‘Basketball Wives’ Star Gloria Govan Victorious in Court After Ex Matt Barnes Comes Up Short to Strip Her of Custody

Gloria Govan‘s ex, former NBA star Matt Barnes, tried to get full custody of the couple’s twins on Monday but a judge shot down his request.

Attorneys for Barnes were in court today and claimed that Govan has violated a restraining order that is supposed to keep her 100 yeards away from Matt or the kids, except when she has monitored visitations. Our sources say one of the violations — Barnes claims there were four — occurred last week when Gloria showed up for the kids’ football game.

To support his claim, Barnes claims to have photos of Govan with the kids at the football game in violation of the order. He also claims that Govan texted and called the kids on Sunday about the upcoming hearing, also in violation of the order.

Barnes was asking a judge to rule that Govan not be allowed to see the children until a hearing about restraining order takes place.

Attorneys for both sides were in court this afternoon to battle it out and a judge sided with Govan and her attorney Mark Gross, citing a lack of evidence, and keeping things status quo for now.

The two sides will be in court again next month.
