Matt Barnes reportedly finalizes divorce with Gloria Govan
Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan have finalized their divorce, and it has reportedly cost Barnes quite a bit of money.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Barnes and Govan had an amicable separation in 2014 after they were married for nearly two years. With the split now finalized, Barnes has agreed to pay Govan $10,000 per month for each of the couple’s twin boys until the kids turn 18. The Sacramento Kings forward reportedly paid $5,000 per child per month in 2016 and an additional $20,000 per month in spousal support.
Starting in 2017, Barnes will continue to pay child support but will not be responsible for spousal support. For those counting at home, he paid Govan $240,000 in spousal support and another $120,000 in child support in 2016.
As you have likely heard, the relationship between Barnes and Govan really soured back in 2015 when Govan and Barnes’ former teammate Derek Fisher got into a physical confrontation. Fisher and Govan had been dating after Govan separated from Barnes, and Barnes still hears nasty chants from fans about it to this day.
