Gloria Govan And Derek Fisher In Freaky Car Crash!

Gloria, who is 34 in age has been involved in a freaky and reckless car accident with her boyfriend and former NBA player Derek Fisher.

In June 2017, Derek's 2015 Cadillac flipped over just around 3 AM PT as he was headed northbound on the Ventura 101 Freeway. But thankfully, neither Derek nor Gloria was injured in the crash. 

As a result of that, Derek was arrested and taken into custody after it was suspected that he was driving under the impact of alcohol. The car wreck could have been deadly from how badly the car had flipped. 

Fisher’s car was said to have veered onto the shoulder as it approached an interchange and then hit the guardrail and curb which resulted in the car rolling over, flipping and coming to a stop on its roof.

Gloria and Derek's representative released a statement that read,

"On behalf of Derek Fisher and Gloria Govan, they would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. They are beyond grateful that they are both okay and that no one else was involved. Both Derek and Gloria are home and ask that you respect their privacy." 

Gloria and Derek are dating one another since the month of October 2015. Derek is a decorated player, who has won an astonishing five titles with the Lakers in Los Angeles and has also represented some of the other big clubs like the Golden State Warriors, Oklahoma City Thunder, Utah Jazz as well as Dallas Mavericks. 

Also, did you know, Fisher was also famously involved in a physical dispute and a heated feud with his former LA Lakers teammate and the ex-husband of Gloria Govan, Matt Barnes?

As a result of the conflict, Barnes then went on to play for Memphis while Derek was handed a two-game suspension.

Dispute Over Custody Of Children

Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan have two children together, twin boys Laura Govan and Lonnie Govan.

The formerly married couple’s toxic relationship took them to court multiple times. The reason for their court visit was the dispute over the custody of their two boys. It was very public and lengthy court case between the estranged pair started in 2014 where both fought for the custody of their children.

Saying the legal issues of the reality star and her ex was dramatic would be an understatement.

In October 2018, Matt and Gloria were involved in a major alteration in their boys’ school parking lot. The fight escalated as both the parents wanted their sons to spend Labour Day weekend with them.

Well, the tug of war escalated in such a way that police had to be called to end the fight. In the end, Gloria was arrested and taken into custody. But, the judge later ruled she won’t be charged with felony citing lack of evidence.

In a major win, Matt finally won the sole custody of his children in November 2018. In addition, he was also granted 18 months of a restraining order from his ex-wife Gloria. Although, he won, judges weren’t cruel with Gloria.
