Brittney Griner Files to Have Marriage to Glory Johnson Annulled

Brittney Griner Glory Johnson

Things took a turn for the worst fairly quickly for Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson.

The newlywed couple, who just announced that they’re expecting their first child together last Thursday (June 4), are already splitting. Griner has filed papers seeking to annul her 29-day married to Johnson.

“Last Wednesday, Glory and I agreed to either legally separate, get divorced, or annul our marriage,” Griner said in a statement Friday (via ESPN). “I can confirm that today I filed for an annulment. In the week prior to the wedding, I attempted to postpone the wedding several times until I completed counseling, but I still went through with it. I now realize that was a mistake.”

The court documents reportedly lists “void based on fraud,” as reasoning for the annulment, adding that “Petitioner was pressured into marriage under durress by Respondent’s threatening statements.”

The two WNBA stars got married on May 8, just three weeks after both were arrested in Arizona on domestic violence charges. And yesterday, they announced Johnson is pregnant with their first child.

Despite Griner’s statement that suggest she and Johnson discussed the matter beforehand, Johnson claims she was “extremely hurt and blindsided.”

“She loves Brittney and made a huge sacrifice to carry a child, put her career on hold, invest in their relationship and their future,” Fisher said, adding that Johnson was requesting privacy.
