Donald Sterling’s alleged ex-mistress and the woman who recorded the former Los Angeles Clippers owner’s racist comments has been ordered to move out of the $1.8 million duplex that she claims Sterling had given her.
V. Stiviano, 32, began moving her stuff from the L.A. duplex following a court ruling that Sterling paid for the condo, and other luxury items, with community money which he had no legal right to use without his estranged wife Shelly’s permission, reports TMZ.
On April 15, the judge ordered Stiviano to return the $1.8 million Beverly Hills duplex, several luxury cars, and stocks, totaling $2.6 million.
After helping heavily-tattooed men put her belongings in a truck, Stiviano drove off from the condo in a Hyundai, a step down from the expensive Ferrari she used to drive, reports the Daily Mail.
“I did it for justice,” Shelly said. “I think when somebody harms you in so many ways, justice has to prevail.”
The billionaire wife of the former Los Angeles Clippers owner said she plans to donate the proceeds to charity.
At the trial, 80-year-old Donald Sterling, said Stiviano had not contributed any money to the duplex that is currently under her name.
Sterling, a lawyer and businessman who made a fortune buying apartment buildings around L.A., said the house was supposed to be in the name of his family trust. He added that Stiviano inserted her name into escrow documents by befriending a Hispanic bank employee who added her name to a $1 million check, SCPR.org reported.
Sterling revealed that the cars — a Ferrari and Bentley — were intended to be loans, but put them under her name so she would be liable for any incidents that may occur.
"Shelly is thrilled with the decision. This is a victory for the Sterling family in recovering the $2,630,000 that Donald lavished on a conniving mistress,” Shelly Sterling’s lawyer, Pierce O’Donnell, said in a statement. “It also sets a precedent that the injured spouse can recover damages from the recipient of these ill-begotten gifts.”
