Gloria Govan and Matt Barnes have FINALLY settled their long-running child custody and support issues and the “Basketball Wives” star has been granted the 50/50 custody of her kids she has long sought.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Govan and Barnes will share legal and physical custody of their twin sons, Isaiah and Carter. The boys will alternate weeks with each parent and the custody schedule lays out where the boys will spend various holidays.
The boys will stay at their current private school (Matt will foot the bill for the that) for the 2019/20 school year and then go to public school the year after. Once they finish middle school, the kids will go to Sierra Canyon High School (where LeBron James’ sons go) and Barnes and Govan will split the bill for that 50/50.
The agreement notes that custody exchanges and attendance at any school events/sporting events will not constitute a violation of the restraining order Barnes has against Govan.
The two sides are also barred from disparaging and/or making derogatory remarks about the other in front of the kids.
As far as child support goes, Barnes will pay $9,983 per month to Govan, which represents a slight bump from the $7,500 he was paying before (but a lot less than the $20,000 per month he was paying previously).
Barnes was also ordered to pay $15,000 towards Govan’s legal expenses.
Govan and Barnes started dating in 2006 and tied the knot in 2013. They split after two years of marriage.
