Brittney Griner remains in custody in Russia, as the WNBA star was sentenced to nine years in prison for drug smuggling. 

While the Griner situation has sparked debate back in the United States, the WNBA star's ex-wife has made her opinion on the situation extremely clear.

Glory Johnson, the WNBA player who was married to Griner for a brief time, made it clear that she still has support for her ex-wife. 

“I’ve really struggled … trying to find the words to express how I feel about all this coming out without breaking emotionally or overstepping ... But honestly, I don’t want to keep answering calls and texts about another individual’s situation, so I’ll say this," Glory told her followers.

“Over the past several years, we still call each other to share our feelings, secrets, & even Life goals.”

It's nice to hear that Griner's ex-wife is still supportive and hopeful of her return to the United States.

Hopefully, Griner will be brought home soon.
