Brittany Renner is a prominent social media personality who has been romantically connected at one time or another to James Harden, Drake, Lil Uzi Vert, Jamal Murray, Ben Simmons, Trey Songz, Chris Brown and Colin Kaepernick.
In 2021 Renner found herself in the news for her tumultuous relationship with Charlotte Hornets forward, P.J. Washington.
Renner and Washington got together when he was 18 and she was 27. When things popped off originally, he was still a member of Kentucky’s basketball team. Their blessed union survived his college stint and ran through her having his baby. That’s when the train went of the tracks.
This week Renner appeared on Instagram and made a stunning revelation: she moved back in with her mom amid her increasingly questionable financial situation.

“Can you imagine being 29 years old with a baby living back with your parent because you were kicked out of your house (I left willingly because I go where I’m celebrated not tolerated) with nowhere to go without a vehicle?” she wrote.
“Can you imagine NOT being mentally/physically/emotionally ready to get back in the gym let alone host a club after just having a baby but you have to work to take care of your child?
“What about being harassed about receiving 200K in child support? (WHICH IS NOT TRUE IDK WHY ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD BELIEVE SUCH A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT BUT IT’S CLEAR THE REAL PANDEMIC IS HOW STUPID PEOPLE ARE) Still no? Well what about being accused of being a pedophile? A gold digger? Better yet! A spiteful BM keeping their son from his Dad when he wasn’t even in the same state at the time?
“All of this has been my reality on top of trying to get things afloat financially, getting back in the groove of social media after being falling off the face of the earth, and being a new mother. There isn’t a person I know that could handle what I’ve been put through.”
For a while there Renner seemed to be on top of the world. She was soaking up her newfound popularity and thriving off it. But her most recent public statements paint a different picture.
In an interview with VLADTV she revealed that she was mortified by some of her previous comments about how easy it was to entrap athletes because they don’t wear condoms.
It will be interesting to see where Renner goes from here. She is still extremely notorious and popular, as evidenced by the fact that a college football coach literally invited her to go have some fun with his players.
So clearly she isn’t exactly persona non grata among sports’ biggest stars.

Will she eventually be able to get her financial situation sorted? Time will tell.
