*NBA star Matt Barnes is facing legal action for spitting on his current fiancee’s ex-husband at the San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys game on January 22.

This altercation between Barnes and David Patterson Jr. occurred after David reportedly threatened to shoot Matt, The Blast reports.

In a video that went viral, Barnes is seen spitting on Patterson, who has lawyered up for a potential court battle with Barnes. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Patterson is suing for battery, assault, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Patterson alleges that he was “wrongfully, maliciously, and violently assaulted, battered, threatened and injured” by Barnes.

Per The Blast report, Patterson says Barnes “intentionally spit” in his face with the “intent to harm and/or offend him.”  Patterson says he “continues to suffer from injury, emotional distress, pain and suffering, embarrassment, and humiliation.”

Patterson says the insult has caused him to suffer “mental and emotional pain, distress and discomfort, all to his detriment and damage in amounts not fully ascertained but within the jurisdiction of this court and subject to proof at the time of the trial.”

The court documents include text messages between Barnes and Patterson’s fiance Melisa Andino. According to The Blast, one alleged text message from Barnes states, “Melisa are your lips good for anything other than sucking d***? Control your man he’s losing it.”

Footage of the spitting altercation was published by TMZ. Days after the incident, Barnes alleged that Patterson was the aggressor. He filed for a temporary civil restraining order against Patterson, claiming Patterson “hunted me down and aggressively confronted me.”

“I did not want the altercation to physically escalate further, and out of frustration with him seeking me out and his unrelenting repeated harassment I spit in his direction in disgust,” Barnes reportedly explained in the court docs. 

Patterson is looking for unspecified damages in his case against Barnes
