Of the five Kardashian sisters, Kendall Jenner seems to attract a disproportionate number of negative headlines. While Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner have been able to generate good will recently with their happy baby news, Jenner has found herself embroiled in another scandal.

This one has to do with her romance with NBA star Blake Griffin, who was just traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Detroit Pistons.
It turns out that Jenner, 22, is being named in a new palimony lawsuit as the cause of Griffin’s breakup with ex-girlfriend, Brynn Cameron who is the mother of Griffin’s two young children, TMZ reported.
Cameron filed her lawsuit on Wednesday, Valentine’s Day, claiming that Griffin, 28, “shamelessly” abandoned her and their children for Jenner. The lawsuit alleges that Griffin “cruelly” embarrassed his family “with his public fawning” over Jenner.
“Griffin cared more about the glamour of dating a Hollywood celebrity than the day-to-day responsibilities of being a father and family man,” Cameron alleges in the lawsuit.
The couple had been in an on-and-off relationship for eight years, but Cameron’s high-powered attorney Bryan Freedman said Griffin made repeated pledges to Cameron, promising to support her after insisting she abandon her sports marketing job and interior design business.
In July, Griffin signed a five-year contract extension worth $171.2 million with the Los Angeles Clippers last July. But he was traded to the Pistons on Jan. 29, according to Bleacher Report.
It was reported in December that Griffin’s romance with Jenner had sparked a nasty custody battle. Over the summer, Griffin dumped Cameron, a former USC basketball player, to pursue “a glamorous Hollywood relationship” with Jenner, a top international model and co-star of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” The Blast reported.
With regard to the custody battle, Griffin actually went on the offense by filing paperwork to legally establish paternity of his children with Cameron, Finley, 1, and Ford, 4. Filing for paternity is the first step to getting a court-ordered custody and child support agreement, The Blast added.
But Cameron filed documents of her own, also seeking joint custody but asking the judge to establish child support based on Griffin’s annual salary, the Blast reported.
According to Cameron’s palimony lawsuit, Griffin’s “abandonment” has left her and their children homeless and cash-strapped while he continues to earn millions.
