Recently, we caught up with NBA baller, Matt Barnes and his reality TV star wife, Gloria Govan (of Basketball Wives LA), at the premiere of ‘Baggage Claim’. theJasmineBRAND.com correspondent, Sabrina Campbell, chatted with the couple about Laura Govan’s recent over-the-top birthday bash, and the ever-growing drama surrounding Matt’s former team mate, Lamar Odom. Check out our conversation below.
theJasmineBRAND.com: So, we just covered your sister’s party. How was it for you?
Gloria Govan: Oh it was amazing! The entire weekend was so much fun, we had a blast! You know, the entire family came out so that was really cool. And any time we get together, it’s just a circus. So it was fun, it was a lot of fun.
JB: So I have a question for you, Matt. Do you – [or] have you spoke with Lamar Odom?
Matt Barnes: I haven’t talked to Lamar for a while, but we’re good friends and I just wish him the best right now, on the friendship level, not to worry about career. I think right now is the most important for him to focus on himself and his marriage and I’m sure he’ll be alright.
JB: Do you think that the public is too critical?
Matt Barnes: You know, you can never really believe what you read or what you hear. And so, I think the public is quick to jump to conclusions, what I want to say. But like I said, he’s a good guy and I know he’ll land on his feet.
