New York Knick Eddy Curry Hit with Gay Sex Harassment Lawsuit

Via The New York Post:

Kuchinsky_curry“Knick center Eddy Curry was slapped with a shocking sexual-harassment suit yesterday by his former driver, who claims the 6-foot-11 hoopster tried to solicit gay sex from him. Stunning court papers charge that Curry, a married father of several kids, repeatedly approached chauffeur David Kuchinsky ‘in the nude,’ saying, ‘Look at me, Dave, look’ and, ‘Come and touch it, Dave.’ Curry, 26, also made Kuchinsky perform ‘humiliating tasks outside the scope of his employment, such as cleaning up and removing dirty towels [into which Curry had ejaculated] so that his wife would not see them,’ the Manhattan federal court suit says. Kuchinsky, 36, who is straight and Jewish, also alleges racism, saying Curry hurled slurs at him, including ‘f- – – ing Jew,’ ‘cracker,’ ‘white slave,’ ‘white devil’ and ‘grandmaster of the KKK.'”

Said Curry: “It’s false, and everyone who knows me knows I’m not a racist. I’ve never made a comment like that, playing, or nothing. . . . That’s incredible, man.”

Kuchinsky wants $98,000 and compensatory damages.

    A 26-year-old is going to chase a 38-year-old? Sounds odd.

    Here are some facts about the driver:

    “Now would also be an excellent time to mention that Kuchinsky is an ex-felon who also got three years of probation in a 2004 resisting-arrest case in New Jersey. And, withouth fail, this all has to do with money. Kuchinsky claims that Curry owes him $68,000 in unpaid wages, as well as $25,000 in expenses for which Curry never repaid him.”

    Truth is stranger than fiction. A jury will have to decide this one.

    “It’s false, and everyone who knows me knows I’m not a racist. I’ve never made a comment like that, playing, or nothing. . . . That’s incredible, man.

    “Now, about those towels…”

  3. says

    …and onto those towels… his wife does laundry? What? Did he use the “good” gold paisley towels in the foyer guest powder room as a cum rag (again)? Will the man ever learn?

    So he denies the racism remarks but not the rest of it? Weird.

    And Noah, while it is important to know both sides, maybe Curry is counting on the fact that everyone dismisses Kuchinsky based on his past. Because he’s made mistakes in his past doesn’t mean he can’t be a victim now.

    Well, now. Remember that lunatic chauffer that claimed that President Obama had sex with him 20 years ago? And now this fool. Why is it that these chauffers are so tired looking? If it was a pretty Jewish guy (like a young Tony Curtis), I might think it was possible.

    Why not one of those slender, pretty, no body-hair white boys y’all always complain about in the magazine ads. They’re so pretty–they could be believable.

    I always laugh when men like Kuchinksy say they are straight. Straight is essentially a political label. Gay, to a certain extent, is also a political label. I would say that 90% of all self-described straight guys are bisexually oriented and that 50% of all self-described gay guys are bisexually oriented. Don’t fall for the “I’m straight” line from many men.

    “the 6-foot-11 hoopster tried to solicit gay sex from him”

    Maybe it would have been ok if the hoopster had tried to solicit straight sex from him? Gotta love the Post.

    Not to be nitpicky, Noah, but a 26-year-old chasing a 38-year-old isn’t particularly odd in the scheme of things. Doesn’t necessarily make it true but . . .

    Donny,

    I don’t disagree that people who’ve done wrong can’t be victims themselves. In fact, someone’s checkered history can make them targets of abuse because people will tend not to believe them. However, Andy did not include the accuser’s background, which should be noted nonetheless.

    Also, I did say that “truth is stranger than fiction,” and suggested that a jury will have to decide this.

    The whole story seems odd. Curry makes $9 mil a year. Why wouldn’t the guy pay his bills if he owes the guy money? Or, why wouldn’t he have his lawyer settle the case with a non-disclosure agreement?

    The whole case is a cluster. Curry and his lawyer should have squashed this before it became public.

    “hmmm 6ft 11″…damm – he is probabaly packing a THICK 10 to 12″ or more…WOW”

    Nah, height doesn’t always equal length and width…but when I guy has a super virile name like “REX”…well, that’s a sure sign of phallic powah!

  10. Jonathan says

    The usual way of cases like this is that the accuser has some sort of information that would embarrass the defendant at trial and is hoping the defendant would simply pay to make the whole thing go away without a trial.

    My first reaction to this is that the driver has evidence of homosexual activity with others that would be presented at trial to impeach the credibility of Curry claiming he isn’t gay and thus wouldn’t have done what the driver is accussing.

    It’s an out there theory, but it’s the first thing that popped into my mind.
