NBA Star Gilbert Arenas

Had a Change of Heart

About His Ex ... and His Lawsuit!

EXCLUSIVE

0428_laura_goven_gilbert_arenas_gettyJust months after getting engaged to his baby mama, NBA star Gilbert Arenas decided he wants to drop his lawsuit over her reality show "Basketball Wives: LA" -- but with one catch ... he can bring it back any time he sees fit.

If you recall ... the Grizzlies star filed a suit over the VH1 series -- which featured his then ex-girlfriend Laura Govan -- claiming the show and his ex had NO right to make money using his image without his permission.

Now the b-baller is changing his tune, asking the court to dismiss the suit -- coincidentally after his ex officially became his fiancée. But Arenas still wants to keep his right to bring it back whenever he wants, in case he feels exploited again ... or if ya know, the engagement goes south.

Shed Media -- the people behind "BB Wives" -- have fired back ... urging the court to dismiss the case permanently

A judge has yet to rule on the motions and Arenas has yet to rule on whether his fiancée can keep that title.

This is the same money grubbing ho that broke up Shaq's marriage. She looks like a tranny to me. I wonder which daughter their parents are most proud of, her or her sister that has a few illegitimate kids with that dirtbag Matt Barnes? I bet it's a toss up.

I can't understand I thought that Laura had affair with Mr. O'neal and that was his baby.The way his ex wife was acting when she first started the show always in her sister face so why would she let her come on the show knowing that they was waiting on anything to happen so they could sue basketball wives
