Matt Barnes Just Got Really Petty With Gloria Govan Following Her Engagement To Former NBA Teammate Derek Fisher — Receipts Inside

Some feuds are just so exhausting. And not even a little bit fun to behold from the sidelines. 

Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan have been fighting for what feels like eons. 

Earlier this month, she filed a lawsuit against him for ruining her reputation over his claims that she stole money from him and forged his signature for homes and businesses for her family.

In turn, Matt countersued, accusing Gloria her brother Lonnie, her mom and her dad of committing fraud.

In court documents obtained by The Blast, he insists Gloria came up with a plan with her family to embezzle more than $300,000 of his money, in order to buy a home in Oakland, California. He says she used her brother as a “straw man” to purchase the home by forging his signature as the co-buyer. 


Yup. He believes the bunch “masqueraded as Matt Barnes in order to advance their scheme of purchasing the property.”


Once that was done, Matt thinks the title was transferred to Gloria and a “shell company” was created to cover her tracks…and his name was removed. He says more than $300,000 was taken and transferred to a private account set up by ex. 

So, he is suing for unspecified damages and for a court to confirm that he is indeed the owner of the home.

Those are some very strategic-sounding shenanigans, right?



A few months ago, he attempted to wish Gloria well on her birthday, but that soon took a swift turn.

"Wanna wish the mother of my children a very Happy Birthday! Hope this day is everything you hoped for and more."

"Although things have been rocky to say the least the last 4yrs I hope that for the sake of our two beautiful baby boys we can come together & co parent them to the best of our abilities! No more games or bulls—. They need both of our love & support equally! We lead different lives now but we still on the same team. Anyways cheers to your day!! Peace Love & Happiness."

Gloria soon responded, writing, "@matt_barnes9 Thank you, I think? And yes, one can only continue to pray that you take your own advice and learn to peacefully co-parent! But until then, I'll see you in court next week because you love a frivolous lawsuit. But hey, let's keep co-parenting."


The public diss didn't go down well with Barnes and he responded to her comment with some accusations.

Matt wrote, "Well...Stealing money, my social security number, and forging my signature to buy your parents' night club and house is pretty serious. But hey, I tried! See you in court! Oh and happy birthday!"



Matt and Gloria began dating in 2006 and wed in 2012. The marriage didn't last very long, as they announced their separation in October 2014.


Oh and she recently got engaged to his ex-teammate Derek Fisher, so we are sure that will add fuel to the fire between these two, somehow.


Do you think these two will ever make peace?
