R.I.P. Mother Of NBA Player Gilbert Arenas Passes Away

- By Bossip Staff

Our condolences go out to Gilbert Arenas, who lost his mother earlier this month. Details on the flipside.

The Washington Post is reporting that the estranged mother of controversial NBA player Gilbert Arenas has passed away. Arenas did not find out his mother, Mary Francis Robinson, had passed away on March 13 until days later. Arenas was raised by his father, Gilbert Arenas Sr., and only met his mother once. Reports say Gilbert Arenas is distraught over the loss and has paid for the funeral.

Gil is having a really rough year — between this, his suspension and trouble with the law, we really feel for him.

Losing a parent has to be one of the hardest things — regardless of their estrangement, Arenas is probably really going through it.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to him during this difficult time.

    God bless her soul. We all only have one mother. Show her that you love her by working hard,graduating from college and cutting out foolish behavior.

    Wow. This is very sad. My condolences to him. However, an element of this story seems confusing; it seems odd to characterize him as being distraught if he only met his mother once.

    Are there missing pieces to this story?

    @Gimme
    It makes sense he’s probably distraught that he found out dayz later and you never know maybe he had intentions of building a brige with his mom-this is really sad news…
