NEW REPORT: Laura Govan Details Rocky Relationship With Gilbert Arenas, Talks His Million Dollar Spending Habits

Their relationship has been tumultuous at best, but now, Laura Govan and her ex-fiance Magic baller Gilbert Arenas look like they're done for good this time.

 

Laura, who claims Gilbert abandoned her and their kids in November, has filed a new report with her attorneys that details Gilbert's crazy spending habits, just how often he kicked her out of the house, miscarriages, her allowance, and more drama.  Read on...

This ish just keeps getting messier.  Last month, Laura Govan made claims that her baby daddy 3 times over--their fourth baby is due in June--Gilbert Arenas, packed up all his ish in his Great Falls, VA home as soon as he got traded from the Washington Wizards to the Orlando Magic, and got ghost without leaving her or the kids a dime, or a house to live in.

Now, Laura claims he's not only a deadbeat, but he had no problems spending his millions on things like shark tanks, pools, and other things to keep himself entertained.  But he did give her an $8,000/month allowance.  And supposedly only proposed to her because he felt bad for putting her out numerous times.

In 9 pages of "confidential" notes to her family law attorney, Laura detailed her and Gilbert's crazy relationship.  How did these notes get out?  Apparently they showed up in an unrelated case filed publicly by the L.A. Superior Court.

According to the Washington Post, Gilbert bought a $1 million dollar shark tank and pool, and told Laura he's not getting her a nanny because she had the kids, so she should care of them:

In confidential notes, Govan -- who is expecting her fourth child with Arenas -- describes fights where he repeatedly threw her out of the house, his profligate spending (including a shark tank/pool/grotto complex said to cost $1 million), lavish vacations and spending sprees at toy stores.

And yet they never had a nanny, Govan complains, according to the notes: "he would state 'you had them you watch them.' "

Their nine years together came to an end in November, shortly before Arenas was traded to the Orlando Magic and moved to Florida; Govan last month claimed through a rep that he had abandoned her and the kids, cutting off all communications and support.

But the notes -- which appear to be her version of their life together -- reveal lots of details about their relationship. Arenas, 29, and Govan, 31, first met in 2002, when she was coaching basketball at a Golden State Warriors camp. In addition to their three young children (the fourth is due in June), they went through other pregnancies that ended in miscarriages. Along the way, there were lots of break-ups and make-ups.

Some of the meeting notes confirm what Arenas himself shared on his popular, now-defunct blog: "I've done kicked her out of my house almost every weekend, yet she's still here and she still believes in me," he wrote in 2008 in a post describing his marriage proposal to her. The notes tell an almost identical story: "The reason he proposed to her is that he put her out of the house every other weekend since they met and she stays with him, so something must be working."

Damn homie.

And she also detailed his lavish expenses and her allowance.  Apparently she still wasn't happy with what Gilbert would give her and the kids:

There's a lot about how Arenas spent his money, based on her understanding of the household finances: "he states he makes 1.5 million per month," read the notes. Arenas lavished plenty on their Great Falls home, dropping $100,000 on landscaping, $5,000 a month for housekeepers, $675 "per car" washing, and $1 million for his backyard pool and grotto. His sharks are expensive: $5,000 a month to feed them and $1,500 for a keeper to drive from Columbus to take care of them.

He was extravagant when it came to toys for the children -- ages 5, 4 and 2 -- buying a $60,000 train set and an $8,000 toy Mercedes-Benz electric car, and dropping between $30,000 and $40,000 during a shopping spree at FAO Schwartz. (Arenas also told this story on the blog, but didn't divulge the amount of money spent.)

The notes say Arenas gave Govan $8,000 a month for expenses; more than half went to pay the mortgage on a home she owns in California, and the rest went for groceries ($500-$600 a week from Peapod), doctors, classes and other expenses for the children.

Two weeks ago, a pregnant Laura reportedly moved herself and the kids back to Cali.  Womp.

Is she really complaining

Is she really complaining about geting 8,000 dollars a month! That's about what some people make in a year WORKING. Plus she has all those shoes/clothes in her closet, go start an Ebay account for some extra cash! I don't see why anyone should feel more sorry for her than him.

Stop having babies just to

Stop having babies just to hold on to a man! It doesn't matter if he is rich or poor. In the end the woman is usually the one who has to take care of those children. If the man is not doing what he should be doing, (and having lots of money does not a great dad make) then stop having kids just to try to hold on to him!!! Cut your losses and move on. Get your child support and live within your means and make sure that the kids are healthy and happy. Once you have the kids it's not about you anymore - THE END!

The real victims are the

The real victims are the children. Gloria knew this man had issues yet she kept having babies with him. He kept kicking her out and then proposed to her because he felt "sorry" for her. That sounds like a toxic relationship. She needs to sell what she can and save her money. These innocent babies didn't ask for this. Gilbert needs a psych evaluation seriously. His mother, now deceased, abandoned him when he was a child and she was a drug addict. Usually when men have little or no regard for women it stems from issues with their mothers. I'm not justifying or defending his behavior but after reading that article in the Washington Post it makes more sense. I hope that she and the baby stay healthy. I

If the relationship was bs

If the relationship was bs from the start why continue to have all the kids!! Yes he should take care of his kids, but if he wants to be a moron and spend every cent he makes thats on him he's the one bouncing the ball on the court......Maybe woman should start asking for agreements for support prior to pushing put 4 kids, he shouldn't be offended by the request if he plans on supporting his family.

I really dont understand why

I really dont understand why if a woman ends up with a man with money all of a sudden she becomes a gold digger... 8000 dollars a month is nothing when your standard of living is expensive and yes it is becasue they are in a whole different income brackett.. If their father? her man.. makes it why shouldnt they be able to enjoy it.. Yes she had them she watches them... but dont forget he made them too so he needs to take care of them... he made that family. Get a job? when ? who"s gonna keep the kids if he wont pay a nanny... you all are forgetting they are not a regular family .. unfortunately she cant just drop them off to any local daycare and its not like she can walk in a welfare building and ask for help... not gonna happen!! and yess she shoulda put the babys on hold till she got an "I Do" but guess what that means NOTHING these days. They will leave you just as fast as they would if you never got married... and one more thing.. just because a man has money and he chooses to have kids woith a woman doesnt mean their isnt any love involved... obviously if she kept comming back..she loved him.. women with a broke men have dealt with that bull and more.. while having babies still holding on to a hope and a dream.. unfortunately we women deal with too much for the sake of love or even the fantasy of keeping out family together... I hope she drains his ass dry!!! cuz as a Man! he shouldnt have ever abandoned his family PERIOD... he knew the woman he had before he choose to keep getting her pregnant and then leaves her while she is carrying #4 ...without a dime??? and you people call her a gold digger.... let that had been me... youd be callin me a Diamond digger.. and thats real...

The standard of living is his

The standard of living is his not hers. I'm sorry but as women some of us need to get a clue and a damn career. Where is the plan b here? Or was plan b just popping out babies for support payments. I know women that live on alot less than $8,000 per month and do fine. Stop buying purses and expensive cars and shoes you can't afford and purchase an education. This is way too common nowadays!

Agreed EB! And even if she

Agreed EB! And even if she was a gold digger so what? They're still his babies and he chose to have them with this woman so he has to pay up! And definitley not $8000 a month when you're making 1.5 mil, c'mon! On a side note: women love to hate on the gold diggers but hey they're getting their own and most men aren't stupid, they know what they're getting themselves into! It's a mutual agreement! And the rest of the world shouldn't be caring if it's not hurting nobody. If there are is no previous marraige/children etc...being broken up by a gold digger then so what! Who are we to pass judgement on grown women and who they sleep with and grown men and what they do with their money. Go Ms Govan, get what's yours!

This story...I just cant even

This story...I just cant even rap my mind around it I guess Mr Arenas really knew how to work it here, all the benefits of a wife without having to give her anything when hes done with her. She must not be thinking straight to have all these kids with him/depend on him without being married...that ish is crazy. 8000 a month is enough for the kids' expenses. If she had other income to supplement it would create a nice lifestyle.

The only people who get my

The only people who get my sympathy is the children, whose can't help it if their mom is a professional golddigging baby momma, and daddy is a moron. Who if he don't watch it will be on that list of athletes broke 5 years after their career ends. Gilbert has tossed out the mom of his kids more than once, she goes back and ends up knocked up. Any real woman handling her business would not tolerate getting kicked out, and when all this crazy spending Laura was right there, then wanna turn around hiring PR firms whining about not being able to feed her kids,bish please,should have been stacking dough. Also running behind Shaq didn't pay off either huh. If Gilbert didn't want to be responsible for all these kids, he didn't have to run through her raw. Both Laura and Gilbert need a Ho Sit Down.

I'm sure he didn't just start

I'm sure he didn't just start acting like this so why wasn't she saving money for a rainy day?! Those are his kids so off top they should be taken care of. But instead of continuing to have children, go back to school and get your master's. Start your own business so you can set you and your kids up. When you have children you have to be about your business. She may not understand that her children are watching her and she is supposed to be an example to them. And men like independent women, if you're sitting around collecting $8,000.00 a month and having children not doing anything with your life then what good are you to anyone? Women have your own for yourself and if your significant other decide to trip you can keep it pushing. She is dependant on him which is why she continue and will continue if he came back to put up with bs. www.theladiezlounge.com Inspiration for Women

Im sorry I don't feel bad for

Im sorry I don't feel bad for her. If you are willing to have multiple children with no marriage and allow this man to evict you when ever he wants than you are a dumb ass. She mentioned that she has a degree. So do I. It never dawned on her to take the money he was giving and save it to take care of herself and her children if he acts brand new. Maybe have a job and bank her money. What's wrong with these stupid hoes. Atl east be a smart hoe. These sisters are idiots. She has no self identity. Education has nothing to do with common sense.
