One Time Couple In Az. Divorce Court; Twins Still In The Hospital
Lawyers for the estranged couple were in Maricopa County Superior Court for a status conference on the divorce, and Griner’s lawyer Tiffany McMillan said that while they’d been able to settle who owns what, the issue of paternity of Johnson’s twin baby girls was still up in the air, transcripts obtained by BOSSIP show.
“We’ve got partial good news, McMillan said. “We were able to resolve the property issues. The parentage issues are still outstanding.”
In her divorce petition, Griner said she’d been coerced into participating with her ex’s IVF treatments, but Johnson said in hers that Griner was down for everything from the beginning.
Now, Johnson’s lawyers have to hand over her medical records from the fertility clinic to Griner’s legal team. Whatever is in those records will determine how they’ll proceed on the divorce – and whether they’ll go to trial.
Johnson and Griner married in May 2015, just weeks after cops arrested them for a violent fight in their suburban Phoenix, Az. home. The couple announced Johnson was pregnant in June, with Griner filing to annul the marriage the next day.
Meanwhile Johnson’s twins, Ava Simone and Solei Diem, who were born four months premature, are still in a Tennessee hospital, Griner’s lawyer Stacy Glick said.
A judge set the their next status conference for next month. Griner, who is currently playing in Russia, won’t have to appear.
