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:

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.

Report: V. Stiviano assaulted by two men in New York

Donald Sterling girlfriend V StivianoV. Stiviano was allegedly assaulted by two men outside a hotel in New York on Sunday night, according to her agent. Stiviano’s attorney Mac Nehoray told CNN that Stiviano was leaving a restaurant near the Ganesvoort Hotel with her sister and friends when two men followed her and began yelling racial slurs.

Nehoray claims the men punched Stiviano several times and left her with swelling and redness on the right side of her face. He also said she is likely to file a police report on Monday.

As you know, Stiviano is responsible for the audio recording that exposed Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling as a racist and resulted in him being banned from the NBA for life. But last week, TMZ released a video from 2011 that showed Stiviano making her own racist remarks about African-Americans.

“I don’t understand black people,” she said. “You give them a little bit of money, they don’t know what to do with it. [Black people] just act crazy … they’re like, ‘Yo, I wanna put extra rims on top of my rims. And my rims are gonna turn around. I’m gonna call them spinners.’”

Regardless of what Stiviano has said or done, she doesn’t deserve to be attacked. If the alleged incident actually took place as her lawyer said it did, there should be consequences for the men involved.

Donald Sterling cut V Stiviano off, leading way to ‘let the games began’ text message

Donald Sterling girlfriend V StivianoDonald Sterling’s decision to cut off V. Stiviano paved the way for her explosive reaction, which included her (seemingly) leaking the racist audio of the Clippers owner to the media.

The Los Angeles Times obtained a text message conversation between a Clippers employee and Stiviano on April 9 that shows the employee explaining to Stiviano that she wouldn’t have tickets, parking or other hospitality for that evening’s Clippers game. That decision by Sterling to strip Stiviano of these benefits ticked her off, because she had an angry response and indicated plans to get even.

Upon being told she wouldn’t have tickets to the game, Stiviano indicated that she had found other ways to get to the game. She then sent a text that was punctuated with a warning: “LET THE GAMES BEGAN.”

That’s going to be my go-to line from now on. Any time I’m about to engage in a fight, let the games began!

Like Sterling said, he should have just paid her off. This is what he gets for being so cheap.

NBA: Donald Sterling tried to pay off V. Stiviano; Shelly Sterling is not his estranged wife

Donald SterlingThe NBA has submitted its formal written case against Donald Sterling, a 30-page report, as part of the league’s attempt to force the 81-year-old to sell the Los Angeles Clippers. The documents, which contain a number of serious allegations against Sterling, were reviewed by the Los Angeles Times.

One of the claims made by NBA investigator and former US attorney David Anders is that Sterling tried to pay off V. Stiviano to claim the audio recording had been altered. Sterling allegedly met with Stiviano on May 2 and offered to reimburse her for the embezzlement lawsuit his estranged wife Shelly Sterling filed against Stiviano several months ago if she said she had altered the tape.

“Mr. Sterling said that he would return the value of that payment to Ms. Stiviano through back channels,” Anders wrote in his report.

While Sterling eventually admitted it was his voice on the recording, the NBA claims he first told a league investigator he never said certain things that were featured in the recording. For example, Sterling allegedly tried to say he never asked Stiviano to stop posing for photos with black people and never told her not to bring Magic Johnson to games. The comments he later made about Magic make that harder to believe.

Perhaps more surprising is the NBA’s claim that Sterling and his wife Shelly are “not in any sense estranged.” Shelly has tried to separate herself from Donald since the audio was released by hiring a prominent divorce attorney and speaking out against the racist comments that were made. The NBA seems to think that is all a front.

Investigators stated that “significant evidence exists in the public record and otherwise that Mr. and Mrs. Sterling are not in any sense estranged.” The document said the couple attended nearly every home game this season together and were seen together in New Orleans for February’s All-Star Game.

The case also noted that the couple spent two days together immediately after the Stiviano recording went public, once emerging from a downtown restaurant where she appeared to answer “of course not” when a reporter asked if Donald Sterling was a racist.

Shelly and Donald are clearly viewed by the league as part of the same entity, and taking the team away from Donald and allowing Shelly to retain ownership is not the outcome the NBA is seeking. Sterling has until May 27 to respond to the NBA’s findings in writing.

V Stiviano spying, Donald Sterling kicked off boat in Clippers Gone Fishin’ photo

Clippers Gone Fishin

TNT’s “Inside the NBA” released their “Gone Fishin’” photos for the Clippers and Wizards Monday, and they were definitely winners. Especially the Clippers one.

What’s there not to love about the Clippers boat? First off, you have celebrities Billy Crystal, Don Cheadle, Ashton Kutcher and Oprah. And is that lifelong Clippers fan Frankie Muniz down in front? Sweet catch by Crystal, by the way.

Then you have Cliff Paul representing for State Farm. And the highlight, without a doubt, is V Stiviano in her Darth Vader reflector shield mask spying on the boat from the deck above. Nice camera, lady. And trying to fish with them is disgraced team owner Donald Sterling, chilling by his lonesome on the “SS Whole.” Swap the “W” for an “A” and you got yourself the perfect boat.

Below is the official Wizards “Gone Fishin’” photo:

Tommy Lasorda hopes V Stiviano gets hit by a car (Video)

Tommy Lasorda doesn’t wish any bad luck to V Stiviano, but the former Los Angeles Dodgers manager does hope the woman gets hit by a car.

It seems like a contradiction, but it makes total sense, you know?

Lasorda was in South Florida where he received an honorary degree from Northwood University. While he was there, he was interviewed by WPBF in West Palm Beach and shared that he is a longtime friend of Donald Sterling.

“I’ve been a friend of that guy’s for 30 years,” he said. “It doesn’t surprise me that he said those things. And he shouldn’t have said it. He just hurt himself by talking too much and doing things he shouldn’t be doing.”

You notice that part? Lasagna wasn’t surprised that Sterling said those things. Translation: everybody knew the dude was a raging racist. But then came the money shot:

“And I don’t wish that girl any bad luck but I hope she gets hit with a car.”

From now on, that will be my go-to line. I don’t wish that person any bad luck, but I hope they get hit by a car. Lovely.


Donald Sterling reportedly cancelled interviews with Barbara Walters, Anderson Cooper

donald-sterlingOn Friday, V. Stiviano sat down for an exclusive interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters to discuss Donald Sterling and her relationship with the Los Angeles Clippers owner.

We’ve yet to hear from Sterling, although it sounds like the original plan was for that to happen.

According to TMZ, Sterling spoke with both Walters and Anderson Cooper, but declined to go on camera for interviews because he “wasn’t prepared.”

During Stiviano’s sit-down with Walters, we heard her say she didn’t feel Sterling was racist and that he was hurting as a result of the scandal.

Eventually, Sterling will have to face the music and tell the world his side of the story. Until that happens, all we have are the words of the woman who made his remarks public and our imaginations.

Donald Sterling has, of course, been banned from attending NBA games by the league as punishment for his remarks and will not be present when the Clippers host the Golden State Warriors in game 7 of their first round playoff series. His wife Shelly, however, did attend and it apparently didn’t sit well with members of the Clippers organization, according to ESPN’s Arash Markazi.
