If you haven’t done so already, please read my previous article about Chris Andersen, to get you up to speed on the current situation:
To clarify any possible confusion, to begin, Andersen has not been arrested nor charged with any crimes.
Chris, Birdman, Andersen claims that he is not guilty of any Internet crimes, specifically any involving children. Authorities in Colorado did, however, seize his property earlier last week, where Andersen’s lawyer later released a statement insisting that his client was being framed by a scorned woman.
Andersen’s lawyer explains:
“A female fan in 2010 mailed Mr. Andersen multiple letters and included several photos in which she was scantily clad.”
“Chris and this woman communicated with each other and in 2011, this woman, who represented herself as 21 years of age, flew to Colorado, showing her required identification. After leaving Colorado, she became upset at his lack of interest. In 2012, she threatened to retaliate if he did not provide financial remuneration. “
A follow-up e-mail from a woman, seemingly from the mother of the estranged woman, was sent to the NBA star.
“I want him to pay for everything on her Amazon wish list, 5K for her bedding stuff and her Victoria’s Secret wish list.”
The statement continues, “The media has been speculating that he’s a suspect and not a victim in a criminal investigation. Mr. Andersen has been fully cooperative with the authorities. The investigation is expected to take three weeks. We’re confident it will show that Chris did not engage in any criminal conduct.”
