Last night during the Magic vs. Heat game, Gilbert Arenas was served with child support and custody papers as he was leaving the court during halftime.
In the petition, Laura Govan is seeking $109,000 in monthly support payments from Arenas and $1.3 million annually.
This isn’t the first time Laura has used this strategy but it is the first time she’s actually succeeded. A few years back while Gilbert was still with the Wizards and he and Laura were going through a break up, she attempted to have him served while the Wizards were playing the Lakers in Los Angeles.
That time, the Wizards caught wind of the plot and protected Gil by having him stay at the team hotel and claim to be sick for the game that night. This time however, he wasn’t so lucky.
I’m sure this is only the beginning. The hearing on the case has been set for March 8 in Los Angeles.
