As the former NBA star prepares himself for sentencing, facing up to 15 years in prison, TMZ reports that there’s even more drama in the former NBA star’s life.
According to the report, his estranged wife Samantha Telfair called the police last week because she claimed she was being threatened by Telfair’s sister Octavia.
Law enforcement sources tell us … the LAPD responded to a call last week from Samantha Telfair, who claims Octavia Telfair called her roughly 52 times making various threats … including a threat to “Slice [her] face and kill [her] children.”
Samantha told cops Octavia was furious that Samantha took the stand earlier this month and told prosecutors she had seen Sebastian with multiple weapons, including the gas-operated submachine gun he was allegedly carrying when he was arrested in June 2017.
Sebastian — a former NBA prodigy who flamed out — was convicted in his gun possession case last week and now faces up to 15 years in prison when he’s sentenced in June.
Samantha lives in L.A. which is why the LAPD is involved. We’re told officers took a criminal threats report and the LAPD is now investigating.
We’re told Octavia is believed to live in New York — and sources tell us the NYPD is also involved in the investigation because Samantha filed an aggravated harassment report in New York as well.
Telfair is now looking at up to 15 years in jail, which Octavia seems to feel was due to his wife’s testimony.
In addition to contacting the LAPD, Samantha Telfair has filed a harassment charge with New York city authorities where Octavia is said to reside. Both departments are investigating her complaints.
