No matter what the true number is, it is instructive to consider that in most states, the purpose of child support is to provide the children of the union with living conditions that are comparable to what they were when the family was together. Here, the children are 5 and 2 years old. Here, Griffin earned approximately $35 million from his salary, investments and endorsements last year. He is reportedly paying her court costs and legal fees of $375,000.
