Matt Barnes and Anansa Sims publicly split earlier this year after exchanging a series of jabs and statements on social media but that all seems to be water under the bridge. Over the weekend Anansa hit the Vegas strip to celebrate her close friend’s birthday and her retired NBA baby daddy was by her side.
Anansa and Shaya Tabb, her close friend and sister to Kobe Bryant, were in sin city with Matt. Matt recorded a video of the besties hitting the tables at a casino where Shaya bet on her brother’s number, 24, and won $550. The ex-Lakers player turned the camera on himself, “Big win, huh?”, explaining how Shay won by betting on 24. The group then enjoyed dinner together and had drinks for the occasion.
Anansa posted the clip with Matt and Shaya in a slide style post on Instagram.

Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Bestie @shayamb ❣️🎂🎈 My Ace, my Sister, my Partner in Crime 😄 I’m so grateful for our friendship and the 20 plus Birthday’s we’ve spent by each other’s side. This one was filled with laughter and tears, just know God’s got you and so do I ❤️ From 21 to 43 and beyond! #BFF I can’t get over your 21st Birthday pic 😍
Earlier this year, Anansa hinted that she was single in a series of Instagram posts then Matt Barnes reacted by claiming the mother was keeping their son, Ashton Joseph Barnes, away from him. This left the mom to defend herself in another series of posts and screenshots on social media. Matt eventually apologized publicly to Anansa for leaking their lengthy text conversation and for speaking harshly about her parenting.
Seems like they’re all healed from their hiccup. Good for them! What do you think about Anansa and Matt hanging together again?
