V.Stiviano’s leaked audio recordings led to Donald Sterling’s expulsion from the NBA for life. Stiviano continues to stand by Sterling, but the disgraced LA Clippers owner says he wishes he’d given her hush money before it was too late. Per DuJour:
And while it could be weeks before any definite decisions are made about the future of the Clippers—Floyd Mayweather Jr., Oprah Winfrey, Matt Damon and Sean Combs are all said to be interested in buying the team—Sterling expressed remorse for the way his situation’s unfurled. Speaking of girlfriend Vanessa Stiviano, who released to the media audio footage of Sterling on a racist tirade, Sterling says, “I wish I had just paid her off.”
Expect to hear more from Sterling, who says he’s limiting himself to interviews with Barbara Walters and the NBA.
