Matt Barnes Attacks Derek Fisher For Dating His Ex


Matt Barnes apparently found out that Derek Fisher was in LA at the home of his estranged wife Gloria and drove 95 miles to fight Fisher. Derek Fisher has been dating Gloria Govan for a few months since filing for divorce from his wife Candace back in March.

According to sources, “Derek was in Gloria’s back yard with about 10 people having a bonfire on ​​Saturday.” 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. 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.”

​A source close to Fisher ​confirmed the fight but said, “Matt came after Derek but he only had a few scratches … Derek’s not going to press charges, he’s going to let it go.”

Fisher left the scene before cops arrived, and Gloria Govan’s plans to file a restraining order.

According to the Knicks PR, Fisher missed Monday’s practice:

Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed the report and said the NBA’s security was not aware of the incident until today.

Wojnarowski’s report says the NBA is investigating. Also, he added this detail:

Barnes found Fisher in the backyard with Gloria and family members, and the altercation escalated from there, into the kitchen and then the home’s front room, one witness said.
