Retired NBA player Matt Barnes won custody of his 10-year-old twins on Thursday, concluding a bitter battle with his ex-wife Gloria Govan.
In addition to physical and legal custody, the 37-year-old also secured a 18-month restraining order against Govan that will be in effect until May 2020.
While the restraining order is for Barnes, it is not extended to his children as it is believed that Govan doesn’t pose a threat to them.
Govan, 33, will get to see her children on regular visits, TMZ reports. She’ll get to see Carter and Isaiah every other weekend from Friday until Monday morning.
