And we’re back here again. After calling off their engagement last year, but convincing the public they’re still a couple, Laker baller Matt Barnes and "Basketball Wife" Gloria Govan have called it quits.
Deets inside plus what Matt & Glo had to say about it today….
I have a feeling certain Miami BBW’s are going to have something to say soon. But Matt and Gloria have recently decided to end their relationship. Matt emailed out a statement today about the split:
“I’d like to address the rumors surrounding mine and Gloria’s relationship. We have reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways at this time. We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best.”
And 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!!!
The L.A. Times reports a heated twitter exchange between Matt (this dude and his damn Tweets) and a fan was a tell-tale sign:
Perhaps the most telling sign regarding Barnes’ feelings about Govan came last week during a Twitter exchange with a fan. That person suggested Barnes should marry her or else someone else will. Responded Barnes: "He can have her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Meanwhile, Govan retweeted the following message on 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."
The two share 3-year-old twins Carter Kelly & Isaiah Michael, as well as a home in Palos Verde. Well the next season of Basketball Barely Wives should be interesting….
