(CHICAGO) The Miami Heat fan who gave Joakim Noah the finger during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals has been named as Filomena "Phyllis" Tobias.
After Wednesday night's incident, the photo quickly went viral:

Turns out, Tobias is the widow of former CNBC commentator and finance guru Seth Tobias and interesting details are coming to light about her life, including news of three previous husbands.
It seems Tobias' relationship with Seth was rocky, with one organization reporting police were called to the house because Filomena liked to hit him.
The same story implies that she may have been involved in Seth's death.
Now, Tobias is telling fans trolling her actions to "get a life."
Tobias' daughter Victoria Racanati told the Sun-Sentinel, "she's embarrassed, but she's being a good sport. She was having fun just like any other fan. All she has to say is that people need to get a life."
Racanati said the family are Heat season ticket holders and attend every game.
