Report: Donald Sterling bought V. Stiviano four cars, millions in gifts
Former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling's gifts to his 32-year-old companion V. Stiviano totaled $3.6 million and included four cars, a Spanish-style house and $1.2 million in cash, according to a Los Angeles Times report.
Sterling is currently in a court battle with his wife, Shelly Sterling, over whether or not he used assets shared between the two to arrange for the gifts to Stiviano, which also included $200,000 in credit cards, Chanel bags, a Cartier bracelet and Louis Vuitton suitcase.
Shelly Sterling has asked a judge to require Stiviano to repay $2.8 million, according to the report. Shelly Sterling has alleged Stiviano is her husband's mistress, while Donald Sterling maintains the two are platonic friends.
The case is currently in Los Angeles County Superior Court. A judge is expected to rule in the case "soon," the report said.
Sterling also spent $1 on a donation to the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital as part of a purchase at a CVS store, the report said.
Last year, Sterling was removed as the owner of the Clippers after audio recordings emerged of him making racially insensitive remarks.
