Laura used to be a member of the Sacramento Kings’ public relations department back then. The relationship was described in a past post as a Stormy and Famous one. After all, they’ve broken up and regrouped multiple times in the past.

A break from a basketball game was when Laura presented custody papers to Gilbert. Then, Gilbert became angry and said he gives her 20,000 dollars at least once a month.

Earlier this decade, Arenas sued a TV show called Basketball Wives LA. Arenas claimed that the show used the stars’ likeness and falsely advertised them. Following the lawsuit, he dropped it.
