Aint this some sh*t?! During the haliftime of the Magic vs. Heat game on Thursday (Feb. 3), Gilbert Arenas was served child support and custody papers!
Before Thursday night’s game against the Miami Heat, Orlando Magic guard Gilbert Arenas was all smiles, posing and laughing with his teammates as they mocked Heat forward LeBron James’ famous “team photo” ritual. That soon changed at halftime.
The Associated Press reports that Arenas was served child support papers by his ex-girlfriend, Laura Govan, during halftime of Thursday night’s nationally-televised game.
A process server stopped Arenas as he walked off the court Thursday night against the Miami Heat. The court documents, obtained by The Associated Press, were a California petition filed by Laura Mendoza Govan. She identifies herself as his ex-girlfriend in the documents.
The petition seeks custody and child support for three children that Govan says Arenas fathered and has since “financially cut off.” She is also seeking support for another unborn child.
In the petition, she is seeking $109,000 in monthly support payments from Arenas and $1.3 million annually.
Govan states in the documents that she and Arenas had about a nine-year relationship that included a September 2008 engagement. The documents also say they lived together in a pair of homes that Arenas owned in Virginia while playing with the Wizards.
Govan is originally from California and the documents say she has returned to the West Coast and that she and the children are living in a low-budget hotel.
She claims in her petition that during the course of the relationship Arenas kicked her out of the homes several times. She says Arenas cut off contact with her and the children in early December, shortly before he was traded to the Magic and moved to Florida.
