Sixers co-owner Marc Leder, the millionaire whose house was the backdrop for Mitt Romney’s 47% comment and who throws wild sex parties at his Hampton residence, is the subject of a NY Post story today revealing that he has a 10-month-old love child with an "Upper West Side woman": [NY Post]
We are told divorced millionaire Leder, 50 — who has previously appeared in Page Six for his sexually charged Hamptons parties — has a 10-month-old daughter with the attractive blonde in her early 40s, whom we’ve agreed not to name.
A source told us, “Marc and the lady, a single working woman, have had a longtime on/off affair and she became pregnant. There was a wrangle over money, but they have reached a generous and amicable agreement for child support through lawyers. Marc has also put the mother and his child up in an apartment on West 57th Street.”
Can’t quite figure out why this is news, since I’d imagine most millionaire NBA team owners who host presidential candidate fundraisers and throw wild sex parties in the Hamptons have at least one love child, perhaps more. But, I thought you might enjoy.
In a statement to the Post, Leder, whose marriage broke apart in 2009 when his now ex-wife admitted to cheating on him with a 23-year-old tennis coach (so perfect), acknowledged the love child (I love that phrase, it just sounds… dirty), saying, “I became the proud parent of a beautiful little girl last January with my former girlfriend of a year. We maintain a close relationship, and are committed to raising our daughter jointly.”
That’s all well and good, but next, I want to see Leder invite Josh Harris to one of his crazy orgies… because have you seen Josh Harris or listened to him speak? It’s like Buzz Killington reading a book report with a sinus infection. A rager in the Hamptons every once in a while might do him some good.
