NBA player Gilbert Arenas has allegedly cut off communication and funds from his wife Laura Govan and their three children, reports the Washington Post:

Click here for a picture of a four-months pregnant Laura.

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.”

A representative for the Orlando Magic, playing in Cleveland on Tuesday night, said they had not been able to reach Arenas for comment by press time.

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.Read More

    Gilbert doesn’t want to marry her and they haven’t been together for 8 years – Gilbert was messing with Gloria first until Laura swooped in! She is BAD NEWS! It’s factual that she slept with Shaq, Chris Webber, and quite a few other players. She tried to serve Gilbert at a basketball game after she had the first baby and they eventually settled – she’s a mess! She just was just spotted court side in LA using tix she bought herself. No sympathy for being crazy!

    Should have been married before getting knocked up repeatly. Wouldn’t have been so easy for him to leave without giving up that paper. I think hispanic and black women have far to many kids without being married anyway. Suffer the little children.

  • Monet December 30, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    Playing wifey doesn’t give you the same privliages as being married. She and her sister are both a mess and don’t seem to understand that. And what does she call abandoned and struggling because being left in a manison with all your luxury thing is the complete opposite. Maybe she stop using her children to get a paycheck and use her degree she supposedly has and go get a real job.

  • Truth Seeker December 30, 2010 at 2:06 pm

    I really don’t see how the married/not married part is too relevant. The point is they were bonded together and were starting a life together. Whether it was documented or not isn’t too relevant. What is relevant is that she cheated with Shaq. I was shocked this relationship didn’t end sooner. I can’t imagine he isn’t wondering if the child she’s carrying is really is.

    That said none of this is the children’s fault. Even if he is questioning all of their paternity, he has laid claim to them up to this point and owes it to them to continue being a father at least until it is proven that he isn’t.

    I wish bck would have put the pics up of her and the kids. Let everyone see her all glamorized while the kids hair isn’t comb and the shoes are on the wrong feet. smh. There is a lot of holes in this story and she isn’t being 100% truthful. smh lies people tell

  • Ellehsal... December 29, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    I’m not surprised by this story @ all…he is the same man who ran from child support with there first child…did she think she could expect more out of Gil. And think its kind of funny to see that she says he didn’t leave any money for food or xmas gifts when I clearly just saw Laura last night @ the Fantasia Concert here in DC…sitting in the front row rocking a brand new Berkin bag…so apparently somebody has a little bit of $$

  • lilkunta December 29, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    Laura isnt his wife. Please correct that.

    Just last month she gave an interview calling herself educated bc she has a masters degree in psychology: IS SHE USING HER DEGREE No, she is using her [word omitted]. You brag about your master’s in psychology [sentence omitted]

    I think she has book smarts but not life smarts.

    Why continually have condomless sex with him when he doesnt committ? If he refuses to use a condom, YOU wear one, there are female condoms. There are IUD, norplants, depo shots. There is no excuse…. unless you do see the kids as your meal ticket.

    • PlainMean December 29, 2010 at 4:26 pm

      Why have sex when he doesn’t commit? Because the babies are guaranteed paychecks! She’s not that dumb.

      • Trista December 29, 2010 at 5:56 pm

        But Plainmean, she not getting any money for those kids bc he left her and haven’t given her a dime. So, having all those kids hasn’t given her guarantee meal ticket. I wish women would stop thinkng like that bc it don’t always work.

        • PlainMean December 29, 2010 at 10:26 pm

          @Trista, I was being sarcastic. Although I think that was probably her reason for the kids. He may not be paying now, but he will when it’s court ordered.

      • Charla December 29, 2010 at 5:57 pm

        But I’m sure he doesn’t save/invest his money wisely. So a year after he’s out of the league, he’ll probably be broke like the rest of them and there will be no money coming in for those kids. Not the thousands of dollars per kid that she will want, anyways.

    • Trista December 29, 2010 at 5:58 pm

      Agree! Well, now she can go use her Master Degree in Psychology and go on Careerbuilder.com and find her a job so that she can support her and all her kids.

      She is a so silly to me.

      • Charla December 29, 2010 at 7:21 pm

        Yeah, her degree is one of her best decisions lol.

        • Christian December 29, 2010 at 7:28 pm

          Yall Funny but so true…lol

    • Kiesha December 31, 2010 at 12:34 am

      lol book smarts but no street smarts!!

  • Trista December 29, 2010 at 3:08 pm


    THEY WERE JUST “PLAYING HOUSE”. She didn’t think enough about herself or the situation, she was bringing any future child in to this world. That man was in trouble with the law and she cheated on him REPEATEDLY. She had all his kids and he never and will never marry her. She brought this on her self, so I really don’t care about her OR her kids (which might not even be his).

  • Jada December 29, 2010 at 3:02 pm

    Well, she cheated on him with Shaq, which contributed to Shaunie and Shaq break-up and now Karma has come back on her. You can’t do dirty stuff like that to other ppl and think that you will be ok. Karma

    • Kiesha December 31, 2010 at 12:32 am

      Jada, you are all in here!! SO true, Karma is a _______!

    • Makayla January 4, 2011 at 10:22 pm

      I AGREE!

  • LISA C December 29, 2010 at 2:45 pm

    Sounds like maybe…. a breakd0wn

  • Teri December 29, 2010 at 2:21 pm

    Why do people continue to bring children into tumultuous relationships? It was like yesterday when BCK was showing pics of her baby shower with, I guess, baby #3. I don’t understand? I know every relationship gets tested, but I can’t wrap my mind around bringing innocent children into mess. Lord, please help those babies. SMH.

  • ScorpioQueen December 29, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    She was messing around with Shaq and that might be his baby! I can’t stand Govan or Gloria. Gloria and her sister just thought they were all of that during that show and put down some of the other women. I can see that they weren’t no better.

    They both are some naive women with no respect for themselves. Stop having kids with men that won’t put a ring on your finger. I have no sympathy.

    • Teri December 29, 2010 at 2:23 pm

      “They both are some naive women with no respect for themselves. Stop having kids with men that won’t put a ring on your finger. I have no sympathy.”
      I certainly hope some women will figure this out one day.

  • mel December 29, 2010 at 1:01 pm

    She was messin around with Shaq so maybe that last baby is lookin more like Shaq than Gilbert. The whole situation is sad but I wouldnt be havin more babies unless he put a ring on it.

  • Charla December 29, 2010 at 1:00 pm

    Well that’s more likely to happen when you’re a “baby momma” and not a wife.

    Don’t get me wrong, a husband can leave his wife too, but a “baby daddy” has less incentives to stay.

    • Teri December 29, 2010 at 2:15 pm

      Carla, you are 100% ON POINT with that comment.

    • PlainMean December 29, 2010 at 4:23 pm

      And a wife would have access to the cash!

      • Fashionedbygod33 December 29, 2010 at 4:44 pm

        So true ladies.

      • braz December 29, 2010 at 4:45 pm


    • Ellehsal... December 29, 2010 at 4:52 pm

      yessss You hit that one right on the nose!

  • PlainMean December 29, 2010 at 12:04 pm

    He should have been left that garden tool, not the kids though. Sure there’s more to the story. Whoever gets to the press first gets to paint the other in whatever light they please!

  • maryamb December 29, 2010 at 11:33 am

    More like Gilbert Arenass!! No matter what is going on between the parents the kids are innocent. I am sure their is more to this story but I also believe dude is an A** with a capital A. He actions in the past have more than shown that. I feel sorry for the kids.

    • PlainMean December 29, 2010 at 12:02 pm

      Lol she’s no angel! How about when she was sleeping with Shaq around the same time she became pregnant?

  • universitychick December 29, 2010 at 10:44 am

    um, thats not his “wife”, but i hope this isnt true…

  • scorpio4lyfe December 29, 2010 at 10:35 am

    Im sure its more to this story than being reported. I will wait for Arenas to make his remarks…
