Glory Johnson

A Phoenix judge denied WNBA player Glory Johnson’s request for $20,000 a month in alimony from WNBA star Brittney Griner.

The judge also told Johnson to make her own monthly payments on the Mercedes Benz Griner gifted to her.

Griner lost the first round in court earlier this week when a judge denied her request for an annulment in their 28 day gay marriage.

Griner said she made a mistake when she “married” Johnson after dating her less than 6 months.

Johnson, who is on a 1-year leave from the Tulsa Shock WNBA team, said she is already in debt.

Appearing by phone, Johnson told the judge she and Griner planned to have a baby via in vitro fertilization.

She said she was destitute and needed $7,000 a month for her food budget and $6,000 a month for hired help and the rest to live on while she out of work.

“When I go to the grocery store I literally spend $300 every week, sometimes it’s less because I don’t have it,” Johnson testified.

Griner’s lawyer, David Michael Cantor, the 25-year-old Phoenix Mercury center will earn about $1 million this year in endorsements from her Nike contract.

“Even with your contract with Nike and your WNBA contract would you be able to pay $20,000 a month?” asked Griner’s lawyer, “No.” Griner responded.

After the ruling, Cantor said his client was “pleased” with the judge’s decision.

He said “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.”
