The chronicles of Matthew Bellamy continue. His 15 minutes of fame, which should have ended shortly after he was escorted out of Jacobs Field this summer, were extended recently when the Heat reneged on their offer to fly him down to Miami for a game.

And now, he's back again.

Ohio.com reports that Bellamy will be at the game tonight, wearing his LeBron James Miami Heat jersey.

Only this time, he’ll have company. Bellamy said he and “about seven” others will wear Cavs hoodies into the arena until they arrive at their seats. At that time, they’ll take off the hoodies to unveil their James jerseys. Bellamy wouldn’t say where his seats are located, only that extra security will be near him.

Now the twist: Bellamy is rooting for the Cavs.

“I want the Cavs to win,” he said. “But I still respect LeBron. I respect the player he has become. I don’t like the fact he left Cleveland, but I’m not going to hate on him for wanting to go get his ring.”

Bellamy insists he isn’t doing any of this for the publicity — “I’m over that,” he said — but he and his friends want to show support for James.

We're not saying he's asking for trouble, but... nevermind, that's exactly what we're saying. In no way are we condoning violence, but there's a better than even chance that someone punches this guy tonight.
