In lawsuit, Donald Sterling accused of racism by second ex-lover
A former employee and ex-lover of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has come forward with accusations of racism against the mogul.
In her lawsuit, Maiko Maya King claims the Clippers owner fired her after she rejected “a stream of racist and sexist taunts.”
King claims in her new lawsuit — she was in a romantic relationship with Sterling between 2005 and 2011. King claims during their relationship Sterling made comments about her former African-American husband, asking her “How could you be married to a black man?” King says she had kids with her ex and Sterling asked, “Why would you bring black people into the world?”
King goes on, saying Sterling told her, “I want to take you out of the black world and put you into the white world.” And she says, when they would fight he would tell her, “move back to the ghetto with a black man.”
King says she started working for Sterling as his personal assistant and caretaker two years after they broke up. She claims that during her employment, Sterling said he was bored sexually with V. Stiviano, his former mistress who leaked the taped conversation of him making racist statements last month, and offered her bonuses if she could “help.”
She says when she complained about his racist remarks, he fired her.
Thoughts on this second lawsuit?
Will it put even more pressure on the NBA to force Sterling to sell his team?
