Her Marriage With Basketball Star Glory Johnson "A Huge Mistake"
For those that don’t remember the roller coaster ride that has been Griner’s romantic life, just weeks before marrying Johnson in April, she and Johnson ended up being arrested after a domestic fight.
Surprisingly, the couple still wed and just a few weeks later, Johnson announced she was pregnant with their first child.
Then, the couple let loose another shocker last week when Johnson revealed a day later that she was filing for an annulment.
The 24-year-old woman, recently speaking to ESPN in an emotional sit-down interview, said of her April wedding: "I knew I shouldn't have gone through with it."
"Sometimes you feel pressured into things but I went along with it," she said before burying her face into her hands and sobbing. "I just know that it was a mistake now."
Less than a month after the couple was arrested on domestic violence-related charges at their recently purchased Phoenix-area home, they tied the knot.
They were both suspended for seven games for their arrests. Then one day after word leaked of Johnson's shock pregnancy, news broke of the couple filing for an annulment.
Asked the mistake she made, Griner replied: "staying there."
"I should have left," she said of the moments before their April 22 arrest.
"You see it getting heated, you see it escalating, walk away. No matter what's said. No matter what's done," she said. "Domestic violence is never OK no matter what the situation is."
But she should have left their relationship too, she now concedes.
"It wasn't the right way to start out a marriage," she said.
