Since joining the NBA as the first pick in the 2009 draft, Blake Griffin has enjoyed throwing down posterizing dunks over the best players in the league. To his credit, he has even dunked over a car to win the Sprite Slam-Dunk Contest in 2011.
Now it seems like he’s the one getting dunked on. Only instead of a ball, its child support payments. As an illustration, ex-girlfriend Brynn Cameron driving down the lane before suddenly towering over Griffin to throw down an emphatic dunk.
According to Radar Online, the Detroit Pistons star has been ordered to pay out $258,000 per month. Cameron might not be an NBA talent but she’s definitely securing an NBA level bag. Her annual payment averages out to be $3.1 million per year — more than a capped-out veteran’s minimum of $2.4 million.
Griffin was getting big bags in L.A. long before LeBron James came into town. Last June he signed a five-year, $173 million contract extension with the L.A. Clippers before being traded in January.
He and Cameron had been well acquainted since their college days at USC. Now they have two children, Ford (age 5) and Finn (age 2). A rift began to form between the couple due to complicated paternity case and a separate civil suit where Cameron claimed Griffin broke off their engagement shortly after he started dating Kendall Jenner.
Although Cameron has a separate child with former USC quarterback Matt Leinart, she says was “reduced to being homeless,” with no more than $100 to her name. Unemployed, she describes Griffen as “uber-rich.” Therefore, he should pay all costs, including her attorney’s fees, which is estimated to be $375,000.
Griffin insists he is already paying the lease for a five-bedroom home in Manhattan Beach for Cameron and the children. Documents also indicate he has been paying for medical insurance and other costs since the children were born.
