Blake Griffin ordered to pay massive child support bill
The order, which was signed on July 19, set the cost at a massive $258,000 per month, which would be paid to Griffin’s ex, Brynn Cameron.
To put matters contractually — his child support bill stops at a hair shy of $3.1 million per year — more than a capped-out veteran’s minimum of $2.4 million (for players with 10 or more years of service).
Griffin won’t have much problem paying it after he signed a five-year, $173 million contract extension with the L.A. Clippers last June, but was later traded to the Pistons in January.
Cameron, who played basketball at USC, split from Griffin about a year ago, leaving two children, Ford (five) and Finn (two).
The former couple have been entangled in a complicated paternity case and a separate civil suit where Cameron claimed the Oklahoma native broke off their engagement shortly after he started dating Kendall Jenner, when he was still part of the L.A. Clippers.
Cameron has another child from a previous relationship with former USC quarterback Matt Leinart, and claims she was “reduced to being homeless,” with no more than $100 to her name.
She is currently unemployed and recently claimed her ex Griffin is “uber-rich” and should pay all costs, including her attorney’s fees, which roughly amassed to $375,000.
Griffin said that as of July 23, he is paying the lease for a five-bedroom home in Manhattan Beach for Cameron and the children.
Documents also corroborated that Griffin is paying for medical insurance and other costs since the children were born.
