The 9-year relationship of Gilbert Arenas and Laura Govan has been a famously stormy one – breakups interspersed with reunions, babies and one elaborate marriage proposal.
But this time, with the former Washington Wizards star’s recent departure for Orlando, the drama appears to have gone nuclear. A representative for Govan – yes, there are reps involved this time – told The Washington Post that Arenas has cut off communication and funds from her and their three children.
Govan, who is four months pregnant with their fourth child, “has not heard from Arenas the whole month of December,” said publicist Laura Wright in an e-mailed statement. “Govan and the children feel like they have been abandoned.”
Wright – who has worked for Govan’s sister Gloria and her fiance, Los Angeles Lakers forward Matt Barnes – said that Govan was left at their Great Falls home “with no money to purchase food or Christmas gifts.”
