Glory Johnson is straight, not a lesbian

Glory Johnson Brittney Griner

Was the marriage between Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson doomed from the start? While most can agree that getting married a few weeks after a domestic violence incident is a terrible idea, there were some other serious warning signs about the whole relationship in general.

For starters, Johnson, a two-time all-star with the Tulsa Shock, is straight, not a lesbian, and even Griner knew that. Griner even thought to herself that pursuing Johnson, who is straight, could end up being a bad idea.

Check out some of these quotes from a May piece on the couple in The New York Times:

“Plus, Glory is straight,” Ms. Griner said. “That was another reason why I thought this could end really bad.”

“I’m not a lesbian,” Ms. Johnson said. “But Brittney is different.

“I still don’t really feel like I’m attracted to females in general. It’s just that I’m attracted to just one person.”

Johnson told The Times that she was attracted to Griner because the Phoenix Mercury star understood her and supported her while showing her love.

“It was weird, but it was so comfortable it didn’t feel like it was wrong,” Ms. Johnson told The Times. “But I didn’t know how I was going to tell my family and my friends.”

She eventually told her family, and they understood the relationship after seeing the two together.

In the article, they even talk about the couple having children, which they say they planned to have happen sooner rather than later. Griner wanted a bigger family than Johnson, but it was agreed upon that Johnson would be the one to get pregnant. Now, less than a month later, Johnson is pregnant and Griner has filed for an annulment under grounds of fraud. She also seemed to question Johnson’s pregnancy, making us wonder how Johnson became pregnant.

The relationship seemed to be a bad idea from the start.
