Early life and education

Griffin studied at a local high school in Los Angeles, and was interested in many activities during his four years there, including playing various sports with his peers, acting with the school’s drama club, and dancing.
He matriculated in 2012, and because Griffin hasn’t spoken of his further education, it’s widely believed that he hasn’t attended college.
Not a lot is known about Griffin’s career, as he prefers to keep it away from the media’s attention, but it’s known that he began competing in desert races in 2013, and that he’s today a NASCAR driver.
One can say that Griffin’s also a social media personality, as in 2022 he’s followed by over 100,000 people on Instagram, while he’s uploaded more than 1,500 pictures onto the network.
Love life and relationships
Griffin prefers to keep the details of his love life to himself, and hasn’t spoken of any girls (or boys) whom he’s perhaps been with. This is mostly why there are today various rumors circulating the internet, concerning both his sexual orientation and current relationship status.
Some of Griffin’s fans believe him to be gay, claiming that this is why the popular NASCAR driver hasn’t spoken of the women whom he’s dated; a fan’s claimed to have seen Griffin and his boyfriend spending time together in Los Angeles, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims.
There are also those who believe that he’s today in a long-term relationship with a non-celebrity American girl, but that Griffin simply prefers to keep her away from media; this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of July 2022, Griffin seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Griffin’s physically quite active and works out at the gym nearly every day, thus his muscular body.
