NBA star’s relationship with Glory Johnson explored

The 30-year-old Olympian has been married in the past.

Brittney had a short-lived marriage with fellow WNBA star Glory Johnson. The pair were married between 2015 and 2016.

At the time, domestic violence allegations surfaced against Brittney. The Olympian pleaded guilty and even enrolled in domestic violence courses. However, her wife, Glory, did not do the same, thus fueling backlash from the Phoenix Mercury star for throwing her under the bus. 

When issues between the two reached a boiling point, Brittney filed for an annulment. When a judge denied the annulment, the two-headed straight for divorce.

Brittney alleged that Glory had cheated on her. The WNBA star also refused to participate in Glory’s pregnancy. A judge denied her spousal support in the divorce battle.

The now mother of two claimed in an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, that the twins were born premature and she was struggling to raise them alone as her finances floundered.
