This breakup might just be fodder for reality TV ratings, but Lakers bench warmer Matt Barnes sounded sincere when he said it was over between him and his baby mama, Gloria Govan.
In an interview with VH1 blog, Gloria sounded like a potential stalker when she said “Matt and I do have kids” and “we’ll be in each other’s lives forever.”
Although Gloria sounds extremely confident in this interview, her words conceal a warning to any breezy who is even thinking about coming between her and her baby daddy.
VH1: I saw the news about you and Matt, can you talk about your split?
Gloria: “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.”
VH1: I just asked your sister Laura about it and she said she thinks you’ll get back together.
Gloria: 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.
