Over the weekend, things got REAL ugly (and physical) between NBA baller Matt Barnes and Knicks coach Derek Fisher. According to a Page Six source, the two, who once played as teammates, were in a physical brawl over Barnes’ estranged wife, Gloria Govan. Allegedly, the incident took place on Saturday. The site reports:
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.”
Another source said, “Someone told Matt that Fisher was at the house and he drove down there — he went over to confront Derek.”
