PHOENIX (AP) — A Maricopa County Superior Court judge has denied Glory Johnson’s request for $20,000 a month in spousal support from WNBA star Brittney Griner after their annulled marriage.

Griner and Johnson were married on May 9, three weeks after the two WNBA players were arrested on domestic violence charges.

The marriage was annulled a month later, one day after Johnson announced she’s pregnant.

Johnson announced this week that she’s having twins and had been seeking financial support from Griner because she is unable to play for the Tulsa Shock while she’s pregnant. She also asked for attorney fees and for Griner to make payments on Johnson’s Mercedes Benz.

Griner, who plays for the Phoenix Mercury, contended she could not afford to pay Johnson $20,000 a month.
