Gilbert Arenas posted a lengthy message via Instagram on Wednesday night slamming the mother of his children, Laura Govan.
In efforts to defend himself against rumors that he is a deadbeat dad, the former NBA player dished on everything he pays for, but also slammed Govan along the way.
“I always read about what kind of dad I am but I’ve never posted about it so who’s telling yall??let me guess the mother RIGHT im a Deadbeat??…well here y’all go,” he wrote. “I get my kids every #weds #everyotherweekend #jointcustody #nonannyAllme #cook #nomaid…I set up their college funds..each child has over 300k towards college..also they have their own personal bank accounts,I put 10k each bday.”
He continued, “I get 20k a month for person spending I put 2k in each account like clockwork EVERY MONTH leaving me with 12k…I also pay for their private schooling,meals,clothes,shoes..house cars..I personally cover every aspect of my kids life.”
“NOW the victim…she gets 20k a month but if u read what I do then ask urself what does she do with 20k,” Arenas said about Laura. “She has to feed the kids at home, pay for gas to get them to school and pay her phone bill andddddddd that’s it….that’s all she’s responsible for in our kids lives.”
The athlete continued to diss Govan stating that “she gets 20k to buy her self clothes for #IG for u f*cks to hit the like button…..I wasn’t gonna leave my kids future in her hands…she has 2 million dollar closet but my kids look like their bums half the damn time they get posted and I’m the #Deadbeat….if I’m a #deadbeat and a bad father WHAT the f*ck are the rest of the fathers called??? Yall can call me what u want but i bet yall want me as ur baby daddy smdh.”
Govan has yet to respond to the allegations.
