Brittney Griner Tastes the Big Ugly of Marriage Equality
WNBA player Glory Johnson, who had never been with a woman before, married Brittney Griner in 2015 even after the two were arrested for assaulting each other. Griner later filed to annul their marriage just 28 days later, claiming Glory cheated with a man. Glory later gave birth to twins via IVF in October.
In April, Griner finally agreed to pay child support for the Twins she “fathered” with her estranged wife Glory Johnson. She agreed to pay Johnson $2,516 in child support beginning May 1. 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.
Shortly after that agreement, Glory Johnson, who dated men before Griner, quickly began to date men and has now settled with a 30-year-old man who currently lives at home with his parents. There are many words that could be used to describe this situation, but the word that I will use is salt.
Brittney Griner: This Is Marriage Equality
Welcome to marriage equality my LGBT friends. I strongly support the ability for the state to issue marriage licenses to gay people like they do straight people, but that does mean you will be married like straight people which includes all of the problems that can entail. Equality is equality after all.
It looks like Johnson, in traditional hetero language, is a golddigger. She forged a relationship with a highly compensated athlete, got “pregnant” by her, and then quickly divorced her after she had the child and was guaranteed financial stability for the next 18 years. The only solace that Griner can take is that a judge denied Johnson’s 20,000 dollar monthly spousal support request so it could’ve been worse. Marriage, you gotta love it.
