Gloria Govan Scores Victory in Court – 50 Cent Wins $3M Defamation Lawsuit

A judge has shot down Matt Barnes request to get full custody of the twins he shares with ex Gloria Govan.

According to The Blast, attorneys for the former NBA star were in court Monday and claimed that Govan violated a restraining order that says she’s supposed to keep her 100 yards away from Matt or the kids, except when she has monitored visitations. Sources tell the celebrity news site that one of the violations — Barnes claims there were four — occurred last week when Gloria showed up for the kids’ football game.

To support his claim, Barnes claims to have photos of Govan with the kids at the football game in violation of the order. He also claims that Govan texted and called the kids on Sunday about the upcoming hearing, also in violation of the order.

Barnes asked a judge to rule that Govan not be allowed to see the children until a hearing about the restraining order takes place.

Attorneys for both sides appeared in court to battle it out and a judge sided with Govan, citing a lack of evidence.

The two sides will be in court again next month.

In related news, 50 Cent no longer has that $3 million defamation lawsuit lingering over his head, as The Blast reports the website that was suing him has dropped the case.

According to court documents, Cheri Media — the parent company of HipHopDX.com — dismissed their lawsuit against the rap star.

The site accused 50 of tarnishing their reputation by branding them “fake news” after running a story that suggested the “Power” actor’s deal with Bellator was not real and when 50 Cent called them “a bogus news outlet that does not check its facts,” they sued.

50 previously sued the site for publishing a photo of him without permission and eventually settled for $20,000.
