Would You PAY OFF A Mistress? BBW Tasha Marbury & Husband DID! [VIDEO]

Well, well. Often times when we hear stories like this we say they’re too good to be true. In this case, the story of NBA player Stephon Marbury and newest BBW cast member Tasha Marbury paying off Stephon’s mistress Thurayyah Mitchell is TRUE! When I heard this story and saw the clip below I was taken aback because the mistress story is one that I unfortunately know. I get why they paid her off to protect Stephon’s image but could it be me. Seeing as we don’t know the FULL situation, even the bits and pieces we do know, makes me scrunch up my face and HELL NAWL!

If the mistress wanted to be paid, I’d pay her a shiny cooper penny. It takes two to tango and they are both in the wrong and offering to pay for her silence is silly. If I was in the situation, I’d have my PR company spinning the hail out of the story so if and when Thurayyah came forward it wouldn’t even be news, but that’s me. What would you do if you and your significant other were in this predicament?  (BTW, I tried to find a pic of Thurayyah but couldn’t. I’ll keep researching LOL)

 

Stephon Marbury carried on an affair with chef Thurayyah Mitchell, and offered her nearly $1 million so his wife and the Knicks — who were dealing with their own sexual-harassment problems at the time — wouldn’t learn about it, court papers disclose. The Coney Island native hired Mitchell as a “private chef” in January 2006, the same month the team and coach Isiah Thomas were hit with a $10 million sexual-harassment suit by one of their executives, Anucha Browne Sanders.

“Starbury” fired her in 2006, and Mitchell complained that she’d been the victim of sexual harassment. Marbury said he had considered their relationship “consensual” — but offered her $900,000 to keep her mouth shut. Marbury, however, stopped making the payments in January 2010 after he’d already shelled out about $600,000 and, at Mitchell’s request, the case went to an arbitrator. “It is uncontroverted that during Ms. Mitchell’s employment, she had a sexual relationship with Stephon Marbury which she described as occurring on approximately five occasions,” the arbitrator found. Mitchell said the star “made her believe that ‘keeping him happy’ was a requirement of keeping her job,” the ruling said. The other requirement was cooking for his wife, Latasha, and their three kids.

The arbitrator awarded Mitchell $330,000, saying she could have sued Marbury or sold her story for more money than she received, and that Marbury had his eyes open when he made the deal. The filing became public yesterday, after Mitchell’s lawyers asked a judge to enforce the award. During the arbitration proceedings, the point guard testified that the money was to “buy Ms. Mitchell’s silence” because “a revelation of Mr. Marbury’s extramarital affair would embarrass him with his wife and children.”

He said he was also concerned because the tryst happened at a time the team “was in a very public investigation involving claims of sexual harassment.” Lawyers for Marbury, who now plays in China, and Mitchell did not return calls. He’s still married, and his wife is reportedly in talks to join the cast of the reality show “Basketball Wives.” via New York Post
