Griner, who plays for the Phoenix Mercury, popped the question in August 2014. The pair's nuptials come just two weeks after they were both arrested for allegedly assaulting each other.

"We're okay! @brittneygriner and I are home, injury-free, and still wedding planning!" Johnson captioned an Instagram pic of the two at the time. "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."

She added: "We are actively seeking help in order to do BETTER. Thanks for all the love, support, and prayers that were sent our way."
