Bye, Felicia. Well, in this case, it’s Bye, Glory as WNBA star Brittney Griner got some good news today in her divorce battle. The two WNBA players married earlier this year, just days after a fight that led to a suspension for Griner. Though the marriage lasted just a month, Johnson, who is now pregnant with twins she says the two agreed on having via in-vitro surgery, asked for alimony and for Griner to continue making payments on her Mercedes. But today a Phoenix judge said ‘Nope.’

Arizona’s ABC 15 reports: 

On August 17, Johnson sought $20,000 a month after her 28-day marriage ended with Phoenix Mercury player Brittney Griner.

Johnson’s request was denied on Thursday morning.

In court, Johnson’s lawyers argued because she’s pregnant with twins, via an IVF procedure she underwent while still with Griner, her doctor won’t clear her to play basketball so she won’t get paid.

Appearing by phone, Johnson said she’s already in debt.

She’s asking $7,000 a month for her food budget and $6,000 for hired help and the rest to live on.

“When I go to the grocery store I literally spend $300 every week, sometimes it’s less because I don’t have it,” Johnson testified.
