Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan: It's Over!

by at . Comments

Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan of the NBA's LA Lakers and VH1's Basketball Wives fame, respectively, have announced their split. They had a nice run together, mostly.

After calling off their engagement last year, but convincing the public they're still a couple, the two confirmed the breakup we ALL knew was coming this week.

Matt emailed out a statement today about the split from Gloria Govan (sister of Gilbert Arenas baby mana/Shaq mistress Laura Govan), saying the following:

Gloria Govan, Matt Barnes

“I’d like to address rumors surrounding mine and Gloria’s relationship. We've reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways. We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best.”

Gloria just tweeted her statement saying:

"I'm sure you guys are hearing a ton of buzz about Matt and Me breaking up, sorry to say... its true!!!!!! But the most important thing is focusing on my kids and continuing to have a good relationship with their father, thanks for your support!!!"

A heated Twitter exchange this month between Matt and a fan - who suggested Barnes should Govan or else someone else will - was a bad sign.

Responded Barnes: "He can have her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Classy. Meanwhile, she Tweeted Saturday: "If someone is dumb enough to walk away, be smart enough to let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you."

Well spoken, Gloria Govan. Well spoken.



hey hey hey is anyone there? where is my comment? i dont see it.


Smh Never forget where you come from! Every1 has there ups and downs. The Basketball baby mommas and 1o year girlfriends, were all n her space and she didnt have to put her business on blast for them hatn az hos! She did right for trying to keep Negativity away! Im not a fan of none of these reality show people. Too Messy!


I never have like Gloria from day one. I don't like her "I'm better than everyone cuz I have Matt" attitude. Her bad attitude does not enhance her looks at all! I especially don't like her manly looking sister either.
Gloria was telling others that they wish they had a relationship like her's and Matt' look at you Gloria! You're just like all the others you talked down to! Just get your big child support check like all the others!


Gloria straight made an ass of herself from the jump. She knew way back in The Basketball Wives of Miami days that shit wasn't right between her and Matt but she kept playing it off, trying to act like her and Matt's relationship was the greatest thing since slice bread. She deserves this egg on her face. I hope she learns something, wises up and tries to be more than just some ball player's baby mama and stop waiting around for Matt cause if he really wanted her she'd be wifey already.


Well I guess Matt and Gloria could no longer go on pretending there were so "In Love" and had to face reality. Well its about time!!! I think everyone know how fake there relationship anyways. She tried to hard to convince everyone she had this "Wonderful, Special Relationship" for one if it real and you that much in love, why feel the need to go all out to prove it.


I wanted to like Gloria, but to me, she try to act like she was so much better then the other girls. For some reason she thought that her situation was one of a kind, and flawless. Maybe she wouldn't look so stupid if she would stop being so fake for TV. She try to fool everyone and pretend that her and Matt was this extraordinary, one of a kind couple. By the way they were a weird looking couple, it always seem fake from day one, cause she tried to hard.


NBA Lockout---no job, 2 kids, Palos Verdes home no one can pay for...really??? "JUST GO GIRL!"


I'm with thattruth5...they did not look like they were made for each other AT ALL! It looked like a fake and forced relationship. I think she is a smart girl and she can make it on her own. She eluded in one of the episodes that she would be just fine if they didn't work out...well there is power in words- because look what happened! She can do better!


I like Gloria. I think she is smart and will be just fine. I liked them as a couple, but he clearly is not ready to be tied down to anyone. Look at his eyes when Big Boy asked them a question about their relationship at the radio station. It was very awkward. I don't think anyone is laughing at anyone, because all these women are in the same boat. Any of them out there that thinks that an athlete with any amount of fame will be monogamous or ready to marry because you drop a an idiot. Don't hold your breathe, just enjoy it while it lasts. NEXT!


@thetruth5 I think she meant Royce. Gloia was the main one telling Royce "she will never be a wifey w/ a ring" now Gloria's is in the same boat. She's just another groupie baby momma.
