Heat Fan Who Gave Joakim Noah the Finger Was Once Accused of Killing Her Husband

Whether it was last night or at some point today, everyone has likely seen this horrid lady from last Wednesday’s Heat/Bulls game.

This afternoon she has a name and an, um, interesting back story.

From NY Mag:

The woman has since been identified as Filomena “Phyllis” Tobias, the widow (after one year of marriage) of hedge-fund millionaire and CNBC personality Seth Tobias, whose sudden death was covered in-depth by Stephen Rodrick for New York Magazine in 2008. Tobias’s brothers, in a fight for his $25 million estate, accused Filomena of having “lured her husband to his death by drugging him and enticing him with sex with a male prostitute,” but she was ultimately cleared. (There were also an Internet psychic and Ambien involved.)

“Seth and Phyllis’s relationship was insane, even in the early days. Phyllis blasted Seth about his coke habit, but they both were heavy drinkers, especially of Champagne,” Rodrick wrote. “Seth questioned Phyllis’s emotional stability. They each accused one another of infidelity. It went back and forth like that.”

“She’s embarrassed, but she is being a good sport,” Filomena’s daughter told the Sun-Sentinel this morning of her mother’s latest claim to infamy. “She was having fun just like any other fan. All she has to say is that people need to get a life.”

“I have to say,” she added, “she still looks really hot.”

She’s being a good sport??? She was having fun just like any other fan????

Suspicion of murder aside, Filomena and her daughter both sound like real prizes.

You can’t see Filomena actually doing anything in this video (other than high-fiving people after doing that to Noah), but you can catch the tail end of the jerk in white polo yelling at Taj Gibson in this video.

    careful she might lure and then kill you

    This broad is classless. These are not fans, these are unstable individuals taking things too far. She should be fined & banned for misconduct. I’d like to see her do that to someone that is not under contract to ignore pompous narcissistic asses. She’s trash at best.

    Get over it, she’s at a sporting event. its not like Noah got kicked out for being a choir boy. oh, and while we’re at it, the stuff flying out of Gibson’s mouth weren’t far off from what she did.

    In case you didn’t know; this is a sporting event you ignorant zap. They got ejected for cussing out the ref. She’s just enjoying the sport and sticking with her team. Calm down.

    Well let’s see if I can communicate with you without the same the name calling shall we…
    If enjoying a game as “you” call it involves behaving as poorly as this person did, every fan would be removed from the arena lol!!! Obviously, some people don’t get out much.
