8/14/2015 7:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0607-glory-johnson-brittney-griner-GETTY-01Glory Johnson's reaction to Brittney Griner's annulment filing getting shot down is ... the judge did what's right and fair -- and she says Brittney can't run from their marriage.

The pregnant Tulsa Shock player tells TMZ Sports ... "I am thankful the annulment was rejected because an act of marriage did occur." As we reported ... an Arizona judge just rejected Griner's request to annul their marriage.

Glory adds, "Together we made life changing decisions which impacted our lives collectively, and we both should be held responsible for those decisions."

Translation: I'm having twins, we're still married, and YOU are the breadwinner for this family.

WNBA Star Brittney Griner No Annulment! Still Married to Johnson

8/14/2015 5:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0814-brittney-griner-glory-johnson-01Brittney Griner's attempt to annul her marriage was shot down in an Arizona court.

WNBA superstar Griner had filed for the annulment back in June ... right after fellow hoopster and wife, Glory Johnson, announced she was pregnant with twins. An AZ judge rejected the annulment case on Thursday.

It's unclear where that leaves the unhappy couple -- presumably headed for divorce court. 

It's been an insane year for Griner and Johnson -- they both got arrested for domestic violence in April, got married May 8th ... and 28 days later, Griner filed for annulment.

According to People, which first reported the failed annulment ... Johnson is now living in Tennessee near her family. Griner is still in AZ, playing for the Phoenix Mercury.

A rep says Glory is just focused on having a healthy pregnancy.

Brittney Griner I Busted Glory Johnson ... Creeping with Her Ex-Boyfriend

7/23/2015 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0604-brittney-griner-glory-johnson-instagram-01Brittney Griner was a woman scorned when she pulled the plug on her marriage -- because she learned Glory Johnson was texting an ex-boyfriend on the down-low ... during their engagement.

According to new annulment docs -- obtained by TMZ Sports -- Griner says she found out Johnson had been texting the guy in early April ... months into their engagement. Griner's point is she would never have married Johnson if she knew the old flame was still flickering. 

Griner also says she's learned Johnson was still boning a guy in the summer of 2014 ... early on in their courtship. She doesn't say if it's the same guy in the texts. Again, Griner says had she known, she wouldn't have popped the question in August 2014.

And Brittney doesn't want to be an ATM -- saying Glory doesn't deserve spousal support because they were only married for 28 days. Plus, neither got paid during that period due to their WNBA suspensions for domestic violence.

Glory's rep, D.J. Fisher, calls the cheating allegations false. He added, Glory is "popular and beautiful, so she's going to have male friends." He says only an insecure person would think it's more than that.

Brittney Griner I Knew About Pregnancy 'Surprised' By Announcement

6/8/2015 2:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Brittney Griner says she was blindsided by Glory Johnson's pregnancy announcement -- but it wasn't the fact she was preggo that shocked her, it was the timing.

Griner sat down with ESPN's Kate Fagan and said she was surprised that Johnson went public with the news when she did because "it's very early. It's too early to post or say anything about it."

As TMZ Sports previously reported, sources connected to the couple tell us Johnson has only been pregnant for less than a month. 

It's still unclear whether or not Griner wants to have a relationship with the child -- or if she plans on helping out Johnson with the financial situation. 

During the interview, Griner re-stated that getting married to Johnson was a "huge mistake" and said she only agreed because she felt pressured into it. 

"With everything going on ... counseling, classes ... it wasn't the right way to start off a marriage like that."

Glory Johnson Brittney Griner Is a Liar ... She Blindsided Me

6/5/2015 4:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0605_gloria_johnson_brittney-griner_gettyGlory Johnson says she was "blindsided" by Brittney Griner's decision to file for an annulment today -- telling TMZ Sports she's "extremely hurt" by Brittney's actions. 

We spoke with Johnson's sports marketing agent, D.J. Fisher, who tells us "Glory was unaware of the filing and still loves and cares for Brittney."

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Griner filed the court docs Friday -- saying Johnson essentially threatened her into getting married ... and claims the whole thing was a fraud. 

Griner issued a statement saying, "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."

But Johnson's camp says Brittney's full of crap -- saying they NEVER agreed to annul the marriage.

Johnson's rep adds, "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."

"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."

Exclusive Details

0604-brittney-griner-glory-johnson-instagram-01WNBA superstar Brittney Griner is going to be a mom ... 'cause her WNBA wife Glory Johnson has announced she's got a bun in the oven. 

The couple is obviously moving quickly -- they were just married last month. 

Sources close to the couple tell us they found out just a few weeks ago -- and insist Johnson was NOT pregnant at the time of the domestic violence incident in Arizona back in April.  

Clearly, the couple used a sperm donor ... though the donor's identity has not been revealed at this point. 

24-year-old Johnson made the announcement on her Instagram page -- showing a picture of a bun in an oven ... with the caption, "#WelcomeToTheJohnsonGrinerFamily."

0604-subasset-britney-gringer-instagram2The WNBA season is set to begin Friday -- we're told Glory will NOT play this season.

No word on how this will impact her 7 game suspension stemming from her domestic violence arrest back in April.

Brittney Griner 7 Game Suspension Is Ridiculous ... Says WNBA Players Association

5/28/2015 8:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0528-griner-johnson-wnbapa-getty-instagram-01Brittney Griner is getting SCREWED by the WNBA -- so says the WNBA Players Association, which claims Griner's 7 game suspension for domestic violence is "excessive and inappropriate."

We broke the story ... Griner and her wife Glory Johnson were each hit with 7 game suspensions after they were both arrested for attacking each other at their AZ home on April 22nd. 

So far, neither woman has appealed the punishment -- but the WNBA strongly believes they should.

"There is a significant segment of the WNBA players who feel that, while a suspension may have been warranted, a suspension of seven games (20% of the season) is excessive and inappropriate," a WNBA P.A. rep tells TMZ Sports

The P.A. says it's concerned that the punishment would set an unfair precedent for the league -- considering both women were first time offenders. 

The P.A. also says a 7 game suspension would have a "significant economic impact" on the WNBA as a league. 

But the biggest problem, according to the P.A., the organization says it can't formally fight the league without Griner and Johnson giving their blessing -- and so far, they've been mum. 

There's a deadline for the players to appeal -- June 4th -- so, the clock is ticking. 

Brittney Griner & Glory Johnson Newlyweds Suspended for Domestic Violence

5/15/2015 9:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0515-griner-johnson-wnba-tmz-instagram-01Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson just got their wedding gift from the WNBA -- 7 game suspensions without pay for their domestic violence arrests last month.

Griner plays for the Phoenix Mercury, and Johnson for the Tulsa Shock -- and each will begin their suspensions when the WNBA season begins in June. The season is only 34 games long ... so 7 games is roughly 20% of the season. 

You'll recall ... the couple got arrested after brawling with each other in their Phoenix area home. They were engaged at the time, but went through with their wedding 2 weeks later.  

The WNBA President Laurel Richie says she consulted with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver -- as well as several abuse counselors and domestic violence groups -- before reaching her decision.

In addition to the suspensions ... Brittney and Glory will have to attend individual counseling sessions.

update_graphic_red_barThe WNBA also released more details about the fight ... saying Glory was diagnosed with a concussion following the brawl. 

Brittney sustained no head injuries ... just a bite wound on her finger and scratches on her wrist. 

WNBA Star Brittney Griner I Married My Love/Co-Defendant

5/9/2015 6:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0425-britney-griner-fiance-instagram-01WNBA star Brittney Griner has tied the knot with the woman who cut and bit her during a blowout fight that resulted in their arrests just 2 weeks ago.

Britney and Glory Johnson said "I do" in Phoenix Friday, a week after Brittney pled guilty to disorderly conduct.  Glory wore a full length strapless gown, and Brittney a business suit with tennis shoes.


It's a risky move ... getting hitched after a fight that left both of them bloodied and injured.  In fact, on the day of the arrest Brittney told cops she and Glory were having serious relationship issues.

Nonetheless, it looked like a beautiful wedding.

Good luck to both.

Brittney Griner & Fiancee Recruited By 'Couples Therapy' ... You Need Serious Help

4/29/2015 4:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The host of VH1's "Couples Therapy" says she desperately wants to get WNBA star Brittney Griner and her fiancee Glory Johnson on the show ... telling TMZ Sports they "need a hell of a lot of work."

Both Brittney and Glory were arrested last week for attacking each other in their AZ home -- and Dr. Jenn Berman says the show would be the perfect place for them to work out their issues before they tie the knot. 

Dr. Berman -- a former rape and domestic violence counselor -- also says domestic violence is a serious problem in the gay and lesbian community because they tend to hide it more often. 

"There's a lot of shame in the gay community when there is domestic violence because there is a kind of a sense of 'Hey, we've been fighting to be recognized as a couple and now we have this?!'"

Berman also offers the couple advice -- but says she could be most effective if Griner and Johnson agree to get her help in person ... on Season 6.

Cantor says, "The day after her arrest, prior to the Court’s requirements being imposed, Brittney voluntarily began counseling and will continue to attend in addition to the required court’s counseling."

We're told that Brittney is also being investigated by the WNBA -- and she "cooperating fully" with the league. 

Cantor adds, "Brittney wishes everyone to know, "It is never okay for an argument to turn physical. This will never happen again, and I take my relationship and my responsibility as a role model seriously. I am committed to making positive changes and I plan to use what I have learned to set a good example and help make a difference in the world around me."
