Ex-NBA star gets into the details of his financial support

There's no end in sight for the war between Gilbert Arenas and Laura Govan.


The pair have been going at it since the demise of their 12-year relationship in 2014 and have made sure to include the public in on their drama, with a headline-making lawsuit and several stunts on social media. Things heated back up earlier this week when Arenas took to Instagram to address allegations of being a "deadbeat dad."




He made sure to crunch the numbers of his financial support, writing:  


"I always read about what kind of dad I am but I've never posted about it so who's telling yall?? let me guess the mother RIGHT im a Deadbeat??...well here yall go...I get my kids every #weds #everyotherweekend #jointcustody...I set up their college funds..each child has over 300k towards college..also they have their own personal bank accounts, I put 10k each bday...I get 20k a month for person spending I put 2k in each account like clockwork EVERY MONTH...I also pay for their private schooling, meals, clothes, cars..I personally cover every aspect of my kids life...NOW the victim...she gets 20k a month but if u read what I do then ask urself what she do with 20k...she has to feed the kids at home, pay for gas to get them to school and her phone bill andddddddd that's it....that's all she's responsible for in our kids lives....she gets 20k to buy her self clothes for #IG for u fucks to hit the like button.....I wasn't gonna leave my kids future in her hands...2 million dollar closet but my kids look like their bums half the damn time they get posted and I'm the #Deadbeat....if I'm a #deadbeat and a bad father WHAT the fuck are the rest of the fathers called???"


Arenas and Govan have four children together. They were once engaged, but never followed through with the marriage.
