People are fascinated with Eva Longoria’s dating life. A new rumor in the mill involving our cover girl linked her to Matt Barnes, the L.A. Lakers’ forward and father of Gloria Govan’s (star of Basketball Wives L.A.) children. Of course, it is not true – we all know how happy Longoria is with her boyfriend Eduardo Cruz.
The rumor got to Longoria, who took to social media to shoot it down. “First Jessica simpson, now this. Once again, press gets it wrong, matt barnes and I are not dating!” she posted on her WhoSay page. “We are doing a charity event together for Padres and Athletes vs Cancer. . Why is the truth never the headline? why did I bother to comment when they put your statement at end of articles? #stillannoying”
According to US Magazine, the rumors stemmed from the New York Post’s Page Six, which claimed that the 36-year-old Desperate Housewives star seemed “very flirty” with 31-year-old Barnes, who recently announced his split from Govan via an e-mailed statement.
We are glad that the rumors aren’t true – and love that Longoria defends herself!
