When it comes to reality TV couples, most stable relationship track records aren’t too pretty. So seems the case for Laker baller Matt Barnes and “Basketball Wife” Gloria Govan who have confirmed they are calling it quits.

While the couple has been on and off for over the last few years, both are now confirming with the press that they are indeed deciding to end their relationship. Matt emailed out a statement yesterday about the split:

“I’d like to address the rumors surrounding mine and Gloria’s relationship. We have reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways at this time. We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best.”

And Gloria, also wanting add her thoughts, tweeted her statement saying:

I’m sure you guys are hearing a ton of buzz about Matt and Me breaking up, sorry to say… its true!!! But the most important thing is focusing on my kids and continuing to have a good relationship with their father, thanks for your support!!!

The L.A. Times reported a heated twitter exchange between Matt and a fan – that was an obvious indicator on things falling between the couple:

Perhaps the most telling sign regarding Barnes’ feelings about Govan came last week during a Twitter exchange with a fan. That person suggested Barnes should marry her or else someone else will. Responded Barnes: “He can have her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Meanwhile, Govan retweeted the following message on Saturday: “If someone is dumb enough to walk away, be smart enough to let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you.”

As seen on the show, the two share 3-year-old twins Carter Kelly & Isaiah Michael, as well as a home in Palos Verde. Of course this will unlikely play out in an extra-dramatic way on the upcoming season of Basketball Wives.

Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned.
