Gloria Govan of "Basketball Wives" recently shared an adorable picture that showed her and her husband Derek Fisher with their four children.
"Basketball Wives" star Gloria Govan shared a cute family picture showing her husband Derek Fisher and their four children, all smiles while they embraced each other.
In her long caption to the lovely picture, the television personality wrote about the hardship the world is facing as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and thanked God that her family is okay.
She recalled her father's words to her about the days being long, while the years remained short. In concluding her caption, Govan said that these were hard times for many people, including her family, but remained grateful for their wellbeing. She wrote:
"...we're still blessed to be here, to be alive, well, and safe. From my family (missing you @chloe.rogers4) to yours;..."
Gloria Govan was formerly married to Matt Barnes, with the ex-couple having a rocky relationship from the start. They were first set to marry in 2010, but called it off, only to get back and marry in 2013.
The marriage didn't last long, however, and the pair had several fights over the custody of their twin sons, Carter and Isiah, as well as issues over child support payments.
"Basketball Wives" negatively affected their relationship and put them too much in the spotlight.
The relationship became even more heated when Barnes discovered that Govan was in a relationship with his ex-teammate, Derek Fisher, eventually leading him to brawl with the latter.
In an interview with Vlad, Barnes explained that the fight with Fisher was due to him discovering that the latter was in a relationship with Govan, and used to visit her in the house, which he (Barnes) was still paying for.
He was also angry that Fisher never said anything about him dating Govan, and was doing all that behind his back. The former basketballer also narrated what led to his separation from Govan.
According to Barnes, the reality television series, "Basketball Wives," negatively affected their relationship and put them too much in the spotlight, something he found hard to deal.
Derek Fisher and Gloria Govan began dating in 2015 and got engaged on April 7, 2018. Before meeting Gloria, Derek was married to Candace Fisher for eleven years (2005-2016).
