Ex-lover/employee Maiko Maya King suing Donald Sterling

Maiko Maya King

Maiko Maya King, an ex-employee and lover/girlfriend of Donald Sterling, is suing her former boss claiming that he fired her after she rejected his racist and sexist taunts.

Despite being married with two children when she met Sterling in 2005, King supposedly was in a romantic relationship with the longtime Clippers owner from 2005-2011. Sterling supported her financially as she worked for his foundation. Two years after they broke up, she began working for Sterling as a personal assistant before she says she was fired.

King alleges that Sterling made multiple racist comments to her, which led her to end their relationship. Here’s a sampling of those alleged remarks:

– “How could you be married to a black man?”

– “Why would you bring black people into the world?”

– “I want to take you out of the black world and put you into the white world”; when they would fight he told her to “move back to the ghetto with a black man.”

– “Black people do not take care of their children. All they do is sit at home and smoke dope.”

– “Mexicans just do drive-by shootings.”

Even though King broke off their relationship in 2011, she kept in contact with Sterling and reached out to him after her father died in 2013. She says they met in person and Sterling offered her a job working in marketing for the Clippers. He later changed the job offer in Dec. 2013 and offered King a position as his personal caretaker/assistant. He told her she would be paid $10,000 a month, given a car and home, and receive a $100,000 bonus if she showed loyalty to him.

Of course, if an offer like that sounds like it has strings attached, this certainly did.

Despite the promise of all this money, King says Sterling only “dangled money” for sex and indicated he was bored of Stiviano. He tried to get King to arouse him sexually and bring in other people to help arouse him, too. He allegedly asked her to perform degrading sexual acts and began withholding her pay when she refused. We can only imagine what kind of “acts” he asked for.

King in the complaint says Sterling used to walk around naked with no regard. If that hasn’t grossed you out enough, get ready for this gem: Sterling supposedly offered her a $25,000 bonus if she could “get him off.” Sterling supposedly was too cheap to buy pills to help him perform sexually and told King he would get them from his doctor. And she thought this guy would actually pay her $25k to get him off? Guy won’t even pay for his zoom-zoom boom-boom pills!

I’m sure nothing could surprise you at this point, but there is more.

King alleges that Sterling would grab her butt and breasts in public.

Like Stiviano, King alleges that Sterling complained when she brought a black friend to a Clippers game.

Sterling fired King on May 7, 2014 after she protested his sexual and racist comments, she claims.

There really is such a strong history against Sterling, it’s hard not to believe everything that is alleged. But what did this woman think her job would entail if Donald was offering her that kind of money to be his assistant? There’s no way she was with him from ’05-’11 and didn’t know how he was. She’s just trying to smear him and get hers. And Sterling is seeing that if you do people wrong, it comes back to get you.

Here’s a video interview of Maiko Maya from 2011:

Here she is with Vinny Del Negro and Mark Cuban:

    Oh good grief! Married with children and you enter into a relationship with a disgusting, old, married man and use him for his money, and now with the hope of getting more you jump on the bandwagon and sue him because of his moral compass? I’m certainly not saying he is right, but isn’t there something in the law that says you can’t profit from a situation when your own hands are dirty? Haven’t you already gotten your piece of the pie? If anyone really wants to make him accountable for his actions, find a way to make him set up a scholarship fund for poor, black, deserving students being forced to grow up in the ghetto.

    Sounds to me like she wants to squeeze a little more gravy from the gravy train Why is it people wait for someone to be exposed, THEN they follow up with the lawsuit? If it was so hurtful to her, why didn’t she take action at the time these alleged incidents happened. It’s just another example of why we need torte reform in this country, so lawyers cannot work on a contingency basis and make baseless claims hoping to extract a huge settlement for silence…

    We all know this woman is a gold digger! She wasn’t complaining when he was giving her money…… She clearly wants to try and cash in on Sterling’s fall from grace. She doesn’t deserve a penny! She knew what she was doing from the beginning and had no problem with it when the cash was flowing!!!

    Every time I click on an article full of Sterling dirt, I regret it. It’s like a flickering window into a sort of shadow world, some alternate reality or parallel multiverse where everything’s more or less the same as here except people are actually made out of garbage and poo.

    It was only a matter of time before Allred found a way to inject herself into this one. The accuser instantaneously lost all credibility with me the moment she retained Allred as her lawyer.

    Yeah, he treated you sooo badly, that you hung around for 6 years…and now, the whole world knows you’re a prostitute and your husband is a cuckold. Smooth move Ex-lax.

    Really interesting Mark Cuban was doing a lot of talking in that skank Sterlings defense I wonder if He was using these women as a jump off as well. …..hum ! things that make you go hummm!! This girl is not looking for a pay day because there really is no pay day for even agreeing to sleep with such a vile ugly man ( and I am just talking about how Sterling looks) no this jump off is looking for revenge …..but I cant say the guy does not deserve this because he really is a vile snake.

    Stop defending that vile POS Sterling he deliberately went looking for these women and left his own wife in the dust he deserves all he gets and more.

    Ok people lets get something clear lets stop insulting gold diggers they are a lot smarter …..most of them end up as wives on the arms of these distasteful men and then we quit looking at them because they are no longer opportunists they are usually smart and have a game play and hustle going on… with a goal…… take a look at Sterlling’s wife those are the real Gold Diggers
    …No these skanky hos ! are not smart they are just plain and simple thirsty hookers ! a huge difference. They just look at the immediate returns…and they don’t care what they do to get it. And a stupid idiot like Sterling is no victim he is just not as smart as most of his peers who see these ho’s for what they are. They will jump them then pay and move to the next. This fool decided to try and make a relationship out of it and got burned not once but twice now. Bottom line is they all deserve each other.

    AMEN !!

  • Gary Baker

    Donald Sterling knew exactly what he was doing messing around with these young women.,, He gave them money, which they wanted and he knew it, and it was considered pennies to the amount of cash he has…. Sterling is no idiot, he knows if he wasn’t wealthy those women wouldn’t even look in his direction!! Sterling did what a lot of wealthy men do…. dangle cash to get young women to sleep with them!! Same old story!!
