Brittney Griner Agrees To Pay Child Support For Twins She Fathered With Glory Johnson
Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson were married for just 4 weeks before they decided to get a divorce after Glory Johnson became pregnant. Once the marriage was over, Griner denied she fathered the twins and the two have been embroiled in a court battle over child support ever since.
According to Bossip.com:
“Former WNBA star Brittney Griner has finally agreed to begin financially supporting her twin baby girls with estranged wife Glory Johnson.
Griner will start paying Johnson $2,516 in child support beginning May 1, after the pair appeared via telephone for a hearing April 14 on their divorce in Maricopa County Superior Court.
The child support is part of a larger settlement package that the pair agreed to in an Arizona court last week, which will also cover medical expenses and childcare for the couple’s daughters, Ava Simone and Solei Diem.
Griner – who the court found is making $1.1 million a year – will also pay 90 percent of Johnson’s childcare costs, or an extra $2,835 a month for two nannies. Griner’s childcare contribution will decrease as the girls get older, according to the hearing minutes. She’ll also have to pay Johnson $8,505 in back childcare expenses.”
Glory Johnson released a statement:
“At no stage was Brittney pressured to undertake the fertility process,” Johnson’s statement said, in opposition to Griner’s claim that she did not know how long Johnson had been pregnant. “In fact, throughout the entire process, Brittney was a willing participant, consenting and signing all the necessary documents that needed to be signed in order to move forward with the treatments.”
