Matt Barnes, ex-wife Gloria Govan get into ugly spat after birthday wish

Matt Barnes

Matt Barnes and his ex-wife Gloria Govan have had some very public disputes in recent years, which is why it was somewhat surprising to see Barnes wish her a happy birthday this week. Unfortunately, the good vibes quickly took an ugly turn.

Govan, who has twin sons with Barnes, celebrated a birthday on Thursday. Barnes tried to put the former couple’s differences aside by complimenting her and saying the two are “still on the same team.”

“Wanna wish the mother of my children a very Happy Birthday! Hope this day is everything you hoped for and more,” Barnes wrote in an Instagram post. “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.”

To say Govan did not appreciate the sentiment would be an understatement. She replied by reminding Barnes that she’ll see him in court next week, which inspired the former NBA forward to instantly change his tune.

If you’re familiar with the backstory, that seems more like it. 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 have been dating basically since Govan separated from Barnes, and Barnes has even heard nasty chants from fans about it during games. That’s probably the last time he’ll wish the mother of his children a happy birthday.

Blake Griffin’s ex in lawsuit: He had ‘toxic’ relationship with Clippers teammates

Blake Griffin is being sued by the mother of his chldren for allegedly abandoning her a week before the former couple was supposed to get married, and the lawsuit the woman filed also contains some juicy information about Griffin’s time with the Clippers.

TMZ reports that Brynn Cameron has filed a palimony lawsuit against Griffin, claiming he is a bad father who has been “cruelly embarrassing his family with his public fawning over Kendall Jenner.” Griffin and Cameron have two children together and were engaged, but Cameron says the star forward called off the wedding at the last second when he became enamored with Jenner.

The lawsuit, which was filed on Valentine’s Day, states that Griffin promised Cameron he would support her and the couple’s two children and convinced her to quit her sports marketing job. The documents include love letters from Griffin thanking Cameron for “all the sacrifices” she has made.

“Cameron was not just the mother of Griffin’s children and their caregiver, she was also a constant support for Griffin — his personal assistant, meal planner, scheduler, stylist, publicist, party planner, nurse, nutritionist, branding expert, therapist, cheerleader, basketball and fitness consultant, and more,” the lawsuit states.

Cameron claims she and her children have been left “homeless and cash-strapped” while Griffin continues to make millions with his NBA salary and endorsement deals. The suit does not state a specific amount of money she is seeking, but it is in the millions.

And there’s some basketball stuff in there, too. Cameron claims in the documents that she advised Griffin on how to be a better leader with the Clippers when he had “mounting tension with Chris Paul” and was not getting along with his teammates. Here’s more:

She continued, “Griffin struggled to be viewed as a leader for the Clippers while Chris Paul was such a vocal presence in the locker room and the media — and was better known for his drive to win and dedication to both team building and family values.”

Brynn says she counseled Griffin to lead in his own way “by setting a standard for hard work.”

She also claims she helped Blake with his communication skills — including how to speak with teammates and coaches when issues would arise.

“The relationship between Griffin and other teammates had become so toxic River had to mediate disputes in private meetings with the players.”

“Griffin did not know how to handle confrontations and would go silent when things did not go his way. To change that dynamic, Cameron would coach Griffin on how to communicate his issues.”

Griffin has been spotted hanging around Jenner a lot over the past several months, but they have never made their relationship official. While they could be just close friends, it’s also possible that Griffin has tried his best to keep his personal life under wraps because of the drama building with his ex.

As we learned after Griffin and Cameron had their first child together, Cameron also has a son with a former NFL quarterback.

Danica Patrick confirms she is dating Aaron Rodgers

Danica Patrick confirmed Monday she is dating Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

“Yes, Aaron and I are dating,” Patrick told the Associated Press, via TMZ.

Patrick said the pair met at the 2012 ESPYs and stayed friendly — and that she’s switching her allegiances from being a fan of the rival Chicago Bears to root for Rodgers’s Packers.

“I am probably going to cheer for the whole team,” Patrick said. “Take out the word ‘probably.’ Now I’m going to cheer for the whole team.”

Rumors have hounded the pair since they were photographed having dinner together over the weekend in Scottsdale, Ariz. This is far from the first high-profile relationship for both, with Rodgers in particular a focus of media reports.

There now appears to be photographic evidence of Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick dating.

TMZ Sports on Sunday shared a photo of what they say is Rodgers and Patrick at dinner together.

The outlet says the two were dining at a Mexican restaurant in Scottsdale, Ariz on Saturday evening.

Reports have said over the past two weeks that the two were dating, and this seems to be proof.

Both athletes are coming off of breakups. The Green Bay Packers quarterback was dating Olivia Munn until breaking up last year. Munn was said to be having a hard time when Rodgers dated other women afterwards.

Patrick broke up with longtime boyfriend Ricky Stenhouse late last year after five years together.

Mother of Jose Reyes’ child says she was attacked by MLB star’s wife

Jose Reyes has an 8-year-old child with a woman who is not his wife, and that has led to some drama in the MLB star’s personal life in recent years. Apparently that drama has not subsided.

Christina Sanchez, the mother of Reyes’ daughter Liyah, told the New York Post that Reyes’ wife, Katherine Sanchez, tried to physically attack her at a Starbucks in Long Island on Wednesday.

“I was walking out of the Starbucks, and she was walking in,” Sanchez said. “I recognized her, and I held the door for her. When she got close, she recognized me, and she lunged to physically attack me. She was screaming and yelling something in Dominican Spanish, I couldn’t understand what she was saying.”

Sanchez was in Long Island for a scheduled child support hearing with Reyes. Sanchez said Ramirez gave her the middle finger and was restrained by a man inside the coffee shop.

“She pressed herself up against the window and gave me the finger. He let go of her, then she walked to the window again and stuck her middle finger at me,” Sanchez claimed. “I don’t want anything to do with her, I don’t have anything against her. This is all just about my child.”

Reyes and Ramirez have been married since 2008. Sanchez is seeking $40,000 per month in child support from Reyes. She filed a lawsuit against the New York Mets shortstop earlier this year and opened up about how he lived a double life for years.

Report: Khloe Kardashian pregnant with Tristan Thompson’s baby

Khloe Kardashian Cavs

Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s baby, according to a report.

TMZ Sports reported on Tuesday that Kardashian is three months pregnant with what would be her first child. If the pregnancy is carried out to full term, the child would be born in the spring, towards the end of the NBA’s regular season.

Thompson began dating Kardashian about a year ago. Last December, a few months into his relationship with Kardashian, Thompson’s ex-girlfriend gave birth to their son. If Kardashian has the baby, that would become Thompson’s second child in about a year and a half.

Thompson, 26, is entering the third year of a five-year, $82 million contract he signed with the Cavs. Though he was dating Kardashian all season, Thompson never seemed distracted on the court, and the Cavs were even said to have been amused by the relationship.

Keyshawn Johnson accused of impregnating another woman while married

Keyshawn Johnson

Keyshawn Johnson is reportedly facing a paternity test from a woman who claims he is the father of her 4-month-old child, and that woman is not the former NFL star’s wife.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, a 35-year-old woman is seeking $4,346 a month in child support after she says she became pregnant with Johnson’s son back in 2016. The woman has asked a judge to order a paternity test for Johnson.

Complicating matters even further, Johnson is still legally married to Jennifer Conrad. Johnson’s estranged wife filed for divorce more than two years ago, and there was some talk of them reconciling at some point last year. However, Conrad told TMZ last summer that the divorce was back on.

Johnson has denied having a 4-month-old son with another woman, with his attorney telling TMZ “the allegations are absolutely false.”

Johnson is no stranger to being at the center of drama and gossip. His name came up in legal filings back in December 2014 by a man who believed the former NFL star was having an affair with his wife. The man said he found some inappropriate text messages that indicated his wife and Keyshawn were trying to arrange hook-ups.
