People say he's a mess, and I’m a mess. You know what, we're each other's messes. Everybody has breakup and make up moments. It just so happens that ours is out in the public. You learn to grow.

It seems their marriage failed due to trust issues. That must have been hard! However, after the nasty split from Gilbert Arenas, Govan hasn't  dated anyone officially, raising four children alone must keep her busy.
