Love: Gilbert Arenas Abandons Pregnant Fiance' and Their 3 Kids

After getting traded to the Orlando Magic, Gilbert apparently picked up and left with even saying goodbye. He left his mansion in VA and hit the road to Florida. Laura's rep (now she's repped by the same person as her "Basketball Wives" star sister Gloria Govan and Matt Barnes) says Gilbert has not spoken to Laura or the kids since Thanksgiving and has been avoiding doing so. And he has cut off all money to them. Even though Laura is several months along in her fourth pregnancy.

The Washington Post reports:

Govan, who is four months pregnant with their fourth child, "has not heard from Arenas the whole month of December," said publicist Laura Wright in an e-mailed statement. "Govan and the children feel like they have been abandoned."
Wright - who has worked for Govan's sister Gloria and her fiance, Los Angeles Lakers forward Matt Barnes - said that Govan was left at their Great Falls home "with no money to purchase food or Christmas gifts."
The breakup happened around Thanksgiving. Though he didn't reveal a relationship rift at the time, Arenas recently told reporters he had been staying with Wizards teammate Nick Young for about a month.

*But wait* There's more!  
After his first game with the Magic a few days ago, Gilbert made it very public that he was moving on from his old life in D.C.

He told The Post after his Dec. 20 debut with the Magic that he was so eager to move that he bought a same-day ticket to Florida the minute he'd heard about the trade: "I went to the airport and left. I didn't have a chance to say bye to anybody. I didn't even say bye to the kids." (But Arenas also said that Washington would remain "in my heart" because "that's where I raised my kids and have my family.")

*Sigh* We'll keep you posted.
