Driver slaps Knicks’ Eddy Curry with sex suit
Is Eddy Curry gay?
The New York Knicks center is being sued by his former driver, who claims the 6-foot-11 tried to solicit sex from him.
David Kuchinsky, who worked for the Knicks hoopster for three years, also accuses Curry of making him do “humiliating tasks” and addressing him with racial slurs such as “f—ing Jew,” “cracker,” “white slave,” “white devil” and “grandmaster of the KKK.”
Curry denied the accusations.
“I’m shocked, really,” Curry told Fox Sports. “He approached my friends a while back, trying to get money. I just never, ever thought it would go past what it did, which was just idle threats, money-or-else kind of stuff.”
Kuchinsky began working for Curry in October 2005. He quit last October, according to his attorney, Matthew Blit.
Curry’s lawyer, Kelly Saindon, said Kuchinsky’s drive to make such allegations is that he recently was terminated without notice. Blit opposed, alleging that his client quit in response to Curry’s sexual advances.
In a lawsuit filed Monday in federal court, the former driver claimed that Curry owed him $68,000 in back wages and another $25,000 for charges made on Kuchinsky’s credit card.
The lawsuit states that Curry approached his driver in the nude on two separate circumstances and “kept asking him to look and to touch him,” said Kuchinsky’s lawyer.
Curry, who has played just 2 minutes, 38 seconds this season because of knee injuries, said that Kuchinsky had contacted a friend of his, “and every time, it was something different.”
“It’s like a prime example of you got to watch who’s around you,” Curry said. “This is a guy who I really thought he was my friend up until the last four, five months. I can’t even believe this happened. … I can’t believe it went this far. I can’t believe someone would represent something like that.”
