Miami Heat Middle Finger Lady Was Once Accused of Killing Her Husband, Is Michael Jordan's Neighbor

Turns out the woman caught shooting an angry bird at the Bulls' Joakim Noah as he walked to the locker room is a Palm Beach socialite named Filomena Tobias.

And she has quite the cray story.

Along with being a socialite, she's also the widow of hedge-funder Seth Tobias -- her fourth husband -- who was found dead in his own pool in 2007.

Filomena's internet psychic accuses her of being Tobias' murderer. Seth Tobias, meanwhile, allegedly had an affair with a male stripper named Tiger. Also, she is neighbors with Michael Jordan.

Tobias' daughter, Victoria Racanati, told Gossip Extra that she was humiliated over the news of her mother firing off a middle finger at Noah and having the internet implode in on itself over it.

"Why is everybody calling me about this?" Racanati says. "My mom's a Heat fan who got a little excited. What's the big deal?"

She's a woman with a sordid past who has been married and divorced several times and may or may not have killed her husband and dumped him in his pool, BUT THE ATTENTION THIS MIDDLE FINGER THING IS GETTING IS OUTRAGEOUS!

Filomena's dead husband was found face-first in the pool of his Jupiter mansion in 2007.

At the time, investigators found an Internet psychic she had hired for a $5-per-minute session. The fortune teller claims that the socialite confessed to her that she had murdered her husband.

Filomena was held as a person of interest until the death was ruled accidental.

Tobias' autopsy, meanwhile, revealed a high amount of drugs and alcohol in his body at the time of death.

And now, she's made infamous again by angrily shoving a belligerent middle finger at one of Heat fans' least favorite players.
