We thought everything was cool between Matt Barnes, Derek Fisher, and Matt’s Ex/Derek’s Fiancee Gloria Govan based on our last story about their weird love triangle.

The Blast.com now reports that Gloria Govan has filed a lawsuit against the former NBA player, claiming his social media comments have drastically hurt her reputation and as a result, she is unable to earn a decent income because of it. “Govan claims her income came from acting and reality television (she was an original cast member on “Basketball Wives”) and her ability to earn a living is tied to her reputation. She says since their divorce and ensuing custody battle became nasty, Barnes has repeatedly made demeaning and patently false statements about her in the media and social media. For instance, he claimed on social media she embezzled money from their joint bank accounts in order to buy her family homes, accused her of making fraudulent transactions and of forging his name on lease documents. He also claims she barred him from seeing or having access to his kids and claimed she misused his child support payments. Govan claims the statements have caused her and continue to cause her harm to her reputation, causing her damages arising from mental pain and suffering, along with lost opportunities.” – TO
