‘If You Need Someone to Roll Up’: Fans React After Matt Barnes’ Kids Offer Up Their Dad to Handle Kanye West’s ‘Pete Davidson Situation’ 

It be your own kids. Retired Los Angeles Lakers player Matt Barnes has a set of comedians on his hands after his twin boys Isaiah and Carter left fans on social media in tears this week after appearing to suggest that their dad would “pull up” on comedian Pete Davidson as a favor for Grammy Award-winning rapper Kanye West amid his relationship woes. 

As many may remember, in 2015, Barnes infamously drove 95 miles to confront his former Lakers teammate Derek Fisher while he was at the home of Barnes’ ex-wife, Gloria Govan. The twins presented the offer to Ye during a recent episode of their “The Barnes Boyz Podcast,” where they discussed the 44-year-old’s decision to pull out from headlining Coachella a little over a week before the first weekend.

“Speaking of Kanye, he just dropped out of Coachella. He was about to bring Travis Scott in; now they’re both out,” Isaiah stated before turning to his brother Carter for his thoughts. 

“I mean, I understand why he dropped out because, you know, he’s going through a divorce–all that paperwork,” the teen responded. However, he admitted, “I don’t know what paper is like because I’ve never done it before,” Carter noted that Ye also has to deal with the SNL comedian taking his spot as Kim Kardashian’s new romantic partner. “Yeah, we heard about that,” he quipped. 

Isaiah then addressed the “Jail” emcee directly, stating, “Oh yeah, and Kanye, if you ever need someone to roll up on Pete Davidson, my dad has a good history about that … So, if you ever need someone, holla at ya boy. He got you.” “Indeed he does,” the boys agreed. 

Barnes has since quashed his feud with his former teammate but the iconic reference, which was also mentioned on Ye’s eighth studio album “Life of Pablo,” left social media users who could remember that sports moment in tears. 

“I know I shouldn’t be laughing this hard at this,” said one Instagram user, before another person added, “That’s not my stepdaddy, they said.” A third user wrote, “It be ya own kids not letting you live stuff down.”

Another joked, “Derek Fisher needs to take the play station out their rooms for that. Play at yo Daddy house.”
