The latest saga in the Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson rocky relationship has come down to a judge in Arizona ordering Griner, the six-foot eighth three-time all star WNBA player, to pay $40,000 a year in child support to raise Johnson’s twins.
This news is according to court documents that gossip site Bossip got its hands on.
If you recall from our reporting on these two last year, they got engaged following a violent fight in April 2015 with one another which ended with the police being called. They then reconciled, and married the next month in May and, according to Johnson and Instagram, decided to conceive children with the help of artificial insemination.
“It has always been a dream of mine to start a family with someone I love,” Johnson-Griner said in a statement provided the Shock. “Being a professional athlete that plays year round, there is never a perfect time to get pregnant without putting my career on hold. The entire process, from learning our fertility options, to making sacrifices necessary nine months before the child is born, is merely preparing me to become a great wife and an even better mother.”
A few weeks into the pregnancy, they were on the outs again…for good this time and Griner filed for an annulment and alleged to a court that she knew nothing of the pregnancy and was never part of plans to make babies.
Sorry, Griner, but the photos look quite suspicious and perhaps is why the judge in Maricopa County decided that she has to fork over part of her $1.3 million annual salary (mainly from endorsements and other projects, and only $100,000 from her salary from Phoenix Mercury) That money will go to support the babies.
Johnson argued to the judge that she relies on relatives to take care of her babies during the season and needs help paying them. The judge agreed, noting that the cost would decrease as the kids got older and required less cost to raise.bellyitchblog.com+1 more Over 9 million people have enjoyed Bellyitch's Award-winning Celeb "bumpwatch" pregnancy and parenting blog.
