Matt Barnes

Sorry Gloria ...

This Split Ain't Amicable

EXCLUSIVE

Matt Barnes Split Gloria Govan
The Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan break-up isn't as friendly and happy and cheery as she says it is ... this according to sources close to Matt, who tell us this thing is pretty damn far from amicable.

Our sources tell us ... Matt was the one who called things off with the "Basketball Wives" star -- and he's still upset and hurt about the things that led up to the split.

As we previously reported, Matt believed there were major "trust issues" in the relationship -- and now we know reconciliation is the last thing on his mind.

Meantime, Gloria insists the two are working things out -- and have a "dope" relationship and are working together to co-parent their twin sons.

We're told that Matt is 100% committed to the children -- he just has issues with their mother.

L.A. Clippers star Matt Barnes has separated from his reality star wife Gloria Govan ... TMZ Sports has learned -- and sources close to the couple tell us it's all over "trust issues."

Barnes and Govan were married back in 2012 -- and have 5-year-old twin boys together. 

Sources connected to the couple tell us Matt and "Basketball Wives: LA" star Gloria have been separated for about 6 weeks. 

We're told they're still technically living in the same house -- but it's just temporary and it's just a matter of time before one of them moves out and they start the divorce process. 

Maybe one of the biggest signs things were going south ... Matt hasn't posted a picture of Gloria on Instagram in months. And we haven't been able to find a picture of Gloria wearing her wedding ring since late-August.

Two big victories for Dallas Cowboys stud Orlando Scandrick ... first, he beat the Texans -- and then, he GOT BACK TOGETHER WITH HIS EX!

Just two months after "Basketball Wives: LA" star Draya Michele kicked him to the curb, the two were back in each other's arms in Dallas this weekend. 

Michele went to the game -- rooted for Orlando -- and even sat with his family members. 

Afterward, she posted a pic on Instagram with the caption, "We might not HAVE IT ALL TOGETHER, but TOGETHER we HAVE IT ALL."

Back before the split in August, Draya had said the two were close to marriage. 

Wonder if they're gonna pick up where they left off.

Draya Michele Sued

She May be Victim

Of Smear Campaign

EXCLUSIVE

Draya Michele Sued
Draya Michele just got sued by a club that had claimed she cancelled a gig because there were too many gay people ... but there's now evidence she may be the victim of a smear campaign.

TMZ broke the story ... a VIP hostess at Penthouse nightclub claimed Draya showed up for a scheduled event August 10, surveyed the crowd and then homophobically groused there were too many "f**s" and "d**es." The hostess said Draya stormed out, making the night a disaster.

But in the club's lawsuit ... there is not a word mentioned about homophobic comments. In fact ... the lawsuit doesn't even say Draya showed up. It says they got a text from her saying she was too tired to show.

The story in the lawsuit syncs up with the one Draya told us ... that she never showed up because she was sick. She also told us the club owner threatened to trash her in the media for being a no show.

The question ... did the owner make good on his threat?

Draya Michelle Homophobic Comment
"Basketball Wives" star Draya Michele ditched a paid gig at a West Hollywood nightclub because there were too many "f**s and d**es" ... so claim club honchos who are now threatening to sue her.

The hostess at Penthouse Nightclub tells TMZ ... Draya was supposed to host an event Sunday. When she arrived she looked at the crowd and said she didn't want to waste her time with "f**s and d**es" and left.

Draya told us she did NOT make the homophobic comment. She says never even showed up to the club that night ... she had called them to say she had to cancel because she was sick.  She says the club owner threatened to trash her in the media for being a no show.

The club fires back ... Draya accepted a $2.5K deposit, was obligated to show and the club lost money when a disappointed crowd simply left the club. The club now plans on suing her.

Draya tells us ... she'll be happy to entertain her LGBT fans on another night ... at a different club.

V. Stiviano Basketball Wives
There have been rumblings that V. Stiviano is gunning for a role on VH1's "Basketball Wives" ... so, when we saw "BW" exec producer Shaunie O'Neal out in L.A. this weekend, we had to ask if V. has a shot. 

Let's put it this way ... Shaunie (who's awesome btw) didn't exactly say no. 

We also asked O'Neal if she's ever reached out to Kobe Bryant's wife Vanessa to see if she'd be interested in doing the show.  

Check out the clip.
