UPDATE: The beaches of Southern California was the hot topic over the weekend, after Alex von Furstenberg — the son of designer Diane von Furstenberg — hired a small plane to fly over the beaches with a sign that read, “Reggie Miller Stop Pursuing Married Women.” Alex was ticked off because Reggie was stalking his fiancee, Ali Kay.
According to TMZ, here’s what went down:
Reggie’s rep, Miller and Ali met at a Malibu supermarket back in March. Reggie says the two flirted and spent the rest of the day texting like crazy — each sending more than 50 texts to the other in a 6 hour span (we obtained Reggie’s phone records).
Reggie claims Ali — a clothing designer — even texted him 2 provocative photos of herself (above), which TMZ has obtained.
But according to Reggie, in April he had enough and took her out of his phone contact list. But Reggie says in May, Ali reconnected with him, wanting to know why he had closed the door. Reggie says the next day he got an angry call from Alex.
Reggie claims Alex then began a campaign of harassment — repeatedly calling Miller’s friends and even hiring a private investigator to tail Reggie. Alex says he escalated matters because Reggie continued to pursue his fiancee. Reggie says not only is that a lie … Reggie had to hire a lawyer to prepare a restraining order against Alex. Alex responded by hiring his own lawyer to prepare a counter restraining order, but neither document was ever filed with the court.
Over the July 4 weekend, we’re told there was a telephone summit in which Reggie, Alex and the lawyers supposedly buried the hatchet and it seemed everyone had moved on … that is, until the giant sign flew over the beach.
Reggie Miller doesn’t know how to take no for an answer. According to twitter.com, former Pacer great and current TNT network NBA announcer Reggie Miller started up a conversation with the fiancée of Alex von Furstenberg, a Malibu resident and surf shop owner locally. Reggie waited for her to leave the local Country Mart then followed her up the PCH begging for future encounters.
Alex says he confronted Reggie about trying to get with his fiancée when Reggie told him he had friends with guns and called the cops on Alex. Alex was in the process of getting a restraining order against Reggie but says he has since worked out the situation with Reggie and his lawyer.
According to Alex: “I was very upset about Reggie’s behavior towards my fiancée. I think people in Malibu share my views that being a famous basketball player should not provide some sort of shield against inappropriate behavior. Reggie sincerely apologized to me on a phone call with Ronald Richards, his attorney, and myself. I cannot comment further on the matter as I believe it has been resolved.”
Alex rented a plane to fly over Miller’s beach house with a banner reading “Reggie Miller Stop Pursuing Married Women!”
