Donald Sterling finally files for divorce from wife Shelly
Donald Sterling has finally filed for divorce from wife Shelly after nearly 60 years of marriage.
TMZ reports that Donald filed the papers in Los Angeles Superior Court recently.
Shelly Sterling hired a divorce attorney last year to help her file the gold digging lawsuit against V. Stiviano. That case paid off for Shelly, as a judge ruled in her favor and said Stiviano owed her money. There was speculation that after hiring the divorce attorney Shelly would hit Donald with an official divorce, but that never happened. Now Donald has finally filed for the proceeding.
Donald and Shelly have been described as “estranged” for years, even though they have been married since 1955. Not only was Donald fooling around with Stiviano for a while, but he also was spotted out with a new gal pal last year.
Maybe now that one of the family’s biggest assets is gone — the Clippers — Donald felt he finally could split with Shelly without losing his entire empire.
Donald was pretty much forced to sell the Clippers after audio of his racist comments went viral last year. Stories about his and his wife’s racist ways began to trickle out from thereafter, though Shelly tried to distance herself from those allegations. Now it looks like she will be completely distanced from him.
