    In a statement released earler, L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, with the full support of the Clippers organization, denies knowledge of the recording of him allegedly going on a racist rant against black people and says that he is not racist:

    From The Clippers Organization

    “We have heard the tape on TMZ.  We do not know if it is legitimate or it has been altered.  We do know that the woman on the tape..who we believe released it to TMZ, is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family, alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would ‘get even.

    Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings. It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life.

    He feels terrible that such sentiments are being attributed to him and apologizes to anyone who might have been hurt by them.”

    According to CBS LA, Sterling’s wife, Rochelle Sterling, filed the suit against Stiviano back in March.

    Rochelle Sterling accuses Stiviano as being the type of woman who “engages in conduct designed to target, befriend, seduce and then … receives as gifts transfers of wealth from older men whom she targets for such purposes.”

    According to the suit, Stiviano has several aliases, including Vanessa Perez, Monica Gallegos and Maria Valdez.

    Stiviano reportedly met Sterling at the Super Bowl game in February 2010 and that same year began a sexual relationship with him, the suit states.

    The suit asks for a return of all cash, land, expensive cars and other items that under California law are the community property of the Sterlings.
