Rochelle Sterling has not discussed divorce with Donald Sterling
In more divorce news, in an exclusive interview with Barbara Walters, Rochelle Sterling, the estranged wife of Donald Sterling, admits she has thought about divorce for the last 20 years and has even consulted with divorce lawyers, but she has not discussed divorce with Donald in years.
“For the last 20 years, I’ve been seeing attorneys for a divorce,” she said, laughing. “In fact, I have here– I just filed– I was going to file the petition. I signed the petition for a divorce. And it came to almost being filed. And then, my financial advisor and my attorney said to me, ‘Not now.'”
Rochelle admits most of the delay for the divorce stems from financial arrangements, but she said it will probably eventually happen. Rochelle also came to the defense of Donald Sterling suggesting some of the reasons for his recent racist outburst could have been due to an onset of dementia.
Shelly Sterling wants to keep her stake in Los Angeles Clippers
Shelly Sterling also said she would like to keep her stake in the L.A. Clippers team even if her estranged husband is forced to sale. Sterling said, “I will fight that decision. To be honest with you, I’m wondering if a wife of one of the owners, and there’s 30 owners, did something like that, said those racial slurs, would they oust the husband? Or would they leave the husband in?”
She notes she has been with the team for thirty-three years and not only is she passionate about the team, but she considers it a “legacy to my family.”
According to an NBA spokesman, however, “Under the NBA Constitution, if a controlling owner’s interest is terminated by a 3/4 vote, all other team owners’ interests are automatically terminated as well,” NBA spokesman Mike Bass said. “It doesn’t matter whether the owners are related as is the case here. These are the rules to which all NBA owners agreed to as a condition of owning their team.”
