Stephon Marbury has finally given his ex-mistress enough money to keep her mouth shut!
Last October, Stephon agreed to pay his former chef Thurayyah Mitchell $900,000 if she kept quiet about their 2006 affair. After news of the hush money broke, the story didn’t get much more attention.
That is until his wife Tasha Marbury made her debut on season 5 of “Basketball Wives” back in August. Her cast mate Suzie Ketcham asked about the affair, which Evelyn Lozada used for a story line in her book The Inner Circle, and the show once again shed light on the situation.
What everyone had assumed was old news actually turned out to be unfinished business. TMZ.com reports that Stephon that Stephon only paid Thurayyah about $550,000 when he stopped sending her checks. Not satisfied with being short changed, the personal chef hauled him into court and the former NBA player was ordered to pay the balance of their deal.
Legal documents now state that Stephon, who has just signed on for three more seasons with the Beijing Ducks, has paid $341,153. That sum should effectively end all of their dealings with each other.
Neither Stephon nor Tasha have spoken about the final installment of the pay out at this time.
