Disgraced NBA Mogul Donald Sterling Is Gay, Claims “Hired Beard” V. Stiviano

f090ba79c5c1c210520f6a7067001363-1024x845In addition to being a mentally incapacitated racist, disgraced former Clippers owner Donald Sterling is apparently also gay, claims his former mistress V. Stiviano in official court documents obtained by TMZ this week.

The bombshell allegations come in a counter-suit filed by Stiviano in response to Sterling’s wife Shelly, who is suing the former “personal assistant” for essentially being a gold digger who shook her husband down for millions of dollars in “unauthorized” lavish gifts, including a $2 million home, a Ferrari, and a closet full of designer clothing.

But Stiviano’s counter-suit claims that was not the case, and that she never had sex with Sterling because she was hired as an “opposite-sex escort” to conceal the fact that he “enjoys sexual acts and/or sexual congress with males.”

Stiviano also claims that Shelly was “acutely aware” of the arrangement they had, and “condoned” the gift-giving as appropriate payment for keeping the 80-year-old billionaire’s secret.

The counter-suit is seeking $10 million from the Sterling estate, claiming that Stiviano has been “defamed” by allegations that she is a fame whore. “She’s delusional,” Sterling’s lawyer, Max Blecher, told The News.

Perhaps the most important question we can ask ourselves is not whether Donald Sterling is actually gay, but rather, Why spend so much money on a beard? Taylor Swift would have probably done it for free.

    Oh please don’t let this be true!

  • Dakotahgeo

    For the sake of the GLBT community, please don’t Sterling be gay!!! However, the fact that Sterling’s wife condoned him having an ‘escort’ of female persuasion tells a lot about the whole troupe! I hope Stiviano gets the full $10 mil +!

  • unclemike

    We don’t want him.

  • money718

    Dammit. He did ping to me.

  • PeteP

    I’m pretty sure that if you are already married you don’t need a beard.

  • Cam


    That’s the part I don’t get, where he and his wife separated?? Becuase if you’re married it doesn’t seem like you would be bringing your girlfriend with you to the games.

    Why can’t the two of them just go away? Flush.

  • Kieran

    Let’s see, he’s a married 80 year old. Yeah, he definitely would need to have a beard at the games.

  • Masc Pride

    Think I remember TMZ reporting that Stiviano was a man. Of course TMZ is TMZ, but Stiviano does have the typical Muppet/[email protected] look.

  • michael mellor

    If she allowed herself to be hired as his escort, what does it say about her? Her own values need to be examined.

  • Chris

    Oh no, you don’t. I say we sue her for defamation of character — ours.

  • mcflyer54

    Why would Taylor Swift want him? Who’s gonna buy a song trashing an 80 years man?

  • LadyL

    @PeteP: @Cam: No, I totally get it; it’s overcompensation. For men of Sterling’s generation, fear of discovery is bottomless.
    I mean, you know, assuming this is true.

  • LadyL

    @Chris: LOL! Well said!

  • jd2222248

    The GLBT family does not want him on our team. We have met our quota this month. Just joking!

  • Cam


    I think you nailed it.
