V Stiviano says Donald Sterling is gay

Donald Sterling girlfriend V Stiviano

V. Stiviano is getting down and dirty when it comes to her legal dispute with Donald Sterling. For her latest act, she accused the former Clippers owner of being gay.

You may recall that the tension between Stiviano and Sterling began when Shelly filed a lawsuit trying to get back the cars, property and gifts (valued at over a few million dollars) that Donald gave to Stiviano.

After the suit was filed against her, Stiviano set out to ruin Sterling and successfully did so. Not only did her efforts lead to Sterling losing the Clippers, but she now is accusing the longtime team owner of being gay.

According to TMZ Sports, Stiviano says she never was a sexual partner of Sterling and that she was just a cover-up for the man being gay.

In the docs, Stiviano states she was “not ever a sexual partner of Donald T. Sterling” and “believes that [Sterling] is a homosexual and enjoys sexual acts and or sexual congress with males.”

Stiviano also says Shelly Sterling was “acutely aware of [Donald's] sexual orientation and condoned same as well as acknowledged and approved [Donald's] gifts of money [to Stiviano].”

This appears to be Stiviano hitting below the belt in a mud-slinging effort to get her way, or at the least a nice settlement from the Sterlings. She also says the gifts she received were not community property and therefore hers to keep.

Perhaps it’s allegations like these that Stiviano had in mind when she said, “Let the games begin!”

Despite Stiviano’s allegations, there is some evidence that indicates Sterling is heterosexual. Remember the former employee who sued Donnie boy? She detailed some pretty gross, explicit sexual stories that suggest Donnie is pretty hetero. Also keep in mind that Stiviano hinted on Instagram that she has a child with Sterling. It would have been pretty hard for them to have kids without ever having sex, unless they used artificial insemination.

NBA files countersuit against Donald Sterling

Donald SterlingThe sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer became official on Tuesday, and Donald Sterling may end up having to give some of the $2 billion it generated back to the NBA. According to the Los Angeles Times, the NBA has filed a counterclaim against Sterling and the Sterling Family Trust seeking to recover damages stemming from the 80-year-old’s racially charged audio recordings.

The NBA’s suit is in response to Sterling suing the NBA for $1 billion after he was banned from the league for life back in May. As part of the NBA’s constitution, Sterling is supposed to compensate the league for any legal costs that stem from his detrimental conduct. The league is also seeking compensation for the money it spent to investigate Sterling’s comments and impose discipline on him.

In addition, the NBA has argued in its counterclaim that Sterling didn’t have the right to file a lawsuit against the league on behalf of the Sterling Family Trust to begin with. Two doctors declared Sterling mentally incapacitated before his antitrust suit, which means he did not have control of the trust.

We all know Sterling loves a good court battle, but it doesn’t seem like he is going to end up on the winning end of many of these cases. He has already lost his team and the NBA doesn’t seem concerned that he has any legal ground to stand on.

NBA announces sale of Clippers to Steve Ballmer has been finalized

Steve BallmerThe NBA announced on Tuesday that the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has been finalized. The $2 billion transaction had previously been approved by the NBA Board of Governors, and Tuesday’s closing officially makes Ballmer the team’s new governor.

The finalization of the sale was made possible by a California court confirming that Shelly Sterling had the power to sell the Clippers on behalf of the Sterling Family Trust. Sterling was previously deemed mentally incapacitated by two doctors and was removed as co-trustee. The 80-year-old fought the ruling in court but was unsuccessful.

While it would not be surprising if Sterling continued to explore avenues to sue the NBA, it sounds like he does not have much legal ground to stand on.

The Clippers are planning to hold a fan festival at the Staples Center on Monday to introduce Ballmer as the team’s new owner. Doc Rivers and the Clippers players will be in attendance.

“This is an amazing new day in Clippers history,” Rivers said Tuesday. “I couldn’t be more excited to work together with Steve as we continue to build a first-class, championship organization. I am already inspired by Steve’s passion for the game, his love of competition and desire to win the right way and I know our players and fans are going to be inspired as well.”

Ballmer said in a statement that he will be “hardcore” in trying to put the Clippers in a position to win.

“I am humbled and honored to be the new owner of the Los Angeles Clippers,” he said. “Clipper fans are so amazing. I will be hardcore in giving the team, our great coach, staff and players the support they need to do their best work on the court. We will do whatever necessary to provide our fans and their families with the best game-night experience in the NBA.”

Adam Silver was confident the NBA would force Sterling out from the second his racist audio rant went viral. The new NBA commissioner made good on his promise.

V. Stiviano hints on Instagram she has kid with Donald Sterling

Do V. Stiviano and Donald Sterling have a 4-year-old daughter together? That’s what Stiviano seems to be hinting on her Instagram account.

In what could turn out to be possibly the biggest bombshell of the entire Stiviano-Sterling saga, Stiviano posted a picture of a young girl on her Instagram account and implied that Sterling is the baby’s father.

Stiviano erased her original caption for the photo, but you can see it in the screenshot below:

V Stiviano kid Instagram

In the caption, Stiviano writes that the child, who is dressed in pink with a Clippers hat, is nearly four years old. She talks about dropping news about the father at a Clippers game or perhaps New Year’s.

She also wrote “Let the games began” in all caps. If those words look familiar, it’s because she used the exact same phrase before she went after Sterling the first time with the racist comments.

She also supposedly wrote she’s happy the sale went through because of what it could mean for her child support checks.

If the two have a child together, that would absolutely help explain everything. That would explain why Stiviano was so upset over being cutoff, and why Sterling would buy her a home and multiple cars. And that would explain why she wanted to get back at him.

Stiviano and Sterling with a kid? Gross.

Chris Paul talked with Doc Rivers about boycott if Donald Sterling remains Clippers’ owner

Clkippers warmups

Chris Paul says he has talked with head coach Doc Rivers about a potential boycott if Donald Sterling remains the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers when the NBA season begins.

Paul, who is a leader on the Clippers and president of the NBAPA, told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman that it’s “unacceptable” if Sterling is still the team’s owner when the season begins. To that end he talked with Rivers about the possibility of sitting out games.

“That’s something me and Doc are both talking about,” Paul told Goodman Thursday. “Something has to happen, and something needs to happen soon — sooner rather than later.”

Interim Clippers CEO Dick Parsons testified that Rivers has said he does not want to coach the team if Sterling is the owner. Paul also intends to talk with his teammates about the possibility of a boycott.

Sterling is in the middle of a lawsuit aimed to determine whether his wife acted improperly in selling the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. His hope is to have the sale of the team to Ballmer blocked. He also filed a lawsuit in May alleging that the NBA acting improperly with their harsh punishments against him. As if those two suits weren’t enough, Sterling filed a third suit this week in which he accuses wife Shelly, the NBA and Commissioner Adam Silver of defrauding him.

It looks like Sterling aims to get the sale of the team stuck in a legal jam that will allow him to linger as team owner for as long as possible.

Paul’s words are probably more of a threat than reality. Perhaps the thinking is that if the Clippers’ leaders can present the real possibility of a boycott, the legal system would have to answer these problems sooner rather than later.

Donald Sterling lost his dang mind in court, berated lawyer, called out wife and NBA

Donald SterlingDonald Sterling lost his dang mind in court Tuesday when he testified in the case regarding his removal as owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Donald’s wife, Shelly, had her husband examined by two doctors in May who both declared he was mentally unfit to run the team. As a result, Shelly became the sole controller of the Sterling Family Trust — which owned the Clippers — and received the NBA’s blessing to sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Sterling is suing and saying he was not legally removed as owner of the team.

The man who initially made his career and name as a lawyer was in peak condition Tuesday and as combative as you could imagine while testifying in court. ESPN’s Arash Markazi live-tweeted the testimony and described Sterling as “combative” and “argumentative.” Some of the quotes indicate Sterling called out his wife, the NBA and the opposing lawyer.

Take a look at some of these gems as described by Markazi.

Report: Donald Sterling went out for drinks with doctor after mental capacity exam

Donald SterlingDonald Sterling is in the process of trying to prove that he is still capable of running the Los Angeles Clippers. Prior to Shelly Sterling negotiating a sale of the team with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, Donald was declared mentally incapacitated when he couldn’t perform simple tasks like numbering a clock or spelling words backwards.

According to ESPNLosAngeles.com’s Ramona Shelburne, Sterling will now argue that the findings of one of the doctors who examined him are invalid. Why? Because the doc supposedly went out for dinner and drinks with Sterling, his wife and a family friend after the exam.

In court documents filed last week, Donald Sterling’s attorneys said that “it was unclear at what point a medical examination ceased and a social interaction began, with the consumption of alcoholic beverages taking place.”

(Sterling’s attorney Bobby Samini) said Monday night that when the doctor in question is cross-examined during the four-day trial that is set to begin July 7, he would ask whether “any part of your professional evaluation would take into consideration the conversation you had with him at the Polo Lounge.”

Sterling’s attorneys have decided that they will now examine whether Shelly Sterling followed the correct procedure outlined in the Sterling Family Trust regarding competency. In other words, Sterling’s legal team will focus on the exam procedure itself rather than whether he is actually mentally competent.
