Gilbert Arenas Trying to Box Out Laura Govan, Basketball Wives: Los Angeles

by at . Comments

NBA star Gilbert Arenas wants to pull the plug on Basketball Wives: Los Angeles, claiming his baby mama is exploiting him by appearing on the show.

The Orlando Magic guard claims Laura Govan - the mother of his 4 children, and to whom he is NOT married to - simply wants to be a reality TV star.

In a lawsuit, Arenas claims that while Wives won't mention him by name "the very presence of [Laura Govan] and the title is an obvious reference."

Arenas notes his name was used in a press release announcing Govan's casting.

Step Into the Arenas

Gilbert claims Govan and the producers have no right to use his name or imageĀ  - expressed or implied - so he's asking for an injunction to halt the show.

He also wants cash for his troubles. He'll need it. Govan slapped Arenas with a child support lawsuit at halftime of a game this spring against the Heat.

LeBron also scored 51 against him that night. Talk about getting served!
