Donald Sterling Gifted The Luxe Crib To Mistress V. Stiviano
The $2 million luxury Los Angeles condo at the center of the nasty legal battle between Donald Sterling, his wife and his alleged mistress V. Stiviano is back on the market.
The plush West LA pad is now for sale just months after a judge ordered V. Stiviano to pay back $2.6 million dollars to the Sterling’s for gifts that the former Clippers owner showered her with over the years.
Shelly Sterling sued Stiviano demanding the alleged mistress pay back millions gifted by Donald to her over the years – with Mrs. Sterling saying those gifts were bought with assets she shared with her husband.
The nasty court battle dragged on for months and revealed that Donald had showered Stiviano with luxury presents during their relationship, including a Bentley, Range Rover, Ferrari and even bought her a $1.8 million dollar Los Angeles duplex.
Stiviano claimed in court documents that she was Donald’s “beard,” saying the former Clippers owner was gay and their relationship was all for show, and the gifts were made in exchange for her being seen with him. She also claimed that Shelly was aware of her husband’s sexual preference along with the deal he had with her. Stiviano also argued that the presents that Donald bought her were purchased from his separate property not the couple’s community assets and therefore Shelly had no case against her.
Then in April, the LA judge presiding over the case ordered Stiviano to pay $2.6 million dollars back to Sterling family trust. The order stated the other woman was to repay $800,000 in luxury cars and gifts along with the $1.8 million dollar condo Donald purchased for her.
The judge didn’t buy any of Stiviano’s arguments including one that her family members had contributed to a portion of the luxury condo’s payments. The judge said that after analyzing records from Sterling’s company plus testimony in court, it was clear that Donald purchased it for her by himself without any help.
The billionaire wife publicly stated she was ecstatic about the outcome of the lawsuit and sources said the legal battle was purely about getting even with the woman who harmed her in so many ways over the years.
According to official records, the six bedroom, four bathroom, 6,250 sq. ft. home was purchased for $1.8 million dollars back in December 2013.
