Judge Denies Brittney Griner’s Annulment Request, Glory Johnson Responds

The tumultuous relationship of WNBA stars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson took another unfortunate turn.

The tumultuous relationship of WNBA stars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson took another unfortunate turn. A judge has denied the request by Griner for annulment of the couple’s marriage, according to People. Griner filed the petition back in June–just 28 days after she exchanged “I do’s.”

The confirmation of Griner’s decision to annul their union came immediately after Johnson’s announcement that she is pregnant. Their wedding ceremony followed a domestic violence dispute that occurred between Johnson and Griner six weeks prior. According to Griner, she "attempted to postpone the wedding several times" before her decision to annul, and that Johnson was secretly in contact with an ex. The Tulsa Shock forward, who is carrying twins, took to Instagram following the denying of the annulment.

"It's not right to proclaim to The World that someone cheated on you, without having Legitimate Proof," she wrote. "I'm not that type of Person, never have been, never will be."

In a sit-down with ESPN following the filing of the annulment, Griner emotionally relayed her doubt that she and Johnson could have maintained a healthy relationship.

“Prior to us getting married, I knew I shouldn’t have went through with it and I talked to Glory about it but sometimes, you feel pressured into things,” she told Kate Fagan. “With everything going on — counseling, classes — it just wasn’t the right way to start off a marriage.”

Last month, Johnson requested $20,000 in child support and $10,000 in spousal support from Griner, citing Griner’s “far superior control” over their finances. Johnson also recently told People that she was "thankful the annulment was rejected because an act of marriage did occur."

"Together we made life changing decisions which impacted our lives collectively," she said. "And we both should be held responsible for those decisions."

Morgan Freeman's step-granddaughter, E'Dena Hines is finally getting justice. Lamar Davenport, the man who killed Hines in 2015, has reportedly been sentenced to 20 years in prison, the Manhattan D.A. Cyrus R. Vance Jr. confirms.

Davenport's sentencing was mandated on Thursday (Jan. 17). He was convicted of manslaughter in May 2018. As previously reported, Davenport – who was dating Hines at the time – reportedly killed her in Aug. 2015 outside of their New York City apartment. Witnesses claimed that he repeatedly stabbed her as yelled out comments about religion.  E'Dena was 33.

Davenport was acquitted of second-degree murder after his lawyer argued that he was high on PCP at the time of the murder. A judge ultimately found him guilty of first-degree manslaughter however.

After he's released from prison, Davenport will reportedly be placed under post-release supervision for five years.

As previously reported, Soulja first made the declaration during his interview on The Breakfast Club on Jan. 16.

DAWN Relishes In Self-love On New Song "Sauce"

DAWN is back with a sexy single off her forthcoming project, New Breed. "Sauce" is a sonic ode to pleasing all her hedonistic sexual desires after a long work week. Lyrically, the song is filled with suggestive lines and clever double-entendres that are far from coy when describing what she wants in the sack.

Just as much as “Sauce” is about sex, it’s also about basking in self-pleasure that comes after genuine self-love. In a statement published by Stereogum, the former Danity Kane member described the message behind the song:

“‘Sauce" is about women taking pride in their prowess, and about being raised to celebrate my skin,” DAWN said. “I lost focus of that when so many men degraded and disrespected my brown skin. ‘Sauce’ is about being bathed in your own beauty, being sexy for you. The new breed of women are unapologetic about sex and the way they choosing to express themselves.”

DAWN recently joined Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex of Danity Kane for the DK3 reunion tour across the U.S. In an interview with Billboard, the Louisiana native revealed she wants to give fans more of her authentic self on New Breed.

“This album is my relationship with New Orleans, me as a woman, and how being from New Orleans has created a person in me that acts and sees things a certain way. "'Jealousy'" is a prime example of that,” she said. “I just want to give you the girl from the 9th Ward that you guys only met once on [MTV's] Making The Band.”

Listen to "Sauce" below. New Breed drops on Jan, 25.
