Setting the Record Straight on Gilbert Arenas and Laura Govan

We’ve made it a point to try and get both sides of the Gilbert Arenas-Laura Govan relationship out because we feel like Arenas has been publicly embarrassed and wrongfully depicted as a deadbeat by a vengeful woman. Think about how vindictive Govan is — she had Arenas served with court papers during halftime of one of his recent games. She also had a public relations person pitch a story to different news outlets in an effort to make Gilbert look like a horrible father. Because of the juicy nature of her claims, the story was widely published.

All the while Gil has been playing for the Magic, trying to adjust with his new team. He’s kept his mouth shut for the most part, but we did get a few more details about his side of their story on Sunday.

Deadspin published quotes that supposedly came directly from Arenas, explaining what really went on with him and his ex-fiance. For instance, Arenas says Govan, despite her pleas that she and the children have been abandoned “gets 20 grand a month. She got $8,000 allowance.”

He says she is living in a three bedroom townhouse in San Ramon, California. He also adds that “All I hear is, ‘I left the kids.’ She won’t let the kids see me.”

“All I hear is, ‘Gilbert took everything.’ Sure I did. She took a SL600. She took the Range Rover, which I don’t mind because she has to drive the kids around. Oh, all my furniture and all my clothes, about $4 million worth of stuff? Gone.”

Like I said, there are two sides to every story, and Govan’s side is looking weaker and weaker by the day, and her claims are coming across as more preposterous every time. Now that we have their relationship saga straightened out, we just need to do something about fixing Gilbert’s game.

Picture: Gilbert Arenas Served Court Papers at Halftime, Laura Govan Lying

Gilbert Arenas‘ on-again, off-again relationship with ex-fiance Laura Govan thankfully is finally over. The two have fought many times (including allegations she cheated with Shaq!) in the past yet they’ve still had several children together and even planned to get married. Now the relationship has come to an end, and Govan is playing dirty.

Govan hired a powerful LA-based attorney who “accidentally” filed court documents in with other paperwork so that it would be available publicly, and the documents miraculously ended up in the hands of the Washington Post. There have been numerous accusations coming from Govan intended to ruin Arenas’ character and make her look like a sympathetic figure.

She claims she was “abandoned” by Arenas and is not receiving any financial support from him. He says that’s b.s., explaining that she’s receiving $20,000 a month but wants more. He also added that the vengeful woman killed his pet sharks.

Anyway, continuing with her low, dirty methods, Govan had Arenas served with court papers at halftime of the Magic-Heat game Thursday night. Check out this picture via Mike Prada from SBN and Brian Packey on twitter:

Gil might not be the greatest person or family man as we’re coming to learn, but Govan is equally as bad and starting to look much worse. At times like this you can only feel badly for the children.

Shaunie O’Neal Files for Divorce, Shaq Cheating with Gilbert Arenas’ Fiance?

There was chatter around the internet last week that Shaq was having an affair with Gilbert Arenas’ fiance, Laura Govan. I never posted on the rumors because I didn’t consider the reports to be concrete, but the latest twist in the up-and-down relationship between Shaq and his wife Shaunie, leads me to believe the report was true. TMZ is saying that Shaunie filed for a separation in California, citing irreconcilable differences. Filing for a separation is just a precursor for an impending divorce.

As stated above, Shaq and Shaunie have previously had relationship problems. First Kobe blurted out to the police that Shaq pays his women off, then a women accused Shaq of stalking her, and apparently Shaq wanted to file for divorce after it was alleged Shaunie cheated on him. It’s just one big mess but now it seems like things are finally over. TMZ is suggesting that Shaunie’s all about the money and that’s why she went to California to file her papers. It’s pretty simple; in California, common law states that all property is half of each person, so that bodes well for Shaunie in the case of separation.
