Brittney Griner Will Start Paying For Her Daughters’ Upkeep
Former WNBA star Brittney Griner has finally agreed to begin financially supporting her twin baby girls with estranged wife Glory Johnson.
Griner will start paying Johnson $2,516 in child support beginning May 1, after the pair appeared via telephone for a hearing April 14 on their divorce in Maricopa County Superior Court.
The child support is part of a larger settlement package that the pair agreed to in an Arizona court last week, which will also cover medical expenses and childcare for the couple’s daughters, Ava Simone and Solei Diem.
Griner – who the court found is making $1.1 million a year – will also pay 90 percent of Johnson’s childcare costs, or an extra $2,835 a month for two nannies. Griner’s childcare contribution will decrease as the girls get older, according to the hearing minutes. She’ll also have to pay Johnson $8,505 in back childcare expenses.
