Bryn Forbes was arrested in early February, less than a week after getting waived by the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Forbes, 29, stands accused of assaulting his girlfriend Else Jean following a disagreement. His bond was eventually set at $2,500.
Although details regarding the altercation were initially scarce, they have slowly started to come out over the past several days.
This week a source close to Jean revealed what led up to the attack.
“She is a top … creator, and she recently launched her own Heartbreakers podcast,” the source told the Daily Mail. “She is launching her own clothing line.
“Bryn felt threatened by her success and wanted to be the only successful one in their relationship.”
The damage done to Jean in the attack was reportedly severe. She was allegedly “struck several times, causing injury and pain and required medical attention.”
According to the police report, the altercation occurred on Valentine’s Day. Compare that to how Forbes’ former teammate Karl-Anthony Towns and his girlfriend Jordyn Woods commemorated the occasion. Or Luka Doncic and his girlfriend. Or Kyle Kuzma and Winnie Harlow.
Forbes’ arraignment set for March 20.

Once upon a time Forbes was a decent backup sharpshooter in the NBA. That said, it’s hard to see how he gets another shot in the league after this. He was already barely hanging on by a thread.
So far this season Forbes averaged 3.6 points per game on 36.1 percent shooting from the field and 30.4 percent shooting from beyond the arc. Given the level of talent currently out there, it’s safe to say there won’t be a ton of demand for Forbes’ production going forward.
One way or another, hopefully everyone involved in this Forbes incident ultimately ends up getting the justice they deserve.
