Shelly and Donald Sterling were married in 1957, though they have been estranged for years. But it sounds like Shelly may be prepared to finally divorce Donald.
TMZ reports that Shelly hired prominent divorce attorney Laura Wasser several months ago to prepare the gold digger lawsuit against Donald’s girlfriend V. Stiviano. Wasser is the same lawyer who filed divorce papers on behalf of Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Bryant. TMZ says a divorce seems imminent.
Though the two have been estranged for years and don’t sit together when attending Clippers games, the final straw for Shelly supposedly came last year when their 31-year-old son, Scott, died of a drug overdose. She apparently felt like he was more concerned with Stiviano than grieving with the family.
Additionally, Shelly put out a statement that differs from what she told Lisa Salters at the Clippers-Warriors playoff game Sunday.
“Our family is devastated by the racist comments made by my estranged husband. My children and I do not share these despicable views or prejudices.”
In comments to Salters earlier in the day, Shelly said she was not sure if it was her husband’s voice on the audio recordings. I guess she’s sure now.
