King, 41, has become a controversial figure in the Black Lives Matter and criminal justice reform movements after his racial identity was questioned. King's career has also been plagued by accusations of insincere motives and deception from his shady dealings.  

The new property, purchased by King's wife, Rai-Tonicia King, 41, in November 2020 for $842,000, is surrounded by lush, tall trees sitting on Farrington Lake.  It has 'a lakefront backyard' and gourmet kitchen, according to public records.

In June, the mother of Tamir Rice, a black 12-year-old who was shot and killed by a white police officer in Cleveland in 2014, took to Instagram to blast King for profiting off of her son's death and brand him an 'imposter.'

The post came shortly after King - who raised as much as $60,000 for Tamir's family after his death without their consent - posted a new podcast to his website titled 'I spoke to Samaria Rice this past week.' 

The episode seems to have since been deleted, and is no longer listed under the episodes for 'Breakdown with Shaun King.'

'Why do you think it's so important to tell folks we had a conversation?' Rice asked King in her Instagram post, which was captioned: 'For anyone that wants to know the truth.'

'Well we talked and everything you said was very toxic and uncomfortable for me to hear that you raised additional money, and then say you did not want to bother me,' she continued. 

'Personally, I don't understand how you sleep at night. I never gave you permission to raise nothing.'

'Along with the United States, you robbed me for the death of my son.'
