Glory Johnson : Brittney Griner's ex seeks $20K a month in spousal support

Glory Johnson is seeking temporary spousal support and attorney fees from Brittney Griner, who petitioned to annul their marriage.

Now, Glory wants $20,000 a month from Brittney, plus another $10,000 racks for attorney fees.

ESPN reports Johnson, 24, filed court documents in late June in Maricopa County, Arizona. Johnson’s lawyer Stasy Click wrote in the filing “Griner has far superior control over the family’s financial resources” and Johnson is “without the necessary financial means to pay for legal representation in this matter.”

An evidentiary hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 17 for both parties to present their petitions.

On May 8, the former basketball power couple said “I do” in a lavish wedding, just weeks after a domestic violence dispute. Then, a month later Griner, filed an annulment. In an emotional interview, Griner, 24, referred to her nuptials with Johnson as a mistake and said she was pressured to go through with the wedding.
