According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the “Basketball Wives” star claims Barnes owes her $42,250 in back child support.
She claims her former NBA star ex owes her $20,000 that was due last November and $7,500 that he did not pay last December. She claims she is owed an additional $14,750 because Barnes’ support payments from January through May of 2019 have been about half of the $7,500 per month he’s supposed to be paying.
Govan wants the money she is owed, plus another $25 in costs and about $2,174 in interest.
Govan’s attorney says she reached out to Barnes lawyer back in April to regarding the past due support payments but claims the lawyer “has not provided me with any explanation regarding the unpaid child support nor has she provided any assurances that the payments are forthcoming.
Barnes used to pay Garnes $20,000 per month in child support but he went to court last year in an effort to get that payment reduced.
He claimed that since he has gained increased custody of the former couple’s twins, he believed his support payments should be lowered.
Barnes had requested to have the child support payments cut down to $7,500 per month and the judge agreed with that amount and ordered the payments to be reduced.
Govan recently filed documents seeking more custodial time with the twins.
