Chris "Birdman" Andersen May Be a Victim of Extortion


“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.

Birdman apparently wasn’t interested and it sounds like he made the right call.

According to the statement, someone purporting to be the woman’s mother wrote in an email that ” ‘i (sic) want him to pay for everything on her Amazon wish list, 5K for her bedding stuff and her victoria secret wish list.”

Let’s hope this turns out to be the case. I’d rather Birdman be an eccentric weirdo than whatever we thought he was when this news first broke  yesterday. Andersen was “excused indefinitely” from the Nuggets yesterday.
