It’s never a good idea to fight around children as Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan learned due to her recent arrest allegedly for child endangerment. According to breaking reports, Gloria Govan and her ex-husband were involved in a public fight about who would take their children for Labor Day weekend. TMZ quoted sources close to the situation as saying after a verbal altercation, Govan was taken into custody and her ex, Matt Barnes showed per the custody agreement it was his weekend with the children.
Any type of separation or divorce with children can be very traumatic as well as stressful. Often adults find it difficult to put the child’s needs first and to refrain from fighting around the children. Some are unaware that in these situations when there are children present, it is legally equivalent to various types of child endangerment and sometimes abuse.
At this time, Gloria Govan has not released a public statement or explained her side of the argument. The TMZ report quotes a source who was close to the situation. The identity of that source remains anonymous.
