In addition to a lawsuit filed against the Sterlings for defamation, V. Stiviano has alleged in a separate legal filing that Donald Sterling is gay. She claims that items she received (cars, property, etc.) were in exchange for being Donald's beard. The reasoning for the lawsuit (allegedly) is because Donald's wife Shelly was seeking a return of the aforementioned items because (in Shelly's opinion) Donald didn't have the right to give them to her. Stiviano states that she never had sex with Donald because she "believes that [Sterling] is a homosexual and enjoys sexual acts and or sexual congress with males." She also said that Shelly knew about it.
We're not saying Donald Sterling's life has been turned upside down over the past several months, but yeah, probably wishing he'd never met Stiviano.
