The drama between NBA player Gilbert Arenas and his ex-girlfriend Laura Govan now have a third party involved: the moving company that moved their furniture to California. According to thewashingtonpost.com, in a lawsuit filed this month, JK Moving and Storage sued both Arenas and Govan for $26,172.62 in unpaid moving fees. According to the suit, the company says it got caught in the crossfire between the basketball player and his ex.
For those of you who don’t remember, back in December, Arenas went AWOL, when he abruptly left the couple’s Great Falls home after he was traded to Orlando, leaving a pregnant Govan, and their three young children behind. Then Govan allegedly robbed Arena’s vacant home, taking clothes, furniture and, reportedly, even his famous shark tank. Then Laura served Arenas child support papers during half time of a Magic vs. Heat game.
The suit claims Govan, who is pregnant with the couple’s fourth child, contacted the moving company in January and said the family was planning to build their dream house in California. After “conferring” with Arenas and his financial manager, Lester Knispel, according to the court filing, she put a deposit on Arenas’s American Express card, then the $24K charge when the moving truck reached the West Coast.
Two weeks later Arenas’ manager, Paisley Benaza, wrote the moving company claiming fraud and theft; then American Express reversed the payment — leaving JK with the unpaid bill.
Reps for JK Moving did not respond to a request for comment; Govan’s rep would only say that the baby is due in June but did not address questions about the lawsuit.
This is some shady ISH!!
