Gilbert Arenas Files Lawsuit to Keep Laura Govan off Basketball Wives: LA
Unless you are Speedy Claxton, you should know that having your EX or Baby Mama on the VH1 reality show Basketball Wives isn’t going to be a good look for your reputation.
What ballers are doing now to prevent this is by filing lawsuit. It has been pretty effective, Gilbert Arenas is the latest to try to make a power move.
The former Wizards star filed a federal suit in Los Angeles Thursday to try to stop Laura Govan from trading on his fame with a role in the latest edition of the dishy VH1 reality series.
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.
Gilbert and Laura have been battling over any and everything for years, so this isn’t a surprised. She murdered his Sharks for goodness sakes allegedly.
Ballers be careful with who you have your babies by.
