Brittney Griner Files for Annulment of Marriage to Glory Johnson

by at .

One day after Glory Johnson announced she was pregnant, Brittney Griner has filed to annul her 28-day marriage to... Glory Johnson.

Griner and Johnson got married on May 8, an unexpected turn of events that took place just days after both WNBA players were arrested for assault against one another.

Johnson then excitedly announced on Thursday that she's expecting a baby.

In court documents obtained by TMZ, however, Griner says she has no biological connection to this child and only married Johnson due to “fraud and duress,” claiming she was made to do so via “threatening statements.”

Marketing agent D.J. Fisher speaks for Johnson, meanwhile, and says she was “blindsided” by Griner’s annulment filing.

He says Glory “still loves and cares for Brittney.”

But this is the statement released by Griner in response to today's events:

"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."

Johnson, who is sitting out the 2015 WNBA to give birth and to care for her baby, says no marriage dissolution agreement was ever in place.

Says her rep:

"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."

Griner and Johnson have been together for a long time. They appeared on an episode of Say Yes to the Dress together in January... yet are clearly finding it a lot harder to say yes to the same thing these days.
