She Married & Then Divorced Within A Month, Wife Raising Twins As Single Mother
In an interview with SI.com (2013) Brittney came out as a lesbian. Soon after, in August of 2014, she announced that she was engaged to fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson. It seemed like everything was going great for Brittney.
However, things got ugly between the girlfriends as they got into a physical fight only eight months after the engagement.
After that, things were momentarily calm; girlfriend Glory became wife Glory on 8 May 2015. But that was not to stay so for longer.
Only a month after being married the couple announced that Brittney’s wife was pregnant with twins. The very next day, Brittney filed for a divorce, believing that her wife had been cheating on her with a man.
Since the divorce in 2016, Glory has been raising the twins on her own, as a single working mother.
Brittney Found Love Again & Got Engaged To New Girlfriend
Three years after the ordeal with Glory, Brittney found the love again, as she was engaged to her current girlfriend, Cherelle Watson, in 2nd August this year.
Brittney met Cherelle when both were studying at the Baylor University. Owing to various circumstances around them, the couple had split.
But they reconnected recently and started dating again. Before anybody knew, the girlfriends were fiances.
