Matt Barnes And Anansa Sims Split -- Matt Claims He Is Being Kept Away From Baby As Anansa Files Restraining Order
Matt Barnes and Anansa Sims have been dating since 2017. The couple welcomed a baby in 2018 but have unfortunately split.
Just like his break up with Gloria Govan, this seems to be a messy situation. Barnes took to social media to say that he hopes he will be able to see the child they share soon hinting that he is being kept away.
Anansa then took to her Instagram page with a troubling message that speaks about controlling partners in regards to her former relationship with the ballplayer.
She also revealed that her kids see their fathers and that she's praying that the restraining order she has keeps her safe.
Barnes then returned to Instagram with his own lengthy statement.
'I was romantically involved with an Anansa for a short time before we became pregnant. I take full responsibility for my decisions, which led to a child entering the world. Because of the love that I have for my twins, I knew the pain of being apart from a child and wanted Ashton close to me as much as possible. In an attempt to do the right thing, I tried to play house. Again I take full responsibility for that choice,' he started.
Matt added: 'For more than a year, I tried to make the arrangement work. Unfortunately, it did not. As a retired professional basketball player, sports commentator, and show host, I fully recognize that my private life will often spill into the public. Anansa has every right to seek attention in whatever fashion she chooses., whether that’s faking trips to Chicago or posting or videos to create her own narrative. In the end I hope that we can co-parent and do what’s best for Ash.'
He went on to say that he will have to let the courts intervene and claimed that the restraining order 'comes out of the blue.'
