Donald Sterling accused of racism, sexism in new lawsuit

Maiko Maya King claims she both had a romantic relationship with Donald Sterling from 2005 to 2011 and also worked for his foundation.

But, in a new lawsuit, she says he fired her after she refused to have sex with him. Oh, there are other claims, too.

Robert J. Lopez of the Los Angeles Times:

The lawsuit alleges that Sterling asked King, “How could you be married to a black man?” and referenced her children by saying, “Why would you bring black people into the world?”

King says that Sterling told her in December 2013 that he needed her to be his personal assistant and caretaker.

King said Sterling had agreed to pay her $10,000 a month but “dangled money only if she would have sex with him.”

“He confided in her that he had difficulty having sexual relations and that he was bored with V.,” according to the lawsuit.

King also alleges Sterling made racist comments about Latinos. “Mexicans just do drive by shootings,” the lawsuit claims Sterling said.

It’s certainly possible this lawsuit – filed by attorney Gloria Allred – is an opportunistic attempt to exploit the unpopular Sterling. For what it’s worth, Sterlings’ attorney denied everything.

But it also wouldn’t be surprising if all King’s claims are true.

      Gloria Allred is the white female version of Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson.

    Man, once the cover is pulled off of you, you are exposed for all dirty activity. I guess Karma really does come back around.

      Plenty of losers can’t handle that. Hence the thumbs downs.

    tapes or it didn’t happen

    Total gold digger. I mean, the guy is clearly a racist, he makes racist remarks directly to you(allegedly) and you still sleep with him just for the money.

    Hard to say the woman doesn’t share some of the blame here, she knew what she was getting into.

    Gloria Allred. Enough said about that egotistical, headlline hunting, blood sucking pariah because just mentioning her name tells us all everything we need to know.

    We already know he’s racist & cheats on his wife with broke bit*hes in exchange for money. So what’s new? You obviously took the money and slept with him so take a hike

    So basically, she was a highly paid prostitute, that only has a problem with the arrangement now that her client is no longer booking appointments

    • dexterismyhero - Jun 3, 2014 at 3:36 PM

      And hopefully the IRS starts looking at her for the taxes on the money she got.

    Okay this is just getting ridiculous.

    Hey Donnie, see you at service next Sunday, right?

    Spurs in 6

    Smells like BS

    Its open season on Sterling. If this happened in December, why did this suit wait until June? Oh, I forgot the buzzards are swarming.

    gold digger or not, this adds headache to Don’s life and strengthens NBA’s case against Don. Adam Silver… you are a genius. Does Don really want to go to court now? Because if he does, all his prostitutes will come out and testify against him.

    • eugenesaxe1 - Jun 3, 2014 at 10:03 PM

      No they won’t. No proof he did anything wrong here, just her word. And Silver doesn’t need any more help, he’s got this.

    I’m sure she won’t be the last gold digger trying to get paid, Sterling just got a 2 billion dollar check……

  16. sportsnut1197 - Jun 3, 2014 at 2:10 PM

    He has 2 billion reasons to care less. She will take 50 k and go away lol. Money buys power unfortunately.

    I guess they call this playing the money “card”??? I wonder how many are in this deck… Why wasn’t the suit filed before or was the money too good at the time???

    Only an ignorant racist would defend Sterling. You can read their comments on these blogs, or like me, you can ignore the stupid.
