NBA All-Star, Gilbert Arenas, claims that former finace, Laura Govan,Â is exploiting him and their four children, in order to appear on the VH1 reality show, Basketball Wives: LA.
Wait, someone is trying to manipulate an NBA player for money and fame? Â Get out!
Govan says she’s simply using the show to get a new lease on life after breaking up with Arenas and giving birth to their son, Aloni, just three weeks ago.
I just wanted to showcase a new chapter in my life… A fresh start, a fresh outlook on life as a single mom.
According to reports, Arenas has filed a complaint with an LA judge, claiming that the VH1 show has no right to use his name or likeness in any of their programming, without his consent. Â Court documents filed state that, “The very presence of defendant Govan and the title of theÂ showÂ is an obvious reference to [Arenas].” Â Arenas and his attorneys hope that the court will place an injunction on the series, which would prohibit it from hitting airwaves.
This may be a totally mute point, but isn’t this show called Basketball Wives not Basketball Baby Mamas?
