Beige rage has officially returned as Matt Barnes has gone viral for a slobbery, spitty confrontation with his fiancée’s ex.
Barnes is currently one of the top podcasters with his Showtime-backed All The Smoke podcast with Stephen Jackson, but many are unaware of how historically accurate the podcast title is. Barnes has never been one to run from any smoke or duck any confrontations. Take for example this weekend when showed that even though he’s more mature and relaxed, he can still run up the chimney when provoked.
Matt Barnes Spits On Fiancée’s Ex During 49er’s Game– Files Restraining Order After Confrontation
According to TMZ, Matt Barnes had to remind his fiancée’s ex David Patterson Jr. exactly why he gave his podcast that punny name. On Wednesday footage surfaced of Barnes embroiled in a heated confrontation with Patterson before the 49er’s playoff game at Levi Stadium. The two exchanged words before Barnes spit in the man’s face and a shoving match ensued.
Apparently, after the incident, Barnes filed a temporary civil restraining order in Los Angeles that revealed more details. The ex-NBA player claims he wasn’t the aggressor in the situation and had previously been threatened by Patterson. In the court documents obtained by The Blast, Barnes says Patterson Jr. “hunted me down and aggressively confronted me.” He also shared that his fianceé Anansa Sims has a restraining order against Patterson Jr. as well for the “protection of their three minor children.”
He said the 37-year-old yelled profanities and threats at him, called him names and incited the crowd around them “into a frenzy by yelling out my full name repeatedly.”
Barnes added that Patterson Jr. eventually “shoved me, and I was forced to push him off of me.”
He continued, “I did not want the altercation to physically escalate further, and out of frustration with him seeking me out and his unrelenting repeated harassment I spit in his direction in disgust.”
Perhaps the most shocking revelation is Barnes stating that Patterson threatened to shoot him with a gun after allegedly been harassing him nonstop. Barnes is alleging that the ex is using other people as a “conduit for his harassment” including having his fiancee, Melisa Andino, “file a sham Request for civil harassment restraining order against me only to dismiss the petition voluntarily at the hearing.”
The restraining order says the center of the issue is Patterson’s jealousy over Matt’s relationship with Sims. If the restraining order is issued, Patterson Jr. will not be allowed within 100 yards of Barnes.
