Gilbert Arenas Lives An Extravagant Lifestyle

Well, at least that's according to court documents submitted by his fiancee, Laura Govan, in their ongoing battle for custody for his children. Those documents were obtained by the Washington Post, and while the details are no laughing matter, since kids are involved, the whole thing is still kind of amusing.

There's a lot about how Arenas spent his money, based on her understanding of the household finances: "he states he makes 1.5 million per month," read the notes. Arenas lavished plenty on their Great Falls home, dropping $100,000 on landscaping, $5,000 a month for housekeepers, $675 "per car" washing, and $1 million for his backyard pool and grotto. His sharks are expensive: $5,000 a month to feed them and $1,500 for a keeper to drive from Columbus to take care of them.

He was extravagant when it came to toys for the children -- ages 5, 4 and 2 -- buying a $60,000 train set and an $8,000 toy Mercedes-Benz electric car, and dropping between $30,000 and $40,000 during a shopping spree at FAO Schwartz.

Arenas' lawyer said the documents contained "numerous inaccuracies," but wouldn't go further. Maybe that's why Govan is rumored to have stolen the sharks
