In a new explosive second recording, the Los Angeles Clippers owner, Donald Sterling reveals what he says is the true reason for his hateful comments — He wanted to sleep with his assistant and rumored mistress, V. Stiviano. In this new recording, Sterling tries to explain away his vile words with empty excuses and crude sexual comments.
Sterling lavished his personal assistant Stiviano with luxury gifts for years, but sources insist she never slept with him in return. And according to the new recording acquired by Radar, he was trying to change that when he launched into his racist rant during a phone conversation with Stiviano.
Sterling, 81, was previously recorded telling Stiviano, 31,
“It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people … You can sleep with [black people] … The little thing I ask you is not to promote it …”
In the new recording, Sterling’s first since the scandal broke, the disgraced NBA owner explains his twisted reasoning for those statements.
“The girl is black,” Sterling says. “I like her. I’m jealous that she’s with other black guys. I want her. So what the hell. Can’t I in private tell her, ‘I don’t want you to be with anybody?’”
In particular, Sterling had exploded over a photo Stiviano posted on Instagram of herself posing with Magic Johnson.
