'Basketball Wives' Star

Splits with L.A. Lakers Player

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

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.

She spoke on the show often and flippantly that she had other options if they were to break up. She's always had her doubts, so it's not surprising.

Why do the b*tches on these garbage shows call themselves wives? Most are divorced or never had anyone care enough about them to marry them in the first place. Trashy garbage rotting tv.

Gloria and her disgusting sister are "jump-offs". Maybe next time she'll solidify her situation before criticizing other for their's. She might as well have a donkey mask on b/c she looks like an ass.
