Donald Sterling had thrust the L.A. Clippers into the spotlight by making some inflammatory and really stupid comments. And continues to pay for it dearly.
He has continued to place his foot in his mouth at every turn.
But now, the Clippers are back in the news in a negative way, because their interim CEO Richard Parsons… has a secret love child!
The 66-year-old has been married to his wife Laura, 67, for 35 years!
He loves his wife, having flown to the East Coast to be with her during a medical procedure only just after being announced as the Clippers CEO.
But back in 2008 he put a baby in MacDella Cooper and got a secret love child out of the whole deal.
MacDella is a model and philanthropist and she says that Parsons loves his daughter Ella.
"Mr. Parsons is a wonderful man, and a great father to his daughter."
Hmm, we wonder if his wife knows about his love child… or if NBA Commissioner Adam Silver was aware when he put Parsons in charge of the team, saying:
"I believe the hiring of Dick Parsons will bring extraordinary leadership and immediate stability to the Clippers organization."
We WANT to assume he didn't know, because the last thing they'd want is another scandal to mar the team's name even more. Nobody would ever willingly put someone in that position when you know they had their own scandal brewing.
As for Parsons' thoughts on the matter? He said:
"This is a private matter and I prefer not to talk about it."
We guess if his wife knows, and the NBA Commissioner doesn't care, and he's a good father… then we guess it's kinda okay maybe??
We'll be interested to see how this one plays out.
