Ex-NBA star Gilbert Arenas sued by girlfriend

gilbert-arenas-thumbs-upFormer NBA star Gilbert Arenas is in trouble, as his long-time girlfriend Laura Govan is suing him, according to TMZ.

Govan, who is the mother of Arenas’ four children, claims the former NBA star kicked her out of their L.A. mansion and then sold off her $1 million engagement ring.

The court documents obtained by TMZ say Govan started dating Gilbert in 2002, before he made nearly $200 million in NBA contract money.

The two never had a formal wedding, but Govan claims they “lived together as husband and wife” and Gilbert promised that she would “share equally” in all of his earnings from 2003 on …as if they were legally married.

Govan says the relationship fell apart around the end of 2014 … when Arenas “notified [Laura] to vacate the premises” of their home.

To make matters worse, Laura says Arenas then “forcefully took” the $1 million engagement ring he gave to her in 2008 and sold it without her permission.

Arenas worked his way up in the NBA, appearing in 3 NBA All-Star games, and holding career averages of 20.7 ppg and 5.3 apg in 35.1 mpg. He played in 552 NBA games, starting in 455 of them.

He last played in the NBA in the 2011-12 season, appearing in 17 games for the Memphis Grizzlies. He made little impact, averaging 4.2 points in 12.4 minutes per game. The 31-year-old also played in China with the Shanghai Sharks.
