*UPDATE*

Glory Johnson says she was blindsided by Brittney’s request for an annulment and says she is “extremely hurt” by her actions. Glory’s sports marketing agent D.J. Fisher told TMZ, “Glory was unaware of the filing and still loves and cares for Brittney.”

Brittney Griner released this statement earlier today,

“Last Wednesday, Glory and I agreed to either legally separate, get divorced, or annul our marriage. In the week prior to the wedding, I attempted to postpone the wedding several times until I completed counseling, but I still went through with it. I now realize that was a mistake.”

Glory’s rep also told TMZ, “Glory loves Brittney and made a huge sacrifice to carry a child, put her career on hold, to invest in their relationship and their future. As a result she won’t be playing this season.”

The rep added,

“Glory wouldn’t intentionally do anything to hurt Brittney and has tried her best to protect her and their marriage. Obviously this marriage was about them starting their life together. Glory is the sweetest thing in the world and she was dedicated to their partnership …¬†She knows how important marriage is and made a lifetime commitment and decision to spend the rest of her life with Brittney.”

Original story resumes below.

After 28 days of marriage, WNBA star Brittney Griner has filed for an annulment from her pregnant wife Glory Johnson-Griner. The shocking news comes days after the newlyweds announced they are expecting a baby.

Glory posted a photo of Brittney holding her belly on Instagram, six hours ago.

Later, she told TMZ that she had no biological connection to the baby and that there was “fraud” in the marriage.

Brittney and Glory wed in an intimate ceremony on May 8th following a publicized domestic violence dispute that led to the ladies being suspended for seven games.

This is a really unfortunate situation.
