Despite their assault against each other and arrests last week, Brittney Griner and fiancée Glory Johnson are still planning to get married.

Johnson wanted to make that clear, taking to her Instagram account over the weekend to say that the WNBA stars are still planning their nuptials and will address their relationship issues through counseling.

"WE'RE OK! @brittneygriner and I are home, injury-free, and still wedding planning!" Johnson wrote in an Instagram post, accompanied by a candid shot of the couple cuddling. "We know we must set better examples, even during the most trying times, and we are EXTREMELY sorry for all the negative attention we brought to ourselves, our family, and the league. We are actively seeking help in order to do BETTER. Thanks for all the Love, Support, and Prayers that were sent our way. #LoveLife #StillBlessed #WorkInProgress #NobodysPerfect." 

This comes after the two 24-year-olds reportedly got into a heated argument last Wednesday night in the home they recently purchased together. It turned physical enough to the point that police were called and they were arrested for assault and disorderly conduct.


ESPN reported that Griner suffered a cut on her right wrist and had a bite mark from Johnson on the middle finger of her right hand. Meanwhile, Johnson had a cut on her lip. 

Griner is a center for the defending WNBA champion Phoenix Mercury while Johnson plays for the Tulsa Shock.
