It may be Valentine’s Day, but love is not in the air for one NBA star who was gifted a hefty lawsuit instead of a romantic gift.
Blake Griffin’s ex-fiancée, Brynn Cameron, has filed a palimony lawsuit against the father of two for abandoning his family for Kendall Jenner, reported TMZ Sports.
According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Griffin should pay up for “cruelly embarrassing his family with his public fawning over Kendall Jenner.”
Brynn and Blake had an 8-year relationship that consisted of several breakups along the way. Although they have two children together and were engaged last year, he called off the wedding when he was rumored to have started dating Jenner.
In the suit, Brynn says his recent trade from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Detroit Pistons is not the only trade he experienced.
“Griffin himself, however, knows very well what breaching promises is all about. 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,” read the suit, according to TMZ.
According to the lawsuit, filed on Valentine’s Day by celebrity lawyer Bryan Freedman, Brynn was the ultimate support system for Griffin, who allegedly insisted she leave her work in sports marketing and interior design.
“Cameron was not just the mother of Griffin’s children and their caregiver, she was also a constant support for Griffin — his personal assistant, meal planner, scheduler, stylist, publicist, party planner, nurse, nutritionist, branding expert, therapist, cheerleader, basketball and fitness consultant, and more,” read the suit.
According to the lawsuit, “[Cameron] strengthened Griffin’s bond with his teammates and allowed the organization to see a different side of his personality rather than the hard-partying man-child Griffin had been prior to their cohabitation.”
“Griffin cared more about the glamour of dating a Hollywood celebrity than the day-to-day responsibilities of being a father and family man,” the suit added.
Although it is unknown how much Brynn is looking to gain from the suit, she says Griffin, who in June signed a $173 MILLION contract, left her and her family in a dire situation.
“While Griffin is continuing to earn millions from his NBA and endorsement deals, Cameron and their children are homeless and cash-strapped. In Griffin’s absence, Cameron’s brother has had to provide Cameron and the children with financial support,” read the suit.
