Former NBA Player Matt Barnes Wins Sole Physical and Legal Custody of His 10-Year-Old Twin Boys, Gets Restraining Order After His ‘Basketball Wives’ Star Ex-Wife Gloria Govan was Arrested for Flying Into a Rage at the Twins’ School

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.
