“Basketball Wives LA” star Gloria Govan took to Instagram after her sister, Laura, implied Gloria had relations with her ex-husband, retired pro basketball player Gilbert Arenas, while they were together. She said Gloria’s flirtation with Arenas is why she hooked her up with Memphis Grizzlies star Matt Barnes. Gloria, however, said it was all a lie and clapped back on her sister through an Instagram post.
“So we’re spreading LIES about family on social media now?” the reality star wrote in a now-deleted post. “Not sure how or why any of the unsolicited malicious lies started.”
Like Gloria, Arenas denied he had any type of physical relationship. She addressed his denial in her own message, saying, “I have never slept with Gil!”
When it comes down to it, Gloria was most offended that her sister talked about their problems in a public manner. “I know we’ve had our disagreements, our fights, our arguments. But we’re sisters. We’re family. That’s what we do. BUT this? Dragging not only me but our entire family into the mud as if we weren’t raised under the same roof by the same parents. That’s new to me?!?”
Gloria then mentioned their young nieces and nephews had Instagram accounts and could see the accusations Laura was throwing in her sister’s direction. “Is this how you want to represent not only yourself but our family? If that’s the case that’s [all] you. I want no part in it.”
Gloria finished her post by saying she was still open to communication with her sister. “If you want to talk I’m here,” she wrote.
