The Phoenix Mercury center released a statement to the sports news site’s Kate Fagan on Friday (June 5), reading:
“Last Wednesday, Glory and I agreed to either legally separate, get divorced, or annul our marriage. I can confirm that today I filed for an annulment. 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.”
The athletes engaged in a physical altercation in April this year, which reportedly put a strain on the relationship. Johnson, is also pregnant with the couple’s first child, and revealed that she’ll sit out the remainder of the WNBA season.
The Tulsa Shock forward also stated that she wasn’t aware of Griner’s motion to file for an annulment, TMZ reports. A rep for Johnson states “she knows how important marriage is and made a lifetime commitment and decision to spend the rest of her life with Brittney.”
