The WNBA couple remain married after an Arizona judge shuts down Griner's request to annul the union

An Arizona judge has rejected Brittney Griner's request to annul her short-lived marriage to Glory Johnson, reports PEOPLE.

The WBNA stars remain legally married as they continue to battle it out in court over temporary spousal support. The court decision means Griner will maintain her position as the couple's breadwinner, as Johnson is currently pregnant with twins.

Johnson announced the baby news in June, just one day before Griner filed to annul the marriage. Johnson believes she is owed $20,000 a month in spousal support because she's on a reduced salary from missing this year's WNBA season.


While the decision didn't work out in Griner's favor, she says she's still going forward with the divorce and is taking the necessary steps to dissolve the marriage. From PEOPLE:

"[The decision] also keeps open the door for Griner's divorce request – filed along with the request for annulment – to proceed. In its exact language, the court found "no legal basis for annulment," while stating 'the case shall proceed on the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with Minor Children.'

'In a statement to PEOPLE, Griner said: 'I respect the judge's decision. We are moving forward with the divorce on a 28-day marriage.'

Following the decision and in response to Johnson's claims that Griner was unfaithful during their relationship, Johnson wrote on Instagram: "It's not right to proclaim to The World that someone cheated on you, without having Legitimate Proof. I'm not that type of Person, never have been, never will be. #TrustIssues #SoThankful #Blessed #HonestyIsThePolicy."
