Glory Johnson Speaks Out After a Judge Denies Wife Brittney Griner's Request to Annul Their Marriage
By Brock Wilbur
Glory Johnson and Brittney Griner's rocky relationship is only getting rougher.
After 28 days of marriage, WNBA player Griner filed for annulment from her wife, Johnson. Last week, the judge in the case denied the request, and on Friday, Johnson took to social media to post what appeared to be pointed messages at her soon-to-be ex-wife.
Johnson, 25, shared a photo on Instagram of the quote, "Lying is done with words and also with silence," and explained why she posted it in the caption. "It's not right to proclaim to The World that someone cheated on you, without having Legitimate Proof," she wrote. "I'm not that type of Person, never have been, never will be."
On Saturday morning, the former Tulsa Shock forward posted a follow-up Instagram of a bible passage. "Yesterday was really tough for me..." she wrote. "I don't like to defend myself but I did and this was my morning devotion."
That same day, Johnson told People that she was "thankful the annulment was rejected because an act of marriage did occur."
"Together we made life changing decisions which impacted our lives collectively, and we both should be held responsible for those decisions," she said in a statement to the magazine.
Those life changing decisions include children -- Johnson is currently carrying the ex-couple's twins and has taken a year off from the WNBA due to the pregnancy. She made the announcement about her pregnancy in June, and Griner announced that the couple was ending their marriage the next day.
At the time of the annulment filing, Griner, 24, confessed to People that she had attempted to cancel the wedding a few times before the ceremony and realized after her nuptials that she had made "a mistake."
Much of the turbulence in the relationship seems to revolve around accusations that Johnson kept up sexual relationships with a boyfriend outside of the relationship, and these betrayals may have led to the physical altercation between the two basketball stars back in May, six weeks before their wedding.
These two star athletes weren’t the only ones who were nervous about their wedding day. Check out the video below to see which celebs never even made it down the aisle.
