We talk a lot about players racking up impressive dating resume's,... but this post starts to flip that narrative.
Blake Griffin's girlfriend Brynn Cameron is a woman we've heard about before. Actually, let's pump the brakes for a second, because girlfriend is apparently not the best title for Brynn Cameron. At most, we know that Brynn Cameron is the mother of Blake Griffin's child, and beyond that, there doesn't appear to be a whole lot more to this relationship. TMZ obtained the birth certificate for Ford Wilson Cameron-Griffin born August 1st, delivered by Cameron, and with Blake Griffin listed as the father. The wesbite has confirmed that the couple is no longer together.
We're the first to admit that having a child isn't unusual, whether fathered by a professional athlete or not. The unusual part comes in when you learn that Ford Wilson Cameron-Griffin's older brother is Cole Cameron-Leinart,... the son of former NFL QB Matt Leinart. Leinart, last seen getting cut by Buffalo in training camp, is paying $15K a month in child support.
For her part, Brynn Cameron is going to help keep the athlete genes in good stock with both boys. Brynn was a former basketball player for USC, which is when she and Leinart first hooked up.

God, I'm getting old. iCarly is a thing? To who? My kid sure doesn't watch it, but apparently it's a big kids show? Seriously, do people know this?
Apparently the Pistons big man knows about iCarly, as seen in Andre Drummond's girlfriend Jennette McCurdy. McCurdy held a role on the Nickelodeon teen-driven show, iCarly, from 2007 to 2012. McCurdy is the elder in the relationship, now 21, dating the 20 year old Drummond. Drummond publicy announced his crush on McCurdy through Twitter, and in a true first-world, 21st century boy meets girl romance story, got his followers to annoy McCurdy's followers to annoy her into finally meeting up. The couple has since met face to face in late August and now appears to enjoy their time together on Instagram.
Drummond posted a solid rookie season for the rebuilding Pistons, with the Motor City looking to him for more in 2013 as the team is poised for a big step forward. Drummond will be an integral part of their success, and as we've seen time and time again, Drummond may see a boost from the stability off the court.
OK but seriously. What the eff is iCarly?

LeBron James is arguably the biggest name in professional sports. Unfortunately, with that title and popularity comes increased scrutiny and media pressure. Therefore it should come as no surprise that just weeks before LeBron James and girlfriend Savannah Brinson walk down the aisle, rumors have started to fly accusing LeBron of stepping out. Bossip.com obtained a series of text messages between LeBron and model Carmen Ortega with each flirtily trying to arrange schedules for a meetup. The text messages were inconclusive to exactly what happened, and after rumors swirled with full internet-gale-force, Ortega performed an interview with Bossip.com to tell her side of the story.
Ortega told Bossip repeatedly that nothing happened between her and James, but did suggest that this wasn't his first time trying to set something up outside his relationship with Brinson. Ortega alleges that LeBron pursued her repeatedly, including one uncomfortable dinner together. Upon confronting LeBron with proof of his relationship to Brinson (and please, please tell me it was from this site,....), LeBron responded with "def don't believe everything you read." Ortega was also quick to opine that Brinson may be on board with LeBron's wandering eye, saying:
I almost feel like Savannah does know. He made some comments before. I asked him straight up, just tell me what’s your situation, he was more like “I’m not on lockdown, it’s not even like that. - Carmen Ortega - Bossip.com
While you'd be quick to give Ortega props for not getting into a physical relationship with a soon-to-be-married father of two, she's quick to credit her hesitation to a bad experience with Reggie Bush. There are allegations that Ortega, who admits to a relationship while Bush was with Kim Kardashian, was the other woman that ultimately broke them up.
While this article may have set the record for the number of times we've used some form of the word allege, it's pretty clear from Ortega's perspective that nothing happened with her and LeBron. Ortega will only speak to her involvement with James, and hints that there may be many more with a different ending to their story. As the wedding draws closer, will any more women come forward with stories on LeBron? We shall see...
