Ray Allen has found himself in the news but not for reasons related to his former sport of basketball. The retired NBA star found himself embroiled in a sexting scandal with a man who catfished Allen by pretending to be several women online.
TMZ Sports reports:
It’s all in legal docs obtained by TMZ Sports … the ex-NBA superstar claims he met these “women” in “various online forums” and communicated with them … sometimes sharing “private information.”
Ray claims he eventually figured out he was being catfished and ended the relationships — but the man behind the rouse became obsessed and began posting items on social media about Ray and his family.
In the docs, Allen claims the man would physically go to Ray’s wife’s restaurant in Orlando and post about Ray — tagging family members in the posts. Creepy stuff.
Ray says he got the guy to sign a confidentiality agreement in which he agreed to stop posting about Ray — but the guy violated the deal.
Things continued to escalate — and the man eventually filed for a restraining order against Ray claiming the NBA star was stalking him, which the court granted.
Ray is adamantly denying the stalking allegations and is now seeking a restraining order of his own.
Allen appeared in an Orlando, Florida court to address the matter by filing an emergency motion against the man, whose name is reported by ESPN to be Bryant Coleman.
