Back in November 2018, Matt Barnes scored a huge victory in the courts when he was awarded sole, physical, and legal custody of his twins.
He would then take that victory and double down by asking the courts to reduce his $20,000 per month child support payments to Gloria Govan to $7,500, which would be $3,750 per kid, and the judge agreed to do it.
The former NBA player will be finding himself in a court once again this year after his ex-wife stated he hasn’t been paying the full amount of his child support and she is headed to court to get what she is owed.
“According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the “Basketball Wives” star claims Barnes owes her $42,250 in back child support.
She claims her former NBA star ex owes her $20,000 that was due last November and $7,500 that he did not pay last December. She claims she is owed an additional $14,750 because Barnes’ support payments from January through May of 2019 have been about half of the $7,500 per month he’s supposed to be paying.
Govan wants the money she is owed, plus another $25 in costs and about $2,174 in interest.
Govan’s attorney says she reached out to Barnes lawyer back in April to regarding the past due support payments but claims the lawyer “has not provided me with any explanation regarding the unpaid child support nor has she provided any assurances that the payments are forthcoming.”
Govan, who is engaged to be married to Barnes’ ex-teammate Derek Fisher, has since filed documents seeking more custodial time with the twins.
