Matt Barnes & Gloria Govan Are Over: Couple Announce Split!

So Matt Barnes and  Gloria Govan are over. Well, that’s according to an official statement released by the NBA player just hours ago.

He states,

“I’d like to address the rumors surrounding mine and Gloria’s relationship. 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.”

The  ‘Basketball Wives LA’ reality TV star followed up with a twitter message of her own stating,

I’m sure you guys are hearing a ton of buzz about Matt and Me breaking up, sorry to say… its true!!! But the most important thing is focusing on my kids and continuing to have a good relationship with their father, thanks for your support!!!

Perhaps, there were signs of trouble in the relationship, the couple once referred to as “perfect”, when their nuptials were called off  indefinitely last year. A police report even suggested the couple were involved in a heated domestic dispute which resulted in Matt’s arrest. No charges were filed.

Grown Man Afraid Of Baby Pitbull (Video)

Animal Planet’s “My Extreme Animal Phobia” featured a 40-year old man who is terrified of pitt bulls, even the baby ones.

The irony here, he could give a wrestle mania athlete a run for there money. His big statue doesn’t help him get over his fear brought on by a childhood traumatic experience. He even bursts into tears when a small pitbull comes running in the park.

I know this isn’t meant to be funny but I found it comical nonetheless. Watch clip below.
