Last week, Brittney Griner faced a tough setback in her public split with her estranged wife Glory Johnson when a judge denied her request to annul their marriage. Although it seemed Griner might take another loss when it comes to who should pay who in the divorce, reports have revealed that Johnson’s hefty request for spousal support has been denied.
According to TMZ, Johnson had requested that Griner pay her $20K a month in order to cover things like food, hired help, and even the expensive monthly note of her Mercedes Benz. Johnson argued that it was “spousal maintenance” and that Griner needed to keep her living the life she became accustomed to in the mere 28 days they were married.
However, the judge denied the entirety of Johnson’s “spousal maintenance” request, including her request that Griner pay her $10K for her attorney’s fees.
Griner’s legal team spoke with TMZ and explained that they’re happy with the judge’s ruling and that “a 28 day marriage does not entitle Glory Johnson to Brittney’s money for purposes of alimony, Mercedes car payments or attorney’s fees.”
However, Johnson and Griner’s courtroom battle isn’t over yet. Johnson still argues that, despite Griner’s claims otherwise, her estranged wife has a financial responsibility to take care of unborn twins.
