A judge has denied Glory Johnson’s request to collect $20,000 a month in temporary spousal support plus attorney’s fees from soon-to-be ex-wife.
“I feel relieved and thankful now that this stressful situation is coming to an end,” Johnson said. “I was honest throughout this entire painful experience, and I have no regrets. Now, I feel like I am finally free to focus on the things in my life that really matter.”
The WNBA players married in May just months after were both arrested on domestic violence charges. On June 4, Johnson announced her pregnancy with twins and the day after, Griner filed for papers requesting their marriage be annulled.
Johnson was requesting Griner pay her $20,000 a month because she said her salary was reduced due to her inability to continue playing basketball on pregnancy leave. She also said her finances were used for the wedding, IVF procedures and furniture for their shared house. She also said she needs “household assistance, personal trainers and medical care not covered by her current insurance.”
Griner’s attorney was happy with the results.
“We are very pleased that the judge has ruled, after evaluating the credibility of the testimony, that a 28-day marriage does not entitle Glory Johnson to Brittney Griner’s money for purposes of alimony, Mercedes car payments or attorney’s fees.”
Johnson, due in February, can file a motion requesting child support from Griner once the children are born.
