In the wake of postponed wedding plans, a dropped domestic-violence charge and reality television show scrutiny, Lakers forward Matt Barnes announced in an emailed statement Monday that he and his fiancée, reality television star Gloria Govan, have mutually parted ways. "I’d like to address the rumors surrounding mine and Gloria’s relationship," Barnes' statement read. "We have reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways at this time. We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best." Because Barnes and Govan never married, it remains unclear to what degree they'd share custody of their 3-year-old twins Carter Kelly and Isiah Michael, and whether they'd divide certain assets, including their Palos Verdes home. It also remains unclear if they'd continue working together with Athletes vs. Cancer, a foundation Barnes founded in 2008 that Govan has said raised $225,000 for local cancer-screening programs. Barnes and Govan could not be reached for further comment. The two appeared amicable during red-carpet appearances and when I spent a few hours at their house filming Barnes getting a mohawk prior to the 2011 NBA playoffs. But there have been plenty of publicized incidents questioning the strength of their relationship. Barnes and Govan held off definitive wedding plans. Barnes was arrested last summer on suspicion of domestic violence in Sacramento, a charge the two publicly disputed and one the city's district attorney's office ultimately dropped. Govan's role with VH1's "Basketball Wives" created further attention and Internet reports about the nature of their relationship. Perhaps the most telling sign regarding Barnes' feelings about Govan came last week during a Twitter exchange with a fan. That person suggested Barnes should marry her or else someone else will. Responded Barnes: "He can have her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Meanwhile, Govan retweeted the following message on Saturday: "If someone is dumb enough to walk away, be smart enough to let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you."

Dumbasses, all around. I hope they can do what's right for their kids.
They not as perfect as she claimed they were in BBW Miami.
Well she claimed she wouldn't really care if things didn't work out with them since she can do good on her own. At least that is how she came off. So whatever
