Former NBA star Gilbert Arenas is still collecting huge checks from the NBA. Throughout the latter part of his career we heard a lot about Gil’s life away from the game, especially his relationship with the mother of his four children, reality TV star Laura Govan.
Gilbert took to Instagram Wednesday night to explain that not only is he NOT the deadbeat dad he’s sometimes made out to be, he’s actually trying to make up for the lack of parenting skills. Gilbert served Laura with an eviction notice over Labor day weekend. He explained why he’s evicting his ex-fianceé:
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 yall go…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…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…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….she gets 20k to buy her self clothes for #IG for u fucks 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 fuck 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
On Thursday Gilbert added that he has a restraining order against Laura because he feels she will try to fabricate a domestic violence claim to get full custody of their children. That Laura is “Hollywood” and seeking attention, and that she sends blogs false in an effort to paint him as unfit.

That last post was likely in response to a rumor dropped on Baller Alert that claims Gilbert is the father of Lindsey Faulk’s new daughter. Faulk is the ex-wife of former NFL star Marshall Faulk.
