This has been one of the nasty stories, I’ve been following for some time now.
Gloria Govan is n ow claiming that Ex Matt Barnes is trying to serve her a $300K lawsuit.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Govan claims she was never properly served in the lawsuit and says she didn’t even know Barnes sued her until after a judge ruled by default in his favor. The former NBA star accused Govan, her brother Lonnie, and their parents of fraud and claims they embezzled $300k from him.
In her new filing, Govan is demanding the default order be vacated, saying she was never served with the legal docs. The process server claims he served her on June 10, 2018 but Govan has an entirely different account of their interaction.
She recalls the incident that went down on that date at a Starbucks in Encino, where she was meeting Barnes to exchange custody of their twin boys. Govan says she and Barnes had previously agreed to not bring their various disputes to the custody exchanges, saying it was to be a neutral site and that the twins should not be involved.
On the date in question, Gloria Govan says she remembers having her head down to look at her phone when a man touched her shoulder and said, “I know who you are.”
She told the man to “get the f**k out of my face. I don’t know you.”
She continues to say how people come up to her all the time because she is a known celebrity from the TV show Basketball Wives. Govan feels as if she was not properly served.
