Matt Barnes Obtains Restraining Order Against Ex-Wife Gloria Govan

Complex is reporting that former NBA star Matt Barnes has obtained a restraining order against his wife Gloria Govan.

This comes just days after Govan was arrested for allegedly blocking Matt from picking up their twin 9-year-old boys from school on a day where he was scheduled to take them.

Now Govan, who was charged with felony child endangerment for the incident that led to her arrest has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from the children. However, she can see them once a week for four hours of time with a professional monitor present, who she must pay. And she is not allowed to take the children out of Los Angeles during that time unless given written permission from Barnes.

The former couple has been embroiled in a nasty beef, and on August 31, she reportedly used her car as a weapon against Barnes.

In his court docs, Barnes claims he feared for his life (and the lives of his kids) and Gloria punched the gas in her Escalade and “[barreled] toward me.”

“I am ever thankful that no child or parent was hit by Gloria and her 17-foot-long Escalade as she endangered every child’s and adult’s safety when she plowed through the parking lot,” he continued, adding that Gloria put their children and other kids at the school in physical danger, that their twins have been traumatized by Gloria’s actions and subsequent arrest.

We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
