Matt Barnes said He Faked Relationship With Gloria for Basketball wives, and she cheated
Many viewers of Basketball Wives: LA found it very odd how Matt and Gloria made their split on the show. The reason the split seemed so weird and expected by both parties was the fact that the split had happened months before.
According to a statement released by Matt, Gloria asked him to “Act” like the two were still together for the sake of the show. Matt goes on to say Gloria had an affair with one of Matt’s friends.
Fan Me Down. So basically Matt put Gloria on front street about not only the relationship being faked, but the show being faked. You can read Matt’s statement below.
In May, Gloria and I decided to separate and in the best interest of her career, I foolishly agreed to portray that we were still together for the upcoming season of her show on VH1.
“As recently as August we decided to revisit a joint statement of our separation, but Gloria asked to delay making our separation public for the interest of her show. It is ironic now how Gloria is trying to manipulate the professional relationship between Eva Longoria and myself as the sole reason for our separation, when she knows we split up in May.
“The reason I broke my silence and released the separation statement a month ago, was due to her on going affair with a former friend of mine. Again, I wish her nothing but the best and I will continue to keep our children as my first priority.”
