The marriage between WNBA stars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson-Griner is reportedly over after less than a month. According to TMZ, Griner is in the process of getting an annulment.

Griner and Johnson-Griner became engaged last August. The reigning WNBA Defensive Player of the Year posted a photo of her proposal to Instagram:

Kate Fagan of ESPN provided a statement from Griner:

Lindsey Adler of BuzzFeed provided an excerpt from court documents:

On May 8, the two were married at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix. TMZ also revealed Thursday that Johnson-Griner is pregnant with their first child and will miss the 2015 season as a result.

"It has always been a dream of mine to start a family with someone I love," Johnson-Griner said in a statement on WNBA.com. "Being a professional athlete that plays year round, there is never a perfect time to get pregnant without putting my career on hold."

Johnson-Griner averaged 14.7 points and 9.2 rebounds for the Tulsa Shock last year, while Griner won a title with the Phoenix Mercury, where she posted 15.6 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.8 blocks a night.

The league handed both players a seven-game suspension to start the season after the two were arrested during a domestic violence incident in April.
