A man accusing former NBA star Ray Allen of online stalking is now alleging that the two-time champion is trying to "kill him."

TMZ reports Bryant Coleman stated Allen was allegedly with "two armed men" and believed the NBA star was possibly planning a "direct attack." Coleman also claimed he received a phone call from an individual threatening to strangle him, who he asserts was Allen.

According to, Coleman alleges that Allen "spied on him" and sent his "associates" to follow him. Coleman says he was approached by a man in a store in Oct. 2017 and was told by the man to "watch his back."

Allen responded to these claims declaring Coleman is "deranged" and obsessed with him, according to TMZ.

A judge granted a temporary restraining order filed by Coleman against Allen on Nov. 6, TMZ reports.

The drama began when Allen declared he was "catfished" by Coleman, who was pretending to be women he was communicating with online, according to an story.

"Catfishing" refers to an individual creating a fake online profile on social media to deceive another person.

Allen filed documents to prevent Coleman from potentially leaking his personal information online, according to

ESPN reported Allen and Coleman were threatening to give details on their conversations, but both made a deal to "keep everything private." However, Allen argued Coleman broke the terms of the deal because he was still harassing the All-Star and his family on social media.

According to, Allen claimed that Coleman would go to the 10-time All-Star's wife's restaurant in Orlando, Florida and created social media posts about Allen and would tag his family in the messages.
