Baker Mayfield Parents James And Gina & Their Legal Battle
Baker Mayfield was born on April 14, 1995, in Austin, Texas, to his parents, James and Gina Mayfield.
Together, James and Gina have two kids. Baker was raised alongside his older brother, Matt Mayfield, in Austin.
The NFL quarterback’s father, James, serves as a founder and senior managing director of Camwood Capital. Meanwhile, Matt, the elder brother, is the managing director.
Moreover, his mother, Gina Mayfield, is a housewife who raised two brothers and fostered their development, which paved the way for Matt and Baker’s success.
However, in recent times, the Mayfield family has been entangled in legal disputes.
In a piece of news that broke out on Saturday, Baker & his wife, Emily Mayfield, announced a petition over missing $12 million against an investment firm where his family members work.
They petitioned in district court in Austin, Texas, requesting data regarding the possible laundering of $12 million.
Furthermore, on Tuesday, Baker petitioned to begin depositions for a lawsuit against six companies, two of which were founded by Mayfield’s father.
Mayfield and his wife have requested those companies to turn over financial reports from 2018 to 2023 so they can get insight into what happened to the millions of dollars they invested in those companies.
On the contrary, his family has not made any public statements regarding the matter.
Despite this, there is a hope that the petition doesn’t end up in a lawsuit, though that could be coming in the future, in contrast to how the companies respond to the request.
