Deadspin.com caught up with NBA star Gilbert Arenas to hear his side of the story regarding claims of him being a “Dead Beat Dad” from his fiance Laura Govan.
After recently getting served with child-support papers at halftime of a Magic/Wizards game, Gilbert Arenas has decided to set the record straight in this exclusive interview.
Here is short snippet on how Gilbert Arenas responded to those claims during an interview with Deadspin.com.
The notion that Ms. Govan’s been financially frozen out.
“She’s like that bum on the street asking for money, but if you follow that bum home, you discover he’s got five cars and a mansion. She gets 20 grand a month. She got $8,000 allowance. We both did. … You’re pretending your living a bad life, but the facts really are: you get 20 grand a month and you live in a three-bedroom townhouse in San Ramon, Calif.”
• On being painted as a deadbeat dad.
“All I hear is, ‘I left the kids.’ She won’t let the kids see me. All I hear is, ‘Gilbert took everything.’ Sure I did. She took a SL600. She took the Range Rover, which I don’t mind because she has to drive the kids around.
Oh, all my furniture and all my clothes, about $4 million worth of stuff? Gone. And she says she’s living in some cheap hotel? Now, I don’t know how all of that is going to fit into the LA Quinta Inn — unless you bought the damn hotel.”
“Sure, I’m a deadbeat daddy. I get it. I’m the best daddy in the world until I didn’t want to be with you. And then I’m a deadbeat daddy. I think she did this the last time we broke up.”
“Look, you have your lawyer. I have my lawyer. Let’s do it that way.”
