A second Black mistress of billionaire Donald Sterling has filed a lawsuit against the former Los Angeles Clippers owner, claiming that he subjected her to even worse racial and sexual outbursts than what he said to his most famous side chick, V. Stiviano.
V. Stiviano, of course, is the woman who caused Sterling’s NBA empire to come crumbing down after she secretly (and illegally) taped his racist stream of consciousness about Black people and released it to popular entertainment blog TMZ.
Maiko Maya King, 40, had a romantic relationship with Sterling between 2005 and 2011 and was later fired as his assistant when she rejected “a stream of racist and sexist taunts,” TMZ.com reported.
She also claims Sterling said the following, which, incredibly, is even worse than what Sterling said to his first mistress, if you can believe that:
“How could you be married to a Black man?” Sterling allegedly asked her in reference to her former African-American husband.
“Why would you bring Black people into the world?” the 80-year-old billionaire allegedly asked her, referring to her kids with her ex.
Sterling told the woman that “Black people do not take care of their children. All they do is sit home and smoke dope,” TMZ said.
“I want to take you out of the Black world and put you into the White world,” he purportedly told her..
When they had spats, Sterling reportedly told her to “move back to the ghetto with a Black man.”
In addition to being a rabid racist and incorrigible sexist, Sterling was also a pervert and pedophile, according to King’s ex-husband.
“I don’t like the man. She told me all the racist things he said, but he had billions and I was just a stunt man. He broke up my marriage,” King’s ex-husband Wayne King, 49, told the Daily News Monday. King he and Maiko divorced in 2009.
“I went to two Clippers games, but the whole situation was just ugly,” Wayne King continued. “He tried to get my youngest daughter to give him kisses, and then he would turn his face to get it on the lips. I told him I didn’t like that, and he said, ‘But I just love her.’”
King also purports that Sterling complained that he was bored sexually with his other assistant, V. Stiviano. He offered King bonuses if she could help him sexually, such as tell of her past conquests in order to get him aroused.
Because of the racist comments, Sterling and King broke up in 2011, the suit states. But when King’s father died in 2013 she returned to work for Sterling knowing V. Stiviano was his girlfriend now.
King said she accompanied him to doctor appointments, made sure he took his medications on time, took walks with him and accompanied him to business meetings.
The suit states that contrary to his agreement to pay her $10,000 a month, “Sterling dangled money only if she would have sex with him” and told her he was “bored with V.”
She also alleges that he would humiliate her in public by groping her, and relates multiple other incidents of alleged sexual harassment.
Sterling “created an intimidating oppressive, hostile and offensive work environment based upon sex,” the complaint states.
King, who is represented by high-profile attorney Gloria Allred, alleges discrimination, retaliation and “intentional infliction of emotional distress” and demands a jury trial.
Sterling’s attorney, Bobby Samini, said the suit was “baseless and ridiculous.” He added: “She was never employed by Donald Sterling. Her claim was obviously prompted by opportunistic motives.”
The lawsuit comes after Sterling was banned for life and fined $2.5 million by the NBA for publicized racist remarks. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver worked to oust him as owner of the team until his wife, Shelly Sterling, concluded a deal last week to sell it to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. The $2 billion deal still needs to be approved by NBA owners.
