Blake Griffin ordered to pay $3 million a year in child support
Blake Griffin has been ordered to pay $3 million a year in child support to the mother of their two children, according to a report.
Griffin broke up with Brynn Cameron last year, leading to a paternity suit. The matter was settled with the NBA star being ordered to pay $258,000 per month in child support, according to Radar Online. That amounts to over $3 million per year.
For the purposes of the child support calculation, Griffin’s net worth was calculated to be $35 million in March. Griffin is signed to a 5-year, $173 million contract and scheduled to make just under $32 million next season.
Griffin and Cameron have joint legal and physical custody of the children. The two were ordered to mutually agree on school and additional school expenses, with Griffin paying the kids’ extracurricular activities. Griffin claimed in the suit that he is paying for a home in which Cameron and the two children live in Manhattan Beach, Calif.
Cameron, who also has a child with former NFL QB Matt Leinart, has also filed a civil “palimony” suit against Griffin for allegedly breaching an oral contract with him.
UPDATE: TMZ Sports has since reported that this figure is incorrect and that Griffin is paying $32,000 a month, which is a huge difference.
