The NY Post reports that former Knicks’ player Stephon Marbury had an affair with his personal chef Thurayyah Mitchell and he hired her back in 2006. She was fired that same year after the affair but now claims it was sexual harrassment. Mitchell claims in a statement that Marbury:
“made her believe that ‘keeping him happy’ was a requirement of keeping her job”.
Marbury offered her $900,000 for her to keep quiet about the affair as Marbury is married (his wife might actually be on BBW). Mitchell took the offer (so much for “harrassment“) and he was giving her money in payments but stopped in Januar 2010:
He stopped making payments in January 2010, after he’d only given her $600,000. The cook then sent the matter to arbitration.
A court official ruled that Stephon had to fork over an additional $330,000 because Thurayyah could have sued the former New York Knicks point guard or sold her story for way more than he had offered her. -s2smagazine
