Son Told Matt Barnes About Derek Fisher

Last night news leaked that Matt Barnes had driven to estranged wife Gloria Govan's house and attacked her rumored new boyfriend, NY Knicks coach Derek Fisher [click here if you missed that].

Matt tells his side of the story…

Matt Barnes tells ESPN he decided to go over to Gloria's house after receiving a text from his 6-year-old son Carter.

Matt explains, 
"I'm like, first of all, why are you still up? It's like 10 o'clock at night?' So I text back, 'I love you and I miss you, too.' Then I FaceTimed him. I'm just like, 'Hey, what's up buddy?'"
"Now, Carter is like the rambunctious one. He's always jumping off the walls. And when I saw his face, he was just sitting there, and I knew something was wrong. I was like, 'What's wrong, Carter?' and he shook his head, 'No.' Then he lays his head down on the couch, puts a pillow in front of his face and says, 'Mommy's friend Derek is here.'
"This wasn't a phone call. We were on FaceTime. I could see him and the look on his face."
Matt also denies driving 95 miles to confront Fisher claiming,
"I can't believe people think I was some maniac driving 95 miles and listening to Tupac to go beat somebody up. No. I live 15 minutes away, and I was going over to check on my kids because they seemed uncomfortable. That was my main reason for going over there."
