V. Stiviano now has to pay up for being Donald Sterling’s mistress. Sterling’s wife, Shelly, has won a lawsuit against Stiviano and she now has to pay her $2.6 million, AP reports.
Stiviano willingly accepted luxury gifts from former L.A Clippers owner Donald Sterling when he was married to Mrs. Sterling and in court on Monday (Apr. 13) Judge Richard Fruin Jr. ruled that she now has to pay Mrs. Sterling back for the money that was spent on her during their two-and-a-half year affair. Stiviano was spoiled with a Ferrari, a Range Rover, a Bentley and a duplex , totaling up to $2.6 million. The judge ruled that duplex also has to be given to The Sterlings.
“Shelly is thrilled with the decision,” attorney Pierce O’Donnell said. “This is certainly a victory for the Sterling family whose funds were dissipated by Donald to lavish millions of dollars of gifts on a conniving mistress.”
V’s lawyer, Mac Nehoray, tried to claim that the Sterlings were separated when she was receiving these lavish luxuries but the judge dismissed those claims. The Sterlings have been married for over 60 years.
Mrs. Sterling had filed the lawsuit in March of 2014, a month before the recording surfaced of Donald Sterling telling V. Stiviano not to bring African Americans to his games.
