A man identifying himself as Maserati — an admitted pimp, and associate of Donald Sterling — tells CNN’s Don Lemon the embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner has a predilection for “light skinned” women “of color.”
“I’ve known him to always want a woman of color,” said Maserati, who claimed to have first met Sterling when he ran a Vegas escort service, and held a friendship for him for five years thereafter.
Maserati, who is black, made clear he was the source of the two world exclusive videos Radar released this month — and did not receive a penny for them.

In the tapes, Maserati swore he was “not a racist” and attributed his actions to that of a misguided Romeo, saying his offensive comments about black people were part of his schtick to try and seduce V. Stiviano.
“I’m talking to a girl … I’m trying to have sex with her,” he told his now-former pal.
Maserati said that he’s since forsaken the beleaguered octogenarian for his bigoted views.

"You don’t speak that type of language and not be racist.”
