However, Cameron could not play most of the games during her sophomore season due to her nagging hip injury. She endured a second surgery at the end of the season.
She took a break from her career during the 2006-07 junior season to give birth to her first child. In an interview with People, Cameron shared that she felt like her life ended when she learned that she was about to have a child. She said, "I thought, 'Why me?' I thought, 'You've just ruined your life.' I thought my life was over, school was over, basketball was over. I just thought I was done. I kept saying, 'This is horrible' and 'This is the worst thing that ever happened. You're supposed to graduate from college and then get married and then start a family.' I thought the baby and I were done for."

Cameron said in an interview that she and Griffin had planned to get married on 28 July 2017, but Griffin blindsided her with a prenuptial agreement a month before their wedding day. Griffin then called off their marriage a week before their wedding as Cameron did not agree to sign a prenuptial agreement, as per TMZ. Cameron said that Griffin "immediately embarked on a high-profile affair with [Kendall Jenner]. The next weekend, on what would have been his wedding day, he was partying in Las Vegas."
Later, Griffin filed a petition on 23 October 2017 seeking legal paternity for child support and custody rights of his two children with Cameron, as per Rader Online. On 14 February 2018, Cameron filed a lawsuit against Griffin for palimony, alleging that he abandoned her and their two children for Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality television star Kendall Jenner. Griffin responded to the lawsuit in April. He denied the allegations and requested Cameron's complaint "be dismissed, with prejudice and in its entirety."
The Blast reported on 1 August 2018 that Cameron and Griffin settled their custody battle during private negotiations just hours before they were supposed to appear in the courtroom. They told People via a joint statement that "Both sides have settled amicably and are moving forward with co-parenting their two children." On 18 December 2018, the request for dismissal of Cameron's complaint with prejudice was granted.
