Golden State Warriors' Monta Ellis sued for sexting harassment
Another sexual scandal rocks the NBA! Golden State Warriors' guard Monta Ellis is being sued by a former Warriors employee for sexual harassment. Erika Smith said Ellis bombarded her with suggestive text messages before sending her a photo of his genitals. Smith worked for the community relations department for the Warriors. She said Ellis sometimes sent her several lewd messages a day using a 'secret cellphone', starting from November 2010. Smith said she rejected Ellis' advances, but was worried she would not be believed if she came forward. Ellis' wife Juanika Ellis found out about the steamy texts and confronted Smith, apparently believing that Smith instigated the texts. Eventually, Smith was fired from her job. Smith is suing not just Ellis, but also the Golden State Warriors for wrongful dismissal among other charges.
