Grizzlies’ Matt Barnes Writes Ex Gloria Govan Note For Mother’s Day

In an open letter posted to his Instagram account, Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes wrote out a heartfelt message to his ex-wife and former Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan, wishing her a happy Mother’s Day.

Grizzlies Forward Matt Barnes Writes Ex Note For Mother’s Day

“Wanted to wish @glogovan a happy Mother’s Day! Although we haven’t always been able to see eye to eye we’ve been able to remember what’s most important, & that’s raising two beautiful happy intelligent little boys,” Barnes said in the post. He then continued, “Thank you for giving me the two greatest gifts a man could ever ask for!! Hope you guys have a great day. Love you guys! Happy Mother’s Day to all the other mothers out there, without you there is no us!”

Barnes, 36, has two twin boys — Isaiah and Carter with Govan, who is now allegedly dating Barnes’ former teammate and former New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher. Fisher posted his own Instagram photo of Gloria and her sons with the caption, “Hope you enjoyed a nice relaxing day today! You deserve it! Happy Mother’s Day @glogovan.”

When some haters began criticizing Barnes for his post, he quickly shut them down. “The point is to have a great day. It is what it is. I’m over it, did what I had to do, and kept it moving,” Barnes wrote.

Several others also called Fisher out for putting up this picture of Govan and her two kids when he has four kids of his own with his ex-wife Candace.

In March, Govan stated that she is not the reason Fisher got fired by the Knicks. Barnes and Fisher were involved in an altercation during the preseason in October when the Grizzlies forward found out the former Knicks coach was spending time with his estranged wife in Los Angeles. The incident resulted in a two-game suspension for Barnes.
