Matt Barnes Says ex-wife Gloria Govan Is Stopping Him From Seeing His Kids [VIDEO]
Matt Barnes is a tool. Gloria Govan is a tool. They were actually perfect for one another in many ways. Okay, mainly just one way; their terrible, terrible personalities.

The contemptuous former couple are attempting to co-parent their 8-year-old twins together and it’s going about as well as you would expect. 

According to sources, Matt recently filed legal documents, pleading with a judge to overhaul the current custody arrangement, as there are allegedly logistical issues surrounding how and when he is able to spend time with his kids. He has reportedly offered to pay travel expenses for his little ones so that they can tag along with him while he travels during the NBA season but nothing seems to have come of this.

Gloria, on the other hand, claims that Matt occasionally has “unreasonable” last-minute requests. Likeeeee?

Ugh, sorry, she was just SO insufferable on Basketball Wives LA back in the day. As was he actually! The point is that we find it hard to feel too much compassion for either of them, due to their well-documented history of spiteful sparring and petty maneuvers. 

That aside, we hope that this resolves itself sooner than later. Gloria and Matt will be reporting to court in April though, so we probably have a lot of pointed social media posts from Matt to look forward to.

Oh and if you aren’t sure what our last snide little comment is referring to, Matt has no qualms about venting about his situation on social media.

A video posted by NEW ACCOUNT (SPREAD THE WORD) (@thejasminebrand_) on

To date, he has shared a video of himself explaining his viewpoint [see above], publicly talked about the fact that he hasn’t been “allowed” to see his sons for over a month and aired some dirty digs back in September, posting “I give you MORE than enough money per/month to maintain your life style & for you & those boys to have whatever you want & do whatever you want … Even after you showed the world your foul ways!! Now your telling me if I don’t pay an invoice I had absolutely nothing to do with, I can’t see my kinds…#DopeMom #choosewiselyfellas”.

In all fairness though, he does seem pretty devoted to his children. Hm.
