Donald Sterling racially abused and sexually harassed ex-lover, lawsuit says

Published Add your comment

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling certainly loves a legal battle, and now he has even more to content with, as a former lover hit him with another lawsuit Tuesday, according to reports.

A $2 billion payday will be arriving very soon for the disgraced when he eventually sells his Clippers, and his family saying that he's losing the plot, now is the best time to get money from him before he loses it completely.

After the way everything began, with Sterling making racist comments in a private conversation with a lady friend, it's not surprising that he is now been subjected to a racial discrimination lawsuit from another lady friend.

Maiko Maya King is also alleging him of sexual harassment, and it's said that the two had a romantic relationship from 2005 until 2011 whilst she'd worked under him.

The lawsuit alleges that Sterling said many offensive comments to her during their time working together.

These include "How could you be married to a black man?" and "Why would you bring black people into the world?"

Other comments include, "I want to take you out of the black world and put you into the white world." When they would squabble, he'd tell her to "move back to the ghetto with a black man," she says.
