Audrey Sterling earned public attention as Adrian Griffin’s ex-wife. Griffin is a former NBA player and an assistant coach for the Toronto Raptors. Audrey was a track star at Seton Hill. However, their relationship took a turn when Sterling put some serious accusations against Adrian Griffin on social media, accusing him of domestic violence in early 2020.
This turned into a legal battle between former couples, with Adrian Griffin filing a defamation lawsuit against Audrey Sterling. He denied all the allegations made against him, and the situation escalated into legal battle between the ex-spouses.
Adrian Griffin’s lawyer described Audrey Sterling’s actions as “Twitter jihad,” suggesting that she deliberately embarked on a campaign of false allegations to extort money from Adrian Griffin and wanted to destroy his career. The lawsuit put light on the acrimony between ex-spouses, Sterling harbored extreme hatred towards Griffin and had an ongoing desire to sabotage his life.
In early 2021, Griffin sued Sterling for defaming, which led to an out-of-court settlement later in 2022.
Adrian Griffin and Audrey Sterling both got married in 1996 and together have four kids. However, they both got divorced in early 2015, marking the end of their relationship. After their separation, Griffin’s attorney argued that Sterling has been relentless in attempts to undermine Griffin’s personal and professional life.
Prior to the controversy surrounding their divorce, Griffin built an impressive basketball career. He was once regarded as the best player in Seton Hall history during his college years and also went on to play nine seasons in NBA.
After retiring from the game, Griffin started giving coaching, initially joining Milwaukee Bucks as an assistant coach in early 2008. He worked with teams such as Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic before joining the Toronto Raptors, where he was an assistant coach in 2018.
