'Basketball Wives' Star

Splits with L.A. Lakers Player

10/24/2011 1:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1024_matt_barnes_gloria_bn
The NBA offseason from hell just got worse for Los Angeles Lakers player Matt Barnes ... who just announced that he's officially broken up with his "Basketball Wives" baby mama Gloria Govan.

Barnes -- who has 2 children with Govan -- just released a statement saying, "We have reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways at this time."

He adds, "We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best."

Barnes and Govan have had some issues in the past -- including the time Matt was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence back in 2010 ... but prosecutors didn't press charges due to a lack of evidence.

Well well well. Gloria is fiercely in support of how wonderful their relationship is...was. Even made some harsh comments about the relationships of her previous cast mates. Babies b4 rings.

Good luck to both of them!

Well good luck to the both of them, the media attention certainly didn't help their situation. Phew, but it's cheaper to keep her I've been told.

These women get delusions of granduer b/c they're on a show with "wives" in the title and start thiking they are wives. No, honey, you're not! He'll marry when a woman he thinks worthy of being his wife comes along. You're just a baby mama.

Good for her. I'm no fan of Gloria, but the battered woman look that was settling into her eyes made me worry about her. The money is just not worth getting beat up.

A black basketball player arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. Hitting a woman, I do not believe that. That is impossible--who keeps spreading these lies.
