Matt Barnes’ Fiancé Disputes Charges

Through some type of PR exec, Gloria Govan says Matt Barnes has never physically abused her. From the Sac Bee: “Sacramento County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran said deputies responded to an incomplete 911 call from the 8100 block of Sunset Avenue at about 4:15 p.m., where they encountered Barnes and a woman ‘who lived with him and with whom he had a dating relationship.’ After speaking to Barnes and the woman, later identified as his fiancee, Gloria Govan, deputies determined that the two had been in a physical confrontation and Barnes had prevented the woman from talking to 911 operators. Curran said dispatchers heard the sound of a struggle in the background on the brief open line until it was disconnected. Both parties had visible injuries but Barnes was determined to be the primary aggressor, Curran said … Laura M. Wright, a public relations executive, who says she represents both Barnes and his fiancee, released this statement on behalf of Govan: ‘Any accusation of domestic violence are false. My fiancé, Matt Barnes, has never physically abused me or my family.’”

    it’s always fun when both parties deny what the police say happened.

    Police reports are written by police. That pretty much says it all.

    I wonder if Barnes tried to throw a “ball” in her face, and when she didn’t flinch, he went all crazy. Role playing scenarios can be great, most of the time.

    Interesting how she moved from girlfriend to ‘fiance’ so quick – and now Barnes never did anything. The power of a diamond…

    In some states, when it comes to domestic violence, the state can press charges if neither party wants to based on whatever the cops deem evidence of assault. I know a guy that went to jail over a yellowing, old bruise the cops saw. I remember the female laughing about it over drinks with friends, she was just a girlfriend, he wanted her out of his beachside condo, she wasn’t ready to be an ex, so called the cops and LIED. Women lie, men lie but b*tch will try to ruin your life over nothing.

    minor bones to pick: fiancé is the groom-to-be, and fiancée is the bride-to-be

    I guess he is innocent, until proven guilty.

    Noble and Barnes.

    PapaBearATL is an idiot.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Hi

    Just kidding. This whole Barnes story is stupid though, if he really did hit her. Athletes and their lawyers know how to pull moves. *Shakes head* it’s a damn shame.
