Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson announced that they are annulling their marriage and have a baby on the way in the same week.
It turns out, a big reason their whirlwind romance fell apart is that one of them isn’t a lesbian!
Baller Alert reports that the couple did anÂ interview with The New York Times insisting Glory is straight.
“Glory is straight,â€ Griner said. â€œThat was another reason why I thought this could end really bad.â€
â€œIâ€™m not a lesbian,â€ Johnson added. â€œBut Brittney is different. I still donâ€™t really feel like Iâ€™m attracted to females in general. Itâ€™s just that Iâ€™m attracted to just one person.â€
In a new interview with ESPN, WNBA star Brittney Griner opens up about the â€œhuge mistakeâ€ she made in marrying fellow athlete Glory Johnson. She breaks down in tears as she describes the last year as â€œemotionalâ€.
“I shouldn’t have went through with it,” Johnson tells ESPNÂ in reference to the marriage.”You know, sometimes you feel pressured into things, and I went along with it. And I know I shouldn’t have. It was a huge mistake. I just knew it was a mistake.”
On the decision to file for an annulment instead of work through her issues with Johnson, Griner says, â€œWith everything going on with counseling and classes, it wasnâ€™t the right way to start off a marriage, it wasnâ€™t the right way to start off our unity. I wanted to take time to get myself right.â€
â€œThis past Wednesday we both agreed to get an annulment. Itâ€™s in writingâ€¦in text messages as well.â€
Griner says her plan to move forward is, â€œâ€¦Emerge myself in basketball. Get myself better and get the team better.â€
The Phoenix Mercury player who is currently on suspension for a domestic violence incident with Johnson adds, â€œâ€¦And count down these next six games â€™til I get back on the court.â€
