However, they split in 2009 to focus on their careers. They briefly reconciled in 2010 and 2012 but ultimately went their separate ways and married others.

TMZ asked Javon Griffin if he had ever wished to be Kim Kardashian’s brother-in-law, to which he replied.

They never liked her and ended the comment by saying she was too much for the family. 

Allegations On Reggie Bush Family

Reggie Bush voluntarily forfeited his 2005 Heisman Trophy due to allegations of receiving improper benefits while playing for USC.

His involvement in an investigation revealed that he and his family had accepted improper benefits, including cash, travel expenses, and a rent-free house.

This violated NCAA rules then, leading to severe sanctions against USC, including four-year probation, loss of scholarships, and a ban from bowl games in 2010 and 2011.

He expressed his honor in winning the award but acknowledged the need to uphold its legacy.

Bush planned to work with the Heisman Trustees to establish an educational program for student-athletes.

This marks the first time a recipient has returned the trophy, sparkled debates on whether the runner-up, Vince Young, should receive it.

While opinions vary, many recognize Bush’s exceptional performance that year and hope for his future success in football.
