.ORLANDO, Fla. – Orlando guard Gilbert Arenas has been served with child support and custody papers as he was leaving the court during halftime of a Magic game.
A process server stopped Arenas as he walked off the court Thursday night against the Miami Heat. The court documents, obtained by The Associated Press, were a California petition filed by Laura Mendoza Govan. She identifies herself as his ex-girlfriend in the documents.
The petition seeks custody and child support for three children that Govan says Arenas fathered and has since “financially cut off.” She is also seeking support for another unborn child.
A hearing in the case has been set for March 8 in Los Angeles. Orlando plays at Sacramento on March 9.
Arenas and the Magic are playing at Washington Friday night.
