Matt Barnes has revealed that his split from Gloria Govan isn't as recent as most think. Matt, who plays for the Los Angeles Lakers, announced via Twitter that he and Gloria called it a wrap on the relationship before summer. But he said that they kept up appearances to make her look good on "Basketball Wives: LA." "In May, Gloria and I decided to separate and in the best interest of her career, I foolishly agreed to portray that we were still together for the upcoming season [of] her show on VH1," he tweeted last week. "As recently as August we decided to revisit a joint statement of our separation, but Gloria asked to delay making our separation public for the interest of her show." S2S Magazine

Now, it appears that Matt is a bit resentful of having to play along for the cameras, all while defending his supposedly platonic relationship with Eva Longoria. And the NBA player also shut down speculation that it was his infidelities that killed his romance with Gloria. "It is ironic now how Gloria is trying to manipulate the professional relationship between Eva Longoria and myself as the sole reason for our separation, when she knows we split up in May," Matt wrote. "The reason I broke my silence and released the separation statement a month ago, was due to her on going affair with a former friend of mine." S2S Magazine
