We reported earlier this week that the wedding of “Basketball Wives” castmate Gloria Govan and her fiance Matt Barnes had been called off.
(Read Barnes’ response here: “NBA Wives” Gloria Govan & Matt Barnes’ Wedding Cancelled)
Now, more details are coming out as to why.
TheYBF received a letter:
This is regarding Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan’s failed wedding. I have known Matt for 10+ years and his sister and I are best friends.. Gloria is a gold digger and NOBODY in Matt’s family likes her. Gloria got pregnant after dating Matt for only 10 months. She planned it. When Matt lost his mother from an unfortunate battle with cancer, Gloria’s family took Matt under their wings so that allowed him to let his guard down. Matt ended their relationship previously because Matt discovered Gloria was writing checks to pay off the debt her mother got her into (they have the same name), only to find out two weeks later she was pregnant with the boys. Two days before Matt’s charity event Athletes vs. Cancer which was held on the weekend of July 24th, Gloria took a golf club to Matt’s 150k mercedes busting out the windshield and other damage… That was the straw that broke the camels back for Matt. Matt’s true love is former Miss California Tamiko [Nash].
Anyways, EVERYBODY loved Tamiko because she is a genuinely sweet girl. I hope Matt ends this relationship with Gloria indefinitely. Currently, Gloria still resides in Matt’s house, but she sleeps in the guest room. She claims she won’t go to her home in Oakland without the boys. SOURCE
Hmm…we’re not sure what to believe yet, but this is an interesting story.
