This should add another layer of convolution to the V. Stiviano and Donald Sterling relationship. Stiviano has just filed for new legal action in her countersuit against Donald Sterling’s wife, Shelly Sterling, claiming that Sterling is gay and paid her to pretend to be his mistress.
Stiviano is defending herself against claims she took unauthorized gifts from Sterling, and is instead claiming that the expensive cars and property were given to her as compensation for her fake-mistress services. Stiviano claims 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.”
In the legal document filed with LA County Superior Court, Stiviano says that Shelly was “”acutely aware of [Donald's] sexual orientation and condoned same [sic] as well as acknowledged and approved [Donald's] gifts of money [to Stiviano].” Stiviano is also suing for defamation, on the basis that the Sterlings called her a thief in the media, and is demanding $10 million in compensation.
