Denver Nuggets player Chris 'Birdman' Andersen is the victim of scorned female fan, and that's why investigators from the Internet Crimes Against Children squad searched his Colorado home, according to Andersen's lawyer.

Colin Bresee, an attorney for Andersen, put out a statement today with their explanation that reads in part:

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. After leaving Colorado, she became upset at his lack of interest. In 2012, she threatened to retaliate if he did not provide financial remuneration.

Andersen has not been charged with a crime or arrested.
