Matt Barnes’ Fiancé Disputes Charges

by September 10, 2010

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.'”
