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 image  - 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.

Gilbert Arenas and the Orlando Magic got served by LeBron James (51 points!) and the Miami Heat on Thursday night.

Midway through that disappointing game, meanwhile, the controversial point guard got served in a different manner: a process server presented Arenas with child support lawsuit documents as he exited the court at halftime.

Govan is the mother of three kids with Arenas, and she's expecting the couple's fourth.

But she claims the former All-Star - who was suspended last season for bringing guns into his team's locker room and who reportedly spends $5,000/month on pet shark food - abandoned her and his children when he was traded in December.

No word yet on how much Govan is seeking in child support.

When NBA star Gilbert Arenas was traded to the Orlando Magic this month, he didn't just leave behind the Washington Wizards. He also abandoned his pregnant girlfriend and three children.

A publicist for Laura Govan tells The Washington Post that the guard's baby mama "has not heard from Arenas the whole month of December." He reportedly left his family "with no money to purchase food or Christmas gifts."

Arenas actually seemed to acknowledge his irresponsible behavior, telling the newspaper soon after the trade: "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."

Washington Wizards All-Star guard Gilbert Arenas was sentenced on Friday to two years' probation for a gun-toting standoff in the NBA team's locker room.

The judge showed leniency to Arenas, who avoided serving jail time after pleading guilty to felony weapons possession for bringing four guns to work.

Arenas must spend 30 days in a halfway house, perform 400 hours' community service and contribute at least $5,000 to a fund for violent crime victims.

The judge said he accepted responsibility, was genuinely remorseful, and was a "decent person" who performed acts of charity and kindness to strangers.

Arenas, wearing a dark suit and tie while showing no emotion, admitted his acts were "stupid and irresponsible. I am very sorry that this all happened."

BANG, BANG: Gilbert Arenas won't be doing prison time for packing heat, but he won't be suiting up with his Washington Wizards teammates anytime soon.

Under a plea deal, prosecutors agreed not to seek more than six months in jail for Arenas. But the judge in the case was not bound by the agreement and could have sentenced him to as little as probation or up to five years in prison.

Prosecutors, led by Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Kavanaugh, had recommended that Arenas, who is suspended indefinitely, serve three months of incarceration, three years' probation and be required to do 300 hours of community service.

Kavanaugh told the judge that Gilbert Arenas was convicted of a similar gun offense previously, that he gave multiple versions of the event, that he attempted to hide the truth and had failed to show genuine remorse. But it was not to be.

If there were awards for NBA gossip, Gilbert Arenas and Shaquille O'Neal would be unanimous first-team selections - and that's before their lives intertwined.

Now that Shaq is accused of an affair with Laura Govan, Arenas' fiancee?

Wow. O'Neal has been rumored to have slept with another player's significant other for weeks, but this report is the first we've read with a name attached.

The fact that it's Gilbert Arenas' fiancee is nothing short of amazing. Rumor has it Shaq and Laura Govan became involved at some point in the past year. 

An email allegedly from Govan said she'd meet with Shaq "as long as u taste me and make me cum LOL." Um, LOL is right ... or WTF. Peep the email here.

Did Laura Covan cheat on Gilbert Arenas with Shaq?

Gilbert Arenas and Laura Govan have had a turbulent relationship, complete with subpoenas, child custody battles, various breakups and a couple of kids.

Still, they've managed to make it work ... at least until now. If she really slept with Shaq, who is also accused of an affair with Vanessa Lopez, who knows.

Shaq's wife, Shaunie, seeks legal separation from the big fella, who may have been sleeping with Dominica Westling too. Who does he think he is, Tiger?

Arenas is suspended indefinitely by the NBA after pleading guilty to a felony gun charge. That charge stemmed from a locker room standoff in December.

Arenas' Wizards and Shaq's Cavaliers hadn't played since back on November 18, so it's unlikely Gil was packing heat with the intention of whacking Shaq.

WHO, ME? Shaq is accused of an affair with Gilbert Arenas' fiancee.

A man with the nickname of Agent Zero deserves a good mug shot, don't you think? Gilbert Arenas was formally booked on a felony gun charge Tuesday.

The Washington Wizards star pleaded guilty January 15 to one count of carrying a pistol without a license - a felony - and will likely avoid any jail time.

He remains on indefinite suspension, however, and may be at risk of having his $111 million contract with the NBA team voided due to his conviction.

The charges against Arenas stemmed from a locker room standoff with teammate Javaris Crittenton late last year after a prank went horribly awry.

Here's Arenas' mug shot, which TMZ obtained (and a bonus Gilbert Arenas mug shot we found via an image search and added for good measure) ...

Gilbert Arenas will be sentenced March 26.

Meanwhile, NBA Commissioner Daniel Stern announced today that the two players have been suspended for the remainder of the season without pay.

Stern released a statement claiming "The issue here is not about the legal ownership and possession of guns, either in one's home or elsewhere. It is about possession of guns in the NBA workplace, which will not be tolerated."

"It is not disputed that ... both Mr. Arenas and Mr. Crittenton brought guns to the locker room and displayed them to one another in a continuation of a dispute."

Stern claims both players have expressed remorse, and added that both of the men "have volunteered to engage in community service in order to turn the lessons they have learned into an educational message for others."

It's time to give Javaris Crittenton his due.

The Washington Wizards guard has been largely overlooked as the other dude in the gun-toting, locker room standoff with the team's star, Gilbert Arenas.

But let's not forget that it was Crittenton who:

  1. Allegedly threatened to shoot Arenas in his surgically repaired knee after he lost money to him at cards, sparking an infamous prank gone awry
  2. Happened to be strapped himself, pulling his piece after Arenas laid four firearms out in the locker room and left a note telling him to "Pick 1"

For his role in this ridiculousness, Javaris Crittenton pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor weapons violation. Arenas pleaded guilty to a felony gun charge.

STRAPPED: Javaris Crittenton will no longer be packing heat.

Crittenton pleaded guilty Monday to possession of an unregistered firearm. The D.A. will drop a charge of attempted carrying a pistol without a license.

The player apologized for what he called an “embarrassment” before being sentenced to a year of unsupervised probation for the misdemeanor.

Senior Judge Bruce Beaudin ordered Crittenton to do outreach work with young people in the Washington, D.C. He was also fined a total of $1,250.

Crittenton’s lawyer, Peter H. White, says Crittenton brought a legally owned, unloaded handgun to D.C. “only because he legitimately feared for his life.”

Embattled, heat-packing NBA star Gilbert Arenas has entered a plea of guilty to one felony count of carrying an unlicensed firearm in the District of Columbia.

He has yet to be sentenced, and could still end up doing time for having the illegal gun. It is estimated that a low-end sentence would carry under six months.

Arenas' plea came after an investigation into a locker room standoff he had with teammate Javaris Crittenton in December and became a huge sports scandal.

The Washington Wizards player has to turn in his passport and is no longer allowed to possess any firearms. An investigation into Crittenton remains open.

During court proceedings this afternoon, new details of the now-infamous locker room standoff, which must be read to be believed, have also been revealed.

It all went down December 19, when Arenas and Crittenton became "involved in a verbal exchange after a card game," during which Arenas - who claims it was just a joke - and the teammate made "mutual threats to shoot one another."

Two days later, Arenas - who had four guns at the Verizon Center - "placed them on the chair of a teammate with a note stating, reportedly in jest, "PICK 1.'"

When Javaris Crittenton arrived, Arenas reportedly stated, "You said you were going to shoot me, so I thought you would like some firepower. Pick One."

Ken Wainstein, a lawyer for Arenas, said afterward that Gilbert "accepted full responsibility for his actions, acknowledged that those actions were wrong and against the law, and has apologized to all who have been affected by his conduct."

He is due back in court on March 26.

Arenas is prohibited, as are all NBA players, from bringing firearms into the arena, and the team could be looking to void his $111 million contract as a result.

This felony conviction definitely gives them more ammo. Pun intended.

Embattled, gun-toting NBA star Gilbert Arenas was charged with felony possession of a firearm Thursday, according to Washington, D.C., authorities said.

The Washington Wizards player is now formally accused of a serious crime - one that carries a maximum of five years in jail, the Washington Post reports.

The charge was announced Thursday afternoon by the U.S. Attorney's office for the District of Columbia after weeks of investigating Arenas' conduct.

Arenas' attorney and prosecutors were negotiating a plea deal today and it was not immediately clear whether the filing of charges was a part of that.

Most likely, Arenas would plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge and steer clear of jail. Court officials are prepared to have Arenas in court on Friday.

Gilbert Arenas is in hot water over packing heat in the locker room.

The U.S. Attorney's office alleges that on December 21, Arenas "did carry, openly and concealed on or about his person, in a place other than his dwelling place, place of business or on other land possessed by him, a pistol, without license."

That pretty much sums it up. He supposedly had guns with him at the Wizards' facility and got into a heated standoff with teammate Javaris Crittenton.

The two got into an argument after a card game and Crittenton allegedly said he should shoot Arenas in his surgically repaired left knee, sources said.

Days later, Arenas, a notorious practical joker, reportedly placed the guns on a chair next to Crittenton's locker with a note instructing him to "pick one."

More details as the story develops ...

Gilbert Arenas has been spending his indefinite suspension from the NBA on the phone with his lawyer, who has supposedly been bargaining for a plea deal.

Arenas would supposedly admit guilt to misdemeanor gun charges under the terms of the agreement. No deal had been made as of yesterday afternoon.

If the negotiations don't totally fall apart, they would likely keep Arenas out of prison, according to the Washington Post, and possibly give him probation.

He could also receive community service, and/or a fine.

Whatever happens with the legal system, it isn't looking very good for Gilbert Arenas to suit up with the Washington Wizards right now or anytime soon. Or at all.

GM Ernie Grunfeld supposedly texted Arenas after his "joke" gun drawing on Javaris Crittenton went completely awry to let him know that was in violation of NBA rules.

It could also lead to his $111 million contract being voided. Yikes. The team has supposedly been very cooperative with police investigating the star player.

At least with his copious free time Agent Zero could be cleaning out all the firearms he supposedly owns. Dude supposedly has hundreds of guns. No joke!
