Matt Barnes Gets a Restraining Order Against Gloria Govan

Gloria Govan made things exponentially more difficult for herself when she got herself arrested following an altercation with Matt Barnes at their kids’ school.

Matt got himself a temporary restraining order against her. She now must stay at least 100 yards away from him AND the kids. She can see them once a week for 4 hours, but a professional monitor has to be present — that she has to pay for.

The only time she can be near Matt is when she’s getting the kids.

Gloria also can’t take the kids outside of Los Angeles county without express written permission from Matt.

Matt’s attorney, Samantha Spector, tells TMZ Sports, “Today wasn’t about Matt or Gloria. It was about the children and their safety. This was a good day for those kids, and that’s all that matters.”

The next hearing is scheduled for the end of Sept. — where Gloria can argue to change the arrangement. 

As we previously reported, cops arrested Govan on August 31 after she allegedly blocked Matt from picking up their 9-year-old twin boys on Matt’s scheduled custodial day.

Matt claims Govan used her car as a weapon against him — and claims he feared for his life (and the lives of his kids) and Gloria punched the gas in her Escalade and “[barreled] toward me.”

“I am ever thankful that no child or parent was hit by Gloria and her 17-foot-long Escalade as she endangered every child’s and adult’s safety when she plowed through the parking lot.”

In court docs, Matt claims Gloria put their children and other kids at the school in physical danger — and Matt claims the twins have been traumatized by Gloria’s actions and subsequent arrest.
