[T]he Miami Heat fan who decided to stick her middle finger right in Joakim Noah's face [in May has a] backstory [that's] just as ridiculous as you would expect it to be.
Her name is Filomena (sometimes Phyllis) Tobias, and she is the bird-flipper according to a quote her daughter gave to the Sun Sentinel:
The daughter said her mom did not want to comment.
Oh, but there's so much more! Tobias is best known as the drug addled woman who divorced three times before marrying hedge fund manager/CNBC analyst Seth Tobias, whom she was then accused of murdering by her internet psychic [who claimed she crushed up a bunch of Ambien and mixed it into pasta sauce intending to cause an overdose]. She also possibly met Seth Tobias on the sex-party circuit and may have once kidnapped a gay stripper named Tiger [who was allegedly having cocaine-fueled sex with her husband in exchange for money]. Whew! You get all that?
All of these sordid details came to light in a 2008 New York Magazine story about Seth Tobias's death and relationship with Filomena, which includes this excerpt of an instant-messaging chat between Filomena and Seth:
Joakim Noah should consider himself lucky to have escaped this woman's presence with his life.
