Exclusive: Gloria Govan On Matt Barnes Separation: ” I Think It Was Harder On Other People Than It Was On Me”

By  | 

Gloria Govan’s recent separation to Matt Barnes wasn’t as difficult for the star as one might think.

During The Wedding Ringer premiere in Los Angeles, Gloria shared with HipHollywood what it was like living out her split in the public eye. “My entire relationship was really in the public. Not that it was easy, but it was easier this time around. I’ve kind of dialed it down in the social media aspect of it, I’m not posting things or tweeting. I’m just kind of letting it ride out.”

She added, “My relationship with Matt is so up and down I don’t think a lot of people were surprised … I think it was harder on other people than it was on me. I’m not fortune telling, I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future.”

Gloria and her sister, are currently working on a reality show that will chronicle their lives as single mom’s. While on the carpet, Laura chimed in, “both of us being single, single moms, and coming out, and just showing who we really are, is going to be a big thing for us.”

    Please! You’re not really a single mom when the dads are in the kids lives and you’re getting huge checks every month

      Definition of a single mom means living in home with kids, being responsible for their day to day activities. Doesn’t mean fathers aren’t involved. Just means that the couple are separate.

        You have to admit that being a single parent in today’s society refers to more than just relationship status. It is, to a great extent, unfair and offensive to refer to oneself as a single parent when there are resources available to you via other people. Having emotional and financial assistance for your children is a really big separator between simply separated/divorced/widowed and truly being a single parent.

          Single Parent only refers to your status of not being in a relationship and having kids. You guys are putting way more into it than it implies.
