If you’ve been keeping up with the soap opera that is the Matt Barnes/Gloria Govan/Derek Fisher situation, we’ve got an update for you. Matt Barnes has just been awarded full custody of his twin sons with his ex-wife, Govan.

The latest dispute began when Barnes asked for a restraining order after an altercation with Govan at a school pick-up. He alleged that she drove her car at him at a high rate of speed and blocked him in the school’s parking lot when he came to pick up the children.

As reported by, the judge granted the restraining order for 18 months and gave Barnes full physical and legal custody of the ten-year-old twins.

Govan will be allowed visitation with her children every other weekend from Friday through Monday and can have dinner with her sons every Wednesday night. Govan must also complete anger management and parenting classes.

Barnes and Govan have had numerous disputes over their children, especially since Govan is now living with Barnes’ ex-Laker teammate Derek Fisher. Barnes is about to welcome a child with model Beverly Johnson’s daughter, Anansa Sims.

    • She is half mexican and half black yet you only call out the black side. What black woman hurt you? You do know all black women, black men, white men, white women…etc aren’t the same & shouldn’t be stereotyped.

  1. It’s really sad we get caught up in our feeling trying to hurt each other and never once think about the affect it have on the children. Long as you have children with someone you are connected for life why not be suitable, IT’S NOT ABOUT U!

    That’s what she gets. Most men want women to do the mothering, just not dominate and try to tell them how and when to be a Father. Some women think they own the kids. This is unfortunate, but I’m happy if it means stability for the boys. I bet Matt won’t interfere with her visitation unless he senses that she is drunk. Now she doesn’t have to worry about not having enough child support.
