CelebNSports247.com has heard that retired NBA star Ray Allen has been battling it out in courts with a man who claimed to be a woman, is claims Allen is stalking him.
Really dude? We doubt that very much!
Ray Allen has filed an emergency motion in Orange County, Florida, on Tuesday, one day after Bryant Coleman told the court he is being stalked by the 10-time All-Star and two-time NBA champion.
Allen said Bryant Coleman (who pretended to be a female fan) is the one who is stalking.
Ray motion filed reads:
“Coleman pretended to be a number of attractive women interested in Ray Allen. Ray believed he was speaking with these women and communicated with them.”
Attorney David Oscar Markus released a statement saying Allen took legal action in an effort to put an end to threats against him and his family.
The file also reads:
Allen was the victim “of an online scheme to extract money and embarrass him by someone who appears to be troubled.”
Coleman has continued to harass him and his family through several social-media accounts.
“He posted about Ray’s wife, Ray’s children, Ray’s dog, Ray’s homes, Ray’s wife’s restaurant, and numerous other personal items. Coleman not only posted about these things, he would actually post while physically located inside Ray’s wife’s restaurant in Orlando. And he would make sure they knew it, tagging Ray and his wife on those posts.”
Allen asked the court to stop Coleman from “cyber-stalking” him.
His attorney Markus said:
“Ray regrets ever engaging with this person online and is thankful they never met in person. This experience has negatively impacted Ray, and he hopes that others might use his mistake to learn the dangers of communicating online with strangers.”
Since retiring in 2014, Allen and his family have lived in the Miami area since.
