Matt Barnes is filing for a restraining order against his ex-wife Gloria Govan on Wednesday, The Blast reports.

Barnes, 38, also plans to ask a judge to grant him full custody of his 9-year-old twin sons, Isaiah and Carter, after Govan, 33, was arrested and charged with felony child endangerment last weekend.

The former NBA star will ask a judge to strip Govan's parental rights because he believes she is a danger to him and their childrens' safety.

But Govan plans to challenge his allegations and she is preparing to fight tooth and nail for her children, according to The Blast.

On Friday, per his custody agreement, Barnes went to the boys' school to pick them up for the Labor Day Weekend. But Govan showed up at the school 5 minutes earlier and placed the children in her car.

When Barnes arrived at the school to pick up the twins, he saw them in Govan's car and ordered the children to get into his car.

An argument erupted and Barnes said Govan chased him and tried to block his car with hers. Barnes called 911, and Govan was taken into custody and released on $100,000 bond the next day.

According to sources, Barnes wants the judge to give the former “Basketball Wives” star a no-contact order. But if she does get visitation, he wants a court appointed monitor present when she visits the children.

Barnes will ask the court to order Govan to stay 100 yards away from him, the kids, and the kids' school.

Sources close to Govan tell The Blast she retained high-powered attorney Mark Gross to represent her at Wednesday’s hearing.

Barnes and Govan were childhood sweethearts who divorced in 2014 after four years of marriage. He was arrested in 2010 on suspicion of domestic violence against Govan.

    Gloria is 48 well she's in great shape for 48

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Should have been did that.... She was the fool in this situation thee whole time SMH... And she was caught

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Didn’t I tell ya Matt will destroy her

  • Bashi22

    Tell me where Gloria going to get money to pay Mark Gross. She's using all her alimony money plus child support to pay for lawyer. She could have used that money to invest for her and the boys. She so dumb, girl got a whole man at home still fighting with her ex. I'm convince now she still love Matt and that new baby on the way trigger her.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Okay Matt. Now I cannot stand Whoria Govan. But this is too far sir. She been had those kids just plain and fine til this incident.

    Too much

  • SpiceGirl

    Should've played your cards right....but noooooo....want to be an arse about shet.....NOW look what the kids have to go thru...shame....again...."LOVE YOUR CHILDREN MORE THEN YOU FAKE HATE THAT MAN"

  • FukkFolks2018

    Gloria and Matt were supposedly in the same 8th grade class Sandra. She is not 48. She the same age as Matt

  • BingBangBoom

    Gloria looks good for 48!
    I think it's time for the kids to stay with the father.. Infidelity issues with her, cars flipping over with her new boo. Constant arguing in front of the boys. Just doesn't seem healthy at this point for the boys to be placed under her supervision right now.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm not mad at him. Gone are the days of presuming the children are better with the mother, simply because she is the mother. Gloria has been on one and in this particular instance, I think the man actually wants and loves the child(ren). I'm all for it. She needs to grow the hell up and get over him. If she is happily engaged and Matt is taking care of his children (emotionally, physically and financially), there is no reason for her to be acting a whole azz. Unless she still loves him...

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Matt always reminded me of a black Bart Simpson....lol

  • iWasteTime

    I knew this was coming and I'm not mad about it either.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    She loves the income from that man and well is running dry.... Trash ... . It's been about money this whole.. . She doesnt care about the safety of those children. . she uses them as tool to exact revenge ... she needs to be stripped of custody .... and I hope she will.. . chickens Coming home to roost with these fraud women trying to snag folks for money... Her whole motive

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    chile she don't give a damn about those kids Chile.. . And it's obvious those kids are paWns for here leverage to control his azz... She should be stripped

  • FukkFolks2018

    But if this wouldnt have happened would she be? Unfit? No. He would still be out living his happily ass life.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. She is only like 33/34. I don't know why Sandra said she was 48.

  • Bashi22

    Matt need to raise his boys not Gloria with her and Derek Fisher.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I agree. But he wasnt stuttin them kids til LAST WEEK far as stripping her of rights and all that jazz. If this wouldnt have happened then he would still be OKAY with not having full custody. IJS

  • Bashi22

    Exactly it’s all about money for her. Sister is the same but Gilbert dismantle her whole life on social media and court house. Matt is a investor now so she wants more money her alimony running dry for real. These ladies don’t understand to have peace with their child father. I know if she’s in any problem he would help her first. These are the behaviour that are destroying our community broken women with kids fighting their father who are great.

  • datjerk

    I sincerely hope he wins custody

  • datjerk

    Nah, it's just enough. She barely let's him see the kids.

  • Bashi22

    Well if she could used her car as a weapon to block him with his children. What kid of psychology disorder did she displayed in front of her boys. Gloria need a humble pie. First bring his ex coach and team player in his house around his kids, second driving while drunk ? flipping over a car and third using her car to block their dad with her kids. While in school property with other parents and children.
    She’s is the common denominator she needs. No pittty for these ladies she’s in a position to act right. His alimony or child support is not late.

  • FukkFolks2018

    And one more time...he was more than okay with that til this. I dont like her. I think she is mean and vindictive. But just like single moms need to take accountability and responsiblity then the dads do too.

  • FukkFolks2018

    He left them there after that drunk driving incident. Nobody really knows WHO was driving. Her or Fish. He was a-ok with it and radio silent

  • ShWa

    I knew that was coming next she acts like she's not over the relationship....

  • the guest

    These two were definitely secretly sleeping together again and Gloria fell right into Matt’s plan for payback. Matt used his alpha male passion to completely play her.

    Gloria Govan just learned that you can’t go back to a man that you hurt and humiliated. Because Matt has been WAITING for the opportunity to get her sprung just to pull back to make her emotionally flip and set her up all just to get her back.

    He got Gloria open again. Got another woman pregnant. Got Gloria to go crazy. Got her arrested. Gertting a restraining order. Going for full custody. He used D-control to lure and mess up her world.

    You know Matt was sweet talking. Her ego let her be deceived that he really would get back with her. She had convinced the world she didn’t care about Matt, and he couldn’t wait for the chance to prove she was fronting.

    He knows daggone well Gloria is not a danger. He knows exactly why she’s acting out because he instigated it. And this is all payback for Derek Fisher.

  • Bashi22

    Maybe Matt as a heart ?? because he didn’t want to add more stress on the drunkards. Derek took the blame it was Matt paid SUV ?. I’m rooting for Matt Gloria need soul cleaning. Her trigger he gets another woman pregnant ?

  • LeGard JoJo

    I thought she was pregnant with Derek Fisher's seed.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I think almost all of this is the absolute truth.

  • Phillybruh

    Or just go with me on this, thought her shat don't stink and she was the only one allowed to move on in this situation and stick it too someone . At some point he gave Zero F8cks and that ticked her off.

  • free

    i don't think he wanted her that much in the first place. he barely married her. they had that friend love but not that passion love.

  • iWasteTime

    Sis!
    Didn't she marry Fisher!!?
    I'm so confused.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I think that totally pissed her the hell AWF. That came out and then the next week this. Doesnt warrant her to be stripped of all her rights though. We sit up here and holler about Usher done stole some kids from Tameka and Luda done stole a kid from Tamika and so on, but most are up here like GO MATT. Naw. Sitcho ass down Matt. You were good with the parenting situation. She wasnt letting you see them and you could have been had them if she was so very bad.

  • FukkFolks2018
  • the guest

    He wanted her, he really wanted her. But Gloria did Matt like how Kim did when Reggie was chasing her. She mocked his loving and wanting her in public knowing full well that’s who she really loved. Then she lost him for good.

  • iWasteTime

    Ahhh. Ok
    So maybe theee guest is on to something.
    She was queen of the shat and for her to fluck up like this .... Could be the D !

  • the guest

    Nope. She’s engaged to Derek but her heart and passion are still with Matt.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Probably IS the D. Ex's hunch all the time tho.

  • the guest

    I know that killed Gloria when he said congrats. He probably started sleeping with her right then just because he could.

    Sometimes congrats, best wishes, good luck, wish you well, happy for you, and all the best, really mean fk-you.

  • the guest

    We are saying the same thing, only I’m being polite.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    I think shes upset that hes moved on and having another baby...thats why shes flipping out. All this nonsense out of spite...

  • FukkFolks2018

    I think its BEEN going on with those two. As in it never stopped. That whole WashPo article link I posted is a hot mess.

  • the guest

    Even if she was/is doesn’t mean she wasn’t with Matt. If she is pregnant by Derek and was messing with Matt, then that really explains why she flipped.

  • Phillybruh

    I don't think we were, I don't think he was paying her any mind. you have them sleeping together.

  • the guest

    Agreed. He’s not going for custody for the kids. He’s doing it because he wants to hurt her. He sold her dream to let her down and break her spirit now he wants to ruin her. She must’ve had him hurting real bad when she cheated with Derek. Didn’t he drive like 15 hours and broke into Derek’s house? That’s hurting.

  • the guest

    She was low key hot for Matt when he beat Derek. Matt has owned her since. But he was mad at her and wanted to pay her back. How could she start a new life with his team mate and expect full forgiveness. But I think the sx is insanity with Matt and Gloria and that was her weakness.

  • Trace da Ace

    Oh lord..if these two don't stop trolling each other..damn....they are divorced...both of them have moved on with other folks....damn.....it's like they love to drive each other insane...and doing it all in front of these kids...smdh.....aint no way in hell is an "ex" gonna have me acting crazy and catching charges and shit...no maam... I'm good....

  • the guest

    I didn’t say he was paying her mind. I said he was sleeping with her to turn her out for payback. That’s not making love. That’s game and payback.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Take it from the women on here when we say Matt was hitting that. No reason on why else she would carry the hell on like this on repeat. My ex husband show up to the school Im going to be like oh MY BAD...I thought it was my weekend. Boys yall daddy here. In fact...let me HELP yall to the car. *Turns my car off...grabs all their shit* Then drive off so damn fast. Oh a holiday weekend TOO? Have these kids.

    Lol I know that's right.

  • Coy little wink

    They gotta be closer to or same age to be childhood sweethearts...

    She better get it together before Derek dips...

  • Phillybruh

    He was paying her no mind and yall get in yall feelings the most when he ain't paying yall no mind.

  • Ni Ni

    He looks at least 10 years older. She's going to lose her check, i meant kids if she keeps on.

  • Victorious82

    Well played Matt. Gloria is gonna get on Laura’s level of petty. I wonder if they learned this behavior growing up. If just one of em was a fool I would say it was a fluke but the both of those Govan’s are crazy. Must’ve had a crazy mama or daddy.

  • Coy little wink

    So why did they divorce? I'm lost ?

  • FukkFolks2018

    It was HIS house. The boys called him like "daddy Mr. Derek over here kissing on mama. We TRIED to tell him you stayed here last night but he aint gone YET". Lmao

    And Matt drove there (I dont recall how far. Not 15 hours tho. Like 2-3) and dragged his ass. Which again indeed makes it look like they never stopped sleeping together.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Right!

  • hi-liter

    I bet a dime to a dollar Derek Fisher is not going to marry Gloria. Bih got a whole heap of baggage.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    I thought she was living her best life with Derek Fisher. ? I heard Matt Barnes has moved on too. I hear his new love interest is also preggers. I wonder if their little skirmish has something to do with that. Even though Laura is a hot mess express I always liked her better than Gloria. Gloria always seemed fake, like she was putting on a act. I think this version of Gloria is who she really is..

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Didn't Laura say Gloria slept with her bd?

  • Ihatemoney

    Not because of this but I do see how boys being raised by their father as they get older to be in the best interest of the child. The children do need to see their mother. I know for myself I can’t raise a man.

  • SpillyNillie

    Say it sis, cuz I'm straight burning rubber!!

    If Derek hasn't married her by now.HE WON'T.

    they both are horrible

  • imright

    she thought she’d b happy(er) first.

    This is so selfish on both of their behalf’s, the boys need the guidance and direction of both parents.

    Eh. I hope he wins custody.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    They gone kill themselves!

  • Renee26

    Messy mess... Poor kids

  • Renee26

    Yup

  • Shawty

    And the kids are right in the middle of all this chit!

  • Applebootay

    We have no idea why she decided to go there on a random day to pick them up when it was his turn.... I see this mess with my brother's baby momma. They agree to switch days for whatever reason and then one of them changes their mind and then its a petty war of the roses....if she was a legit threat and he legitimately felt she shouldn't have custody of her own children.....then he would have done this long ago. This is pure retaliation and we know it. Someone is telling him to use this one incident to ask for custody so ultimately.....he can stop paying her child support. Point Blank Period.

  • Applebootay

    That's why he is using this incident to file for full custody...to stop that check. I hope the judge sees through his BS (and I like Matt A whole lot) but he doing too much. She was arrested and charged ...that should be enough....SMDH....

  • JennyJazzhands

    Getting a restraining order doesn't take the children away from their mother it would just protect matt from having to deal with her.
    They'll just get a 3rd party, probably a grandparent, to do pickups and drop offs since picking them up at school obviously doesn't work.

  • TMW

    “....she is preparing to fight tool and nail for her children...”
    ——————————
    For her child support you mean. Hate when parents use children as pawns in their pettiness. Both of them are wrong for this mess.

  • Applebootay

    Same difference.

  • Applebootay

    No he had to bait her in to piss her off. Matt can be an azzhole...

  • Applebootay

    YES!!! It's definitely MORE to this story.

  • Applebootay

    Sweetie, that doesn't make sense though...if your theory is right, this shat would've been happened...He baited her with something...attention, text, sex, etc....it was something...we only get mad like that in the very beginning...they've been moved on...she not just gone act out outta no where @Phillybruh:disqus ...come on Bruh!

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Matt used to routinely beat the brakes off of her

  • Applebootay

    He also had or has an anger problem...but again...I like him...he was real when he was on the show...you can tell he wasn't putting on no fronts...I like Men and People in general who are just real and honest even if they are a hot azz mess.

  • Applebootay

    I would like to give Matt a ride...my Scorpio dack detector tells me...he can put it down...LOL

  • J2PC

    A restraining order is not going to stop the boys from having a relationship with their mother. It is in place to protect him & those kids from her foolish antics or reckless behavior. This might give him leverage where the order for primary custodial parent vs. the visiting parent could be reversed.

    In reality, both parents are engaged & about to marry someone else which means those boys are already being shared or splitting their time between parents because they are living in separate households. -the rest is all about personal protection.

  • J2PC

    Yep. Very similar to the woman who is the mother CBrown's child. smh

  • J2PC

    Ebola?

  • Quitedeliteful

    The petty antics are just too much. Gloria should not put her children in the middle of adult drama. I hope the kids can survive this mess and grow up to be well adjusted adults because this is pure fukkery.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Whuuut???

  • Fire & Ice

    Say what childddddddd ?

  • Stationarity

    I love “petty war of the roses” and will be using it soon.

    He might actually want custody of his kids. Some guys actually want custody and some don’t want to pay. But the smart ones realize that the kids are gonna cost more if they live with them but atleast they have control. Or Matt could want control. Does your brother ever want full custody?

  • Judge Mental Will

    She slept with her sister husband. Now in a relationship with her Ex husband friend! Smh

  • Applebootay

    He did, but he lost. Just like Matt and GLoria...not one of the parents are better off more than the other .......soooooo....they have joint custody ...

  • Buchanan

    i don't see how matt is in the wrong here. he was legally allowed to take those kids for the labor day weekend, and gloria was well aware of that fact she is 100% in the wrong.

  • Anonymouse

    100K is a large bond. I wonder why they set it so high. Whatever the reason, he’s got a pretty good example of the point that he’s trying to make. That’s what he’s going to use against her in court and he just might get full custody - even if it’s just temporarily.

  • TMW

    To me, all of the nonsense in front of the boys was unnecessary. Pulling them out of her car, and the car chase. He may have been legally right, but putting those kids through all of that was DEAD WRONG. This happened at their school, probably in front of some of their classmates - not cool.

  • Karen Brady

    I can't even read this one because this couple makes me tired. Like I physically felt a twinge of fatigue when I saw this headline, lol. Poor kids and that's all I have to contribute.

  • Buchanan

    she had no business showing up to that school, she knew it was his weekend she started all of that mess she the one who blocked his car with her car matt did the right thing and called the police.

  • TMW

    We don’t know what transpired before she showed up to the school. Whatever the mess was, it doesn’t matter. They both feel justified for their actions and I guess a judge will decide who’s right. But they both dragged their kids into it - neither of them were thinking about the kids.

  • JENNYJONES1

    THEY BOTH SEEM TO BE VIOLENT!!!! FIRST HIM DRIVING 2 HRS TO GLORIA'S HOUSE TO BEAT UP DERRICK FISHER AFTER ONE OF HIS SONS CALLED HIM AND TOLD HIM DERRICK WAS THERE AND NOW DATING GLORIA. AND NOW GLORIA DOING THIS BS WHICH COULD LOSE HER CUSTODY ESP IF IT WAS MATT'S WKEND AND SHE PICKED THE KIDS UP ILLEGALLY. GLORIA DON'T END UP LIKE D. WADE'S EX AND KEEP IGNORING THE CUSTODY/VISITATION ORDER B/C WE ALL SEE THE JUDGE GAVE D. WADE CUSTODY. NEITHER SOUNDS LIKE THEY HAVE THE KIDS BEST INTEREST AS A FIRST PRIORITY. THIS HAS BEEN MESSY AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE MESSY...........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    I TOTALLY AGREE. SHE WAS DEAD WRONG BUT HE SHOULD'VE JUST LET HER GO HOME W/THE BOYS AND CALLED THE COPS ON HER TO GET THEM. AT SCHOOL WASN'T COOL.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    WHATEVER HIS MOTIVES THE CAR ISH SHE DID WAS DANGEROUS AND GOT HER ASS ARRESTED SO SHE'S MAKING HIS CASE FOR HIM AND IF IT WAS TRULY HIS COURT APPOINTED WKEND THEN THAT'S STACKING HIS CASE EVEN MORE AND STRAIGHT IDIOT BEHAVIOR ON HER PART.........JENNY JONES!!!

    I'm so sick of hearing about these two immature folks.

  • Liah

    They both need to grow up!

  • gellie

    That is a very high bond, which should tell people something. Matt played this brilliantly. He's a hot head. He has a temper. But he showed restraint, had all his receipts, and let Gloria hang herself. If she could've gotten him to react aggressively towards her even once during that encounter, the whole thing would've gone her way.

  • gellie

    It can't be a coincidence that less than a week after it's announced that Matt has a new baby on the way, THIS happens.

  • bran

    If it was his weekend then it was his weekend...and if it wasn't it wasn't. I don't understand this foolishness.

  • Jussjess25

    Matt is dragging it.. gloria cant stand gim and does not want to be around his ass. He did not need a restraining order against her ?? please

  • Jussjess25

    Wait what? She slept with her sisters husband.. no she didnt ! Do You any receipts??

  • the guest

    A tell tale sign she was still in love with Matt was that when stalked her and broke into Derek's house and beat him in front of the kids, Gloria didn't press charges, didn't lock him up, didn't get a restraining order. That was her time to put the law in her favor. But she let him off. Notice how he's not letting her off. It's sad to see how this woman's emotions warped her whole thought process and defeated her position.

  • rodt

    naw she started it now he ending it. Petty gets petty. Messing with his visitation. She should lose rights
