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.

Chicks like Laura make me

Chicks like Laura make me sick. Like for real how desperate for love and affection can you be? Its clear that he doesn't respect or love her and she's stupid to believe that he ever did. The only people I feel sorry for are the kids. These two "adults" should be ashamed of themselves. Wtf are you teaching your kids? A) to be weak? B) to be a deadbeat father? GTFOH somebody call child services because to me it looks like neither parent are able to take care of themeselves let alone some innocent children.

LMAOOOO @ "get rid of reggie

LMAOOOO @ "get rid of reggie bush non playin ass" hahahaha. but I'm with you. People like LeBron and Kobe are very talented and do bring in a lot of money into their respective franchises but damn...$90 million to do what you love (Kobe)? I'm not sure that's really necessary. It only propels stupid behavior. I'm sure they would play for a lot less.

Considering the amount of

Considering the amount of money the owners and the franchises make, the players' salary are only a small fraction of these billion dollar industries. In addition to that, the money they receive for the life time damage inflicted on their bodies (especially football players) is well deserved.

It's hard for me to feel

It's hard for me to feel sorry for either of them. Number 1 she should've known better than t keep laying up with him having 4 kids.If he didn't marry you after the 1st one that should've been a clue right there no man is gonna buy the cow if he can have the milk for free.She should've waited tl he put a ring on it.Second, her airing out what he's done she's hurting no one but the children. Both of them are selfish, ignorant and have no class. A real man would never walkout on his kids like that. And a real women would never have 4 kids with someone when she knew with second child there were problems already.for her to have two more is very irresponsible. she should've been on birthcontrol or the nuvaring.

Its sad that now she wants to

Its sad that now she wants to play the victim. Um sweetheart you should have left the man a long time ago. U obviously stayed and kept having babies for the $$$. Now you are alone, and have four children to raise. My only hope is that you teach your daughters to love themselves and to not look to a man for validation and security. This is what happens when you put your faith in the wrong place. Whenever you put your faith in a man you will always fall short, put you trust and faith in God because he will never fail you! AMEN

Isn't it funny how she was in

Isn't it funny how she was in that magazine talking all that ish about being a college graduate and not a sack chaser. But her fall is very similar to that of a sack chaser. After this baby get some counseling, remain single, and some birth control you can't make having babies a career. Good luck. Lets not kick her while she's down there are children involved

Ummmmm, am I missing

Ummmmm, am I missing something. Explain that Gilbert took care of the children, with a roof, clothes, food, and with lights. Right? Which is the basic necessities if you look at it. Is it you want more money for self, because you want to live a "hollywood lifestyle"? Because, you are sounding as if Gilbert is spending all this money on sharks, pools, cars, or whatever and you are only getting "8,000". What's really hood Gloria, I mean Laura?

She's lucky he was giving her

She's lucky he was giving her an allowance! Does she work? If not then he's right she can take care of the kids, it's not like he's not providing for them. Did she expect to have them then go shopping everyday? And come on he had just gotten traded! Maybe he needed a little time for himself?

I do feel bad for this young

I do feel bad for this young woman and hope she secures legal representation ASAP!He was JUST WAITING for her to MOVE OUT of that house which is why he cut her off financially . Now he can requests the courts find a much smaller home and thus much smaller support payment for her and her "CHILDRENZ" Unfortunately she didn't see the hand writing on the wall ? with the many times he kicked her out that this relationship was doomed .Theres no FREAKING was I would have Baby after Baby after Baby from a man who continues to "dog" me ! Additionally I dont think she realizes the "RUMORS" of her cheating with Shaq may have been the FINAL nail in her coffin ! Guess she can ask her sister GLORIA for a little help ? But then again maybe not cause even her sister who tried " popping out babies" from MATT BARNES can get HER MAN TO MARRY HER EITHER ! Those two sisters are a MESS!

oh Laura trying to build up

oh Laura trying to build up her case for child support. why else would she put out Gilberts money buisness. Having 5 children and not married will not guarantee a Large sum of cash! her and sister Gloria are not married, but pop out them kids. And can any of them find some sort of jobs or open a business something. just for there own back up security.

Unfortunately I don't feel

Unfortunately I don't feel bad for her at all. It seems like she's just complaining cuz the bread wasn't broken off for her...she didn't state that he wasn't spending on the kids, he just wasn't spending on her (which technically he doesn't have to)...these hoes need to learn just cuz you have kids by them doesn't mean you'll be set!!!

she is a damn fool!!! there

she is a damn fool!!! there is no way in hell that he would kick me out every weekend and i'mma stay and take that. people treat you the way you allow them to treat and they way you start off a relationship is the same way it will carry out. what kind of example is she as a mother to allow her children to see this man kicking her out his house. i don't feel sorry for her ass at all, i feel sorry for the kids. she'll find another baller, don't they alway?!
