I know Shaunie O’Neal is somewhere doing the tootsie roll in celebration of this news. It’s sad news, but we all know O’Neal had been questioning Gloria Govan and Matt Barnes’ relationship since the wedding that never happened. Well folks, it looks like that wedding really won’t be happening at all, because Matt Barnes (of all people) has spread the news that he and the “Basketball Wives” star are finished.
“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.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, Barnes put Govan on front street through Twitter just last week after one follower told him he should marry her, or someone else would. His response: “He can have her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Govan didn’t take that mess lying down, and responded to his statement by saying the following through the good ‘ol social media ish starter: “If someone is dumb enough to walk away, be smart enough to let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you.”
Dang…and they were just starting to look like they had their relationship on lock (remember when they went to dinner with the Christies, and Matt was all mushy-gooshy about Gloria?). But let’s be real, we all know reality TV has a way of putting relationships in the hole, especially when you have to fake being happy for the cameras continuously. It’s just sad to think that they can’t work things out for the benefit of those little twin boys (3-year-old Carter and Isiah), but they’ve obviously got some issues if they’re playing that mess out on Twitter. Hey, if they aren’t really happy, there’s no point in exposing the kids to drama. Ya feel me?
Did you see this coming?
