“Basketball Wives LA” cast member Gloria Govan was just dumped by her fiance Matt Barnes. Word on the street is that Matt Barnes dumped Gloria because he was tired of “reckless talk.” Well I’m thinking Gloria is probably better off as dude has problems keeping his hands to himself. In case you missed it, Matt was arrested for domestic violence, but Gloria released a statement saying that he has never abused her or her family. Gloria often bragged about how successful and mature her relationship was in comparison to the other girls on “Basketball Wives.”

The couple was scheduled to get married last August but decided to postpone it. Gloria explained:

Matt and I feel like marriage is something that should not be rushed into. It wasn’t any outside party. We’re committed and dedicated to working on our relationship and we’re still together but again, we felt like this wasn’t something that was in our hearts at the time. Marriage is something that is definitely our goal but again, we’re not rushing into something that we just feel like isn’t right for us at the time so we’re just taking the time to work on our family.


Something about this relationship never seemed right.

“Basketball Wives LA’ airs on VH1 next  Monday, August 29th. I personally can’t wait to see what drama these ladies are going to bring.
