Brittney Griner filed for an annulment with Glory Johnson-Griner a day after Johnson-Griner announced she's pregnant and a month after the two WNBA players married, the Associated Press reported.
"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," Griner said in a statement. "I now realize that was a mistake." Johnson-Griner's agent, D.J. Fisher, said in a statement that her client was unaware of the filing and was "extremely hurt and blindsided" by Griner's actions.
Griner, the 6-foot-8 Phoenix Mercury star, married Johnson-Griner on May 9, three weeks after they were arrested on domestic-violence charges for a fight at their home in suburban Phoenix.
