Former Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas and his girlfriend of nine years Laura Govan have had a roller-coaster relationship to put it mildly. We’re talking major drama. The newest development of their saga? Gilbert Arenas apparently left the pregnant Laura Govan without saying goodbye to her or their three children and also reportedly cut off money yo his family. So what happened?
The two supposedly broke up around Thanksgiving and Arenas went and moved in with a fellow teammate. Laura Govan has claimed that she hasn’t heard from Arenas at all during the month of December and that she and her kids feel abandoned. She also claims they were left with no money to buy food or Christmas presents. And now the relationship has even more distance. Gibert Arenas was traded to the Orlando Magic. And he was more than happy to leave – bought a same day ticket – and said, “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.” And he was quoted that Washington would be “in my heart” because “that’s where I raised my kids and have my family.”
The two have broken up several times in the past but have reconciled each time. Is this just another breakup or is this it forever? Regardless, hopefully Gilbert Arenas will support his family again soon!
