Cameron’s lawsuit said she was “homeless and cash-strapped” with their two children, Ford, 4, and Finley, 1, requiring financial assistance from her brother, former NFL tight end Jordan Cameron, after she gave up sports marketing and interior design careers at Griffin’s request, per multiple reports. In addition to mothering their children, Cameron cited a number of professional roles she played in Griffin’s life in the lawsuit, from personal assistant to fitness consultant, including counseling the oft-injured star on his “mounting tension” with Chris Paul and a “toxic” relationship with the Los Angeles Clippers.
