This happens a lot more often than you think.
A rich married man starts doing things online that he shouldn’t, gets catfished and then pays the person off not to talk.
But, something went horribly wrong with Ray Allen’s arrangement according to ESPN.
Retired NBA star Ray Allen believes he is a victim of “catfishing,” and has asked a court to throw out a case where he is accused of stalking someone he met online.
Allen says Bryant Coleman “pretended to be a number of attractive women interested in” him. In documents filed Tuesday, Allen acknowledges he communicated with who he thought were those women and that he eventually entered into an agreement with Coleman to not disclose details of those conversations.
Allen says that agreement was violated.
TMZ has more details.
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.
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.
Coleman says that Allen and hi were in a gay relationship.
The truth, according to Coleman, is that Allen offered up info — along with pictures and videos — knowing full well that Coleman is a man. He says their relationship goes back several years.
“[Ray’s] account of our relationship is false,” Coleman says in a statement to TMZ Sports.
“Ray knows how I look, he knows how my voice sounds, he knows how I think, and most importantly, he knows my heart.”
“However, because of confidentially considerations, I am not in a position to provide a more detailed response to Mr. Allen’s false and salacious claims. I will rely on the courts to protect me against Mr. Allen’s violent threats and false accusations.”
We know what type of DMs Allen use to do online, because accidentally tweeted one once and it is considered the greatest accidental tweet of all time.
