Laura Govan's Shattered Married Life: Accused Her Own Sister of Sleeping With Ex-Husband

Complications are one thing that happens in every relationship. Even if the couple seems to be perfect for each other, there are complications eventually but in Laura Govan’s life, the term ‘complications’ seems to be just not enough to explain everything.

Laura Govan, now single, was in a relationship with the former basketball player Gilbert Arenas from 2002. Their relationship was not a what we call; an ordinary relationship. Their relationship never turned into a husband’s and wife’s relationship as they never got married but were steady enough to have four kids together.

However, their relationship jumped off the cliff in late 2014, when Gilbert apprised Laura to vacate the home. It didn’t end here as the split took its toll on both. After she was exiled from their L.A mansion, she even sued Gilbert claiming he took her $1 million dollars worth engagement ring and sold without her accord.   After her allegations, she wanted part of Arenas' property that includes many marijuana clinics that were owned by Gilbert.

The strange thing is that the couples were preparing for their marriage in 2012, the year Gilbert took down his case in which he sued Laura and the producer of Basketball Wives L.A after she appeared in it, to block her role and after doing the same course of breakup and reunion, he turned down the lawsuit because it traded on his fame

News also came that Laura was accusing Gilbert of sleeping with her family members and also said that Gilbert didn’t even know the ages of his kids. It was later made clear that by her family member, she meant her sister Gloria Govan.  This time, the allegations were pretty serious because it was her own sister that she was pointing towards.  She claimed that her sister was having an affair with her husband like a boyfriend and that she got back her Gloria and Matt Barnes while they were about to separate in an attempt to save her relationship with Gilbert. She said,

"That is true. that’s what I did. It was something I was going through and we were younger…There was a lot of f*ckery going on in the relationship…There’s a lot of shit that I went through, with my sister and dealing with this situation. When I hooked them up — she was a thorn in my ass when I was in a relationship with Gilbert...It was a lot."

So, as far as we know, Laura is a single woman, who is ready to mingle as she said in an interview with the TMZ Sports in June of 2015. She also says that she is in touch with Gilbert as he is the father of her four kids Aloni Arenas, Hailey Arenas, Alijah Arenas and Izela Arenas.

The Weight Loss:

If you notice, Laura is a lot maintained and toned than her previous years. Well, she has been maintaining her weight for quite a while now as we no longer see the healthy Basketball Wives: L.A star who weighed about 225 pounds because she knew she had to get into shape again and that is when she began her weight loss program.

However, being a mom of four kids, it was a tough thing to manage time for workout but Voila!! She did it.
