With Chris Paul in tow and an exciting start to Lob City's 2011-2012 season, media presence has increased around the once irrelevant Los Angeles Clippers. Considering the relative lack of coverage around the Clip last year, we're not shocked to hear that Blake Griffin was seen hugging model, and rumored girlfriend Sabrina Maserati after their last home game.
According to Terez Owens who broke the story, Maserati is a model signed to Wilhelmina in Miami where she was born and raised. A graduate of Florida Atlantic University, Maserati is a former Orlando Magic dancer, who is now reportedly living and working in Los Angeles for Republic Records. Her Twitter account confirms as her bio says, "Label Marketing Representative for @RepublicRecords & Part-time Model." What is somewhat confusing against TO's report is that from her Twitter timeline, she's clearly a Miami Heat fan, going against both her reported boyfriend and the team she used to dance for. She does post a picture of her courtside at one of the Lakers - Clippers preseason game, with the #Griffin keyword in her tweet.
Our conclusion: inconclusive. While it's absolutely no stretch to imagine that Blake Griffin is dating a smokeshow model, it's unclear if the two are actually together.
