Hmmmmm. This is actually surprising news to me! Although teaser episodes of Gloria's reality show Basketball Wives: LA hinted at a possible split, I just assumed they were pulling our legs. But nope! The couple that everybody loves to hate are officially DONE!
WOW! Los Angeles Laker Matt Barnes and “Basketball Wives: LA” star Gloria Govan have called it quits after a lengthy engagement. The couple has been through its ups and downs; they called off their wedding which was supposed to take place last year and also faced domestic violence accusations. Ironically, Gloria admitted on a recent episode of “BBW: LA” that she was finally in a place where she could give Matt the “deuces” if need be, but then later stated the he was definitely “the one”. Hmmm, well obviously something went down and now the couple has broken things off. Matt released the statement below:Oh, and another thing! I was being my nosy self on Twitter the other day (as I normally am), and Matt had an exchange with a fan who suggested he marry Gloria or someone else will. To which Matt replied, "He can have her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Ut Oh! Hopefully it won't get ugly....
“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.”
The former couple will share custody of their 3-year-old twins Carter Kelly and Isiah Michael.
