Donald Sterling Sued By Alleged Mistress Claiming Mistreatment And Racism
It’s not getting better for soon-to-be-former LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
A woman who said she worked for Donald Sterling filed a lawsuit Monday alleging that the embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner fired her after she refused to have sex with him and repeatedly made racist and sexist remarks in her presence.
Maiko Maya King said that she was subjected to a “steady stream of racially and sexually offensive comments” by Sterling and that she was in a “romantic relationship” with him from 2005 until 2011, according to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court…
“He supported her financially and she worked for him and his foundation,” the lawsuit said.
Attorney Bobby Samini, who is representing Sterling, said in an email Monday night that the allegations are “completely baseless.”
“Anyone objectively reviewing Ms. King’s claims will have no doubt that they are without merit,” Samini said.
King said Sterling made racist remarks about her former husband, who is African American and the father of her two children.
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?”
