“The Worst Is Yet To Come”: Meghan Markle & Other Stars Whose Family Members Caused Wedding Drama
Gloria Govan and Matt Barnes
A week before their wedding in 2010, Gloria Govan and Matt Barnes informed their friends via text message that they were canceling their wedding. When the news got out, Govan’s Basketball Wives co-stars, who weren’t a fan of her, made sure to rub it in her face. But Govan and Barnes said in an interview with VIBE they simply didn’t marry because they didn’t want to rush into anything.
“Matt and I feel like marriage is something that should not be rushed into,” Govan said at the time. “It wasn’t any outside party. We’re committed and dedicated to working on our relationship and we’re still together but again, we felt like this wasn’t something that was in our hearts at the time. Marriage is something that is definitely our goal but again, we’re not rushing into something that we just feel like isn’t right for us at the time so we’re just taking the time to work on our family.”
The couple went ahead and married in 2013, only to officially divorce in 2016.
