CUSTODY BATTLE THICKENS
Former LA Basketball Wives Star, Gloria Govan, was recently issued a restraining order from her ex-husband and former NBA Star, Matt Barnes. Earlier on in the week, Govan was charged with child endangerment, which granted the restraining order 0f 100 yards away. The incident occurred when Govan decided to get the children from school on a day that Barnes was designated to do so. As many of you know, Gloria and Matt has had one of the most intense and prolonged custody battles recorded in Hollywood. When Matt arrived, he demanded the boys go with him. After the children got in the car, Gloria pursued him and the children, blocked him in with her automobile, and eventually a verbal altercation followed.
After her arrest, Matt Barnes deemed his ex-wife an endangerment to his children, and filed a restraining order, as well as documents to remove Govan’s custody of their children permanently. Gloria Govan was court ordered to stay away from Matt Barnes, the children, and also their school. But Barnes did not let up there. He has also filed documents to keep Govan’s current fiance and ex-team player of Matt, Derek Fisher, from being involved in anything concerning the case. After all, accusations of Fisher and Gloria having an affair, while being on the Lakers with Barnes, started the downhill spiral of resentment and animosity between the two.
Govan has hired attorney, Mark Gross to argue her case.
