WNBA stars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson will have to terminate their gay marriage like heterosexuals do -- in divorce court. An Arizona judge denied Griner's hasty request for an annulment just 28 days after her "marriage" to Johnson in June.
WNBA star Brittney Griner is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The emotional wrecking ball of her personal life has taken its toll on her physically and emotionally.
In a new interview with ESPN, Griner called her "marriage" to WNBA player Glory Johnson "a huge mistake."
Griner, 25, broke down and cried as she told ESPN's Kate Fagan that the last 10 months have been "emotional" for her.
On Friday, Griner filed for an annulment of her "marriage" to Johnson, a day after Johnson announced her surprise pregnancy on social media.
Just weeks before the "marriage," Griner and Johnson were arrested for domestic violence. Griner called her fight with Johnson "mutual combat," and she said she should have walked away.
Griner called the marriage a "fraud" and she said she didn't know about Johnson's pregnancy. Griner hopes to annul the "marriage" so she won't be on the hook for child support for another man's baby.
Griner said she had text messages that prove she did not want to go through with the forced wedding.
When asked what her next step would be, Griner, who plays for the Tulsa Shock, said, "Just submerge myself in basketball... "Practicing, getting the team better, getting myself better and just counting these next six games until I get back on the court."
