Knicks coach Derek Fisher filed for divorce back in March of this year and Matt Barnes’ wife is “estranged.” The two instances couldn’t be any more unrelated except for the fact that they are.
Apparently, Fisher is dating Barnes’ estranged wife and Matt isn’t too thrilled about that. The two apprently got into a physical altercation over the weekend in L.A. about this matter. The NBA is looking into this.
Sources said Fisher was at the LA home of Gloria Govan — Barnes’ estranged wife?,? who stars on “Basketball Wives LA” — on Saturday. Fisher and Govan have been dating for “a few months,” a source said, after Fisher filed to divorce his wife of 10 years, Candace, in March.
But when Barnes learned that Fisher was at his former home with Gloria, he drove 95 miles to LA to “beat the s–t” out of Fisher, sources said.
“Derek was in Gloria’s back yard with about 10 people having a bonfire on ??Saturday,” said a source. “Derek’s separated from his wife and there’s a relationship with [Gloria].”
The source added, “Barnes was in Santa Barbara [at Memphis Grizzlies training camp] and heard that Fisher was in his house. He went crazy. He got in his car and went to the house and went after Fisher.”
A source close to Fisher ?confirmed the fight but said, “Matt came after Derek but he only had a few scratches … Derek’s not going to press charges, he’s going to let it go.”
