With all the drama surrounding WNBA stars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson annulled marriage, Glory is finally speaking out about the matter.
If you remember, Brittney and Glory were arrested after allegedly getting into a fight with one another and both were charged with suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct in relation to domestic violence in Arizona – Glory’s charges has been dismissed.
Right after the altercation, Brittney and Glory got married and just 28-days after Brittney filed for an annulment after finding out that Glory was pregnant – supposedly by an ex-boyfriend.
Now, after the public breakup and pregnancy rumors, Glory is speaking out about the matter.
“I am truly really saddened by the recent turn of events and was not expecting to have our marriage end so abruptly. I am ready to begin focusing on my health, pregnancy and am going to remain in Tulsa to continue to build my relationship with the Tulsa Shock organization, and my teammates. I appreciate the support of my fans, family and loved ones and look forward to returning to the basketball court as soon as I can.”
“I would like to address the inaccurate statements released surrounding my marriage and pregnancy, so that I can continue, after this statement, to focus on my privacy and allow our lawyers to handle this situation.”
Glory claims that she became pregnant through in vitro fertilization (IVF) with her egg and a donor’s sperm. In court documents regarding the matter, Brittney states that she has no biological connection to the baby and she is unaware of how long Glory has been pregnant.
“At no stage was Brittney pressured to undertake the fertility process. In fact, throughout the entire process, Brittney was a willing participant, consenting and signing all the necessary documents that needed to be signed in order to move forward with the treatments.”
Last week, Brittney told ESPN that she felt pressured to get married, but Glory states that wish to get married was mutual.
“In addition, while we may have both had our reservations, we both willfully and joyfully walked down the aisle together and decided to get married.”
