WNBA star Brittney Griner was ordered to pay child support to her former lover, WNBA player Glory Johnson.
Johnson, 25, revealed she was pregnant with twins in 2015 during her bitter divorce from Griner. The two women were "married" for just 4 weeks in 2015.
An Arizona Superior Court judge ordered Griner to pay Johnson $2,516 per month for her twin girls, Ava Simone and Soleil Diem.
Griner, 25, was also ordered to pay Johnson $8,505 in back child support in addition to half the expenses for two nannies ($2,835 per month).
The court considered Griner's annual income of $1.1 million in making its decision. Her income includes the Phoenix Mercury center's $100,000 WNBA salary, and income from Russian team UMMC Ekaterinburg as well as various endorsements.
Johnson, who plays for the Dallas Wings WNBA team, previously expressed relief after a judge denied Griner's motion for an annulment last year. Johnson said she was "thankful" because "an act of marriage did occur."
In court documents Griner argued that Johnson lied to her about repeated sexual contact with a boyfriend. But the court noted that Griner signed documents and she accompanied Johnson to her in vitro fertilization treatments.
In other words, Griner got played like every other professional athlete who falls into the clutches of crafty gold diggers.
