Matt Barnes Claims He Was Concerned For His Kids, Not Derek Fisher
Barnes told an ESPN reporter that he was at his home in Marina del Rey around 10 p.m. Saturday when he received a disturbing text from his son Carter:
“I’m like, first of all, why are you still up? It’s like 10 o’clock at night,” Barnes said. “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.”
Wow… Poor kids, stuck in the middle of all this fawkery.
