The WASHINGTON POST reports that Arenas broke up with the mother of his children, Laura Govan, around Thanksgiving.
More from the WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger:
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.”
Arenas has yet to comment on the accusation from his former fiancee though he did tell reporters before he was traded from Washington to Orlando that he’d been staying at teammate Nick Young’s home for “about a month.”
After he was traded from the Wizards to the Magic, Arenas told the Washington Post on Dec. 20 that he couldn’t wait to jet - literally - from D.C.:
“I went to the airport and left. I didn’t have a chance to say bye to anybody. I didn’t even say bye to the kids.”
This isn’t the first time Govan has had a highly publicized breakup with Arenas. From the Post: Read more…
