Gilbert Arenas ABANDONS Pregnant Fiance' Laura Govan AND Their 3 Kids?!
Looks like that tumultuous on-again off-again relationship of 28-year-old Wizards tuned Magic baller Gilbert Arenas and the pregnant 31-year-old Laura Govan is on the outs again. But this time, Gilbert abandoned both Laura and all the kids and even cut money off to them--all during the Holidays!
We've got the deets on this foolery when you read on...
Gilbert's known to do some foul ish and to treat Laura like trash on many occasions--many times publicly doing so. But while Laura continues to take him back, she's gotten knocked up by him pretty much every year for the last 4 years. The two attempted to act like they were tighter than a pregnant woman's bra straps after the whole Shaq and Laura cheating debacle popped off. But now Gilbert has thrown deuces to his whole family.
After getting traded to the Orlando Magic weeks ago, Gilbert apparently picked up and left with even saying goodbye. Almost like this dude was just waiting on an out to get away from Laura. He left his mansion in VA and hit the road to Florida. Laura's rep (now she's repped by the same person as her "Basketball Wives" star sister Gloria Govan and Matt Barnes) says Gilbert has not spoken to Laura or the kids since Thanksgiving and has been avoiding doing so. And he has cut off all money to them. Even though Laura is several months along in her fourth pregnancy. The Washington Post reports:
Govan, who is four months pregnant with their fourth child, "has not heard from Arenas the whole month of December," said publicist Laura Wright in an e-mailed statement. "Govan and the children feel like they have been abandoned."
Wright - who has worked for Govan's sister Gloria and her fiance, Los Angeles Lakers forward Matt Barnes - said that Govan was left at their Great Falls home "with no money to purchase food or Christmas gifts."
The breakup happened around Thanksgiving. Though he didn't reveal a relationship rift at the time, Arenas recently told reporters he had been staying with Wizards teammate Nick Young for about a month.
WOW. But there's more. After his first game witht he Magic a few days ago, Gilbert made it very public he was ditching his old life back in DC/VA.
He told The Post after his Dec. 20 debut with the Magic that he was so eager to move that he bought a same-day ticket to Florida the minute he'd heard about the trade: "I went to the airport and left. I didn't have a chance to say bye to anybody. I didn't even say bye to the kids." (But Arenas also said that Washington would remain "in my heart" because "that's where I raised my kids and have my family.")
This isn't the first time Gilbert has done some foul ish like this. But, at the same time, is Laura THIS desperate to be a "baller's wife" that she will remain an eternal fiance and keep popping out kids and not have any type of back up plan for money...despite the fact this is not the first time this has happened? This ish is just pure foolery.
