UPDATE: V Stiviano supposedly lost the trial court. I find it hard to believe. Shelly and Donald Sterling claim V Stiviano got her "black and mexican" friends at the bank to put her name on the deed without Donald Sterling's knowledge. I just looked at the deed. The person who signed it works for Donald Sterling and is middle eastern. There was no bank, just a grant deed. There's no reason for a bank as I see no current bank loan. Sterlings lied in court. I bet they used their connections, money, power to influence the Judge. I've seen a lot of this in Los Angeles.
I don't see the court order yet. It's not final for another 15 days. As far as I can tell Donald Sterling gave those gifts freely just like he has to many other women. Shelly's known this for years. She tried to sue another ex-friend in the past. The cars were in the name of Stiviano and even had personalized plates with her name on them. Everyone knew they were gifts to her.
Below is the last MLS listing before Donald bought the property for Stiviano. You should be able to see all the pics. I looked at all the deeds and see nothing fishy until February 2014. Sterlings are trying to change a prior transfer. They also filed a lis pendis on the property. I'm sure this case will be appealed. I think the attorney did a fine job. It just smells like corruption.
Case update: Here are recent filings. Lots of legal filings.

By now most people have heard the racist rant by Donald Sterling to his then girlfriend V Stiviano aka Vanessa Stiviano, aka Maria Vanessa Perez aka V Stiviano Inc. Her real name is Maria Vanessa Perez born October 21, 1982. She legally changed her name in 2010 to V Stiviano. I pulled up the documents but will not post them. She is 31 years old and has been involved in a few lawsuits, DUI and possibly a divorce with a minor child. Her mother's maiden name is Perez.
I've met Donald Sterling quite a few times in the last 30 years at real estate events here in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, California. That sounds like his voice and what he says. He is creepy, disgusting, cheap, egomaniac, racist and will try to rip you off in a business deal. This I know personally.
Everyone in real estate knows he's racist against African Americans and Mexicans besides poor people. The Korean thing was new to me. Previously he said he was fine with "Asian" tenants. I hadn't worked with his people since the 1980's so I think the "no Koreans" is newer. His people would constantly ask me for buildings for him to buy but he didn't want any in "certain" areas if you know what I mean. I was going to give him two of my pocket listings on Wilshire then someone told me he's a total shark who'll try to take every single penny in the deal so I sold them to someone else. Here is the original TMZ audio.
Below is Donald Sterling's "official" reply to this mess. This is just spin and damage control most likely from Rochelle Sterling, Donald's wife through their rep. Stiviano's reply clearly states Donald is not a party to the action. The demurrer filed by Stiviano farther below is fantastic!
"Donald Sterling has come out swinging, with the Clippers organization right behind him ... saying he and his team don't know if the audio TMZ Sports released is legit ... but he says it does NOT reflect his views toward African Americans.
Sterling and the Clippers organization tell TMZ Sports, "We have heard the tape on TMZ. We do not know if it is legitimate or it has been altered."
The statement goes on ... We do know that the woman on the tape -- who we believe released it to TMZ -- is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family, alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would 'get even.'"
And the statement goes on, "Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings. It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life."
And there's this: "He feels terrible that such sentiments are being attributed to him and apologizes to anyone who might have been hurt by them.""
Below is the lawsuit which only Rochelle Sterling filed against V Stiviano. The Sterling family, Donald Sterling did not file this lawsuit. It was filed March 7, 2014. The audio was made April 9, 2014 AFTER the lawsuit was filed. Donald Sterling and V Stiviano were still boyfriend and girlfriend at this time. The audio was released April 25, 2014. Rochelle claims that Donald gave Stiviano community funds because they are still married. Donald has had girlfriends and has been giving them expensive gifts for years. Just because they are still legally married doesn't mean he can't spend his money as he likes. We're talking about pennies in relation to his overall wealth. I think it was the duplex that really pissed off Rochelle or maybe the fact that Donald is dating an African American Mexican.
Everyone knows that Sterling and his wife have been separated for years. The lawsuit states that Donald Sterling and Stiviano were dating at the time only the wife filed the lawsuit. Rochelle claims Stiviano is a gold digger. No duh. Rochelle states Stiviano induced Donald into giving her a $1.8M duplex 8837 W 4th St, Los Angeles, CA 90048, $240K cash, two Bentleys, a Range Rover and a Ferrari. All cars were worth about $500K. Rochelle never says embezzled. She says Donald gave her the items.

Stiviano filed a demurrer April 21, 2014. I just pulled it up and it proves everything I just said. It's below. In my opinion Rochelle doesn't have a case. Donald knowingly gave gifts to Stiviano. Wife knew all about it for four years. Donald has been doing this openly for almost 50 years, their entire marriage. I'd see him at events with young women and people would tell me he was still married to Shelly. Shelly obviously accepted this because he is so in your face with it. Shelly states that Stiviano has a history of doing this to old men. I don't see this history. I do see that she filed legal documents in forma pauperis, i.e. she claimed she is broke. She did this with her name change. She worked as a volunteer in the DA office at the time.

"Plaintiff's "husband" is the exquisitely involved "on top of his game" infamous real estate mogul, professional basketball team, the Los Angeles Clippers, owner who, in accord with the verified complaint of Mrs. Sterling…is alleged to have transferred voluntary gifts to Stiviano over four years. It is axiomatic that Mrs Sterling is not even hinting that her billionaire philandering husband had performed any clandestine acts behind her, as it is alleged that Mr Sterling was making gifts to V Stiviano since 2010. Mr Sterling who is infamous for his gold plated dalliances. At no time did Rochelle state "the exceptionally successful and business brilliant Donald T. Sterlng was duped, taken advantage of, cajoled or in any manner or fashion, outsmarted. Nowhere in the complaint is it alleged that defendant so acted nor that the feminine wiles of Ms Stiviano overpowered the iron will of Donald T. Sterling who is well known as one of the most shrewd businessmen in the world."
"Instead of chastising her philandering husband, let alone curtailing his carousing, Mrs Sterling seeks to punish the defendant who has done nothing wrong. Lawsuit and claims are in the theater of the absurd."
"This is an action brought by a very angry wife whose husband is a highly public figure and who is well known to be "keeping women" other than his wife and who has done so for very many years with a big toothy grin brandishing his sexual prowess in the faces of the Pararazzi and caring less what anyone else thought, the least of which, his own wife.
Donald T. Sterling, curiously not a party in this action, has flaunted that grotesque lifestyle in front of and in his wife's face for nearly their entire marriage of 50 years. The person least fooled and least affected and least "robbed of her due" is Mrs. Rochelle H. Sterling.
At a minimum, she has been complicit for over 50 years and, here, particularly, has "looked the other way" if not put hands over her mouth, covered her eyes and attempted to cover her ears. Further, this is not the "first rodeo" as the expression goes. Mr. sterling has been very publicly involved with numerous women time and time again, whether for a particularly short "contracted" period of time, or a near four (4) year relationship as is the alleged case in this matter. It is clear from past conduct, that Mrs. Sterling has at a minimum, either "enabled" Mr. Donald T. Sterling to do, over and over again what he does, or that she approved of the varied and many gifts as described in the complaint.
The "relationship" (whatever it may have been or not been) between Mr. Donald T Sterling and Ms. V Stiviano was open, notorious, obvious and long standing. Ms Stiviano attended hundreds of events, participated in myriad charity functions sponsored by Mr Sterling and was a veritable "fixture" at his business offices over the last four years. Mrs Sterling absolutely tacitly if not openly approved of the relationship and the gifts."
I'm sure this is going to be messy. Donald Sterling is a racist and everyone knows it. What he said about Magic Johnson was really horrible. I thought they were friends. They give success seminars together. Magic is a really nice guy. I don't blame him for feeling betrayed. Magic has done so much for the community and children. He is a true philanthropist. I knew him as he used to go to my gym and I'd see him at all the parties.
