Gloria Govan and Matt Barnes’ split may have not come as a surprise to the viewers of “Basketball Wives” – a show that follows the exes, informal girlfriends, and jump-off’s of NBA ballers. Though the two seemed solid on screen, Barnes released a statement last week revealing that the two have decided to go their separate ways.
Gloria spoke to VH1 during the show’s reunion show taping:
Can you talk about your split?
Matt and I do have kids and we’re trying to be as cordial as we can right now and we’ll be in each other’s lives forever, but as relationships go, we have our ups and downs. It hasn’t been an easy ride moving across the country twice, having kids at 21 when I just graduated college, it hasn’t been easy. And now Matt has the lockout, so everything has been stressful with the breakup, the lockout, everything, it’s been a whirlwind. But we’re still friends and we’re still working things out and I wish him nothing but the best.
You sister said she thinks you’ll get back together.
Of course she does. My whole family is rooting for that man. I swear. They would pick him over me. I’ve learned my lesson, never say never and I think anything is possible, but right now I’m taking my time to grow as an individual. Not only for myself but for my family. We’ll see. I’m not going to say never, I’m optimistic, but for now…we’re going our separate ways. But if our paths cross again it’s meant to be. For now, we’re just taking our time to do our own thing. And Laura of course wants it. With her situation with Gilbert (Arenas), she’s been in and out, out and in. She has a lot of experience and good advice when it comes to situations like this.
