It's a good thing Donald Sterling isn't going to be associated with the NBA for much longer. Because according to The Hollywood Reporter, the owner of the Clippers is about to face even more trouble with relation to some racist and sexist remarks that he allegedly made to one of his former lovers/employees.
Late yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter discovered that a woman by the name of Maiko Maya King just filed a lawsuit against Sterling. King claims that she was involved in a romantic relationship with Sterling from 2005 through 2011 and that, during their relationship, he directed quite a few racist remarks in her direction. In the lawsuit, King—who was married to an African-American man while she was involved with Sterling—says that Sterling often asked her questions like, "How could you be married to a black man?" She also alleges that Sterling told her that he wanted to take her "out of the black world" and put her "into the white world."
Despite all of this, King admits that she agreed to serve as Sterling's personal assistant and caretaker in 2013, two years after their personal relationship ended. She says that she made $10,000 a month to work for Sterling and was also promised a $100,000 bonus at the end of the year. But she claims that Sterling sexually harassed her while she worked for him and "dangled money only if she would have sex with him." So according to her, her professional relationship with Sterling ended on May 7, 2014.
King is suing Sterling for an undisclosed amount of money as a result of pain and mental suffering and extreme mental anguish. The Hollywood Reporter attempted to seek a comment from Sterling's camp but his lawyer declined to speak about King's lawsuit.
