According to recent reports, 'Basketball Wives' star Gloria Govan was arrested on charges of child endangerment after a dangerous fight with her ex-husband, which the police claimed as putting their kids at risk. Sources close to TMZ say that Gloria's kids were in school and about to get off on Friday, and it was Gloria's ex-husband Matt Barnes who was supposed to pick up the kids from school. As per the publication, the couple's child custody agreement required Matt to take care of the kids for the long, Labor Day weekend.
At about 2:55 p.m. on Friday, the publication says that Gloria arrived to get the twin boys. Right after she settled down the boys in her car, Matt arrived at the school to pick up the kids and told Gloria that it was his turn to keep the children for the long weekend. Sources told the publication that Matt asked his kids to get out of his ex-wife's car and instead, get into his. When the kids followed their father's directions and proceeded towards his car, Gloria apparently flew into a rage and tried to follow Matt's car, screaming and cussing. A source even went on to say that Gloria blocked Matt's car with the kids inside, and that's when someone called the 911.
The police arrested Gloria for child endangerment and also violating a court order. After they took her to jail, they let Matt take the kids away, but only after he had shown them the paperwork he had as proof of his custody over the weekend.
As has been reported before, Matt and Gloria were involved in an extremely bitter divorce, and the reason was Gloria's current fiance, Derek Fisher. Both Matt and Derek had extremely bad blood between them even though they used to be teammates for the Lakers because Matt believed that Derek had hooked up with his then-wife Gloria while the two were still married.
However, it now looks like the feud between the two athletes may be finally over, for Matt has given Derek his blessings and even congratulated him on the engagement.
