No, Blake Griffin isn't paying $258,000 per month in child support
A report from Radar Online surfaced on Wednesday claiming that Detroit Pistons big man Blake Griffin was ordered to pay $258,000 per month in child support to his ex-fiancee, Brynn Cameron.
That’s an insane amount of money — and would total more than $3 million per year.
Griffin and Cameron cleared that up on Friday, releasing a joint statement disputing that report.
“The recent reports of the financial details of the child support agreement between Blake Griffin and Brynn Cameron are inaccurate,” the statement said, according to the Detroit Free Press. “Both sides have settled amicably and are moving forward with co-parenting their two children. Due to the confidential nature of the agreement, no further details will be released.”
Details of that agreement were not made public. According to a TMZ report, though, Griffin is paying Cameron $32,000 per month.
Griffin seemed to dispute the initial report on Twitter on Thursday night, too, tweeting a GIF of Stephen Colbert.

Griffin and Cameron have two children, Ford, 5, and Finn, 2.
According to the initial report from the celebrity gossip blog, court documents showed that Cameron claimed that Griffin kicked her out of their Southern California house last year when they split and called off the engagement. Griffin and Cameron, who played basketball USC, have since been engaged in paternity and civil cases.
Cameron sued Griffin for palimony back in February, too, alleging that he left her and their children to date Kendall Jenner — who he has since split with. Griffin has denied those allegations.
The 29-year-old is entering the second year of his five-year deal with the Detroit Pistons after being traded from the Los Angeles Clippers last season. The deal is worth more than $171 million.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Griffin and Cameron currently have joint legal and physical custody of their children. They must mutually agree on school and related expenses, but Griffin must pay for extracurricular activities.
