So apparently it pays WELL to stfu! Circulating through the sports and entertainment world currently is the news that NBA baller Stephon Marbury agreed to pay his former personal chef/side chick $900,000 to keep quiet about their short lived fling. According to news sources Marbury hired Thurayyah Mitchell back in 2006 as the personal chef for his family. The two alledgedly has consensual sex about 5 times after which Mitchell claims she felt pressured to have relations with her then boss (and Tasha Marbury’s husband) in order to keep her job. Stephon fired her shortly thereafter BUT…agreed to pay her the $900,000 if she would agree to keep quiet about the affair as to not embarrass him or his family. Fair trade you say? Soo then, why are we talking about it now you ask?
Oh…because alledgedly after sticking with the agreement up to about the $600,000 mark, ol’ Stephon decided to stop paying. Apparently, Ms. Mitchell wasn’t having that! She went to an arbitrator to get a ruling on the remaining $300,000 that she said she was owed…and won! The filing became public on friday after her lawyers asked a judge to enforce the award. There has been no official statement from Marbury himself but rumor has it that his wife Tasha will be on the next “Basketball Wives“. All I can say is that must’ve been some goood…nevermind. The M as always wishes all parties involved…the best. 😉
