Donald Sterling is currently wrapped up in a legal battle with the NBA, but that doesn’t mean the Los Angeles Clippers owner is not going to enjoy his down time. Over the weekend, Sterling was spotted relaxing at the luxurious JW Marriott in Palm Springs, Calif.
A source told Radar Online that Sterling was cozying up with a new girlfriend, who happened to be an African-American woman. The two checked in on Friday and reportedly did not seem concerned with who spotted them.
“He didn’t seem to have a care in the world and it looked pretty clear why that chick was with him,” Radar’s source claimed. “They were being really affectionate with each other.”
While we don’t know if the young lady he was with was actually his girlfriend, we do know that Sterling was at the Marriott. A guy named Mark who was at the same hotel snapped a photo of Sterling strutting through the resort. He also managed to take a selfie with Sterling and his lady friend lounging in the background.
Mark wasn’t the only one who spotted the 80-year-old soaking up the sun.

A second source reportedly told Radar that he or she saw Sterling shopping with his new side piece at Saks Fifth Avenue in Palm Desert earlier that day. Does this guy seem worried to you?
Sterling is said to have lost control of the Clippers and yielded control of the Sterling Family Trust to his wife Shelly when he could not complete simple tasks like numbering a clock or spelling words backwards. Maybe he has decided that now is as good a time as any to enjoy life, regardless of the hatred surrounding him.
