Matt Barnes Scores Legal Victory Over Gloria Govan, Granted Sole Custody of Twin Boys

*Three months after police arrested reality TV star Gloria Govan for alleged child endangerment, a Los Angeles judge has awarded Matt Barnes sole custody of their twins sons.

The former NBA player was also granted an 18-month restraining order against his ex, that will be in effect until 2020.

As reported by PEOPLE, under the order, Govan must complete 26 sessions of anger management and 10 parenting classes, according to TMZ. She will still get visitation every other weekend from Friday until Monday morning, and she’s allowed to have dinner with the boys every Wednesday evening.

Barnes and Govan are reportedly still working out arrangements for the holidays.
