It has been a rocky few months for WNBA players and wives, Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson.
At the end of April, Griner and Johnson were arrested for suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct after a fight. Just a few days later the couple married in Phoenix. A month later, Johnson announced news that she is pregnant. The next day, the couple said their marriage was over.
On April 22, the two 24-year-olds were taken to jail after a heated argument. Both were charged with assault by recklessly causing physical injuries and disorderly conduct.
“It is never okay for an argument to turn physical,” Griner said after the incident. “This will never happen again, and I take my relationship and my responsibility as a role model seriously. I am committed to making positive changes and I plan to use what I have learned to set a good example and help make a difference in the world around me.”
Griner agreed to attend 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling.
Just a few weeks later, on April 8, the couple tied the knot.
“I don’t care if the world was ending at this moment!” Griner said on Instagram. “Nothing could of kept me from my wife. I think I cried the whole day until I saw her walking down that [aisle]. Then in [an] instant I was calm and full of love and all the tears turned into huge smiles and a joy that no one can explain unless you have found and married your soulmate.”
A month later, on June 4, Johnson announced her pregnancy via Instagram with a photo of a bun entering an oven and a caption that read, “#SUCCESS #BLESSED #WelcomeToTheJohnsonGrinerFamily.“
“It has always been a dream of mine to start a family with someone I love,” she said. “Being a professional athlete that plays year round, there is never a perfect time to get pregnant without putting my career on hold.”
Just a day after her announcement, TMZ reported that Griner has officially filed papers seeking an annulment to her wife of 28 days.
