Gilbert Arenas Sues Lauren Govan For Her Appearance on Basketball Wives

If following Gilbert Arenas on twitter didn’t add entertain you enough, Gil is now taking the same role as Dwight Howard and Chris Bosh to make sure that his wife doesn’t share their personal life with the world. Lauren’s sister Gloria, fiance to Lakers Matt Barnes, has already started filming for the LA Basketball Wives and Arenas has stepped in.

A suit was filed on Thursday in Los Angeles federal court by Arenas:

The suit accuses Govan and production company Shed Media US of trademark infringement, false advertising and misappropriation of the star’s likeness, among other claims.

“The presence of the defendant Govan and the title of the show is an obvious reference” to the NBA star, of the Orlando Magic, his lawyers wrote. As marketed, the show is “likely to mislead or confuse consumers that defendant Govan is either married to Plaintiff and/or has special insight into Plaintiff’s current life,” the suit states

This is one of the most known disfunctional relationships that is public in the NBA. As Lauren just birthed the 4th child in the relationship by Arenas, it’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out.
