good in 2017.
Shortly thereafter, it was reported that Griffin was dating Kendall Jenner.
That relationship didn’t last long, but Brynn was reportedly outraged to learn Blake had decided to dump her for Kendall.
Earlier this year, Cameron sued Griffin for palimony, accusing him in court documents of abandoning his family for Jenner:
“After all, Griffin had no problem trading Brynn Cameron, his former fiancee, and the mother of his 2 children, for reality television star Kendall Jenner,” Cameron’s lawyers wrote at the time.
The suit further alleged that Griffin was an instrumental source of support in the early days of Griffin’s career, serving as his “personal assistant, meal planner, scheduler, stylist, publicist, party planner, nurse, nutritionist, branding expert, therapist, cheerleader, basketball and fitness consultant, and more.”
Obviously, she’s not playing any of those roles anymore … but she’s certainly received quite a severance package.
