The Gilbert Arenas breakup chronicles: Court filings from Laura Govan detail more claims of lavish spending... and she has a new lawyer
With Laura Govan making her split from Gilbert Arenas official with court papers (served to him courtside at an Orlando Magic game last week), a few more tantalizing details have emerged from what could be a very expensive breakup.
According to a copy of the child custody and support request the ex-Wizard's ex-fiancee filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Govan is seeking $1.3 million a year to support her three children by Arenas and their fourth due in June. In making her case, she describes some highlights of what was allegedly a very luxurious life they enjoyed together:
Arenas last weekend denied to the Associated Press his ex's claim that she's been cut off without funding since he left Washington, insisting that "she gets $20,000 a month." Govan's rep, in turn, reiterated to us this week that Govan has not received any support since November.
Another juicy detail from Govan's filings: She has apparently switched lawyers. Last month, we obtained confidential notes from her conversations with L.A. firm Trope and Trope, which the lawyers said were inadvertently made public in an unrelated court docket. Whoops. When it came time to file the support claim, Govan had the work done by another L.A. legal shop, Phillips Lerner & Lauzon, documents show. Govan's rep declined to comment about the switch
