Brittney GrinerThe wife of a spokesman Cherelle was left furious after the couple could not celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary by phone over the weekend.

A June 20th conversation with the Associated Press, Cherelle explained that she and the WNBA star—who is currently behind bars in Russia—were unable to speak on the phone to commemorate their special day June 18 because she said the embassy in Moscow was not staffed.

“I felt distraught. “I was upset. “I was tired and fed up,” she said to the publication. “I think I sent BG’s agent a text. She was like, ‘I don’t want to speak to anyone. It is going to take me time to process my feelings and then I will just let everyone know that I am unavailable at the moment. It just knocked my out. It didn’t make me well.

The conversation would have been the first time the couple had spoken since Brittney, a seven-time WNBA All-Star, was detained at a Russian airport on Feb. 17 after local authorities alleged they found vape cartridges containing cannabis oil in her bag. Brittney was released from pre-trial custody earlier this month and allowed to remain in detention until July 2.
